Night Hotel

Located in a 1920’s building in the heart of midtown’s theatre district, this hotel was purchased by Vikram Chatwal for Hampshire Hotels and Resorts. The mission was to transform this property into “Gothic Gotham”. The result is a black and white synthesis of old-world style with 21st century custom designs and enhancements. Guests enter the lobby to find its walls clad in black glass tiles, its floors covered with Gothic lettered carpet, and a 100-foot-long opaline glass canopy above. It’s a mix of past, present and future that continues throughout the guest rooms, suites and public spaces.

Vault at Pfaffs

Under Broadway and Bleecker in downtown Manhattan is a sophisticated yet timeless gathering place refined for the modern day. This incarnation of the popular 1850s watering hole frequented by poet Walt Whitman carries on the tradition started by Charles Pfaff of serving only the finest drinks and food to guests in a true-to-New York establishment.
