I was recently lucky enough to stay at the Hudson Hotel in NYC, this boutique hotel was designed by the very talented Philippe Starck. I almost completely walked by the building entrance, you don't even realize the hidden gem of a hotel/bar until you reach the "lemon yellow" glass opening. As you enter the building you are greeted by what seems like an never ending escalator, but that's not the best part. As you get closer and closer to the top you catch a glimpse of the lobby which is basically a combination of glamourous treehouse and enchanted garden. 

The never ending escalator and it's green "glow"

This lobby is actually turned into a bar at night, it was completely packed with people when we checked in.
magic treehouse hotel lobby
You can see the magical garden from every room on the main floor.

This is where we enjoyed the most delicious and priciest bacon I have ever had.

Right down the hallway from the main lobby is this incredible library/game area.

The outdoor area  looks so magical. at night.

The roof top area at night, I seriously want to have my next birthday celebration here.

and the roof top area is just as inviting during the day as well.

So, what are your favorite hidden gems in NYC?
