Smith Hotels: A ‘New York Minute’ At The Arlo
The Arlo Hotel describes itself as ‘fit for today’s informed urban explorer’
The Arlo Hotel describes itself as ‘fit for today’s informed urban explorer’. With two locations in the heart of Manhattan – Arlo NoMad in Korea Town, and Arlo Soho – the description is spot on. Arlo encourages visitors to stay a while and experience New York like a local. So, set yourself up at either site, and use the plush, modern hotel as your home-base for a New York adventure, or your escape from the hustle of the Big Apple.
Here, our run-down on both locations: good luck trying to choose!
When you step into Arlo NoMad, you’ll get the feeling that you’ve been there before. And you probably have: in your dreams. Just north of Madison Square Park, and a short walk from the Empire State Building and Fifth Avenue shopping, Arlo NoMad is the definition of New York City style.
Make yourself at home in one of the many communal areas, eat ‘til you’re stuffed at the “Italianish” Massoni restaurant, or enjoy drinks with a view from 31st floor rooftop bar, The Heights. Choose from rooms like the Bunk Room, perfect for families or those travelling with friends, or go all out in the King Sky, featuring wrap-around, floor to ceiling views of the city.
Views of the Hudson River? Seasonally themed pop-up bars and parties? If any of these tickles your fancy, then you’ll want to visit Arlo Soho just for its rooftop. Hosting a range of fun activities from movie nights and group workouts, to live music and poker nights, the downtown hotel has your social life covered.
When you finally make your way down from the roof, you’ll find a central courtyard and interiors out of your wildest dreams. Natural light flows over charcoal couches, and greenery sits beside brick, glass and wood detail. Check-in, kick back and you’ll never want to leave!
