Updated from hotelier Ian Schrager’s reboot in the 1990s, the Royalton still embodies the nightclub in a hotel concept. The extra-long lobby is dark woods, textured walls and comfortable perches. There are nooks and alcoves with banquettes, tufted couches and ottomans lining the walls. A floor-to-ceiling bronze fireplace is etched and carved in undulating lines. Rope netting softens the corners of the hallways. Orb-shaped light fixtures dangle like floating bubbles from the ceiling. Add in the dark grays and browns of the furnishings and the entire effect is akin to being submerged in the deepest depths of the sea.
Guest rooms are lighter in pale grays and royal blues. Custom-made white linens top dark wood platform beds. Less is more seems to be the aesthetic for room design here.
The higher floors have some standout perks, including round tubs surrounded by reflective tile walls and wood-burning fireplaces. Guests also receive a loaner iPad and free Wi-Fi, a thoughtful touch.
Conservative guests and those with small children might find the lobby too dark and unusual for their tastes. But for those who enjoy being in a see-and-be-seen spot, this will fit the bill.
