great place to stay if you are in New York for a mini break. Whilst the rooms are small.. how big do they need to be when you should be out exploring the city. It's a great hotel but if any of you are looking to save some $$ then book it at SweetHotelDeals.us They usually have some pretty good deals on there!

booked this hotel by a bidding third party website, and when the name was published, I was a bit concerned. It's a great hotel but if any of you are looking to save some $$ then book it at SweetHotelDeals.us They usually have some pretty good deals on there!

Following an illness on a business trip, I ended up finding a room at the Hudson.

If I had wanted to have a drink and socialize, the atmosphere would have been perfect, but for a person not feeling well and needing to rest, this was nearly impossible.

First of all, the mattress felt like sleeping on a box spring. Hard, uncomfortable, with coils very noticeable.

Second, the tv service wasn't getting great reception, so everything I wanted to watch was out.

Third, the light near the bed was broken and could not be turned off.

Fourth, being on the 5th floor was as loud as being on the street. The location is fantastic for partying, but not for sleep. Sirens, car horns, hell, trucks parking, they all sounded 20 feet away.

I thought the decor was fantastic, but would prefer a decent mattress to fancy mirrors and lighting.

I stayed at the Hudson this past weekend when I was visiting New York from San Bernardino. I visit Nyc twice a year and this was by far my favorite hotel so far. It had a fantastic night scene for a hotel, and the decor was very posh. We sat at the outside terrace for drinks in the afternoon and then went into the main lounge area in the evening before going out for the night-- we loved everything from the lighting to decently sized rooms in comparison to many hotel rooms that I find to be very cramped unless you choose a suite. I will certainly try to book here on my next visit to the city. very enjoyable!

Pros: trendy, good scene, great drinks, indoor/outdoor

I was going to meet some co workers to celebrate. They did bottle service and told me to come join. I came alone at about 1 am. At first i thought I would never get in because of the super long line, but to my surprise it moved very quickly. Well for some people.. After about 5 minutes I stood on the line with 2 black couples, and 3 hispanics. We all stood online for an additional 15 minutes while they let everyone else in. Some people were pulled on to the vip line with no bottle service and there were others who did not even speak english!Then they told us we are only doing bottle service now. I called my friend she came down and they said we arent letting anyone else in that didnt get a bottle. I waited for another 5 minutes only for the promoters to let in about 20 more white people in and no mention of purchasing a bottle. I have been to many NY clubs in my day but never experienced such Rude, Ridiculous behavior. I love being a New Yorker because its a melting pot but clearly the promoters of Hudson Terrace feel otherwise. I wish i would have listened to the comments before mine. If you want to support this behavior be my guest I just hope that ur not discriminated against.

Since I live in the city, this review is not for the hotel itself. I came here for a social night out on a Friday night. Huge turnout and luckily I got here early! The venue plays good music and it is quite spacious but the drinks here are midtown prices.

Also, my friends got here a little before 12 and they waited in line for really long time and they wouldn't let them in unless they bought a bottle. Terrible way to do business. It is a shame.

I wanted to have a corporate party at the Hudson Sky Terrace and I am SO glad I booked it through Access Gotham's website instead of through the hotel. They made it 1000x easier and they even got free drink tickets for my co-workers which was great because the drinks aren't cheap! The party was a great success and the sunset was beautiful, but I know I would have had a lot of problems with the door/bottle service/etc if I hadn't booked through Access Gotham

This has to be some kind of joke being played on the traveling public of the world. This "hip" hotel is anything but. The street entrance is a mystery! Why was it not placed on West 57th ST?!? There's absolutely nothing "boutique" about The Hudson Hotel except for it being over priced and over hyped. If you must stay there ask for a high floor with an outside window and make sure that you have another hotel at which to stay after you decide to change hotels.

Pros: it is close to Lincoln Center

Cons: small dark and cramped rooms for so much $.

Our room was the same size as the bed but they still managed to position the TV so it was impossible to see from the bed. Where is the design?

That would have been ok but the service was non-existant starting with the bell boy upon arrival, to the check in, to the maintenance service (or lack there of) to management. Was put on hold 30 mins on the phone for waiting to ask for maintenance person who never showed up. The Manager's hospitality skills offered only that I should wait like everyone else.... nice.

Run away!!!

My first stay at the Hudson was in December. My boyfriend and I decided to spend a few nights in the city, do some Christmas shopping and see the lights. I am in New York all the time for work, but I had never stayed at a morgan's hotel so we decided to suck it up see what all the fuss is about.

I called their reservations department (hoping for an upgrade for booking directly with them) and they wanted some ungodly amount per night, but a co-worker of mine informed me Quikbook had rooms onsale. They had special that if I prepaid I got it for like $200/night, so we did end up staying there after all.

Although the room was on the smaller side, I loved the bar and the staff. The location could have been better, but it makes up for it with its cool designs. All in all, I think it was worth the money I spent, so I say if you can find a good deal on the rooms, definately try it out.

This hotel is a very fun spot on the upper west side. A good friend of mine has an office in the area and when ever I am in town I stay at the Hudson. You could hang out at the bar all night and it would be a good NYC evening.

Worst hotel I've stayed at in NY. Very loud, for one thing. There are hoards of non-guests crowding the lobby. Definitely a hook-up location. The rooms are nice at first glance, but in bad need of renovation. Also, the room is very dark with poor lighting.

I always say the hotel doesn't matter. You are not in NY to stay in the room. However, this hotel was actually somewhere I dreaded returning to at night.

Stayed here with my girlfriend for her birthday and we had an awesome good time. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Room was small but comfy/cozy and clean with a great view of the city from the 19th floor.
Food and drinks wayyyyy expensive so eat somewhere else.
Definitely will stay here again...

a little too swanky for my taste. Shraeger is a little overboard with the fluorescent yellow escalator and the weird mooseheads. Have a few cocktails and it's ok, otherwise, don't stay here.

Great place to send family and friends from out of town. I had a friend stay here and they loved it. The room was larger than normal and the staff was friendly and attentive. I would try the bar as soon as you have checked in and dig into the menu. A great place to stay during the weekends with a ton to do right in the neighborhood.

Pros - if getting into their bars is all thats important, then go ahead and stay there.

Cons - I thought the hotel in general (not including the lobby) was starting to look a bit tired. I was surprised to see just how shabby the hallways looked - carpet was icky, walls had paint chipped off everywhere. The door to my room had a crude hole drilled into the bottom of it so they could pass the bill on my final day into the room. I was also chapped that they're trying to charge for wireless internet. Whats next - charging for toilet paper?

If you like wasting money on small spaces this is the place for you. While this hotel is extremely hip and chic it is also a money pit. The rooms are extremely small in size and you can barely feel comfortable in the space. What makes this worse is the insulting $30 per person breakfast. It is ridiculous especially if you are only having one item.

The drinks are expensive, but the view and experience make it absolutely worthwhile. I took a client of mine there and he loved it. It's a gorgeous spot and I'm surprised more people don't know about it actually. My server Brianna was great- fast and friendly, she helped us figure out what we wanted to drink and encouraged us to stay for the sunset over the river which was great, I'm so glad we did. Did I mention the beautiful view?!

I can't believe all the review. I wish I had read this before even wasting my time at this bar. the so called "chief operations officer" was extremely rude to all guests in my party, and very unaccomodating. I would not wish this bar experience on my worst enemy. secret people - there are other bars in new york! many more with a welcoming atmosphere - perhaps when the scene fizzles out, and the economic impact of not having any customers left comes to the attention of the those in charge - the staff might change their attitude. BTW - why is citisearch showing 4 stars when there has not been 1 decent review with more than 1 star for this hell hole?

This place was over-hyped, and over-priced. I came here expecting a fun happy hour atmosphere, but was highly disappointed. although the scenary was nice, the service was poor, lines were long, and drinks expensive. unless you have money to burn and time on your hands, stay away!

Well, if you want to spend your money on teensy $16 dollar drinks that are served by waitresses that don't know how to run tabs, then this is the place for you. If you like bars without music that will slam doors in your face, run, don't walk to the Hudson Sky Terrace. They'll never see me again!

The staff is obnoxious! From the jersey club bouncer, blocking the elevators? to the "never going to be America's next top model", clueless, bubble heads attempting to serve drinks in their beach cover ups. My tiny $18 glass of Pinot Grigio, which is the only white wine they serve, was basically flung at me in a filthy plastic cup after a 15min wait.

...The bartender took the liberty of keeping my change for her efforts.

I am very disappointed with the treatment we received at the Hudson Sky Terrace, while celebrating my 30th birthday....There was no music at all, after it was promised that there would be music via an IPOD....
The staff was telling me that they were bringing speakers up, for an hour and a half, and then they never came, and the manager basically said their IPOD ran out of batteries???
Meanwhile, 50-60 people showed up and spent a lot of money at the bar, which was also ill-prepared for the crowd as there was a line of people waiting to be served, for the majority of the evening.
The most disappointing part of the evening took place toward closing time when some of my guests were not allowed back onto the terrace, because they were in the process of closing, and had the doors slammed in their face (even though some of them were still running a tab at the bar).
The bouncers were unfriendly, unnecessarily aggressive, and acted as though they were herding cattle, not people.
And the manager, who could not have been less accommodative if he tried, did not so much as utter a word of apology. Needless to say, my 30th birthday celebration was not what I expected, at all. The space is pretty, but there is no upside to coming all the way there, to an obscure area on the 15th floor, to be treated as though they are doing you a favor for allowing you to spend your hard-earned money on $18 drinks!

The Hudson Hotel is not marked very well, meaning that I was able to miss it while driving 15mph at night 3x around the block - which took about 45 minutes with a van full of screaming kids. All the glowing green lights were cool, and the kids thought we were in a spaceship.

BUT - the room was tiny - really tiny - and there were these faces on the lampshades that I think were supposed to be cool or hip or *something* and they just failed. It was very exciting to have curtains separating us from our bathroom, though.

It was overpriced and so was the bar - where we found out after ordering that we'd bought an *ahem* $300 bottle of grey goose - which we had to use to mix our own drinks!

Decorated with oversized wooden furniture and serving gourmet versions of comfort food, Hudson Cafeteria has an overall welcome and inviting feel. The menu has a little something for everyone and features such classics as macaroni and cheese, meatloaf, and burgers. It's one of my favorite places to eat in NYC!

Hello. Do not stay at this hotel. Only visit the bar at night; I repeat, do not stay here. The rooms are ridiculously TINY. The air-conditioner is right above the headboard of the bed. The staff is friendly, but not helpful. tHE CONCIERGE WAS TOTALLY OFF ON DIRECTIONS AND RESERVATIONS TWO DAYS IN A ROW! I took a shower at around 11pm, the shower flooded, I called and complained, and all the manager would offer me was the aid of a technician. For $350+ dollars a night, you'd expect a new room and a bell boy. If you are 5'10"+ and/or 215 lbs+ the size of the standard rooms will drive you CRAZY.
Suggestions if you dare to stay at the Hudson, upon check out, record the "Medallion Number" of your taxi, the hotel bell hops do not record it. (In case you leave something in the taxi by accident).

If you can get past the tacky yellow neon escalators that get you into the lobby, you will enter the best part of the Hudson - the common spaces. Lobby, restaurant, outside rooftop bar, library room, etc., are all lovely, though frequently crowded and ALWAYS have a very loud beat pumping. Kind of irritating. You exit the noisy city streets of New York and enter NOISE AND CONGESTION inside the Hudson. Then off to your room which should really be called a closet. Seriously small - not just small by a tourist's standards. It's the size of a walk-in closet. My room on the fifth floor looked out at a bunch of air conditioning vents or something and it was pretty darn ugly. I pulled my comforter down and there was a massive red stain on the comforter but City Search keeps editing the word I write which was bl**d. The bathroom was a postage stamp, the decor was modern and trendy rather than luxurious and contemporary and even the desk was like a child's desk. The television didn't work, the bathroom had a leaky sink. A ridiculous location. I would NEVER stay there again. Do yourself a favor and don't stay there either - it's not a sanctuary for travelers - it only adds stress to what should be a great experience in the big apple.

The television didn't work, the bathroom had a leaky sink. A ridiculous location. I would NEVER stay there again. Do yourself a favor and don't stay there either - it's not a sanctuary for travelers - it only adds stress to what should be a great experience in the big apple.

Pros: beautiful common spaces, nice midtown location

Cons: loud, tiny rooms, mediocre service, awful music in elevators and lobby

.

OK, the lobby bars are cool, and as long as you never have to go upstairs, you might think this place is great. Once you get upstairs, you have to walk through creepy dark halls (but not dark enough to hide the cheap and stained carpet and scuffed up walls). The rooms are depressingly, claustrophobiclly small, not at all chic and with no amenities (bathrobe? no! drawers? no!) The mattress was obviously the cheapest available and the sheets were scratchy. Incredibly uncomfortable. The thermostat did not work, the walls were paper thin. I ordered a room service breakfast which arrived 20 minutes late, so I was unable to eat it before leaving for a meeting. When I got back to the room at 3pm, they had still not made up my room! There are far better hotels in midtown for this price. I'll never be back.

Pros: Cool bar, central location

Cons: overpriced, tiny rooms, umcomfortable beds

. . . because you will need it in order to find the room. If you decide to stay here, I guarantee you will be writing one of these reviews after you stay here. The hotel is beautiful, but the rooms are minute. Additionally, the rooms are not luxurious in any way. The Hudson is a nice place to visit, but stay elsewhere overnight.

Pros: Beautiful common areas, Good for minimilists

Cons: Over-priced, Rooms are tiny have tiny TVS, no fridge, no bathrobes

.

They spent all of their money on the lobby and nightclubs. The rooms are stiflingly small, the hallways dark and creepy. At at $325 for a room smaller than my walk in closet at home, you can get a much nicer room elsewhere in the city. It's not the "bargain hotel" it's advertised to be.

Pros: ? The escalator? maybe? The clubs I suppose if that's your thing.

Cons: microscopic rooms.

.

Interior design well done and maybe enven soothing. Great dining outside at lunch. At night the hotel is a scene, trendy and a bit over the top with wannabe's. But worth a visit. The rooms however are small and defintetly not worth the price. However it is very convenient to midtown happenings/ Time Warner Center and the staff is knowledgable and there to see to your needs.

Beautiful people surround you at this party hearty hotel with style. The bar and the elevators always seem to be bumping loud music, but if you want to retreat to your tiny but q. eye 4 straight guy stylish room (that reminds of a ship's cabin), then security will make sure only hotel guests can enter the floors. The showers have the option of offering a silhouette to your co-roomie, and there is that fabulous rooftop with recliners that overlooks manhattan. The cafeteria is pricey but worth the gourmet food, and the staff is mostly friendly and very helpful. Your eye never gets tired of discovering new interior design magic (picture frame mirror, quirky chairs, chandeliers) and the location (58th/9th) is walking distance to everything manhattan (columbus circle, times square, lincoln center, central park). No regrets. Money well spent. Memorable hotel.

nice everywhere. Service is top notch. Not your fathers hotel. Hallways a little erie with dark gray walls, white doors and yellow lights onver the doors. Other wise, it's all awesomely cool.

The Hudson Hotel is a very cool place to a hang out or to stay. The decor is very modern and the lighting and angular architecture create a dramatic and striking ambiance. There is a bar that looks like a library with comfy couches and bookshelves lining the walls. The rates per night are not inexpensive at all, at least $400/night and I don't think they're very spacious. It's more about the look than the size!

I was not in the lucky, or fortunate position to go there with a girl, but I stayed there with my brother when he was visiting from Europe. We loved the hotel, the lobby, its atmosphere. The rooms are extremely small, possibly the smallest ones I have been in, but they were nice. It is really an ideal hotel for couples. Pay attention to the glass shower, which you can peak at inside while laying on your bed...
Also, the bar at the hotel is amazing!

it's true that the rooms are tiny but the hotel provides so many amazing common spaces (library, bar, park, roof garden, cafeteria) that make it a great place to spend your time. maybe not a first choice if you want to hole up in a somewhat claustrophobic room -- but first rate if you want to hang with other guests in a convivial environment.

I did a ton of back-and-forths over booking this hotel based on the reviews I read, but I was so glad I chose to stay here. Not only is it centrally located and a great bargain compared to the rest of NYC, I was so impressed with the friendly staff (especially given the stereo type of NY attitude...) I arrived at the hotel at 6 am, having taken a red-eye flight into the City, and I asked to stow my bags until check-in time. Without my asking, they offered to let me check into my room so, basically they gave me a full day free. I was so amazed. I had expected to be out in the snow drinking coffee until 3 pm. I love this hotel and would stay there again in an instant! The rooms are small, but I found it cozy due to the great decor.

I had a great time staying at The Hudson... YES ROOMS ARE SMALL. But this is expected in NYC esp cuz of the reasonable rates Hudson offers compared to the other Ian S. hotels. I loved the dark wood floors & white linens in the room... very sexy look. I also enjoyed the patio/lounge area in the afternoon... not crazy about the bar scene, seemed kinda 80's to me and felt the guys were using the lighted floors to look up my skirt. WEIRD. Everyone was very friendly and there was even free internet eccess on every floor for those business travelers. Had such a fun time I'm going back again in the Spring time!

Pros: sexy, drinks on patio, chill library

Cons: rooms r tiny, dated bar

In typical Ian Schrager fashion, the Hudson hotel is fun, upbeat and a decorating marvel. The entrance to the hotel is not marked, but look for the sconces with fire shooting out of them & you've found the place. Ride the limegreen elevator to the top and you are in the lobby. The hotel has a hip bar (the Hudson Bar) and a restaurant (Hudson Cafeteria). A stay at the hotel gets you a VIP pass for both, so no waiting behind the velvet rope.

The rooms are not huge, but they are well appointed and comfortable - no smaller than your typical NYC hotel.

The location is great, on W. 58th Street close to Central Park, the theater district, and a short walk to Rockefeller Center.

At $189 per night, we had no regrets.

PROS: Hip, sceney, good location, good price
CONS: You'll be surrounded by beautiful people - prepare to be humbled!

Everyone knows Ian Schrager's hotels are upscale yet loads of fun. It's quite pricey to stay at the hotel. The room is small yet sleek and modern - the bed is uncomfortable and they only provide you with a shampoo and lotion (but it's from Aveda). The food is pretty good (esp. mac & cheese and shrimp pasta!). The REAL cool part of staying at this hotel is the special, private key guests have for the upstairs terrace. One can find relaxation on the rooftop while sunbathing and ordering room service. VERY COOL!

PROS: Decor
CONS: House Keeping is a VERY slow

This hotel is very modern. It attracts a mostly young crowd. I have not stayed here, but had a drink in their library bar. I higly recommend that you check it out! Also, they have a main bar/ lounge area that was pumping out the 80's tunes when I was there. The decor is whimsical: trees come out of the ceilng and some of the furniture is made out of logs. It's a very hip and fun place. Rumor has it that a lot of celebrities hang there too.

The smallest hotel room I've ever stayed in, outside Japanese sleeping tubes. Staff were a little "too cool for school" in attitude.

As someone who is noise sensitive, I enjoyed my stay at the Hudson. Yes, the room is small, but it's cute. The hallways are a bit dim. The dim lights are above the doors to the rooms. I have seen even more dimmer lights though. The bedroom was cute with a backlight headboard and two painted lightboxes on each side of the bed. I stayed on the 15th Floor. The view of the Hudson River from the 15th Floor outdoor deck was nice. It's a 22/23 floor building. Yes, there was a short wait at the front desk but the staff was helpful and two of the women at night were rather sweet when it came to odd questions I had. It was weird being called sir by the man who held by bags in storage and brought them back out for me. He was polite.

The lobby, bar and grounds are gorgeous! The staff is extremely accomodating and the bell men are dolls. The rooms are way too small but it is the norm for most NY boutique hotels. The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. The bars are ridiculous. Over priced and extremely snobby.

I really enjoyed my stay here. The grounds are beautiful, and our room was really nice. It wasn't too small as many boutique hotel rooms are, and the bathroom was big enough as well. If you stay in the hotel you get immediate access to the velvet rope club there, but I actually prefered the one outdoors and the library bar, which are more low key. The staff were very helpful and friendly, though I felt I knew more about the museum scene and upcoming exhibits than the concierge, but that was the only downside.

After viewing the unassuming, minimalist facade of this Ian Schrager property, it's hard to believe what lies inside. Bathed in soft yellow light, Philippe Starck's design includes a glass-enclosed escalator that whisks visitors up to the…
