Archer Hotel, New York

29 June 2015

In a city that’s constantly evolving, Manhattan’s Garment District is suddenly in vogue. Archer Hotel, located amongst Midtown’s trimming stores and bead shops, opened in May 2014 to become one of the area’s trendiest addresses. The floor-to-ceiling windows in the Archer King Empire View rooms are so-named because they provide stunning views of the Empire State Building, also seen front and centre from the airy terrace of the rather popular Spyglass Rooftop Bar on the 22nd level. Open from afternoon until late, it’s a local spot people gravitate towards.

Same goes for the David Burke Group’s ground-level Fabrick restaurant and Bugatti Bar, where New Yorkers and hotel guests gather over drinks and modern American cuisine. In warm weather, retractable doors open to the adjoining street side patio. The nearby lobby displays part of the house art collection with modern pieces like the colourful, diaphanous abstraction by Brooklyn-based Artie Vierkant, a piece that adds to Archer’s delivery of a quintessential New York experience.
