NYC’s newest citizen
The chic Europe-based hotel chain that's now in the US
A few things we like about the US’ first-ever, Amsterdam-based citizenM hotel in NYC: free Wi-Fi in all 230 rooms; XL king-size beds; high-pressure rain showers; custom MoodPads that control the lighting, temperature, blinds and wake-up alarm themes. (Want to be woken up by the sound thundering elephants? Done.) Located just off the corner of Broadway and 50th Street in the Theatre District, this outpost of “affordable luxury” includes canteenM, a grab-and-go kitchen that’s open 24/7 for breakfast (US$16) and the like, a rooftop Cloud Bar and a lobby that’s more like a big living room with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. There’s also a “basketball-court inspired gym ” and outdoor yoga terrace. Self check-in is said to take 60 seconds; check out 30 secconds. Reservations are by net only. Rooms from US$199. citizenm.com/newyorktimessquare.
