The room has a very residential feel which includes full size SMEG refrigerators (think That 70's Show) stocked with goods from local NYC names like Brooklyn Brewery.
The best part of the minibar is that it is not so mini. The fridge I saw had a complete six pack of beer from Brooklyn Brewery. The room was also equipped with a turntable and acoustic guitar (strange but cool.)
From what I saw room types will include everything from smaller bunk bed rooms up to 2 bedroom suites. I toured a suite still in demo phase and it was very large. I think this hotel will offer a great option for people looking to stay in a hip hotel in a fantastic central location in NYC at all price points.
The hotel will have a new restaurant by the same people behind NYC's "Spotted Pig" as well as the first NYC coffee shop by Stumptown Coffee Roasters from Portland. This hotel should be a welcome edition to an area of NYC that can greatly benefit from some hipness.
