We've put together a slideshow of the newest addition to NYC's hostelry scene, chock-full of rad design elements from Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz, the dude behind their L.A. location and the pads of rock-stars like Lenny Kravitz and Diddy. The trippy interiors come courtesy of Jean Coucteau’s 1946 romantic French fantasy film La Belle et la Bête, the primary inspiration for Noriega-Ortiz's vision. The views are as epic as the powder-blue lobby—we're especially into showering with a picture window overlooking the skyline. Oh yeah, all rooms come with an iPad with a virtual concierge program, Malin +Goetz amenities, and minibar stocked with retro candy, Pabst Blue Ribbon beer, and, but of course, an intimacy kit. So skip kayak.com—a mini-break's a subway ride away.
