This used to be my 2nd favorite hotel in New York, next to the Bryant Park Hotel. Yes, there are more dramatic and beautiful hotels, but coming to the Mercer made me feel like I was coming home. Nothing beats the Bryant Park Hotel in that respect, but the Mercer used to come close.
It's been a year or so, but most of the staff still knows me and welcomed me with open arms. I had two colleagues with me, one of them who was African. I needed to go to the bathroom and when I returned, I was asked "are you and colleagues staying at the hotel?" I responded "no", but I reminded them that I worked for Bacardi and that we always stay here when possible. I have already sent out an email to my colleagues, but also to my fellow alumni at Harvard and Rice Universities.
There are way more hip hotels in NYC than the Mercer and more importantly, those that don't discriminate!
