I once had a smaller room in Paris. The hotel was full but the landylady graciously put a mattress in a closet so I had a place to sleep.
the Archer is brand new and wonderfully designed. if I ever build a new house, I want a bathroom like the one in my room at the Archer.
i cannot say enough complimentary things about the staff and their impeccable service. none better at any price. the housekeeping folks were friendly, efficient and unobtrusive. the ice was a perfect 32degrees F.
We had a front facing room on a high floor and were serenaded by endless garbage truck noises on the weeknights, but-nothing on The weekend. Perhaps a back room would be better.
How small was the room? well the door did not hit the bed when you first go in, but if you take one more step, you are there. The funniest was when I opened the ironing board and had to kneel no the bed to iron my shirt. no I am not joking.
All in all we had a great time. the hotel is sparkling new and clean. the restaurant, Fabrik, is world class and the chairs out front are a nice treat.
The roof bar is far more egalitarian than the one next door at the Refinery. two drinks and a tip were $45, but the view of the Empire State building took away the sting.
The Nespresso coffee machine was brilliant, but could use real cream, not that fake stuff.
We had a great time and really loved the place, but will surely pay up for one of their few larger rooms( a whopping 350 ft vs 175) .
the neighborhood is in the garment district, on one of the buttons and zipper streets, and. A nice change and a surprisingly handy location.
if you are not claustrophobic, it's all good.
