Archer Hotel is in a brick, steel, and glass 22-storey building in the Garment District and features both a restaurant and rooftop bar. With exposed brick and butcher-block flooring, the hotel is evocative of the industrial past of the neighbourhood. Furniture was custom-designed and the art hand-picked.
Archer Hotel have 180 guest rooms in four different designs, some of them with amazing views of the Empire State Building, book the Empire View Suite room! All rooms include dual-function furniture such as platform beds with drawers beneath, and sconces that double as reading lights, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Bathrooms have walk-in dual-head showers and gorgeous black-and-white subway tiled bathrooms with luxurious walk-in showers.
Also, not every hotel can boast all original artwork, but at Archer, little touches of creativity brought about by Deborah Goodman Davis, a Manhattan-based art adviser, adds an ingenious characteristic. All the paintings and photographs on the lobby walls and in the rooms are done by local artists, including the intriguing photo display by Martin Klimas in the parlor of colorful paint moving to different iconic songs, and the dress sculpture by Thea Lanzisero, which pays respect to the hotel’s Garment District history. A unique thing the designers did when planning Archer was to blend a comfortable refinement into the space. You will feel it whether you’re lounging on the canary-yellow couch or tipping back a few cocktails at the bar.
In the summer you can enjoy a drink at the rooftop bar, Spyglass, perched on the 22nd floor with views of the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building. You can also unwind after your day with an aperitif at the Bugatti Bar, complete with seasonal outdoor patio.
