For anyone tired out by the unrelenting tackiness of the neon-lit Times Square, there’s an alternative, this one in basic black. The Night Hotel, a new addition on West 45th between Sixth and Seventh, is, adjusting for the neighborhood, the model of fashionable composure, from the monochrome checks of the lobby floor to the black-and-white Gothic chic of the perversely cozy bedrooms.
And this being Times Square, of course, it’s ever so slightly over the top. This isn’t monochrome-as-minimalism, in a downtown style, but more a black velvet fantasy, a romantic evocation of a darker, more glamorous Gotham. It’s a smallish hotel, less than a hundred rooms, and like most New York hotel rooms, they’re not overly large. They are, however, well-appointed, with plasma TVs, iPod stereo systems, and generous creature comforts, including 400-thread-count Frette sheets and customized Bespoke bath products, which probably matter more to the Night’s amorous clientele than, say, full-sized work desks — though the latter, one imagines, might find themselves drafted into improvised service too.
Red Moon, the hotel’s restaurant, serves Japanese-Vietnamese fusion in an attractive low-lit dining room — though, this being Manhattan, there’s no shortage of dining options outside the hotel’s walls. Just don’t be surprised if you find all that colored light a little hard to take, after a night or two at the Night.
