Get Away: The Mondrian Park Avenue
The Manhattan hotel near Madison Square Garden has the feel of a swanky apartment building.
Located in New York City’s NoMad neighborhood, just blocks from the Empire State Building and Madison Square Garden, Mondrian Park Avenue is a 20-story hotel with the swanky feel of a Manhattan apartment. Opened last November, the hotel has 189 rooms and suites, each with plush linens, oversize rain showers, an LCD smart TV, leather wing chairs and a minibar stocked with locally curated treats and create-your-own cocktail kits. Many rooms offer “floating” writing desks that can swing alongside a chair or bed, and some rooms on the top five floors come with a private balcony.
Cleo, the hotel’s restaurant, serves Mediterranean fare, including Moroccan lamb, grilled Spanish octopus and kebabs. An indoor-outdoor lounge and terrace named 15 Stories is a musical oasis by night and a relaxing space for late afternoon light bites and sunset views. Bring your pup and book the Bark Avenue package, complete with a dog bed and a “Bark Box” that includes all-natural treats and a toy (a recent Chinese-themed box contained a dumpling-shaped toy). Dog walking is available upon request.
