It may not be trendy, but the Metro is that rare thing: a solid, good-value hotel that is extremely well maintained. Every two years, the owners start renovating the rooms, floor by floor, starting at the top; by the time they’re finished it’s almost time to start again. So even "old" rooms are virtually new. The stylishly contemporary quarters feature marble-topped furniture and beige leather-effect headboards; premier rooms have luxurious rain showers. Unusually for New York, the hotel offers 18 family rooms, consisting of two adjoining bedrooms (one with two beds and a table) and a door that closes. Also rare, a generous continental breakfast buffet is offered in the guests’ lounge (or take it to the homey adjoining library), outfitted with several large TVs. The rooftop bar (open Apr–Oct) has Empire State Building views. Rooms: 181.
