Yes, hotels near Penn Station are stuck in an area that seems to be the part of New York City that the glamor stick forgot to hit. It retains the dingy and decrepit patina from the 1980s—but it’s for this reason that many die-hard New Yorkers still love the area. And it is easy to hop on public transportation to nearly anywhere in the city, and you’re right next door to the limelight of Times Square and the best restaurants near Penn Station. And it's within walking distance to excellent ‘hoods like Hell’s Kitchen, NoMad and Chelsea, some of New York’s top destinations.

Hotel Eventi

Ultra-posh and modern is the name of the game at this hotel meets art museum. Hotel Eventi’s signature touch is its omnipresent display of art installations, like paintings and sculptures—which pair nicely with the hotel’s nightly complimentary wine tastings. Rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows that bathe the space in white. Tuck into Portuguese fare from Michelin-starred chef George Mendes, or head to The Vine restaurant for breakfast.

TRYP by Wyndham Times Square South

The surroundings aren’t much to write home about, but welcome to the area surrounding Penn Station! Still, the first U.S. outpost of Wyndham’s Trip brand harkens back to the company’s Spanish origins with a stellar tapas restaurant and a Mediterranean vibe. Large rooms have reclaimed wood floors and cool wallpaper, as well as a different type of room for every traveler: Think bunk beds, 3-D TVs and exercise equipment.

Hôtel Americano

The first American outpost of Mexican hotel group Grupo Habita made quite a splash when it opened on the West Side. This uber-sexy 14-floor tower packs its room with a great minibar, personal iPads and hanging fireplaces. During summer months, strip down and head up to the rooftop pool. Cool touch: In the winter, the pool actually becomes a hot tub. The Americano serves un-eponymous French food, but it’s those kind of playful touches that makes this hotel just so damn cool.

Wyndham New Yorker Hotel

Any New Yorker knows The New Yorker Hotel (even if they don’t know exactly what it is they are looking at). The iconic art deco building is a lovable part of the Midtown skyline and has hosted the likes of JFK, Muhammad Ali and Jennifer Hudson. Rooms reflect the art history roots with neutral tones, tufted headboards and classic furniture, but all rooms also have flat-screen TVs, free HBO and workspaces. Indulge in a little old-school New York with the Tick Tock Diner, a 24-hour NYC institution. Then elevate things in the evenings at Trattoria Bianca, for Italian cuisine.

Riff Hotel Chelsea

This hidden gem on the West Side is putting out a serious retro rocker vibe. Rooms are decked out in black-and-white with pops of color like classic guitars or old suitcases.

Then there are the hostel-style accommodations (but way, way nicer) with shared bathrooms. All rooms have free Wi-Fi and are inspired by the ’80s. Case in point: complimentary retro Atari and board game rentals. Note: There is no elevator. The building is in a refurbished four-story walk-up, but that’s great for those who are really craving a real NYC experience!
