The focus is mainly on nightlife (and daytime lounging) at this Philippe Starck–designed hotel, which has four bars and a fifth opening in fall 2013. Hudson Common, the hotel’s new burgers-and-beer-focused gastropub, has the feel of a stylish college cafeteria with its high ceilings, communal tables, self-service window and nightly DJ sets. Connected to the eatery is the ivy-covered outdoor space known as Tequila Park in the summer (featuring a taco stand and more than 40 kinds of tequila) and Hudson Lodge in the winter, when it’s tented and heated. While the public areas are beyond spacious, the standard rooms are a tiny 150 square feet. The small yet sleek all-white bathrooms are stocked with C.O. Bigelow products, and Wi-Fi is free throughout the property. If you’re planning to spend as little time as possible in your room, you’ll be happiest if you visit in the warmer months. The Hudson’s most attractive asset, the 15th-floor Skylight Terrace, complete with bar and shaded hammock, is prime for sunbathing while gazing at the Hudson River panorama. Rooms: 866.
