Nestled in the heart of Chelseas buzzing gallery district - The High Line Hotel as designed by Roman and Williams is a completely unique and inspiring respite from the harried pace of downtown Manhattan. Just off 10th Avenue the gated Parisian-style courtyard complete with lush gardens demarcated by gas lamps beckons passer-bys to step into a different era. Step inside and find yourself in a building that beckons both timeless yet timely design. The Highline Hotel much like its groundbreaking elevated namesake 50 yards to the west is not a simple homage to the past but rather builds on the epic distinct American history guiding it directly into the heart of the contemporary city.
The Hotels large guest rooms and lobby draw inspiration from the estates original roots as a quiet apple orchard turned cloistered seminary. Gothic moldings and accent details including fireplaces have been maintained though history does not hamper the hotels modern aspirations. Each room has been furnished with hand-selected one-of-a-kind pieces sourced from antique fairs - vintage markets and found objects from New York State and around the US. The common space including a custom built specialty coffee bar and courtyard continues the narrative and carefully curated finds an effortlessy eclectic mix of furnishings. As one of the first hotels to institute a deskless-paperless-iPad tablet check-in the hotel will have a technological spine beneath the surface including complimentary super-fast wifi and complimentary phone calls to anywhere in the world. Guests of The High Line Hotel will feel like they are in another time - a sanctuary from the world - while never being more connected.
