Row NYC Making you feel brand new featured

Running a hotel in a city that never sleeps might sound like a bad idea. But firstly, it’s only a catchphrase people. And secondly, there’s a new breed of hotels that are harnassing rather than fighting the raw energy of the city – without sacrificing even one of your forty winks.

The two screening rooms, meanwhile, have been redone to a classic remit, with polished wood-block floors and walls split half-and-half between mahogany panelling and patterned wallpaper adorned with white stone reliefs.

Classic is the buzzword when it comes to the program too. You won’t find new, big budget and CGI-laden blockbusters here, only the very best from bygone eras of filmmaking. Keep your eyes peeled, too, for the regular discussion meets and Q&A sessions with directors.
