About
Description
The striking Beaux-Arts structure that is HGU New York has welcomed countless guests since 1905. Ornate plaster ceilings tell of legendary parties and infamous patrons of old, while 89 rooms and suites ...More offer luxury and modern convenience. Restful sleep is paired perfectly with an intoxicating art collection throughout the rooms, corridors, and living spaces; each corner a destination of possible repose or reverie. Derived from the style coveted by the leisure and business set, HGU New York awakens all senses and consistently impresses. This is not Midtown; this is NoMad. Less

There is a hairdryer, works better than most hotel hair dryers. I have long hair myself and this one was a 2-speed dryer.
