LUMA Hotel, New York, USA
Sandwiched between two pre-war buildings, this modern hotel that opened in 2017 stands out with its glass façade. Located in mid-Manhattan near Times Square, it has a great location near two subway stations offering 17 train lines as well as a host of top New York sights. It features hi-tech rooms with premium features like Nespresso machines that you'd normally expect in a higher-grade hotel. Wellness features like workouts and beauty services are provided in-room, and there's free and discounted passes to nearby local gyms. With a buzzing restaurant and bar, it's also a great place to meet and socialise.
Exploring the city is made so easy with there being no less than 17 subway lines at Bryant Park and Times Square, both close by.
It's a short walk down 6th Avenue to Macy's and the Empire State Building. The opposite direction will take you to Top of the Rock and the Museum of Modern Art.
By plane: flights from London, Manchester or Edinburgh to New York take 7 hours. It's a 30-minute drive from JFK airport. Parking costs $80 per day. skyscanner.net
Style & Character
The hotel suits couples, families and solo travellers as well as those on business, wanting a bright, uplifting hotel stay in a central location but at reasonable rates for an upper-middle range boutique hotel. We loved the clever use of light and colour, with bold, bright, atmospheric colour-changing lighting.
Service & Facilities
The daily complimentary glass of Sangria is a nice touch.
