With a storied and rich history dating back to the 18th century, and one of the most sought-after locations in Manhattan, The High Line Hotel officially celebrates its opening this week, after having had its soft opening in May.
Originally an apple orchard and once owned by Clement Clarke Moore, the author of the famous yuletide poem ‘Twas the Night before Christmas, the property later became the living quarters of the General Theological Seminary. Today, the 60 room building overlooks the city’s much-loved High Line Park and its very own private garden oasis.
The property is a stunning feat of interior design and exterior landscaping, with many of its original Gothic features, such as stained glass windows and elaborate fireplace mantels preserved and highlighted in the design. Interior design firm Roman and Williams created the rich interior landscape, blending eclectic Americana with European style.
Each of the unique guest rooms has been furnished with rare, one-of-a-kind vintage pieces and unexpected artwork sourced from antique fairs and markets from New York State and around the US. This rich and timeless visual narrative extends throughout the common spaces and lush gardens.
Check-in is a breeze, all done wirelessly via tablets. Guests and locals alike will love the hotel’s cosy lobby, where a custom-built bar serves up Intelligentsia Coffee and delicious treats. The refectory next door has been transformed into a grand event space perfect for weddings, conferences and private events.
With the Chelsea galleries, Chelsea Market, High Line Park, the Meatpacking district and a plethora of great restaurants—The High Line Hotel is a perfect urban retreat in the city that never sleeps.
