This newly built, full-service hotel has approximately 100 rooms and is centrally located on the corner of Lexington Avenue and East 45th Street, across from Grand Central Terminal. The hotel offers uniquely designed guestrooms and meeting spaces, an award winning on-site restaurant, and a host of complimentary amenities to enhance the guest experience.
Hotel Boutique is specifically designed to cater to the needs of the frequent business traveler, millennial traveler, or the tourist desiring to be in the heart of Midtown. High-tech accommodations at Hotel Boutique are designed with modern, clean lines and warm colors and offer premium bedding. Many rooms feature a custom designed dining/living/work space coined the in-room “activity center.” Created per traveler feedback, this section of the room offers wrap-around sectional seating, a desk chair, and swiveling table with integrated power and cabling so that guests can relax, work and dine, while watching television or enjoying the outdoor view. Many rooms offer floor-to-ceiling outer glass with views south to the Chrysler Building, east to Grand Central’s historic architecture, or north to the east side’s iconic skyline.
Complimentary services at Hotel Boutique are specially chosen to meet the needs of the modern traveler. In addition to a fitness room, on property, guests have the option to have exercise equipment such as yoga gear, portable bike or treadmill delivered to the room.
