New York’s High Line Hotel

For the past four years, New York’s High Line has served as one of the most scenic and tourist friendly outdoor spaces in the entire city. Though the elevated park runs right by the always-popular Standard Hotel, it now has a luxury lodging with its own namesake—The High Line Hotel.

One of the newest additions to New York’s ever increasing array of high end accommodations, the High Line Hotel is located at 20th Street and Tenth Avenue and is housed in a renovated portion of the General Theological Seminary. The Seminary itself was built in 1895 and originally designed by architect Charles C. Haight and the original red brick façade has been maintained throughout. The cloistered nature of the building and the grounds itself provide the hotel with an intrinsic sense of sanctuary among the bustling High Line park and Chelsea gallery district.

The interior was designed by Architectural Digest AD100 designers Roman and Williams with an aesthetic that combines both eclectic Americana and upscale European styles. Standard rooms range between 250 and 350 square feet and feature luxury queen beds, vast bathrooms, complimentary WiFi and views that overlook the High Line Park or the private seminary garden and courtyard.

The hotel had it’s soft open in May, but eventually the courtyard space will become a bar and dining area where guests and native New Yorkers alike can take refuge among the private gardens and admire the original Gothic architecture and stained glass windows; just some of the historical design items that set the High Line Hotel apart from the other accommodations in the area. However, the lobby already features a custom-built bar and seating area that serves as Intelligentsia Coffee’s first East Coast output.

Whether you’ve been to New York before, or are planning on visiting for the first time, try the High Line Hotel and see what the city is like when you’re in the middle of the action, but feel a peace and tranquility that is out of line with the “classic” New York experience.
