Mansfield Hotel lives up to extreme expectations. The Mansfield is part of the Boutique Hotels group, which has four other properties in the city. Offering a portal to New York’s bygone era, the hotel serves as a prime example of its time with its 126-room accommodations. Without doubt, the Mansfield is one of the loveliest hotels in the city, with its recessed floor spotlighting, copper-domed salon, clubby library, and nightly jazz welcoming guests from behind the front desk. Fashionistas love the minimalist décor; others may find it sparse and somber. There’s a charming, slightly quirky feel about the place, an echo perhaps of its turn of the century role as a pad for New York’s most eligible bachelors. This small and stylish hotel - popular with the fashion industry - offers unique complimentary treats. With the European breakfast and all-day cappuccino, a great deal at. The espresso and cappuccino flow freely all day, and some rooms have sound therapy machines so you can listen to the ocean, a tropical forest or a running stream. Breakfast is included, and though there’s no restaurant, the M Bar serves caviar and a light menu under a newly uncovered domed skylight. This historic landmark features a supreme location along 44th Street, found between the famous Fifth and Sixth Avenues. Shopping options, fine restaurants, and Broadway theaters are all found within minutes. Originally built in 1903, the renovated Midtown Landmark features an intimate club room, hopping bar, and furnishing in dark woods. Although the rooms have the distinctive flavor of an earlier era, modern conveniences have not been forgotten. Rooms are surprisingly modern. In fact, cutting edge technology can be found next to the bed, where room settings can be arranged and flat panel TV can be turned on without ever having to get up. All rooms have mini-bars and wireless internet access. Aveda amenities and iPod docks can be found beside pillow-top mattresses. Baths have European fixtures and individual heaters and some have Jacuzzi tubs. However, some rooms have noticeable improvements. Guests enjoy a fully stocked mini bar and plush microfiber robes in every room. If the choice from the Chambre Petite to The Two Bedroom Apartment won’t do, take a tour of the massive Renwick Duplex Penthouse, which has everything Manhattan’s elite desires. Once done ogling at the choice of rooms, head to Mansfield’s Function offerings. A Beaux Arts library rival’s to capture the attention from the London phone booth room, classic table game, or roaring fireplace. The quaint setting of the Club Room is perfect for hosting events or business negotiations. The Italian-designed Technogym is graced by plenty of weights, elliptical trainers, and state-of-the-art treadmills. A soothing ambience can be expected with the illusion of being outdoors. The free spaces are inviting for private yoga practice, warming, or cooling down. The Mansfield hotel is not just a place for New York’s most eligible bachelors - it’s now the place to be for business travelers, leisure enthusiasts, couples, and families who value luxury at its finest.
