RUMOUR has it... NYC has new cool addresses

The hot new additions to the city that never sleeps...
HOTEL HUGO - Soho
This stylish 20-storey hotel with its Art Deco interiors is a good excuse to explore this surprisingly quiet part of Manhattan. The rooms are well-laid out, with those on the upper floors with views across the Hudson to Hoboken. The two rooftop bars have staggering 360-degree views. 
BACCARAT HOTEL - Midtown Manhattan

This glittery new addition to the New York skyline is fit for a princess! With custom-made jacquard bedding and pleasing touches such as Fauchon almond biscuits, chocolates and cheddar mini-crepes in the mini-bar, the rooms are cosseting and calming spaces. Everything - temperature, room service orders, TV, curtains - is controlled from a handy phone-size tablet. And once the princess takes off her crystal slippers for the night, she can head down to the sparkling Spa de la Mer.

THE EDITION - Madison Square Park

The recently converted into a 273-room hotel, Madison Life Clock Tower, is polished, chic and tasteful throughout. All rooms have blond-wood floors, striking ebonised headboards, snow-white sofas and wheat-coloured resin bathrooms. The Clock Tower restaurant on the second floor is busy, clubby and panelled with original architectural details. The menu, by London's Jason Atherton (of Pollen Street Social) is nothing short of phenomenal with exquisite interpretations of American classics.

BORO HOTEL - Long Island

If you think Long Island City sounds like it is a long way away from anything, you would be right and a little wrong. This new industrial-chic hotel in the magnificently named Dutch Kills neighbourhood of Queens is just two subway stops from 57th street. Once past the post-apocalyptic industrial exterior, the overall look is much warmer, gritty Berlin meets cool Mexico City. The bedrooms are roomy with high ceilings and surprisingly big bathrooms.

1 HOTEL CENTRAL PARK - Central Park

This handsome hotel is eco all over with eco-tastic touches such as stylish reclaimed wood furniture, en egg timer in the showers to tell you when the five minutes is up, chalkboards on the nightstands in place of notepads, recycled cardboard hangers in the wardrobe, the list goes on. The just-opened restaurant Jams, marks the revival of the local farm-to-table superstar chef Jonathan Waxman. The dishes on the menu are made of locally grown or sustainably raised organic ingredients.
