Hotel description

6 Columbus is an affordable boutique hotel in New York City, conveniently located across the street from Central Park on Columbus Circle (Midtown, West Side).

The long-awaited Upper West Side sequel to Soho’s successful 60 Thompson is here at last. Like its sister, 6 Columbus is named for its address, and it’s a prestigious one, right on Columbus Circle, next to the Time Warner Center retail-and-dining development and at the southwest corner of Central Park.

Designer Steven Sclaroff’s inspiration was Sixties modernism, but beyond some touches of fur and leather in the lobby, any Austin Powers–esque kitsch is studiously avoided. The 6 Columbus Hotel is stylish, in a somewhat serious vein, never stuffy, but always impeccably composed. The rooms aren’t huge — this is still New York, after all — but they’re well-equipped with all the luxe-boutique must-haves (flat-screen TV, iPod docking stereo) and some thoughtful extras as well (Dean & DeLuca snacks in the minibar, Kiehl's toiletries in the bathrooms).

Service is quite a bit friendlier than you might expect from such a fine-looking hotel, and while the amenities aren’t quite on the luxury-hotel level, neither are the rates. Anyway the absolute necessities are accounted for: the Blue Ribbon is a sushi restaurant and a swanky wood-paneled cocktail bar, and a second rooftop bar and lounge, complete with park views, is set to open soon.
