I heart New York. The city is unparalleled in its offerings, from Times Square to the Statue of Liberty and every neighborhood in between. Whether you take New York vacations for the Broadway shows, the promise of Wall Street, or the unlimited supply of culinary delights, you’ll find it all in the Big Apple — much of it at any hour. It’s true, the city never sleeps, but that doesn’t mean we don’t.
One of the newest New York hotels to rest your head is Fashion 26 – A Wyndham Hotel, located in Manhattan’s Garment District.
In addition to a 24-hour fitness center, free Wi-Fi and private driveway, this chic New York hotel makes a sweet first impression, welcoming each guest a delectable cupcake from Crumbs Bake Shop.
The cupcake isn’t the only thing making Fashion 26 rare among New York hotels — all of the dining options are Rare, as in the Rare Bar & Grille, the Rare Bar in the lobby and the fantastic rooftop bar, the Rare View (closed in the winter).
Among the amenities are the staples of New York hotels: an airport shuttle, dry cleaning, video rentals, and a continental breakfast. However, it also offers such luxuries as secretary services and doctor on call.
Location is everything when it comes to New York vacations. Fashion 26 is a short stroll from the Empire State Building, the Martha Stewart Studio, Penn Station, and Macy’s Herald Square. Taxis, subways, and bicycle rentals are just steps away too.
