The Hudson's location, near Columbus Circle, is easy walking distance to Lincoln Centre, Central Park and the Theatre District. The hotel is minutes from fine dining, great shopping, entertainment, and nightlife. Close to Central Park and the theatre district, Hudson is a brilliant reflection of the boldness and diversity of the city - the quintessential New York hotel. Philippe Starck's design includes chartreuse-lit escalators that sweep guests to a 40-foot high ivy-covered lobby, an enormous indoor/outdoor Private Park and a ceiling fresco by world-famous painter Francesco Clemente. Hudson is the next generation of Cheap Chic - stylish, democratic, affordable, young at heart and utterly cool.
