But that's not to say the hotel isn't a deeply historical place. Built in 1900, the building has long attracted bold-faced names: Jack Kerouac wrote two novellas while living here. Hotelier Sean MacPherson (known for his stylish makeovers of Manhattan hotspots like the Maritime Hotel and the Jane) completely revamped the space—which most recently served as a college dormitory—into a succession of superchic rooms redolent of Postwar Paris. The wood-paneled lobby is a fitting introduction to the hotel's 107 handsome guest quarters, which are spread over nine intimate floors.
