Arlo Hotel by Avroko, New York

January 19th, 2017 by retail design blog

Only a month after launching its first property in New York City’s Hudson Square neighbourhood last year, newly established micro hospitality chain Arlo Hotels launched a second property a few blocks North in the Nomad area. Arlo Nomad, as the property is called, is slightly smaller in size, and represents another collaboration with local design Studio Avroko.

Slightly smaller in size, the hotel features 250 designed rooms in six different categories, but similarly designed in a Mid-Century Modern aesthetic. Although slightly vary in size, these pads all share a clever configuration, beautiful design, and last but not least, a nifty range of amenities that savvy urban travelleres can’t do without, including free wifi, a 42-inch led television, and a glass-enclosed rain shower.

The most coveted one arguably is the 150 sq.ft. [14 sqm.] queen room – terrace which comes with an equally sized private terrace with interesting city views. It’s not just the rooms of Arlo Nomad that pull this specific travel demographic to its doorstep, but also its stylish communal spaces and facilities.

First and foremost, there’s Massoni, an informal Italian-inspired restaurant helmed by checf Dale Talde along with partners David Massoni and John Bush – the successful team behind successful local establishments talde, thistle hill tavern, and pork slope. Another inviting space on the premises is barlo, a prime neighbourhood spot where to unwind and mingle over a killer cocktails and small bites served by Massoni.

Situated one floor up is the Library, a lofty salon-like room that’s very suitable as a co-working space during the day, and where to wind down in style in the evening. Taking matters to a new level, and quite literally so, is rooftop cocktail bar the Heights. Perched on the 31st floor, it provides a spacious, relaxed setting with sweeping views of Manhattan’s iconic skyline.

Last but certainly not least, there’s Bodega, a well-stocked 24-hour pantry with a variety of snacks and bites, including a daily selection of tasty pizza and sandwiches from chef talde, and quality coffee that takes care of almost any craving that suddenly surfaces. Honestly, what’s not to like about this place?
