Revamped by Gachot Studios, the Smyth delivers the same combo of luxury and laid-back hipness that you’ll find at sister Thompson hotels Gild Hall and the Beekman. Modernist furniture, rugs and book-lined shelves give the lobby a snug, chic, Scandinavian vibe, while the sound-proofed rooms are a soothing combo of charcoal carpets, walnut paneling, and slinky bathrooms with irresistible rain showers.

Extra in-house perks include a fine-dining, season-driven restaurant from A-list restaurateur Andrew Carmellini; a complimentary town car service; and twice-daily housekeeping service.
