Hotel

Civilian

The buzzing neighborhood of Hell's Kitchen, close to Times Square and just far enough from the twinkling lights, is now home to CIVILIAN. This brand new hotel immerses you in the atmosphere of theaters with special lighting, stage curtains and raw industrial materials that refer to the backstage. The rooms are also bathed in the theater theme. As its name suggests, the Cozy Queen or Twin is small in size and comfortable (cosy) at the same time. The Spacious King or Double are, as you will have understood, more spacious. CIVLIAN is distinguished above all by the experience it reserves for its guests. You only pay for what you consider important. The base with a bed for the night, no frills. During your entire stay, no one will do the cleaning but if necessary, an application allows you to order shampoo or clean towels. If you prefer to find a shiny bathroom and a made bed every day, add housekeeping. Complete your stay with daily breakfast, early check-in or late check-out. WiFi is included, but you have to pay extra for super-fast WiFi. You can even get a day pass to the TMPL around the corner for next to nothing, a wellness center with a 25m saltwater pool, sauna and fitness room. A mixture of art, music and theatre, CIVILIAN blends harmoniously with the big names in Manhattan's creative and theatrical scene. In 2022, the following will gradually open: a restaurant, a secret garden accessible by a retracted entrance and a luxurious lounge where you can have breakfast, work or relax, and a rooftop lounge with a beautiful view.

The 489 rooms are modern and elegantly decorated. Just like in the Arlo SoHo and NoMad hotels, they are functional and equipped with all the gadgets for an urban explorer and they are also more spacious than the micro rooms of these sister hotels. With “Nearly Ninth”, a great catering concept has been implemented, which can be found in different places in the hotel. A breakfast at the Coffee Bar in the morning, snacks or a drink at the Bar + Lounge, a craving for Italian cuisine at the restaurant or a fantastic cocktail at the rooftop bar on the 26th floor with a breathtaking view of Hudson Yards, everything is possible here. From spring through fall, you can use an Arlo bike for free on a first-come, first-served basis. Day or night, the place is wonderfully quiet, while in the evening there is a vibrant vibe.

Arlo NoMad

The hip location gives the new Nomad Arlo brand a different vibe than its sister hotel Arlo SoHo. The concept remains the same: functional micro rooms equipped with an integrated bathroom, a rain shower behind frosted glass and practical storage systems such as bed drawers, fittings for coat racks. The windows are floor to ceiling wow...we hope you don't get dizzy. The Bodega Shop in the lobby serves 24/7 grab-n-go coffee and snacks. At Lamalo it is rather Middle Eastern inspired, also open for breakfast. On the 2nd floor you will feel at home at the large table in the comfortable sofas of the Studio, you can chat with whoever you want, friends or other tourists or simply deal with your e-mails. BARlo offers you refreshing drinks. The top is the bar A.R.T. NoMad (Arlo Roof Top) located on 31st with stunning views of the Empire State Building. Do you dare to stand on the glass floor tiles and watch the yellow taxis under your feet?
