Hotel Spotlight: The Muse, New York City

By awayblog

The Muse is the definition of an urban oasis—if you're here, you're in the heart of New York City. Located just blocks from the bustle of Times Square, The Muse keeps to the signature quirk of Kimpton's famed boutique hotels and is one of four Kimpton properties in the city. Taking a cue from the lively culture that surrounds it, The Muse is characterized by sleek furnishings with a bit of whimsical flair—from leather headboards and plush animal-print robes to a chimerical "forest of trees" in the hotel lobby and the head of a stone statue reminiscent of Greek mythology adjacent your suite's flat-screen TV. Holding to the Kimpton philosophy of style and comfort, each bath is outfitted with luxurious Etro products, and each bed is tucked with goose-down feather bedding. In addition to spacious rooms (in a city where space is coveted), The Muse stays on trend with the desire to stay fit while on the road by housing a 24-hour fitness center with cardio machines, free weights, balance balls, and yoga mats. And if you want to explore the city on foot, ask the front desk for mapped running routes from the hotel's front door, or, as a guest of The Muse, take advantage of a complimentary day pass to Bally Total Fitness for the offerings of a full gym. Want to stay put? Ask about "Mind. Body. Spa.," an in-room spa service that also offers yoga or Pilates instruction in the comfort of your cozy digs. The Muse is one of the rare hotels that not only accepts pets but caters to them with no additional charge or deposit--treats, water, and food bowls are placed in your room upon check-in. If you're looking for personalized service down to the detail, The Muse is a gem in an area of New York where quality is often lost to quantity.'s New York City Travel Guide
