Archer Hotel's Midtown West Neighborhood
Conveniently nestled in the heart of Midtown Manhattan on 38th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, Archer Hotel New York is the perfect address for access to the best of the Big Apple. A few steps from our front door are many ever-so-popular things to do in New York, including Bryant Park, Times Square, Theatre District, Empire State Building, and Fifth Avenue shopping. Suitable for all occasions, there is no other hotel in Midtown that makes your trip as comfortable or complete.
For an oasis in Midtown, look no further than Bryant Park. Two blocks north of Archer you will find locals and visitors alike lunching and lounging. Home to the classic Bryant Park Grill, New York Public Library, and HBO/Bryant Park Summer Film Festival, there’s something for everyone among the impressive lawn, trees, and sculptures between Fifth and Sixth Avenues and 40th and 42nd Street. No matter the season, you’ll love this lush greenspace tucked between skyscrapers.
Empire State Building
Whether you’re toasting the day with a cocktail from our own rooftop bar, Spyglass, or gazing out the window of your Empire View room, this cultural icon is easy to admire from afar. The Empire State Building, standing an impressive 102-stories high – the fifth tallest building in the United States and 34th in the world – is worth seeing up close, too. A five-minute walk from Archer, you will find art deco ceiling murals and a one-of-a-kind observation deck experience (purchase the express pass and skip the long lines).
Once the hub of American fashion and garment factories, the fabric of this neighborhood between Fifth Avenue and Ninth Avenue, and 34th Street and 42nd Street, is threaded with attractions. Also known as the Fashion District, this area is home to many showrooms from design and production to wholesale. You will also find tech start-ups, a range of restaurants and art centers. M&J Trimming, Mood Fabrics, The Fashion Walk of Fame and Culture Espresso are stylish neighborhood stops.
A giant and very central slice of big city heaven, Midtown is the apex of interest for all separating Upper and Lower Manhattan. Landmarks such as Times Square, Grand Central Terminal, Museum of Modern Art (home of Archer’s favorite Blue Sky umbrella), Radio City Music Hall, Broadway, Madison Square Garden, Fifth Avenue, and Macy’s on 34th Street are the headliner attractions.
