Archer Hotel, boutique luxury?  Not really.  our first room had AC that didn't work and instead of moving us to another open room, they said they would have it fixed.  I didn't want to wait to see if it was fixable, so I asked to be moved. The hotel moved us to the same crappy room, one floor below, right next to the elevator.  If all the rooms are as small as this one, the beds have 2O" clearance to the wall,  big people should stay away.  The  concierge had the attitude of a guy who just moved to NYC from Iowa and boy was he tragically awesome.  I asked if the Whitney allowed luggage storage and before I could say Whitney he said, "no, no, no, THE museum will not even let you in the lobby". Well I think he thought I was going to say MOMA, so he just talked over me.  The Whitney will allow luggage and we stored ours there.  The room finishes are not luxury,  The faux wood is of such low quality that it is already cracking. The lighting behind the bed gives a green tinge to the wall and the vinyl must be of the $3.00 a yds variety .  The AC controls are held on by a string and moved when touched.  The roof top bar had a door man that kicked us out when we absentmindedly walked in with a coke bottle  with 1/2 oz left in it.   we did have very nice man that overruled hm and invited us back in, but the hostess asked us for our credit card three times. The worst..... the outlet didn't work and my computer remained uncharged over night.  This place has a good location, but it isn't worth the cost.  the best part, they have very nice doorman.

We had a wonderful stay at the Archer. The room was very clean, well appointed with very comfortable beds. The staff was beyond accommodating. The restaurant Fabrick was lovely and the concierge William was amazing! He went out of his way to help me mail a package home, going so far as to personally pack and send it to make sure that the items inside we packaged perfectly. Very much appreciated and we will be back for sure!

Great hotel with convenient location. Rooms are small but clean and nicely decorated.  Great rooftop bar with view of the Empire State Building.

I live in NY and had cause to recently stay at this hotel and it is truly wonderful for a number of reasons.
The staff are absolutely amazing and nothing is too much trouble - this is all staff !
The rooms are fabulous and so clean, the beds are amazing and so comfortable you won't want to get out of them. Under the bed is a great storage area for shopping and suitcases - great idea. There is a brand new Nespresso in each room which is wonderful.
The turn down service is wonderful and each night you get  different little treats.
The room extras are very cool and great beauty products and complimentary slippers
There are a selections of papers such as The NYT each day and lots of chill out areas to read and enjoy.
The restaurant and bar  were excellent and the rooftop Spyglass Bar  is a must - Joe The Manager and his team provide great service and it offers a fantastic view of the NY Skyline and especially the Empire State Building.  Great to sit back and relax as the ESB lights come on.
The hotel itself is quiet but it is so central to Macy's, Lord and Taylor, Bryant Park, MSG and Times Square, Central Park - fabulous location.
This hotel is definitely one of the best hotels I have stayed in - go check it out!

The room was finished well and he location was good, but the view was of an office building. Each morning we woke to office workers looking in on us. Terrible. Oh and the air con was so loud it couldn't be used.

Stayed here recently for a bachelorette party, and it was the PERFECT venue for this- sexy and hip hotel with beautiful décor and luxe extras- Nespresso machine, Frette robe/towels, turndown service treats, etc.  It really made the weekend extra special to stay in an immaculate and fun/trendy hotel.  The concierge (I think his name was Anthony?) was so helpful and left the bachelorette a fun note and some bubbly.  Gabriel (at front desk) was also very helpful and so welcoming- the staff here is really top notch and they really care about making guests feel welcome and special.  The rooftop bar was amazing and had THE BEST view of the empire state building- and had a nice crowd, interesting drinks, etc.  We just loved it!

Great spot with easy access multiple places. Very slick decorations. Small rooms, but very well planned. Front desk checking was great. Justine helped correct an error in my reservation over the phone (my fault) and remembered me when I came in. William walked us up and set us up in the room. I usually don't like room service like that, but it was very nice. Amazing and free salted caramel was in the room. Free internet for up to 6 devices was great. Justine sent us a really nice present for my wife who celebrated her birthday there tonight. Really classy place. Very lucky to find the spot.

Stayed at the Archer from 6/20-6/23 on a short trip to visit friends in NYC. I had emailed the hotel after booking my stay to inform them I would arrive about 4 hours before check in time. They were very prompt to answer my email and assured me that they would do anything possible to accommodate me. So, I arrived early and they held my bags while I went for a quick lunch. Within the hour they called me to let me know my room was ready.
Nice, clean, new room. Comfy king size bed. Nespresso coffee maker in room.  Every staff member (front desk, housekeeping, bar) was super attentive and friendly.
Nice value for a boutique hotel in a nice part of town.
Great, central location. Great view from the rooftop bar.
I didn't get to try out their restaurant, that's on my list for my next visit.
All in all, I had a great experience in this hotel. I definitely will be staying there on my next trip to Manhattan.

I just got back from my stay at the Archer Hotel and absolutely loved everything about this place.

A) Location, location, location....a few blocks from Bryant Park, a few blocks from Herald Square shopping, and amazing views of the Empire State Building
B) Aesthetics & Room Set-up...the furnishings in this place were beautiful. I fell in love with the yellow couches in the lobby and my comfy bed with a variety of pillow types was great. My king-size room was small but the space was used efficiently so I did not feel cramped.
C)Loved the bar options - albeit, the rooftop was tiny especially since the outdoor patio was closed due to the frigid temps, but still, so nice to be able to have delicious drinks at your fingertips
D) Staff! My check-in and check-out were a breeze due to the super friendly staff. I was extremely thankful that they were able to accommodate both my early check-in and late check-out requests
E) Value. I got a rate of slightly under $300/night through a travel site and felt that was a good value based on what the hotel offered. I would make this my regular hotel if rates remained about the same.

The only negative I can note was the hallway noise due to the not-so-sound-proof doors. It wasn't that big of a deal since there are so few units on each floor, but if you're a light sleeper, this might concern you.

Can't wait for my next stay!!!

Great stay the staff was Friendly and helpful rooms clean and nice on our 2nd day of our stay we left the pravicy hanger on the door when we left for the day called the front desk when we returned and asked for more towels and told them what happened and when we went to dinner they sent someone to make up the room they went beyond what we expected

If you're visiting New York City for the first time this hotel is the place to be. With their rooftop bar and the amazing concierge, the Archer Hotel is more then accommodating. The rooms were small but space was used efficiently and the David Burke fabric was high class to say the least. I couldn't have been any more pleased with the over all experience at this hotel   Especially for being my first time in the big city

Travel to NYC often for work and typically reserve accomodations in Midtown to be close to the office.  I recently stayed at the Refinery Hotel, but decided to shake it up this time around and try something new with Archer. Both Refinery and Archer are gorgeous, four-star industrial-chic boutique hotels located on the same block (38th & 6th Ave.), but Archer's customer service was second-to-none.  The hotel staff greeted me by my name every time I arrived at the hotel, asked if I needed transport or restaurant accomodations before I would leave, and periodically checked in via note or phone to be sure my stay was turning up roses.  Turndown service every night was accompanied by a treat; always local flavor from New York bakeries or chocolatiers. Rooms were small, yet efficient.  Ideal for business or romantic travel.  Although I don't typically stay at the same hotel twice in NYC, Archer has found a return customer! Highly recommend.

Original Review 6/13

Spyglass is a great little rooftop, on top of the Archer Hotel!

The space is separated in two. one area has a small gathering room w/ a TV and the other is the actual roof top, where the bar opens up to a terrace, great view of the Empire State Building.

We ordered the Candied Bacon.......WHICH IS PHENOMENAL!!!

Nice,small, lounge for after work drinks!

I thought this hotel was amazing.  The rooms are designed to give you the total new york feel (believe me, i've lived there before and this is true.)

-They are very small but super comfortable.  
-The Shower was amazing and the soaps and shampoos they provide are awesome.   -- The service was outstanding and they leave amazing little notes and gifts during the turn down service.    
-The tea downstairs was delicious.
-The bar on top with the rooftop view was beautiful (what a view!)  
- Front Desk and Bellhops, all awesome.

Would absolutely stay here again :).

Great new boutiquey hotel just a block south of Bryant Park. Stayed here twice and so far, very excellent. Very friendly front staff. Similar to Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas in that art drives the design. Nespresso machine in each room. Rooms are not tiny, which is a good thing this part of town. Spyglass bar on the rooftop.

For the most part I like this hotel. Yes, the rooms are small but that's NYC. They all are. They're nicely decorated, well appointed and clean. Bar/restaurant both downstairs and on the rooftop are equally nice. One flaw though is that the walls are really thin. I can hear neighbors loud and clear. Kids and all. I can also hear every door open and close, at all hours. I can hear housekeeping knocking on every door at 8am asking if they're ready to have their room cleaned. It was like an army wake-up call! Obviously at this point they can't do anything about wall thickness so my advice would be to bring ear plugs for sleeping.

I'm from NYC so I didn't stay here but I did go here to visit a friend, this is a very high end manhattan hotel... I enjoyed very much especially hanging out on the roof top in their cool little bar with a fantastic view if the Empire State Building, at night it's even more redic because the skyline is illuminated ...  The ambiance is highly sophisticated upper class ppl who clearly are not from the city that never sleeps! Drinks are extremely pricy but it's a great vibe and feel!

Nice modern hotel in Midtown.

The location is i the middle of everything and not close to anything so prepare of a lot of taxi ride from here(depend what you wanna go of course)

Hotel has good standard but not in the class as a top luxury hotels , so if you find Archer interesting i would not pay as much as the other hotels. (I have stayed at Surrey and triumph soho) Archer are comparable with for ex Iroquiz, Chandler, The James and soho grand.

Front Desk
Most of them are very nice and some seam to be unexperienced, but they are doing their job correct.

A normal room are very small, its ok for me cause room are nice decorated.
Very nice bed, extremely GOOD comfort.
AC/klimate very NOISY, and also hard to get a good temp in room
Cleaning VERY good
Sounds from street its normal for NY, not that loud from 10th floor.
If you choose a cheaper room (as we did) you will probably still see  Empire building but you will have most of the view towards an working building (as a retarded reviewer comment below,) thats its not a problem because its NY.

Restarants and Rooftop
Restaurant we did not try, i don't like the style, it look a little to "plastic" for med and the yellow couches look not that good, not that crowded.
Rooftop was ok, drinks I think they are to expensive comparing what you get, not that crowded, People choose Refinery instead and Spyglass get the leftovers a drink its about 15-18 euro.

Tip: if you want to o to Newark its very simple to take the train from 34 st and it cost only 12,50 euro, no cab needed if you have 2 working legs.

Could go back if price ok, but a little worried about the loud climate/AC.

Visited the rooftop bar on Christmas evening. Excellent view, cocktails and service. However, surely not a place that goes easy on the pocket: $80 for 4 cocktails.

Nice, shiny new hotel but I've only been to the rooftop. There's a great close-up, unblocked view of the Empire State Building and "Spyglass" bar area with stools.

The rooftop is smaller than I expected, and there's not that many seats to lounge around on. Mostly people standing around - which is more conducive to mingling.

Extremely impressed. After a long hard day, we needed food and drink immediately after checking into our room. Learning the hotel restaurant was fully booked and not seating hotel guests until an hour after our arrival, the front desk staff jumped into action creating a make-shift table for dining along the swank yellow banquettes in the bar area. Amazing. Not only that, but wine was served as soon as our asses hit our seats and wait staff was there to take our orders pronto.

Other details such as helping us figure out directions, next day's transport options and even calling ahead to our destination to confirm bookings, was accomplished without question or hesitation.

One can book a hotel anywhere for this price in New York. What will keep me coming back to this hotel, is the knowledge that the staff will exceed my expectations with a smile, the rooms are well designed/well stocked with Mallin + Goetz products, and that the food at Fabrik is killer!

Archer Hotel all the way baby!

Stayed here for three nights on my minimoon.  The decor, location, and service was phenomenal.

When we showed up at checkin, they said that our reservation was actually for August and not July.  Despite that mixup, they gave us a phenomenal room at the same rate and did not give us a hassle.  It also only took them minutes to fix, which was fantastic.

The room is small (forget doing calisthenics or yoga there), but it has everything you need.  Also, I constantly discovered fantastic small touches (such as the reading lights next to the bed and the small space for luggage under the bottom of the foot of the bed).  We reserved a room with a view of the Empire State Building and we got a room with a phenomenal view on the 19th floor.  It was fantastic.

Rooftop bar was also amazing.  As well as the nice shower.

During turndown service, they leave a small dessert from a local NY sweetery.  Such a great way to end a day in NYC.

Stayed here two times for work and both times are wonderful.
Staffs were friendly and greet me by first name basis.
Hotel location was very convenient to everything in the City. 5 blocks to Time square, 10 blocks to Grand Central Station, 7 blocks to K-town, 3 blocks to Herald Square etc.

Rooms were very clean both times around but was on a bit of a small side even by NY standards.

There's a rooftop bar so if you like night life or a HH drink, this place is good. But if you travel w/ family then the bar can get annoying.

Rooms didn't come with bathtub only a walk in shower so if you have family (small kids) or plan to take baths this may be a problem.

Their room service/ kitchen close at 11pm, so if you check-in late at night you may want to find alternatives.

Other than that I would highly recommend this place over any W hotels in NYC.

Nice hotel, clean and comfy bed.  I would give a higher score but the front desk service is very sub par.  I checked in late on Sunday night and when I walked to the front desk there were 4-5 employees just hanging out.  I felt like I was interrupting their fun.  The attendant didn't ask anything about myself or even try to have s conversation with me.

The room is impeccable...clean...and typically small like I expect from NYC hotels.  No view and next to the elevator.  

My biggest disappointment was coming back to my room at 3pm after being out since 8am and the room was not yet serviced. When I asked at the front desk I was given a cynical response that they have over 100 rooms they service and my room will be done by 8pm.  Just an apology would have sufficed.  Again...I was left to feel like I was intruding on their space.

As cool as the Archer is, I will probably not stay here again nor recommend it due to the fact that I was not made to feel like a welcomed guest....I actually felt like an uninvited guest.  

Although the director of sales did listen to my concerns (which I'm thankful about) I should not have had the experience I did...I wish more thought was paid to my experience from the minute I walked in the door.

We had a great stay at the Archer during a recent trip to New York. The staff is extremely friendly. Great location with easy access to Penn Station, Broadway and theaters, and the MOMA. The cost of the hotel is competitive and quite reasonable for the value. The rooms are small, but hey, it's a New York hotel and I've seen smaller. There are lovely touches like the turn down service which is complete with chocolates or cookies. We very much enjoyed the Nespresso coffee maker in the room. Very clean. Overall, a five star experience and I would certainly come back.

I've been lucky enough to stay in a lot of lovely hotels in my time, but the Archer hotel was probably one of the best for service.

The location is amazing, and the views spectacular. You also get amazing cakes and sweets when they turndown your room (I even got free tickets to the Empire State Building).

The staff however, could not be faulted. They were like friends. It's very cool (my 63 year old mum didn't feel out of place) - and very friendly.

Archer Hotel, how swanky are thee? Let me count the ways....

Only open for a couple of months, this boutique hotel is beautifully designed, airy, light and staffed by genuinely kind people who make your stay a delight. My cousin was keeping a King room here while opening his third restaurant in NYC. On two occasions during my recent visit home, we stayed while he enjoyed family time.

The Lobby is loft inspired with vaulted ceilings and lots of natural light which makes it open, spacious and inviting. Chris at the Bugatti Bar is an excellent mixologist, David Burke's fabrick is a stellar restaurant and the Spyglass rooftop bar is a perfect spot to enjoy stunning views and sip craft cocktails. Since it is small, it is not as grand as Hotel Pierre, Waldorf Astoria, The Mark or Four Seasons it is also not as spendy!

The rooms are small, like most in NY, but the use and design of space is genius and they are luxuriously appointed from bedding to your choice of pillow firmness. We kept finding drawers (under the bed) outlets for smart devices, a portion of minibar has separate fridge for your use, Nespresso Bar, books to read, Frette robes, towels and slippers and local apothecary product. The view of the Empire State Building from the room was breathtaking, and I'm a native New Yorker. AC/thermostat kept room as we like  and the window opened for fresh air.

Centrally located in the Garment District and close to Bryant Park, Herald Square, 5th Avenue, MSG, Times Square, Broadway, the Library and subways, I will absolutely stay here again when I'm
back in a few months. Ask for a room with a view and gaze at the Empire State Building in awe!

This is a new midtown hotel that has fairly priced rooms.

The good:
-Prices are fair
-Everything is nice and new
-Beds are comfortable
-They do turndown and leave delicious gelees
-Free wifi
-Cool roof bar
-Free gym pass to NYSC
-Malin and Goetz bathroom products
-Charger in room for any device you might have!

The bad:
-The line for the roof bar
-The incredibly slow and over crowded elevators
-The mediocre food for breakfast at the restaurant
-If you loose a key they reprogram all keys, which is very annoying if there is more than one person staying in the room
-Loud hallways, we felt like we could hear everything in the morning
-Tiny, tiny rooms

Overall it's a good hotel with a central location. I would stay here again.

The Archer hotel is only six weeks young. It's located in a nice part of Midtown Manhattan near fantastic Bryant Park and the 42nd street subway.  It is walking distance to Times Square and is really convenient when roaming Manhattan.

By New York City standards the rooms are spacious.  Room air conditioning was very good blowing cold air on a hot humid July day.  

Room amenities are designed well and make for a comfortable stay.  The wall sconces on the headboard also act as reading lights.  They pivot out to articulate and extend for reading in bed.  The bed is designed with storage in mind.  A cut out at the foot of the bed is where to store your luggage.  Drawers on the side of the bed are a smart use of space but are easily overlooked since they are so well integrated.

Mini bar has decent snacks and beverages and fridge has a convenient separate cooling compartment for guest use.

Each bed has a choice of firm or soft feather pillows.  

Frette cotton robes are provided.  
Hair dryer in the shelf under the bathroom sink.
Nespresso in room coffee and espresso maker is nice.
Request ice and they deliver it to your room.
Wifi is complimentary (slow 2mbps is what I got).
Local apothecary Malin + Goetz  supplies the bath amenities.

Another small impressive detail are the integrated iPhone, iPad and android, mini USB charging cables behind the telephone.  Check out the fantastic view of the Empire State Building from their rooftop bar.  Archer is a beautifully done hotel and is a great choice when visiting the city.

Archer is the epitome of a boutique hotel. Due to its convenient location (approximately 7 minute walk from Penn Station), I spent a night here a month or so back. It is modern, clean and provides an array of amenities to make their guests  comfortable including a Nespresso Machine, Malin & Goetz toiletries, frette bathrobes, Burke in the box room service, etc.. It was also Christmas time when I visited The Archer Hotel and there were picture books in the room. One was "A Very New York Christmas" - so charming.

My complaints are similar to other Yelpers.. The floor noise (I mean bloody murder screaming and there seemed to be no intervening by the front desk/management) and the room size. I've stayed in quite a few NYC hotels and this is among the smallest. Even the "king sized" rooms are less than 200 sq feet.

My advice: A one to two night stay - Archer's gotcha covered comfortably! But if you're planning a longer stay in the Big Apple, check out Archer's Den (similar to a suite) or look elsewhere.

Went to Fabrick for dinner with my girlfriends before a show. We were able to get a same day reservation during what is a busy pre-show dinner rush. We were seated immediately by the hostess who was wearing the most killer white jumpsuit! I was already sold. The evening only got better, our waiter was prompt, helpful, and attentive without being pretentious. When we ordered the lobster dumplings for our table of four, he informed us that it only came with 3 dumplings and offered to throw in an extra one so that everyone could have one. Major bonus points right there!

For apps we ordered the avocado panda cotta which was a heavenly version of chips and salsa. The avocado was so smooth and delicious. This was beautifully coupled to the lobster dumplings which were fantastic! I ordered the kale and endive salad which was amazing, it's citrus dressing was light. I also couldn't help but order a side of brussel sprouts which were savory with a hint of sweetness from the apples they were baked with. Very yummy!

This place was stellar, would highly recommend and you're best off making a reservation.

My Wife and I came here for a long weekend. The rooms were well kept, the treats at night end on the mini bar were exceptional, and the employees are AMAZING! Madelyn at the front desk was more than helpful during our stay, including pointing us to the comedy cellar where we saw an impromptu performance by Chris Rock! She is the best, and was great to us for our entire stay. Let's talk about the rooftop bar, AMAZING! The bartender there (Shibu sp?) was fantastic, energetic and a great bar tending host. We will be staying here next time around for sure!

Stayed here for a stay-cation - not much to complain about. This is a business oriented hotel so the rooms are small, but the amenities make up for it.

- The bathroom is by far the best part of the room - the rainbath shower is so relaxing, as is the peppermint shampoo and herbal soaps they give you. The counter space and lighting in the bathroom is great for women (relating it to myself, sorry) putting on makeup and doing their hair.

- The room also comes with a Nespresso which I wish I didn't go so heavy on because the beds are very comfy. Would have gotten a better night's sleep if I wasn't jacked up on caffeine.

The only complaints I have with this hotel are:

- I got a room that looks into an office building that has honestly, miserably looking workers. While watching TV that night, I couldn't help but look over every once and a while at the guy working in his office across from my room. He literally was there until like 10. I left for dinner at the downstairs restaurant (also awesome) and came back and he was still churning away with a scowl on his face. I felt bad for him. Guy across the street, I felt your pain.

- The air conditioning/heat unit is super loud. I am used to sleeping with a fan on so it didn't bother me too much. At least I couldn't hear the streets below. Perhaps that's why they have these units in each of the rooms.

I was so impressed during our 3-night stay at The Archer. The Archer is located in Midtown and is truly in a perfect location. It is within walking distance to nearly everything, but far enough away from the crazy tourist district of Times Square. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted warmly and fully taken care of by the staff. They were so kind and thoughtful from the smallest things (pushing the button on the elevator), to dinner recommendations, booking me a taxi, etc.

The hotel has a nice atmosphere. Like any NYC hotel, the rooms are small, but the Archer maximizes space well- room under the bed for bags, sliding bathroom door, etc. The decor in the room was non-traditional and funky. There was a large TV, Nespresso, reading lights by the bed, universal chargers, and even a copy of The Little Prince tucked behind the TV. What a cute touch. Every night when we turned in, there was a note and a little sweet waiting for us.

The restaurant at the hotel is very nice and the rooftop bar has a killer view. I would highly recommend The Archer for anyone's NYC trip, especially couples traveling together (the room may be a little small for a family). We will be back!
