The Alex Hotel

New York

Opened in 2004, the contemporary alex hotel in midtown manhattan stands close to grand central station, united nations and tiny shops of fifth avenue and madison avenue. What's more, guests will enjoy being close to times square, the theater district, and quick subway rides to soho, tribeca and wall street. A mile away, central park's verdant woodlands, waterways, gardens, meadows and ravines offer plenty of opportunities for walking, biking, jogging, skating, boating and bird watching. This manhattan hotel also stands 12 miles from laguardia and 17 miles from jfk international airports.

the hotel's specially designed interior is an asian inspired cacophony of orchids, bamboo gardens and votive candles. The popular restaurant, riingo, fuses japanese and american cuisine into delectable dishes of whole snapper with red miso broth, seared char with herb coconut milk, and desserts of donuts with green tea kulfi. Guests also can sip red apple martinis, the signature drink of alex's lounge. Guests will enjoy 24 hour room service, concierge service, a business center, fully stocked fitness facility, limo service, cell phones, dry cleaning and wireless internet access.
(...)
with the slogan "overnight or over time," the alex provides guests to midtown manhattan with the accommodations, services and locations close to everything that guests expect from a new york city hotel in the middle of the city that never sleeps especially one that goes by only one name.
