CitizenM opens New York Bowery hotel

Arty new property in southern Manhattan has 300 rooms with XL king-size beds and a rooftop bar.

CitizenM has opened its New York Bowery hotel, a 300-room sister hotel to the citizenM New York Times Square.

The new location property has a ‘cloudM’ rooftop bar, outdoor terrace, and unobstructed views of New York, while the bedrooms are all furnished with an XL king-size bed and luxury bedding.

Glass walls allow for plenty of daylight and open to a view of the park outside, mirrored inside with benches and picnic tables.

Rattan Chadha, founder of citizenM, said: "When we were looking for our next New York location, it became clear very quickly that Bowery is an exceptional destination.

"We don’t want to be just another building, we want to become part of the neighbourhood’s fabric while showing New York’s visitors a different side of the city. Even the art we use will be drawn from the local art scene, as well as international contributors."

By 2020, the hotel brand will have around 40 properties either open or in development globally - more than doubling its current portfolio.

In North America alone, citizenM plans to open a dozen hotels, in cities that include Seattle, Boston, Washington DC, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Miami.
