THE STAYCATIONERS: NIGHT HOTEL THEATER DISTRICT

There’s just something about the crisp light in between Midtown’s skyscrapers. Maybe it’s the monochromatic color scheme, the glow of Times Square’s flickering LED screens…either way, Night’s penthouse balconies (that’s right, plural) serve as the ultimate stage, THE STAYCATIONERS merely players. Or subjects of an impromptu girl squad photoshoot, rather. Cue the curtain.

Most Midtown hotels are like, très miz. Which is why we scouted out this 45th Street gem for a truly city-savvy Theater District experience, just close enough to the action but far enough away from the horde of backpack-wielding tourists armed with selfie sticks and ready for a grand old three-hour wait on the TKTS line. Enter Night, where the unmistakable “N” rears its head as a recurring motif throughout the hotel, a constant reminder to its guests that it doesn’t get much cooler this side of town. Carpe noctem.

THE STAYCATIONERS reveled in this 9th floor bi-level glass menagerie, sitting pretty dressed in Simon Miller getups with Bumble & Bumble working hair magic and going full glam with NARS essentials as each channeled her inner Broadway starlette. Exit stage left.

After a necessary al fresco photoshoot atop the room’s lower terrace, THE STAYCATIONERS made like Odysseus and succumbed to the siren song of the marquee lights below. Oh hey, Times Square characters. Sure you can hop in a shot or two…no, we don’t have any…oh, okay.

Sushi, all alone in the moonlight…just kidding, the house was packed but we had to throw a Cats reference in there somewhere. Night Hotel Theater District’s very own Red Moon serves up a mean chef’s selection sushi and sashimi, plus an array of killer accoutrements like honey glazed walnut chicken and a pillowy cubed steak teriyaki. THE STAYCATIONERS nibbled on this and that before retiring to the penthouse for some cocktails and R&R.
