Recently, my mom came to visit me and see my new digs in Midtown West. Here she is at Hotel 414, which is this adorable boutique hotel that just got remodelled this past year. It now has a sort of urban rustic kinda them going on in the lobby – there’s wide farmboard wood planks forming the fireplace surround, all black chandeliers, dark grey slate floor tiles and a parallelagram shaped white marble reception counter with the same farm wood planks below. The front and rear doors they’ve painted a bright red and they put in a more cohesive front patio space that include upgrades to rectangular flower box arrangements with (albeit fake) boxwood bushes in them, slate tiles for the seating area and several bright red cafe tables and chairs. I have to say this makes my morning comute – I now walk to work – yay! – a lot more pleasant as I don’t have to navigate sharp corners around the hotel patrons on the street – most of them now gather in front seated at the chairs and therefore out of the sidewalk – which is great.
This is a shot of their back patio where they have several mosaic topped tables and chairs where you can have your breakfast outside. (I partook of the frosted flakes frequently!) My mom grabbed one of their croisants and some coffee.
