Fodor's Review

Budget fashionistas are once again drawn to the Hudson after a dramatic renovation of every single room in 2012. Starting at just 150 square feet, some rooms are tight on space, but do offer nice touches such as rich wood-paneled walls, work desks, and peekaboo showers. The fabulous lobby still seems like a set from A Midsummer Night's Dream, the several bars and lounges are perfect for people-watching, and the hotel's contemporary art is an escape from the usual hotel design, even in New York. The garden-lounge remains one of the more coveted outdoor spaces in town.

The Worst Place I Have Ever Stayed in NYC

Thumping techno music ALL DAY LONG, paper thin walls, pseudo "hip" lighting (i.e. dim or none), uncomfortable beds, overpriced drinks....if this is your cup of tea, take your chances on this hotel. One plus: the hotel is located just diagonal from the Columbus Circle subway station. That is the ONLY plus for this hotel.

Tiny Rooms/Great Location/Good Price

I recently stayed at the Hudson w/my wife and it was quite the experience. We are probably a tad more adventurous than others and didn't mind the 150sq ft room. We are relatively tall & the room was tiny. You do live out of your suitcase and small closet. We did not have a dresser. The bathroom was tiny. However, overall, room was efficiently organized. As long as you are not spending lots of time in your room, you should survive. We stayed 4 nights.

Location was great w/subway station w/in walking distance (as is Central Park) . The entrance to hotel is unique, chic, etc..

Room size is ridiculous

I loved The Hudson as a chic hotel but hated that they thought people should pay for the super-small hotel room. When we walked in from the street I was speechless, I loved the design and all the common rooms on the main level. When I went up to our room I just started to laugh because I thought "How silly". Apparently they wanted to create a 'residence feel' calling the restaurant "The Cafeteria" and one of the bars "The Library"...hence the dormitory
