They sweat the small stuff at the Mansfield: Wi-Fi is free, bathroom products are from Aveda, and even the key cards are snazzily embossed with scenes of old-timey New York. Built in 1904 as lodging for distinguished bachelors, this small, clubby property has an Edwardian sensibility that shows in details like the working fireplace in the lounge, the lobby's coffered ceiling, and a marble-and-cast-iron staircase. "Small" and "clubby" extends to the "petite" rooms, too—110
square feet, with ultrasuede headboards and microscopic bathrooms. The intimate M Bar, lined with books and leather banquettes, is one of the nicer hotel bars in town.
