Fodor's Expert Review 6 Columbus

6 Columbus Circle, 58th St. between 8th and 9th Aves., New York, New York, 10019, USA See on Map

In the shadow of the towering Time Warner Center, this boutique-style property from SIXTY Hotels has the vibe and amenities of downtown lodging with a convenient midtown location. A combination of sleek 1960s style plus a hip rooftop bar and midtown outpost of Blue Ribbon Sushi all make this hotel an attractive pick.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Rooms on lower floors facing 58th Street can be noisy.

room

Stylish and comfortable, rooms are decorated with artwork by Guy Bourdin, art books, and chevron patterned pillows. Some of the larger rooms have pullout couches and are a good option for families. Minibars are stocked with snacks from Dean and DeLuca.

The duplex penthouse with two terraces and killer views of Central Park is a worthwhile splurge.

bathroom

Midnight blue tiles give bathrooms a sleek look. All bathrooms are stocked with Frette bathrobes and REN bath products.

lobby

The small lobby has ‘60s-mod leather furniture and a view into Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar and Grill. The rooftop bar provides additional space to lounge.

dining

Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar and Grill is the uptown sibling of the popular downtown sushi bar. In addition to sushi and sashimi, they've also got a wide variety of other delicious things--like Asian fried chicken.

drinking

Overlooking Columbus Circle and Central Park, Hi-Bar is the hotel’s rooftop watering hole--it's got a pretty cool retractable roof and a ton of whiskey and sake options. The entire food menu from Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar and Grill is available on the roof.

LOCATION

Getting Around

Located on West 58th Street near 8th Avenue, this hotel is a stone’s throw away from Columbus Circle and Central Park. Midtown landmarks, including the Theater District, are within walking distance. Subway service is on the hotel’s doorstep, with the 59th Street/Columbus Circle station offering A, C, B, D, and 1 train service. Taxis and Uber are widely available, but traffic congestion can be a problem, as per usual.

Restaurants

Seafood and pasta are the specialties at Marea (3-minute walk) an elegant restaurant from Chef Michael White. Maison Kayser (2-minute walk) is stocked with fresh fare for picnics in Central Park, including sandwiches on crispy baguettes and pastries. American comfort classics from chicken pot pie to juicy burgers are served across the street from Lincoln Center at The Smith (7-minute walk).

Bars

For wine by the glass or espresso alongside small plates, pull up a stool at Redcork Winebar (1-minute walk). P. J. Clarke’s (6-minute walk) is a classic pub where martinis and pints of Guinness are ordered in equal numbers.

WHY WE LIKE IT

Midtown properties tend to be conservative in style, but this hotel goes in a different (and refreshing) direction with its fun 1960s inspired design. We love the rooftop bar, the buzz of Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar and Grill, and the location on the corner of Central Park.
