Best Western Plus President Hotel

234 W. 48th St., between 8th Ave. and Broadway, New York, New York, 10036, USA

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

The President is the only politically themed hotel in the city, starting with the purple color scheme, a combination of Republican red and Democratic blue. Portraits and other political-theme items are scattered throughout the renovated hallways and rooms—suites have Revolutionary War uniforms on freestanding body forms. Primary, the hotel bar, serves political-themed cocktails and is popular with an after-work crowd. Standard rooms are small with moody, colored lighting that attempts to make up for the lack of natural light (bathrooms are even darker). Guests get free access to the nearby New York Sports Club and, on request, preloaded iPods. There are two on-site restaurants: Saigon 48 for Vietnamese fare, and Aoki, a Japanese/sushi eatery.
