Hudson Hotel: Sky Terrace & Private Park
Urban adventure, daredevil design and true affordability meet in Hudson, the ultimate lifestyle hotel for the 21st century. Located on the 15th floor, Sky Terrace is a large private landscaped terrace with sweeping city and Hudson River views – all for the exclusive enjoyment of hotel guests.
It is the ideal spot for soaking up the sun and enjoying a quiet drink and light fare while admiring the breathtaking panorama below. The Sky Terrace offers free WiFi and is open to hotel guests, Global Card holders and Invite Only VIP Guests. Another refuge lies in the heart of the elevated lobby – an enchanting Private Park with towering 45-foot trees, ivy-covered walls and an inspired assortment of antique and modern garden furniture. Outfitted with heaters and a glass roof, it is Hudson’s own microcosm of Central Park: an extraordinary refuge for eating, drinking, relaxing and enjoying the outdoors while removed from the bustle of the city below.
Soho House Pool
The Soho House rooftop has fantastic views over the West Village and the Hudson River. Members and guests, as well as those staying in the hotel, can lie on loungers or sit at tables for drinks and breakfast, lunch and dinner daily during the summer months. Where else can you brunch poolside, next to an all-glass balcony and take in panoramic views of New York City? Or go for a dip in the pool, bathing in the sun while sipping a Strawberry Lemonade Cocktail? This refreshing drink made with fresh lemons, muddled strawberries and vodka has been a rooftop favorite since its opening - even Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte enjoyed it in a summer episode. The Soho House Rooftop truly is the ultimate summer destination in Manhattan.
