Hyperactive kids in tow? Looking for the perfect place for a family reunion? Mint checks a lot of boxes that no other place in the city does. Not only does it offer half a dozen activities free to its guests (bowling! A golf simulator! Use of a fancy screening room! A two-story gym!), even its smallest rooms are larger than many NYC apartments, and all have kitchens, though they’re basic ones in the smaller rooms. Larger units have pull-out couches and multiple bedrooms so that you can stack up the guests, and some have full-sized dining rooms tables and in-unit washer/dryers. All of this is hidden within a glam Art Déco-era skyscraper, which has a full grocery store on site (the staff here will stock your kitchen for you at the cost of groceries with no mark up), I had to deduct one star for the spongy Casper mattresses (some will like them; I don’t) and the spooky, luridly colored portraits that stare down at guests from every room (the gent showing me around admitted that a lot of guests cover the art with sheets!).
