Very few NYC hotels deserve the high price tag they wear. This one just may. Set in a former ecclesiastical building (a beaut of a red brick Victorian that was once the dormitories of a seminary), the Highline Hotel looms like a castle over Tenth Avenue. Its interior is as grand, though delightfully quirky, with rooms that look like they could have been inhabited by a Gatsby type in the 1920s. The drapes are a luxurious midnight-blue velvet, oriental rugs cover areas of the handsome wood floors, and unique works of art hang here and there. Each room is a different size, but all have high ceilings, often with the original plaster moldings, and beds swathed in feather-top mattresses. As you might guess from the name, the hotel is quite near to the super-cool Highline Park and fulfills its own hipster quotient by parking a food truck in one of its outdoor gardens (there are three) which serves guests coffee and pastries (there’s also a small cafe in the lobby).
