A luxury hotel on the rise in the Garment District, cryptically described by its developers as “an independent boutique property” will open in spring 2014 and room rates will start from $350 a night, the New York Post reported.

The 21-story, 180-room Archer New York will be located at 45 West 38th Street. The room rates far eclipse the area’s surrounding hotels, such as the Hilton Garden Inn and Courtyard by Marriott, which offer shelter in the $200 a night range.

The Peter Poon-designed hotel is owned by LodgeWorks, which scooped up the site in 2011 for $15.6 million. The Wichita, Kan.-based company has developed more than 120 hotels valued at more than $2 billion across the U.S., and is working on a 116-room Hampton Inn in Downtown Brooklyn.

The hotel will have four room types, each with a distinct combination of furnishings and draperies. Glen Coben, who designed the rooms, told the Post that “there is an element of guestroom roulette as travelers will not know which of the four types they will get.” [NYP, 1st item]  – Hiten Samtani
