Downtown New York is always a favorite place to stay at a hotel on Manhattan. It’s much calmer down here than in for example Midtown and also way less tourists, which is an extra plus for a great experience. Conrad Downtown is located just a couple of hundred meters from The One World Trade Center and the Hudson River. In other words, a perfect location.
The terrace is quite small up here. But what it lacks in size, it gains in décor, view and drinks. A big sofa surrounds the whole terrace which creates a lot of seats. There’s also bar stools and chairs available if the sofa gets full. The long bar counter is also a popular place to hang out at if you like to stand while sipping your fancy cocktail.
Loopy Doopy Rooftop is famous for its unique drink called “Popsicle”. It’s basically a glass of Prosecco or Rosé with a popsicle (iced ice cream on a stick) stuck in it. The flavors of the popsicle various from each month. We tried the raspberry and mango. And wow, what a taste! I must say that this is one of our favorite drinks on a rooftop ever. Fresh and super tasty. As longer the drink lasts, the more the popsicle melts and creates a colorful drink. A must try at Loopy Doopy.
The atmosphere up here is lively during the weekends and a little bit more chilled out during weekdays. A great place for an afterwork during weekdays and pre party cocktails during the weekends. If you have the chance, you should def time a sunset from here, as it sets just behind the New Jersey skyscrapers on the other side of the Hudson River. It’s beautiful!
Conrad Downtown New York is a 5-star hotel with a new and modern feeling. It blends in very well among the other new downtown buildings and skyscrapers. The first thing you’ll notice when stepping in through the doors is the amazing lobby. Wow! A great first impression which lasts during your whole stay.
The rooms are modern and feels like classic hotel rooms. Bathroom feels fresh and so does the beds and décor of the room. If you can, ask for a room with a Hudson River view. It’s beautiful both during night and day.
We can recommend both The Conrad Downtown and Loopy Doopy Rooftop the everyone going to NYC. The location is great! Also, extra plus for the Hudson River view and the AMAZING popsicle cocktails. A must try!
