Hotel Details

Centrally located in NYC's vibrant NoMad neighborhood, Life Hotel is in the original building that once housed the iconic LIFE magazine, where celebrated writers and artists worked, resided, and played. The hotel echoes the original dual-use of this iconic property. The 98 newly renovated guest rooms, ranging from "Classic Queen" to "Premium King" and multi-room "Suites," pay homage to the spirit of the building's 1893 heritage with a modern twist: wrought iron bed frames, brass fixtures, contemporary furnishings, high ceilings, unique artwork, and Carrera marble countertop bathroom vanities with full bath and 7-inch rainshower heads.

The hotel offers amenities and services like all-natural, socially conscious LATHER bath products, access to a 24/7 fitness facility outfitted with Peloton stationary bikes, 60-inch flat screen TVs equipped with streaming functionality EVOLVE by Google Chromecast in almost every room, and a pet-friendly policy.

Opening in late November 2017, full service Life Restaurant, by Chef Michael Vignola and veteran restaurateur Stephen Hanson, will offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner, in addition to a full bar in the lobby and an intimare, basement bar serving classic cocktails harkening back to the days LIFE magazine staffers used this space as their own speakeasy. The space can also be utilized as a private dining or meeting space for up to 60 people.
