FEATURES:
Two striking new hotels aim to engage the energy of the Meatpacking District and the East Village with ambitious architectural statements on the street level -- not just in the bar and bathtub -- while industrial zones citywide are proving unlikely hotspots for a hotel boom.
Impresario Andre Balazs' sculpted concrete tower makes a heroic stand on the High Line.
In this latest Astor Place arrival, hotelier Klaus Ortlieb extends a tradition of suitably incongruous East Village aesthetics.
Because a quirk in the 1961 zoning code treats hotels the same way it does factories, some hoteliers are plumping pillows where metalworkers once stamped tin.
