The Maritime Hotel
Formerly home to the National Maritime Union, The Maritime Hotel pays homage to its nautical past with an instantly recognizable façade of round portholes in place of standard windows. Within walking distance of the Meatpaking District’s lively nightlife, this imaginative hotel offers room that are cozy, quiet, and never kitschy. Sink into a buttery leather club chair in the wood-paneled lobby alongside a roaring fireplace with a book from the large library. Retreat to one of the 126 guestrooms and look out over the Hudson River through your large porthole window.
- Explore the vibrant neighborhood or take a tour of the High Line on a complimentary bicycle
- Check in to one of the 126 guestrooms, each offers an extra-long work desk, artisanal minibar, and a complimentary daily newspaper
- Sip a grapefruit vodka Ruby Red Dragon cocktail in subterranean TAO Downtown
- Step onto the subway nearby to easily access all of New York City’s attractions
Feel like you are in the pulsing heart of Manhattan without ever leaving the comfort of The Maritime Hotel. You will be in the middle of some of the city’s best shopping and art, but if you prefer more culinary indulgences, stroll up to Chelsea Market, where you can gather essentials for a picnic to share while watching the sun set over the Hudson from the High Line. The hotel’s nautical theme has substance as well as style, creating a unique boutique ambiance that makes a truly memorable experience.

Priority Early Check-in
The 126 cabin-inspired guestrooms, ranging from Superior Rooms to the Rooftop Penthouse, include five-foot porthole windows overlooking the Hudson River, teak-paneled walls, and a color scheme of blue and white. Enjoy a restful night’s sleep in a custom bed dressed with Mascioni sheets. Relax on a plush couch sipping a soda from the artisanal minibar and freshen up in the rain shower with toiletries by C.O. Bigelow.
Staff are ever-willing to help, from advising the best routes to take on your complimentary bicycles to giving you the insider scoop on the best Chelsea bars and nearby nightclubs. Airy outdoor spaces provide striking views of the iconic Manhattan skyline — wonderful for sitting outside during warmer weather.
The Maritime Hotel has two outstanding restaurants, both perfectly contrast and complement one another, and both offer room service if you want to dine in the comfort of your guestroom.
TAO Downtown – Beneath the hotel, TAO Downtown is dark and sleek, with polished wood, low lighting, Chinese calligraphy, and a 40 ft staircase. The Quan Yin Buddha statue, with its 24 out-stretched hands, gracefully presides over guests. Sip a mango chili martini at the bar before exploring the pan-Asian menu, from crispy bao buns, salmon tartare, and crispy vegetable tempura to banana leaf black bass, Wagyu rib-eye teppanyaki, and tuna sashimi.
New restaurant coming soon! Please note that La Sirena closed at the end of 2018. Catch Steak, a new concept by Catch Hospitality Group, is expected to open in the fall 2019. In the meantime, you can enjoy daily complimentary continental breakfast in the lobby from 7–10:30 a.m. TAO Downtown is onsite for dinner, drinks, and in-room delivery from 5 p.m.–12 a.m.
Relax with a cocktail next to the fireplace in the lobby during cooler months or the beautiful terrace in the warmer months. Work out in the 24-hour gym, or take one of the complimentary bicycles and explore Chelsea. In the evening, party with celebrities and VIPs at local hot spot TAO Downtown Nightclub.
Chelsea Market is just across the street in the former Nabisco factory. This industrial space, where Oreos, Fig Newtons, Ritz Crackers, and Mallowmars were once created, is now a foodie paradise. Try the al pastor at Los Tacos No. 1, indulge in lobster on a buttery roll at Cull & Pistol or steamed whole and served simply with butter and lemon at Lobster Place. Taste rich Korean-style ramen at Mokbar and treat your sweet tooth to a PB&J donut at Doughnuttery. Then, walk off the calories with a unique perspective on Manhattan on the High Line, or a stroll through the Whitney Museum.
