Romantic Gay Get-A-Ways (or Staycation) in New York

New York City casts a romantic spell on us, with the iconic skyline, glistening lights, and winter’s embrace. Restaurants along quaint cobblestone streets offer intimate settings for you and your Valentine. From carriage rides through Central Park, to Broadway shows, New York is a stage for heartfelt connections. And for that luxurious weekend getaway, Arlo Hotels has got you covered with its romantic and cozy-style rooms that will certainly make for togetherness. Here are four different Arlo properties for you to experience:

Arlo Midtown

351 W. 38th St., New York, NY 10018-2914

When it comes to romance in NYC, couples will find love and adventure all around: nostalgia from the Big Apple’s iconic romance movies, walkable streets and parks and beaches to discover, first-class restaurants and so much more. Every neighborhood offers a distinctive personality and things to mark off your honeymoon checklist. Midtown is known for the central part of NYC and perfect for couples looking to experience the cultural institutions. Set as a launchpad for all things local, Arlo Midtown is centered in the heart of New York City, with the bright lights of Broadway and Times Square at your fingertips. The hotel’s elegant contemporary interiors by Meyer Davis and 325 thoughtfully designed rooms combine modern and natural elements for luxe comfort away from the chaos of the city.  Arlo’s suites with terrace spaces are ideal for those who want to experience a NYC style chic hotel. Couples can visit the hotel’s buzzing social spaces filled with Arlo’s signature branded programming such as ArLOL, Arlo Living Room Gallery; or take in the city views at The ART Midtown (rooftop).


Arlo NoMad

11 E. 31st St., New York, NY 10016

NoMad is not only home to the Flatiron building, but also the eclectic shopping at boutique shops, must-see attractions, curated tours, and red-hot culinary scene. NYC’s very own Empire State Building might not seem a place to hit up during a romantic trip to the Big Apple, but the landmark is home of some of the most exclusive packages (i.e. Sunrise at ESB) perfect for couples. The neighboring boutique hotel Arlo NoMad features 249 unique and thoughtfully designed micro-rooms where guests can soak up the city’s splendor amid the hustle and bustle. Guests looking to make the ultimate Instagram-worthy honeymoon photo memories should check out NoMad’s Sky View rooms, which feature wrap-around floor-to-ceiling windows and unmatched views of Manhattan to wake up to, making your NYC honeymoon stay a memorable one. On the 31st floor is ART NoMad, a rooftop lounge boasting jaw-dropping views of the iconic skyline where guests can partake in a classic NYC romantic experience: drinks and views on the rooftop with your loved one.


Arlo SoHo

231 Hudson St., New York, NY 10013

Manhattan’s downtown chic and cool neighborhood, The Village is where couples can enjoy independent art galleries, local and internationally renowned fashion designers, and charming cobble streets and cafes. To experience all this in a hotel Arlo SoHo offers that neighborhood vibe in their property. The hotel offers 489 rooms ranging from cozy bunk rooms to spacious suites. A little more space makes the hotel’s Arlo Suite feel like your own SoHo pied-à-terre. Views of Hudson Street paired with brass finishes, leather furnishings, and curated art create a stylish city crash-pad vibe. On the rooftop, guests can relax on the plush outdoor lounges, sip cocktails and enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the city.


Arlo Williamsburg

96 Wythe Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11249

This Valentine’s Day, head to the NEW Arlo Williamsburg, formerly known as The Williamsburg Hotel. The romantic and sexy hotel stands at the nexus of history and history in the making. The eight-story hotel designed by London-based design firm Michaelis Boyd (Babington House UK, Soho House Berlin) perfectly combines the neighborhood’s eclectic style with unmatched service and panache. All guest rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows and are richly tiled and textured with authentic reclaimed materials. For couples seeking romance, choose to dine at the property’s namesake restaurant or sip cocktails at the Lobby Bar or Mirror Bar. One of the most unique and romantic activities on property is dancing against Manhattan’s iconic skyline at ART Williamsburg, the hotel’s rooftop. One of the only New York hotels with a full-length pool, couples can take a dip together while looking at the facade of the city skyline.
