A luxury boutique property, Hotel Hugo is the product of a partnership between real estate developer Matthew Moinian and Fortuna Realty Group, LLC. Located in Hudson Square, the hotel’s appeal lies with its close proximity to shopping and cultural destinations offered by Soho, TriBeca and the West Village. Hotel Hugo is 20 stories high and features 122 guest rooms, including two must-stay top-floor suites and a must-see rooftop lounge that offers a 360-degree view of New York City.
Architect Marcello Pozzi, based in Beverly Hills, Ca, served as the project’s architect and designer. Beginning with the exterior, he implemented a sleek modern finish with exposed concrete that mimics the neighborhood’s 20th century, industrial-style warehouses. The interior includes 104 rooms with king-size beds and 18 rooms with two double beds; the two top-floor suites allow a double room to connect with a king room.

With custom-made Italian furnishings in each room, Pozzi offers a sophisticated residential-like design to ensure guests feel right at home. All rooms come with a great view, and guests can choose to view the Hudson River or the downtown skyline.
For the hotel’s entrance, Pozzi and his team installed a 17-foot glass façade that leads into a two-story lobby where guests are greeted by an environmentally friendly green wall behind the check-in desk. Vertical gardens can be found throughout the ground floor leading into the restaurant’s private dining room, which has an expansive skylight and uber amounts of gorgeous foliage.

In keeping with the thematic design and feel of the project, Pozzi used authentic woodwork by Italian craftsman throughout the hotel’s common areas and guest rooms, making this stylish get-away well-suited for vivacious city vacays or booming Manhattan business trips.
