FrontRunners: Inn For The Long Haul

The Alex (212.867.5100, www.thealexhotel.com), a 33-story addition to midtown Manhattan’s landscape, straddles the line between hotel and apartment building. Sure, you can book a room for a single night, but for many guests, the apartment-style suites with gourmet kitchens, flat-panel LCD TVs, and digital audio systems serve as a sleek home away from home for longer stays. Designer David Rockwell’s interiors include well-conceived touches such as versatile custom furnishings—nightstands on wheels that double as writing tables and credenzas that camouflage flip-down desktops—designed for the business traveler who wants to settle in. And when you have a hankering for something that is not stowed away in your Sub-Zero, just ride the elevator down to chef Marcus Samuelsson’s imaginative new Japanese-American restaurant, Riingo, or simply dial room service for a delivery.
