The most lovely rooftop bar and restaurant in Chelsea (Manhattan). The Gallow Greene. Make reservations to avoid a long wait. Also near the Highline, Chelsea Market, and the new Whitney Museum if you need somewhere to eat after doing those. Go for brunch or dinner. It's like Anthropologie meets a restaurant on a rooftop. A must.
Upon check-in, guests receive a "Joker" card (one per room) that equals a $10 credit anywhere within the hotel—the restaurant, bars, mini bar, room service, you name it. It's a lot more tangible and instantaneous than the thousands of points it takes to rack up a reward on other loyalty programs: guests who collect one Joker from each hotel create an "Archer Flush," and will be able to book a free night's stay at any of the properties.
