Cool, New Hotel in NYC?

Will be in New York for a few nights and am looking for a new hotel experience... want a newer hotel that is hip, but good value for the money (it doesn't have to be cheap, just better value than similarly priced hotels).  My friends are staying at the Gansevoort in the Meatpacking district, but I don't really care for it.  I'd actually stay somewhere near or within a reasonable cab ride of the Meatpacking district (SoHo, Chelsea, Tribeca, Etc.), but am also open to ideas that are farther afield.  Thanks.

I would try the Hôtel Americano in Cheslea.  It's hip and fun, has a gorgeous roof deck and a private pool that never seems to be crowded - even on the busiest of Summer days.  

It's walking distances to Meatpacking District, but especially close to High Line Park

I've lived in New York for over half of my life, and often suggest to visitors they stay there.

I love The Standard New YorkThe Standard Hotel -- it's in the Meatpacking District and right on the amazing High Line Park! It's also within walking distance of the fantastic Chelsea Market, home to restaurants and food shops galore.

While rooms in the Standard can run on the smaller side, if you splurge and opt for a water-side room (which you should) the floor-to-ceiling glass windows afford marvelous views that more than make up for any lack of square footage. Room service is pretty excellent, and the onsite restaurant and bars are fun, too.

As a city resident, I stayed here a few times when I needed a staycation and it was worth every dollar! With that said, I booked one of my stays through a heavy discount on Jetsetter, so keep your eyes peeled for discounts and promotions.

This is a little further uptown, but I really like Eventi - A Kimpton Hotel. I am a big Kimpton fan for their cute amenities and good customer attentiveness, plus they usually have great restaurants. I haven't been to Humphrey, in this location, but I can vouch that they usually don't go wrong.

I recently stayed at The James Hotel New York and it was very hip, very central to Soho, and very classic NY (small rooms). It was also very close to Babbo, a great Mario Batali restaurant. The ravoli was fantastic and the pork chop was said to be the best in the city (according to the old timer sitting next to me who eats at Babbo 4 times a week).

we just stayed at the Affinia Dumont Hotel near Grand Central Station in Murray Hill- a short walk from Penn Station. The two room suites are huge, it has a small kitchen and luxurious bathroom. Ask for an upper floor with an uptown/East River view. The Turkish Cuisine restaurant in the Meatpacking District is authentic and memorable.

I know you didn't ask for this, but if you need restaurants in the area, I would try Tartine. It's not quite in the Meatpacking District, but it's just a short walk over. The food is insane and I take French food more seriously than is reasonable. Only problem is that because it's small and insanely popular, it can get really crowded and you'll have to wait for a table. 

I hate to admit this, but Pastis is also really good if full of women who think they're Sarah Jessica Parker. 

If you're just after a quick bite, I'd head over to Chelsea Market. Great people watching and lots of places to pick up a quick bite to eat. 

Again, this is kind of out of the way, but I'd stop by the White Horse Tavern on Hudson for a drink if you have a chance.

I have not been for awhile, but really liked the Hotel Gansevoort in the Meatpacking District. They have a small pool on the roof which can come in handy if you are going over the summer.

I would recommend The Mark Hotel.  It's uptown on 77th Street half a block from Central Park.  I can not recommend a place more.  Lived in NYC for 11 years and never needed a hotel until we moved back from abroad.  Stayed here for a week and it was awesome.  Gorgeous space, hopping bar and convenient to just about everything (except for Brooklyn).

If you are insistent on being downtown, check out Mercer Hotel, 60 Thompson St, Soho House New York, Lafayette House and Tribeca Grand Hotel.

Check out The Nolitan Hotel in lower Manhattan. Its right next to Little Italy and Chinatown New York surrounded by cool restaurants. The hotel is pretty new with a hip/refreshing vibe. The service is awesome. It has a rooftop that overlooks the city.

I know this is a bit north of where you're aiming, but I would try the The NoMad Hotel. It's definitely one of the city's hipper venues and has some really fun, cool features like a fully functioning library (where you can have cocktails) and a STUNNING rooftop restaurant. My favorite thing about this place, though is the Parlour restaurant which has framed herbs from the famous Parisian taxidermy shop, Deyrolle.

Not a huge fan of midtown, but I loved my (budget, to me) stay at TRYP By Wyndham Times Square South. By Times Square South, they mean VERY south of Times Square. It is Hells Kitchen adjacent, and we walked to the northern entry to the High Line from here--and then down into Chelsea (New York). It was the most New York hotel I've ever stayed in. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post links here, but I have a review here:

This is just on the edge of Chelsea, but i'd recommend 

INNSIDE New York NoMad.  Very nice newer hotel that I didn't spend that much money on, despite the location and amenities.  walkable to other neighborhoods as well and right on the corner of a subway stop.  I enjoyed being able to hit up Koreatown as well as walking to all the tourist spots and the Chelsea area.  For soho and tribeca, you could cab/subway and save your feet.
