OHNY recently took a short neighborhood field trip to see the newly opened Fashion 26, part of the Wyndham Hotel chain. As its name suggests, the hotel capitalizes on its location in the Fashion District (on West 26th Street) and incorporates fashion conscious elements such as the reception desk modeled after a cutting-room table and the Mondrian inspired art piece made of spools of thread.

Deirdre Yack, Director of Sales & Marketing, led OHNY on a tour of the 280-room hotel, which just opened on April 15th.  Glen Coben designed the 22-story, glass-and-steel interior, making sure to include inspiration from the neighborhood.


The bedrooms reflect the neighborhood with pinstripe carpeting, button logos on the door numbers and a herringbone throw blanket, providing a comfortable yet upscale environment.

RARE Bar & Grill

The hotel’s restaurant is RARE Bar & Grill and there will also be a RARE View rooftop bar, currently under construction, which will take advantage of the views of the Empire State Building.


The hotel’s hallways will host a rotating art program, showcasing photography from nearby Fashion Institute of Technology students. Winning photographs will be selected for display through a photography competition for FIT students, “Style Through My Eyes.”
