Slide back the door to reveal a shiny black and white subway tiled bathroom where the lights come on automatically. A real plus for anyone who gets up in the middle of the night. The large walk-in shower is stocked with great smelling, all natural Malin + Goetz toiletries. A pile of opulent Frette towels and adorable his and hers slippers are tucked into the vanity. My husband and I have had the privilege of staying in a lot of hotels, which means we’ve seen our fair share of hotel bathrooms. I can safely say the Archer NYC is a real standout.
