The rooms at the Rivington are some of the coolest we saw. All rooms share the same amenities and as you go up the categories both the floor number and size increase while extra features are added. The standard rooms, which, although located on floors three to seven, still have decent city views, are sparsely appointed, but done so with elegant simplicity. A king bed draped in pure white linen sits on the light grey side of a carpet whose other half is black. Over on the dark side are a sofa and coffee table with voguish magazines as well as a desk and a fun fluffy pouffe. Lighting comes from discreet spots on the ceiling as well as through the floor to ceiling windows, some of which are frosted different shades. The room's amenities include a (rather small) flatscreen television, iPod docking station, cordless phone, a well stocked minibar and snacks as well was bathrobes and umbrellas in the closet. The bathroom has either a regular or steam shower with large glass doors and a fold-down wooden seat. It is tiled in black and features REN toiletries. The lines are precise and clean, including those of the moulded sink and the randomly placed circular mirrors. Those standard rooms which don't have a steam shower will have a balcony instead. The same room, but with a better view and both bath and shower, can be found on floors nine to 16 while on floors seven to 16 there are standard rooms with two double beds. You then have similar rooms with a deep, stand alone soaking tub and those with a corner position for a wider perspective on the city (which have either soaking tub or balcony). The 'Unique' rooms are not only larger but have one of three special features: a deep soaking tub, a steam shower or a balcony. They all have stunning views over New York with the Empire State Building and Midtown in full view. The bathrooms have stone tiling and are on the corner of the building, giving a 'conceal and reveal' element, meaning that some of the glass making up the walls is frosted. All of the suites are on the corner of the building and boast even bigger rooms and bathrooms as well as two televisions. The owner's suite boasts a huge open plan living space with a red collection of seating around a pillar and dining space. It has a separate room with four bunk beds which also has its own bathroom. The private terrace offers sweeping views of Manhattan. The penthouse, which represents the best Rivington can offer, is a three storey apartment with two bedrooms, one of which has a fireplace alcove and walk-in wardrobe. Its rooftop area, which is landscaped, has an eight-person jacuzzi and outdoor shower-the ultimate New York apartment experience.
