Guests receive free laundering of gym clothing during their stay.

For the more adventurous, the hotel provides bicycles (with helmet, if desired) for use by guests.


Asia de Cuba, the hotel’s restaurant, was closed for renovations but one of the meeting rooms had been turned into a pop-up restaurant that had the spirit of Asia de Cuba. A new restaurant design and menu is being prepared to open later this spring under the direction of the restaurant’s Cuban-born executive concept chef, Luis Pous.


The first morning, I had room service consisting of tea, toast, and yogurt and it came quickly with the toast nice and warm upon arrival. I was feeling better the second morning and I visited the pop-up space, enjoying small tastes from the expansive buffet as well as – at the server’s recommendation – the pancakes with maple syrup.

The Light Bar was no more – but the hotel promises a new bar “with a big secret” and, while it will be missed, I’m quite sure that whatever the secret is, it will be a big hit. During its run of over a decade, guests were bathed in vibrant colored lights and everyone looked fabulous.


I mentioned the hotel’s kindness in the opening of this piece. Throughout my stay, whether it was a quick phone call to housekeeping or a room service delivery, everyone asked if I were feeling at all better and several times I received a phone call asking if I would like some tea. I don’t think I ever felt as well cared for while away from home as at the St. Martin’s Lane and that speaks very highly for the establishment and its staff.
