Italian hotel chain finds a New York home with apartment-style rooms and a sultry lounge
The only U.S. outpost of the Italian Starhotels group (which has properties in Rome, Milan and Venice), this hotel announces its cross-pond bravado with a long hallway lined with oil paintings and velvety banquettes, as well as a pink marble lobby crowned in crystal chandeliers.
Bed and Bath
The 179 rooms — large, especially by urban standards — are spread over seven floors, a number that feels refreshingly modest in this over-the-top part of town. Wall-to-wall carpets keep things quiet, and bookshelves, gilded mirrors and bureaus lend a residential feel. This traditional decor carries through to the Grand One-Bedroom Suites, which fill their 800 square feet of space with book-lined foyers, sitting areas and kingsize beds. The bathrooms, fitted with small TVs and two sets of sliding doors, are not only among the city’s largest but, with 55-gallon soaking tubs and fragrant Etro products, perhaps some of the most indulgent, too.
The backlit Insieme Lounge aims for a sultry vibe, with studded chairs, bright red walls and orchids. On the menu: wine, playful Italian-inspired cocktails like La Dolce Vita (Ketel One and limoncello, with a twist of lemon) and meals to match (antipasti, panini, pasta). Work it all off in the on-site fitness center.
