Viceroy's first NYC outpost, with handsome interiors, a Marc Murphy restaurant, and central Midtown location
The Viceroy group’s first New York City outpost is the brand’s most sophisticated property to date, with the 57th Street address to prove it. The Roman & Williams–designed hotel takes inspiration from 1930s and ‘40s New York, with subtle Deco details in the bronze fixtures, marble flooring, and black and gold trim fabrics. Look up in the lobby and you’ll see a colossal bronze map of New York, with a red dot marking your prime location in the heart of movie set Manhattan. In contrast to the public spaces, the 240 guest rooms have a more masculine, den-like look, decorated almost entirely in wood paneling and supple leather. Beyond the industrial table lamps and slatted room dividers, furnishings are all custom-made, from the built-in closets to the leather luggage racks. Viceroy recruited Marc Murphy of Landmarc and Ditch Plains fame for the Roman & Williams–designed Kingside restaurant, whose street-level space has a clubby Deco vibe, a crowd-pleasing New American menu (roast chicken and braised kale for two; tuna crudo with uni vinaigrette) and drinks from the Gerber Group’s craft cocktail program. The aptly named rooftop bar, the Roof, is open year round on the hotel's 29th floor, with light bites supplied by Kingside. When the weather turns too brisk for a run in nearby Central Park, active types can get their fix in the 24-hour Technogym.
In the Area
On 57th Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues, the Viceroy is one block from legendary Carnegie Hall and a short stroll from some prime Midtown landmarks. Just two blocks away is the entrance to the 843 acres of Central Park, with its grassy knolls, picturesque bridges and gurgling fountains. Three blocks to the south you’ll find more than 150,000 photographs, sculptures, drawings and prints at the Museum of Modern Art, not to mention its stellar French-American restaurant, the Modern. Other upscale fare in the vicinity is equally outstanding: Per Se, Jean-Georges and Marea are all within walking distance. And no stay in Midtown is complete without a shopping spree along Fifth and Madison avenues; go for retail therapy at Bergdorf Goodman, Saks and Fendi, to name a few.
