Midtown glamazon with a prime Fifth Avenue address and a Michelin-starred restaurant
On a busy Midtown block, Langham Place, New York, Fifth Avenue has a simple exterior that belies the modern style in neutral-tone oak, limestone, and onyx. It’s the kind of place that makes you speak in hushed tones and soak up the welcome—and carefully engineered—sense of calm. From the personal assistants to the maze-like spa, the hotel has a stately, elegant air that appeals to the business crowd as much as weekenders looking to splurge in style, and New Yorkers after a staycation. The 214 loft-like guest rooms and suites are among the city’s largest, with oversize windows that offer both sprawling city views and warm natural light along with panels of Italian walnut and rosewood, stark white linens, and slate-gray accents that lend an organic, subtly masculine vibe. The bathrooms, which are bigger than some city apartments, feature rain showers, televisions inset in the mirrors, and Zuma soaking tubs that look comfortable enough to sleep in. This cool kid on the block has already shown it can keep pace with the best of them, housing Michelin-starred Ai Fiori, his-and-hers Julien Farel salons, and the Chuan Body + Soul spa, which occupies the entire fourth floor. For an early morning workout during your New York excursion, there’s an impressive 24-hour gym that’s fit for athletes and insomniacs alike. After all, New York is the city that never sleeps. But if you must, do it in a Duxiana bed.
