Glamorous celeb favorite with an indoor-outdoor pool and tri-level bar overlooking the Empire State Building

The Lowdown

Sure, this celeb-fave stay has serious style—just take a look at the three-story atrium lobby, with its manly, herringbone granite floors, black-and-white plaid wingback chairs, and mod fireplace—but you’re really here for what’s on top. A buzzy tri-level bar drips with crystal and marble and becomes the summer’s hottest scene thanks to an indoor-outdoor pool overlooking the Empire State Building. The spacious guest rooms and suites have floor-to-(high)-ceiling panoramas of the city, but even that can’t detract from interior designer Andi Pepper’s wild decorative fantasies, from chrome-framed headboards to fuchsia curtains and cobalt throws. Deborah Anderson’s sensual photographs up the hotel’s highly erotic charge, as do the bathroom’s deep soaking tubs. Tech amenities reign, with flat-screen TVs and Bowers and Wilkins sound systems that (upon request) come with hotel iPods loaded with apps, local info, and a custom playlist. High above the street, the heated indoor-outdoor rooftop pool and tri-level bar add serious wow factor, with glass floors protruding over Park Avenue and offering a bird’s-eye view of the city’s chaos. Recover the next day with a yoga class or spa treatment at the Exhale gym and spa.

In the Area

Walk your credit cards two blocks west and then north on Fifth Avenue, home to affordable chain stores, designer flagships and such tony department stores as Bergdorf Goodman, Henri Bendel and Tiffany. While you’re up there, grab lunch at The Modern before heading next door for an afternoon at the Museum of Modern Art. Six blocks from the hotel is Mario Batali’s sprawling monument to Italian food, Eataly, as well as some of the city’s best burgers and shakes at Shake Shack, in Madison Square Park.

My husband and I were so surprised by the spaciousness of our room. The overall decor of the room was beautiful. The staff was very helpful. I left an item in the room they recovered it and sent it to me right away!

Bring back Loccitane!

Don't like current products. Please bring back the Loccitane products. It took over an hour to get a hot water with lemon in the evening when I was trying to go to sleep. We called several times. Otherwise I love this hotel.

My new favorite hotel in NYC
Reviewed 3 days ago

I've stayed at the other Royalton Hotel location in Midtown but decided to try this location, and, typical to Royalton Hotels - it did not disappoint! I was shocked at how large the room was (I was in a simple Queen Superior) especially the bathroom (it had a full size tub AND a shower and still had room to move around (it wasn't cramped at all). I got in early and my room wasn't ready, so decided to eat at the hotel restaurant, Royalton Brasserie. I ordered a chopped salad w/ chicken and for a normal chopped salad...it was excellent! I'm a health foodie, so I was very impressed!

I only stayed 1 night, but as I often come to NYC for work, I'm already booking my next trip out and definitely will stay at Royalton Park Avenue again (and this time will try one of the larger rooms / suites) ! Plus - - Starbucks is across the street - - so a bonus for me / coffee-lovers.

This is definitely my new favorite hotel!

Top notch from beginning to end

I stayed at the Royalton for two nights and my experience was truly outstanding. I arrived exhausted, just past midnight, and was impressed by Alana’s fast, courteous and efficient service. A true hospitality professional. I got a beautiful room on a high-floor overlooking Park Avenue. The room was large, with an ultra-deep bathtub and nice amenities. The bed was just amazing...the most comfortable pillows ever. The hotel location is unbeatable, right across from Starbucks and steps away from zillion of restaurants, bars, supermarkets, delis.

I loved my time here and would come back on a heartbeat !
