Overview

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.
