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.
How to Get There
A bit pricey but it pays off with the spacious rooms, quietness, cleanness and amenities. The rooms are spacious and have everything that someone might want for a comfortable stay. Very clean. Great location.
I don’t usually write reviews but this hotel shocked me. When starting in NYC I’m use to small and cutesy rooms. We stayed here and the rooms were spacious, the bathroom was big and the counter could actually hold all my makeup, curling iron and other stuff. The room is so beautiful, love the magenta curtains ???? Most importantly the staff is amazing, friendly and accommodating. We had Dennis who checked us in and really went out of his way to get us into a King size bed. Then Zoe, a manager followed up to make sure we were taken care of and called Luis over to assist my request for a specific place to grab some libations. This service is by far the best I’ve had in NYC. I look forward to staying here again and will only suggest this place to friends and family
The hotel has beautiful and clean rooms, nice staff and is very close to trains. Restaurants can be found all around. I would certainly recommend this hotel and I'll stay here again if I would be in New York in the future.
