The 563-suite hotel, located in the heart of NYC exudes calm and elegance, reminiscent of the upscale Midtown residence of a contemporary art collector, with an emphasis on art throughout the property. Tasked with renovating the building into a luxury hotel, the design team set out with a vision of elegance and serenity that offers a calm space away from the hustle and bustle of NYC. While the décor is sleek and modern, it aims to achieve a timeless feel.
Guest are greeted in the lobby by a large, lifelike sculpture, ‘Leda and the Swan’ by Carole A. Feuerman, which was acquired by the hotel. Museum-style lighting contrasted with dark surrounding walls highlights this special piece while emphasizing it as a gallery space.
Guest suites feature luxurious textures and materials in a neutral palette, such as herringbone wood floors, hand tufted wool rugs, leather dining chairs and a sleek coffee table with sculptural legs. The all-suite rooms provide guests the sense of being in a private pied-a-terre, consisting of separate living and sleeping spaces. The hotel also features a collection of four apartment-style suites, six sky suites, one atrium suite and one split-level penthouse suite.
