Located on 57th Street between Park and Madison Avenues smack in the middle of Midtown, one of this luxury hotel’s main draws is its proximity to so many other neighborhoods - the great shopping along Fifth Avenue and the Upper East Side, the new fleet of restaurants on Columbus Circle and the theaters and performance centers of Lincoln Center, and, of course, Central Park.
Seamlessly luxurious these rooms start at 600 square feet, the city's largest average. Expect beautiful Deco interiors that are still understated. Since the hotel is understandably famous for its views (especially from the 40th floor and above), which face either the glittering skyline to the south or over the top of the park, ask for a view when you book. Some extras like free WiFi should be included at this price.
You can almost get lost in this lobby with the different doors, the huge ground floor bar, the reception that's tucked away from the fray but just ask a uniformed doorman to help you find your way.
Eating and drinking
The Grill Room is a power spot for breakfast and lunch. You never know which celeb or CEO you might be seated next to. Don't miss the lemon ricotta pancakes for breakfast and expect to pay the price to dine with New York's movers and shakers.
A nice day spa and gym. I wish this place had a rooftop pool, now that would be a view.
Amazing amazing amazing. The service here is outstanding: due to the high celebrity and power broker quotient the concierges really can fulfill almost every request. They have great guest profiles that they keep very up to date and review before your check in.
