Important Bits

  • Type

    Luxury boutique hotel.

  • Vibe

    Elegant uptown luxury.

  • Location

    Centrally located in midtown, just below Central Park and close to galleries like MoMA, The Met and The Guggenheim. A bit of a deadzone for great restaurants and a real NY vibe, but close to a train station to get around.

  • Rooms

    240

  • Music

    A mixed bag of popular contemporary tunes.

  • Year Opened

    2013

  • Designed By

    Roman and Williams

  • Pool/Gym

    Yes, a small downstairs gym and an indoor relaxation pool.

  • Restaurant

    Downstairs on street level is a large all-day eatery called Kingside, serving breakfast through to dinner with a bar. They also do the room service from here.

  • Bar

    You can drink downstairs at the bar at Kingside or at The Roof, the rooftop bar on the 29th floor overlooking Central Park. There is also bar food available on the roof.

  • Minibar

    The in-room bar offering is very impressive here, but as far as snacks go…it’s pretty standard with chips, sweets and nut bars.

  • Wifi

    Yes, it’s free.

  • Children

    Children welcome.

  • Price

    Pricey high-end luxury.
