A visit uptown.
Me (+ some friends to visit).
Grand penthouse living room overlooking Central Park.
Amazing floor to ceiling marble bathroom, huge bath tub and double shower (also with Central Park views).
Super comfy king-size bedroom.
View from the 28th floor down on to the street.
Coffee table book - The Complete Cartoons of the New Yorker.
Penthouse living / dining room with amazing sofa cushions, many lamps, brass light fittings and red roses.
Detail – woven wood lampshade.
Me in the grand marble bathroom.
The Rooftop bar, before it gets busy, complete with incredible views.
Looking into Kingside, the hotel’s ground floor restaurant.
A relaxation pool on the cellar level, warm as a bathtub.
The Viceroy’s dark façade – looking up from street level.

The Roof bar.
The marble bathroom in the penthouse.
The ground floor library in the foyer.

The hallways don’t feel quite right here...

Luxury boutique hotel.
Elegant uptown luxury.
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.
A mixed bag of popular contemporary tunes.

Yes, a small downstairs gym and an indoor relaxation pool.
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.
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.
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.
Yes, it’s free.
Pricey high-end luxury.
