Guest Rooms

Many of our spacious accommodations feature Central Park and Manhattan views to accentuate your stay. The hotel's new design evokes a strong historical rooting but with a fresh twist. A bold but neutral color palette plays to fashion's own rebirth of the period. Carpet patterns are geometric, based on art déco but simplified in modern charcoal and cream colors. Guest rooms and suites also feature the latest in fine amenities, including Smart TVs with streaming capabilities for Netflix, You Tube and more.


Book your stay in one of our suites to enjoy the classic allure of a New York penthouse, with modern riffs on the lush tufted upholstery and animal-print pillows that were a staple of fine Art Deco-era homes. Discerning guests who enjoy a gracious mingling of past and present will appreciate every detail of their surroundings and every moment of their stay.
