When this traditional hotel oozing old school charm opened in 1927 it was in the world's largest apartment building, with no fewer than 38 floors. Boasting a coveted Fifth Avenue address near Central Park, each corner of the hotel underlines history and old world character. There are a number of private apartments here, whose residents share the hotel's facilities. It has a great restaurant, fashioned after Harry's Bar in Venice (hotel guests receive a discount), and there's a gym, barbers and hair salon. Guest rooms and suites are spacious and classically decorated and furnished, adorned with antique furniture. The elegant lobby boasts splendid Renaissance-style frescoes, and the white-gloved lift attendants remind you you're staying somewhere particularly grand.



The hotel's a stone's throw from Central Park.

A good central location in midtown Manhattan, you're a 10-minute walk from the Museum of Modern Art and Times Square.
By plane: flights from London, Manchester or Edinburgh to New York take 7 hours. It's 50-minutes' drive from JFK airport. Parking costs $85 per day.

Style & Character

The hotel attracts generally an older clientele - both business people and leisure travellers stay here - and there's a fair number of residents. The walnut-lined lifts, complete with white-gloved attendants, make you feel you're in a 1940s B movie. They come from the Vanderbilt mansion on Fifth Avenue that was demolished during construction of the hotel.
