New Hotel Alert: Viceroy New York

New Hotel Alert: Viceroy New York

Some hotels just stand out regardless of their surroundings—be it a bucolic pasture or a busy city street. A few years ago, I took a trip to Florida and got to check out Viceroy Miami, which definitely is the crown jewel of its trendy Brickell neighborhood. So of course, I knew the recently opened Viceroy New York would be a welcome addition to Midtown West.

A Look At The Lobby: Your journey begins with a stop in the Roman and Williams-designed double-height lobby, which evokes an Old New York feel—complete with a nautical-themed, Thomas Hart Benton-inspired mural (composed by Roman and Williams’ Stephen Alesch and painted by local studio Art Space NYC), brass accents, Paonazzo marble, a large bronze map of Manhattan with a red dot marking the hotel, and beige-colored sofas. The back of the lobby features The Library—an intimate space full of books about NYC (think everything from fashion and architecture to history and must-see attractions).

The Rooms: The rooms all boast floor-to-ceiling windows—offering expansive views of the surrounding Manhattan cityscape. The comfortable accommodations give off a luxe vibe with gorgeous caramel-hued chaise lounges, large wooden closets, vintage wallpaper patterns, and exquisite marble bathrooms with mirrors modeled after a ship’s telescope. Modern amenities include Beats by Dr. Dre™ Beatbox Portable™ audio sound system and Smart Phone with Viceroy Connect app. 

The Restaurant: The sprawling eatery Kingside, a partnership between Gerber Group and Chef Marc Murphy, is Viceroy New York’s street-level restaurant and bar and a great place to grab delectable New American fare and creative cocktails. The rooftop lounge is also a nice place to enjoy a drink and take in the views now that the weather is finally warming up.

The hotel also features a Technogym Fitness Center and Indoor PlungePool. Rates start from $559 a night. For more on the hotel, click here.
