The Tuscany, A St Giles Boutique Hotel’s Penthouse Gets a Facelift

Of course, working in a city with so many cool hotels I jump at the opportunity to check out a new or renovated property. I recently got the chance to see the latter in the form of The Tuscany, A St Giles Hotel’s newly renovated 17th floor Penthouse. The Midtown East hotel—a hop, skip and a jump from Grand Central Terminal—got a property-wide upgrade in 2012 and debuted the revamp of itspièce de résistance, the palatial penthouse, in late July. The renovation features the work of three award-winning design firms: AJC Design, dash design, and Gensler, with each bringing its own aesthetic to the 3,000-square-foot space.

The folks at AJC Design executed the Penthouse’s master bedroom, as well as the 1,200-square-foot outdoor wraparound terrace (affording unobstructed views of the Chrysler and Empire State buildings), with an urban take on old world Tuscany in mind—complete with colors and elements one would experience in the rural setting, including travertine stone, natural walnuts, Venetian plaster, rod-iron finishes and textural fabrics. Gensler took on the task of updating the living room, and the contemporary and stylish finished product includes a vaulted wood ceiling, large fireplace and cozy feel (provided by on-point material choices like corten steel, textured wood, natural stone and supple leather furniture). The Penthouse’s kitchen and bar area, conceptualized by dash design, is a mixture of modern and classic.

You know what they say, a picture is worth a thousand words—so check out the photo gallery below to see more of The Tuscany’s newly renovated Penthouse.
