Fusing the elegance of midtown Park Avenue, with the grit and funk of downtown New York, the Royalton Hotel has certainly delivered with the Royalton Park Avenue. With the nearest subway (28th St.) being just a block away, this is the perfect base from which to explore NYC.
An impressive 249 contemporary rooms and suites sit within the hotel. All rooms and suites are brimming with tech, including interactive LCD TV's, and Wilkins Zeppelin Mini iPod docking stations. Usually space is a luxury in New York, but many of the rooms here feature lofty ceilings and Juliet balconies, for your own oasis in the city. Some of the suites even include landscaped terraces, and kitchenettes, or a full size foosball table.
Indulge in the delicious Italian menu at Ristorante Asellina, where homemade pasta sits alongside award-winning desserts, or settle for some gourmet bar snacks at The Windsor such as Truffle Grilled Cheese to accompany your choice of in-house cocktail.
It's easy to lose yourself street level in New York, but thankfully guests at the Royalton Park Avenue can head up to the rooftop, on the 20th floor for skyline views and an up close look at the Empire State building. Here you'll find the sundeck and heated outdoor pool, complete with 1940's pin-up mosaic, alongside a main bar with floor to ceiling windows and jaw dropping views.
The Café at the rooftop takes advantage of the specialist skills of the Panther Coffee brand, to offer guests some of the world finest coffee blends, or get your fill of vitamins at the Juice Press, with its collection of cold pressed juices, smoothies and cocktails (go on, we won't tell). Guests can head to the Exhale Mind & Body Spa to enjoy a range of healing therapies, or pamper and prepare for a night out at the Cutler Salon.
If the prime location and chic decor aren't enough, those lovely folk at Royalton are also Kid and Pet friendly, offering a range of amenities and thoughtful initiatives to make your stay as stress free as possible.
