New York is famously the city that never sleeps, but if there’s any hotel that might tempt you to get a little shuteye it’s the Viceroy New York.
Situated in Midtown on West 57th, so within easy reach of both hipster downtown and glamorous uptown, the Viceroy has 240 rooms (including 43 suites), some with Central Park views, spread across 29 storeys.
The supremely stylish guestrooms make elegant use of metal, wood and leather, with floor to ceiling windows and well-appointed bathrooms. Every room also features individual little design details such as vintage wallpaper in the wardrobes (we love a detail). The terrace suites also have a balcony or terrace.
On the subject of terraces the one at Roof rooftop bar on the 29th floor has amazing views out across the city and Central Park. Inside, the look is luxury yacht, with brass fittings, walnut and leather sofas and seacape photography from Dalton, and the drink to order is a perfectly mixed Monkey Business (scotch, aperol, contreau and fresh lemon juice) cocktail or one of a selection of local craft beers. Drinks are also served in the Library.
Why we love it
Marc Murphy, the chef behind the perennially popular Landmarc in TriBeCa, has created Kingside, the Viceroy New York's lobby restaurant looking out on to 57th Street and serving modern American with a nod to French and Italian classics. In other words, a pretty good combo.
