If you’re looking for an excuse to visit the Big Apple, three new luxury hotels are giving Manhattan an injection of vitality. By Nick Walton
Sophisticated yet playful, the 349-room Stonehill Taylor-designed Moxy Chelsea opened in February and blends an exciting, botanically-inspired design with a touch of Italian romance at the heart of the city’s Flower District. Guest rooms have been designed by Yabu Pushelberg and are cosy and functional – our favourite has to be the double-height Mondo Suite with its oversized wet bar, full kitchen, and views of the Empire State Building through industrial-styled windows.
Park Terrace Hotel
Another newbie brings a touch of Downtown chic to Midtown. The Park Terrace Hotel features 226 guest rooms, each of which boasts views of the Empire State Building, Bryant Park or the New York Public Library through floor-to-ceiling windows. Another creation by Stonehill Taylor, the hotel’s guest spaces are bright, fresh and boast a slick, minimalist design persona. The hotel’s year-round terrace is the best place for leisurely breakfasts and evening cocktails by Gates Otsuji.
The Edition Times Square
The Edition Times Square opened in February on Seventh Ave and 47th Street, and boasts 452 guest rooms as well as its own 1,524sqm performance space, a 579sqm studio, and an expansive beer garden and event deck overlooking the iconic namesake square. Be sure to visit the chic rooftop cocktail bar and to book well ahead for corner suites that overlook the bustle of the Big Apple far below.
