ROOMS: 172 RATES: FROM $640* This is like that exclusive New York club everyone wants to be a member of. Communal spaces include The Den, a wood-panelled oasis of leather sofas, antique furnishings and hand-picked books, and The Terrace, a private rooftop bar and lounge with views over the Hudson River. In other words, it’s epic. Each room features marble-topped desks, leather chairs and Art Deco fittings. Deluxe amenities include in-room tablets, 400 thread-count sheets and, thanks to GHD straighteners and hair dryers, zero bad-hair days. For approx. $46 a day on top, ‘hotel residents’ (no ‘guests’ here), are treated to breakfast, afternoon tea and early-evening wine and canapés. And the best bit? Central Park, MOMA and Carnegie Hall are but a bagel toss away.
