I recently had the pleasure of checking out the majestic New York Palace hotel. If you’re looking for luxury, spectacular views of the New York City skyline and lux decor, The New York Palace has a suite for you.
From every side of the suite, the iconic lights of the NYC skyline were shining brightly. From stuffed high back chairs to period inspired furniture, this luxury accommodating hotel suite features spacious bedrooms, plenty of spa-like bathrooms and a fully mirrored walk in closet (think Carrie’s from Sex in the City). Whether you’re planning a romantic second honeymoon, (babymoon!) a shower fit for the royal family or a girls’ getaway to remember, The New York Palace’s Tower Royal Suite will have you surrounded in impressive elegance.
- Perched high above Manhattan’s metropolitan bustle on the 45th floor, the palatial Royal Suite features 3,600 square feet of classic opulence and state of the art amenities. Rococo rooms revive French period décor, from the King Louis XV to the Napoleon eras, all furnished with luxurious silks and emblazoned with imperial golds. Brilliantly curated objects of art beautify your experience at every turn, while integrated design and technology details meet the highest standards of contemporary comfort and convenience.
- An Italian marble foyer welcomes you into this magnificent Manhattan property. A master bedroom and two guest chambers —one with a king bed, one with two doubles—provides plush sleeping arrangements with touch-screen controlled temperature and privacy settings for your comfort. French doors provide free-flowing movement between a double-size living room, full pantry and formal twelve-seat dining room, making entertaining an extraordinarily elegant affair. A drawing room decorated with gold leaf and cranberry silk recalls the grand halls of Versailles.
Deeper inside, uniquely appointed his and hers dressing rooms flank the grand master bedroom of the New York Palace’s most impressive suite. Hers features an oversized soaking tub offset by silk drapes and Grecian columns; his has an antique barber chair perfect for a gentleman’s shave. Thoughtfully cordoned guest chambers, each with its own full bath, ensure complete privacy for your guests. Every moment of your stay in the Royal Suite is an extraordinary delight.
- 3,600 square feet; 4 beds; Sleeps up to 8 guests
- Drawing Room with two seating area; full pantry with dining nook; 3.5 bathrooms
Details on The New York Palace’s THE TOWERS:
- The Towers is a separate and distinct part of The New York Palace, occupying the hotel’s top 14 floors. With a private reception area, accessible from the main lobby, the Towers come complete with a dedicated Les Clefs d’Or concierge team, exclusively for The Towers guests. Elevators transport guests to floors 41 through 53, which house luxurious accommodations with spectacular skyline views
- Metropolitan Suite: The Metropolitan Suite, a 2 bedroom, 2-1/2 bath suite renovation, was originally styled a chilly white with austere finishes. Through the layering of art, accessories, color and texture, BBG-BBGM created a living art gallery in the sky. Each room was inspired by the urban fabric of New York City; the living room using yellow and blue accent colors which are derived from streaming taxi’s below and a serene sky above; the master suite referencing the city’s night views; and the second bedroom includes butterflies flying toward the window amidst a black and white photo collection of iconic New York images. Eclectic furniture is introduced throughout the suite and is layered with additional artwork, color and texture to create a space that feels like a living art gallery.
- The Towers’ Lobby: The private entranceway to The Towers lobby will expand in size and boast stylish upgrades, such as art deco screens and warm lighting. Upon entering the reception area, guests are warmly greeted by The Towers’ staff into a room of quiet elegance surrounded by richly appointed materials. The walls of the entranceway will feature silk and wood grain paneling. Elements of the lobby design will also harken back to the Villard Mansion design, with classical 19th century patterns echoing through the design of the rich brown carpeting and ceiling.
- The Towers’ Rooms & Suites: From the luxe new lighting touches to the eclectic mix of materials and furniture, The Towers’ updated rooms and suites will invoke a decidedly ‘home away from home’ feel for its sophisticated clientele. A soft, subdued color palette places the main emphasis on one of the best features of The Towers – the breathtaking city views from the suites’ windows. Pops of color will also come from the mixed media artwork that adorn the walls, selected by art advisor Nancy Sweeney. Strong geometric elements punctuate the furniture, carpet, and textiles in the renovated rooms.
- The New York Palace’s new restaurant partner is Washington-based French Chef Michel Richard. Richard will contribute two new F&B spaces – Villard Michel Richard and Pomme Palais. This partnership marks Chef Richard’s New York debut.
- Villard Michel Richard: Venue will feature two dining rooms; one will be a 46-seat, gastronomic, prix-fixe dinner-only establishment in one of the landmark spaces that was previously inhabited by Gilt, and the other room will be a 100-seat, bistro-style destination and will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The name is a tip of the hat to Henry Villard, the 19th century financier whose mansion is part of the hotel.
- Pomme Palais: A pastry shop with café seating. The name is a play on the NYC’s nickname “Big Apple.” The venue is a grab-and-go destination selling desserts and sandwiches.
- Additional designers of the renovation include Jeffrey Beers International and Champalimaud. Please note that aspects of these designers’ roles are still confidential.
- Jeffrey Beers International: Jeffrey Beers International designed Villard Michel Richard as a contemporary showcase for the famed chef’s creative cuisine. The inspired design honors the Villard Mansion’s landmark interiors while infusing the space with modern energy and playfulness. In addition, Jeffrey Beers also designed Pomme Palais, a jewel-box of a pastry shop. Both restaurants are located in New York City at The New York Palace.
- Champalimaud: Responsible for the redesign of The New York Palace’s lobby, as well as a few additional public spaces.
