Entering a suite or penthouse in one of Manhattan’s luxury hotels makes me feel both sublimely cocooned from the crush and clamor of the streets and as though the entire world is at my feet. The indulgent amenities, premium pampering and sumptuous décor create a powerful elevation in mood that is often further enhanced by eye-popping views of the city and beyond that stretch for miles.
In a city where space is at a premium, Manhattan hotels make the most of it, especially when it comes to suites and penthouses, those often booked by celebrities, politicos and CEOs. Over-the-top creature comfort is the name of the game, from a private backyard at Crosby Street Hotel and a rooftop terrace at Roxy Hotel TriBeCa, to a two-story fireplace at The Royalton Park Avenue Hotel.
These perks pair nicely with the hotels’ exciting amenities. Whether they be sizzling hot celebrity chef restaurants, like Jonathan Waxman’s Jams restaurant at 1 Hotel Central Park, or in-house theaters showing cutting-edge films, like the screening room at the Roxy Hotel TriBeCa, you’ll find a way to treat yourself at these 10 luxury hotels in NYC.
