This luxury five-star hotel is set in an iconic 41-story clock tower skyscraper built in 1909 originally as the headquarters for the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. It’s located on the fringes of downtown Manhattan in the Flatiron District, across the street from Madison Square Park and an 11-minute walk from the Empire State Building. It’s a 30-minute cab ride from either JFK or La Guardia airport.
The hotel offers sophisticated rooms that boast a sleek contemporary décor that blends muted shades and elegant furnishings. They feature free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, minibars and rainfall showers. Studios have entrance foyers, and expansive suites include vaulted ceilings and living areas. Penthouse suites add kitchens, plus separate living and dining areas. Most quarters offer park, city and/or Empire State Building views.
You’re well placed to discover Manhattan’s sights during a stay at the New York Edition, including the iconic Flatiron Building just across the street. From here, it’s an easy walk to downtown Manhattan where you can discover the bohemian streets of Greenwich Village and Chelsea. If you prefer, you could jump on the subway from the Union Square station right by the hotel, to explore uptown.
The Clocktower Restaurant on the second floor of the hotel serves updated classics and contemporary British fare amid traditionally elegant surroundings. It’s open for breakfast, weekend brunch, lunch and dinner with meals served in three rooms each with its own unique theme. Head to the Lobby Bar overlooking Madison Square Park for high tea or the plush Gold Bar, with its mahogany walls and original herringbone floors, for a craft cocktail.
