Toronto-slash-New-York-based design firm Yabu Pushelberg bring on the spins with the design of The New York EDITION's stunning spiral staircase. However, those breathtaking wood steps are just the beginning. Located in the heart of midtown New York’s Flatiron District, steps from Madison Square Park, the luxury hotel seamlessly blends the integrity and character of a prestigious landmark building with a simple, sophisticated design sensibility. Originally built in 1909 as the headquarters for The Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, the historic 41-story clock tower offers jaw-dropping 360-degree views and is an iconic landmark against the city skyline.
The hotel’s 273 stylish guest rooms, suites and penthouses feature oak floors and dark oak wood-paneled foyers that create a cozy residential entrance combined with a modern feel. Oversized windows magically frame city views, including a close-up of Madison Square Park, the iconic Empire State Building and the breathtaking New York City skyline.
With three places to drink and be merry, the hotel does not settle on anything less than creating an stylish and celebratory ambiance. The Clocktower is located on the second floor, the hotel’s gastronomic gem is under the direction of Executive Chef Jason Atherton and offers a restaurant menu of updated classics and contemporary British fare. Guests can enjoy all-day dining in a series of three rooms, each with its own unique theme, before capping off the meal in the billiards room or at the aptly named Gold Bar. Speaking of Gold Bar. With mahogany walls, carved plaster ceilings, original herringbone floors and hundreds of pieces of photography hung in gilt frames, there is no better place for a pre or post-dinner cocktail than the Gold Bar. Guests can sip craft cocktails under the 3-foot fiberglass globe chandelier designed by Eric Schmitt, which is suspended over the intimate horseshoe shaped bar made entirely of 24k gold leaf. Now, it's time to go get the spins!
