It’s not only spiralling towers and quaint West Village that require jaw-dropping prices in NY. See this 15 of the Most Deluxe Hotel Suites in New York City.
The city’s very best hotel suites are similarly huge in cost and cater to guests who expect everything from unbeatable views of Central Park atop private terraces to personal car service and private elevators.
Traversing across 12,000 square feet (including 2,500 square feet of outdoor rooftop terrace space that overlook Central Park and the Met Museum), the Mark Hotel unveiled its Penthouse Suite in September at a whopping $75,000 per night. The Upper East Side property is a neighborhood icon and, fittingly, chose master interior designer and architect Jacques Grange to perceive every aspect of the penthouse, which occupies the top two floors of the hotel and includes 5 bedrooms, 4 fireplaces and 6 baths—not to mention a private elevator, a living room with 26-foot-high ceilings, a dining room that seats 26, and a library.
Seasons New York’s most expensive suite, in collaboration with architect and designer Peter Marino. Its 4,300 square feet occupies the entire top floor of the hotel, which is accessed by a private elevator only for guests of the suite. Among the countless items that accessorise the penthouse are Qing dynasty antiques, a Bosendorfer grand piano, and either a Maybach or a Rolls-Royce (guest’s choice) for chauffeured drives around town.
The Mandarin Oriental, New York’s most opulent suite, is sat on the 50th floor of the Time Warner Center, anchoring Columbus Circle and the south-west corner of Central Park. This 3,300-square-foot, three-bedroom space features works by artists like Katherine Mann and Andrew Levitas, a dining room with a Swarovski crystal wall installation, and a kitchen worthy of a Michelin-starred chef. Unlike other rooms in the hotel, guests here have access to an extensive record collection by New York’s Academy Records—all while taking in panoramic views of the city skyline and Central Park.
Having recently experienced a multimillion-dollar renovation, the Presidential Suite at this midtown classic now feels like the grandest apartment in Manhattan, complete with 24-hour butler service, Waterford crystal chandeliers, crown mouldings, and floor-to-ceiling windows that look out on Fifth Avenue and Central Park. Bonus: The legendary King Cole Bar is just downstairs for a nightcap.
The views of Central Park from the Pierre’s Tata Suite almost make it feel like it’s your own garden. The two-bedroom suite is a study in Upper East Side elegance with its gold, silver, and porcelain tones. If the 1,300-square-foot space is too small, it can be combined with the entire 39th floor, creating six bedrooms—which the hotel mentions is ideal for heads of state.
Midtown Manhattan’s luxury factor has lately shot up wildly, thanks in part to projects like Park Hyatt New York (situated in One57, a building with some of the city’s most expensive condos). Its Presidential Suite integrates what the hotel brought to the neighbourhood when it opened in 2014 along Billionaires’ Row, with its modern, minimal-yet-sophisticated decor imagined by Yabu Pushelberg. This suite’s residential feel is enhanced by a separate dining room, a butler’s kitchen, and a high-tech media system.
The six rooms that make up The Peninsula Suite span the 19th floor of this grand Fifth Avenue hotel, featuring lavishly toned wood accents, hand-stitched Savoir beds, plush hand-tufted carpets, and countless amenities, from complimentary airport transfer in the hotel’s BMW 7 Series to unlimited drinks made exactly to a guest’s preference. A grand piano sits in one corner of the Art Deco–inspired living room and the Italian silk curtains frame idyllic views of Fifth Avenue.
The Champagne Suite is housed in the Towers, an exclusive hotel-within-a-hotel for high rollers, located in the Lotte New York Palace (you might recognise the property as a shoot location for the television show Gossip Girl). The design firm HOK mixed modern and classic touches throughout the three floors, with colours inspired by various Champagne varietals. The room is available via private elevators just for guests of the Towers.
Delicate crystal barware and ornate chandeliers from the Baccarat brand define this hotel’s biggest suite. Still, The Baccarat Suite proves there’s more to this showy hotel (designed by the French duo Gilles & Boissier) than crystals. Francophiles will love the luxe touches like the La Mer bath products and a Ruinart Champagne–filled minibar.
The art-filled Empire Suite at the landmark Carlyle hotel is a duplex with an American and French Deco aesthetic, possessing a collection of works curated by the Met with pieces by Dines Carlsen and Louis Lozowick, among others. The hotel is most famous, however, for its connection to Ludwig Bemelmans, the artist behind the Madeline children’s books. His work fills the walls of Bemelmans Bar downstairs.
There’s an intimate, boutique hotel vibe to the Greenwich Hotel’s 88 rooms, but that doesn’t mean the Tribeca Penthouse takes any shortcuts. Designed by Belgian master Axel Vervoordt, it feels like a true pied-à-terre, with four fireplaces, three bedrooms, and a bi-level terrace that provides 4,000 square feet of outdoor space.
While the restaurant and bars on the lower levels of this midtown hotel are always lively, the Penthouse is an oasis of tranquillity, taking up the property’s top three floors. There’s a professional-grade kitchen, a Bowers & Wilkins surround sound system, and two outdoor terraces overlooking Manhattan’s skyline from midtown to downtown. The terraces easily accommodate 30 guests over 1,300 square feet, if you feel like throwing an outdoor garden party.
Light pours through the floor-to-ceiling windows of the Empire State View Residence, which comprises two bedrooms and a full kitchen with Miele appliances. Guests don’t have to leave the hotel (or compete with tourists) for views of the Empire State Building—there’s no better place in the city to see this iconic architectural marvel than from this suite.
Guests can experience luxurious Upper East Side living in the Surrey’s 2,127-square-foot Presidential Suite. Available with one or two bedrooms, the suite owns a spacious living room with a fireplace and baby grand piano, as well as a dining room bar and full kitchen. Guests have access to a private terrace and the hotel’s rooftop garden.
The most modern addition to the city’s collection of high-end hotels is the Four Seasons New York Downtown, situated in a Robert A.M. Stern building in lower Manhattan. The hotel’s most spectacular accommodation is the 2,400-square-foot Royal Suite, which occupies half of the 24th floor. The one-bedroom suite’s warm interiors are by design firm Yabu Pushelberg, and the space combines a dining room that can seat ten, a media room, and an office.
