Andaz 5th Avenue is looking to help guests feel a part of New York's book publishing scene through a new partnership that will have the hotel offering an an exclusive collection of Amazon Publishing books in all of its 47 suites.
The collection, which launches this fall, will be curated by Amazon Publishing and will aim to highlight the hotel's connection to New York City. The book selection will rotate each month, and each book will include a bookmark explaining the program and the inspiration behind choosing each individual book. Suite guests of Andaz 5th Avenue can enjoy the books while staying at the property and can even take them home.
Andaz 5th Avenue’s featured book list includes J.D. Salinger: The Escape Artist by Thomas Beller (September), I Only Read it for the Cartoons by Richard Gehr (October), White Tiger on Snow Mountain by David Gordon (November) and Modern Man by Anthony Flint (December).
The suite designs, by Toni Chi, are likewise inspired by the neighborhood, with light fixtures reminiscent of pre-war subway lanterns and steel-blue wall colors and black poplar shutter doors reminiscent of a New York City loft apartment.
