Aman New York is set to welcome guests from August 2, 2022. Aman transformed the iconic Crown Building in Manhattan into the 83-suite hotel and its 22 branded residences. Set on the corner of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, the Crown Building was built in 1921 by Warren & Wetmore, architects of some of the city’s most influential buildings, including Grand Central Station and the Helmsley Building.
On entering Aman New York, guests ascend to the double-height, 14th-floor lobby with spaces for socializing. Restaurants include Arva, the Italian restaurant, and Nama, Aman’s interpretation of Japan’s washoku dining tradition, alongside a Wine Library, all linked by a wraparound garden terrace. The nearly 7,000-square-foot outdoor space also has reflective pools and fire pits. The exclusive Jazz Club offers live performances.
The Aman Spa covers three stories (24,800 square feet) and offers a spectrum of wellness-enhancing facilities, centered by a 65-foot indoor swimming pool flanked by fire pits and daybeds. Two vast Spa Houses comprise double treatment rooms, Banya and Hammam rooms, and private outdoor terraces with hot and cold plunge pools, daybeds and fireplaces. The Spa Houses are available for private use.
Inside the rooms, the hotel’s 83 suites offer a fireplace, while the oversized bathrooms have oval soaking bathtubs, marble rain showers and double vanities. On the building’s 11th and 12th floors, 11 Grand Suites can be configured with additional bedrooms to create family-sized spaces, while two Aman Suites offer views of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, living and dining areas with tables for six, kitchenettes with counter seating and large walk-in wardrobes. Each suite also has a large-scale mural by Japanese artist Ryoko Adachi and inspired by the 15th-century masterpiece “Pine Trees” (“Shōrin-zu byōbu”) by Hasegawa Tōhaku. One of Japan’s most celebrated works, “Pine Trees” was designated as a national treasure in 1952. Adachi’s recreation of the piece captures its pre-Edo influence, and is a homage to Tōhaku, printed on rice paper and spanning the walls as a captivating focal point.
Aman New York joins Amangani in Wyoming and Amangiri in Utah as the brand’s third destination in the U.S. The trio will be accompanied by Aman Miami in 2024. Aman New York hotel reservations open on July 25, with stays commencing on August 2, 2022.
