Lotte New York Palace has unveiled its Royal Suite Collection, consisting of eight unique suites ranging in size from a 2,500-square-foot, one-bedroom option to a 5,000-square-foot, three-floor penthouse. As part of the unveiling, Lotte New York Palace also introduced four newly renovated suites designed by ForrestPerkins; these include such amenities as Hästens mattresses and Peloton Bikes.
Accommodations in the collection consist of four three-floor penthouse suites, each with private elevators and rooftop terraces: Madison Avenue Penthouse, Park Avenue Penthouse, The Jewel Suite by Martin Katz and The Champagne Suite, in addition to The Hästens Ultimate Sleep Suite, The Empire Skyview Suite, The Manhattan Skyview Suite and the Imperial Suite.
The highlights of the unveiling are the hotel’s newest three-floor penthouse suites: Madison Avenue Penthouse and Park Avenue Penthouse. Each has an extensive living area with an overlook on the second level; the third floor of the suite offers a rooftop media room complete with working fireplace and an expansive outdoor terrace.
Additionally, the one-floor Skyview suites, including The Empire Skyview Suite and The Manhattan Skyview Suite, offer guests a spacious master bedroom with a master bath and walk-in closet in addition to a library, gym, entertainment room, living room, office, dining room and kitchen.
Each master suite and guestroom in the collection has a Hästens mattress. A standout of the Hästens partnership is The Hästens Ultimate Sleep Suite, which is the only suite in the world to house this iteration of the flagship Vividus bed (retailing for $200,000). The Vividus bed is made of all-natural, breathable materials (cotton, flax, horsehair, pine and wool), crafted by nine of the world’s most foremost bed artisans with meticulous attention to detail.
The two additional three-floor penthouse suites—The Champagne Suite and The Jewel Suite—are iconic to the hotel. The Champagne Suite’s interior has a Nouveau Nero marble floor leading to a double-story Grand Parlour surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows. The Champagne cave—the only one of its kind in New York City—provides a rustic experience for guests directly adjacent to the dining room, while the tasting lounge and outdoor terrace house a black glass fireplace and custom hot tub where guests can enjoy city views. The Jewel Suite opens with a two-story crystal chandelier and sculptural crystal “jewel boxes,” in addition to a private internal elevator accessing the suite’s second and third levels. The Grand Parlor has a grand piano with 15-foot windows. The terrace level has a wood-burning fireplace, while the exterior terrace has a manicured garden and green space with an elevated spa in a stone landscape.
Curated by DM Art, the newly renovated suites have a bespoke art collection that celebrates New York City with particular inspiration from nearby Central Park. The art collection is a mix of fine art prints, collage, paintings on canvas, photography, mixed media and multi-dimensional works.
All newly renovated suites in the Royal Suite Collection offer a fitness component, including Peloton bikes, treadmills and yoga mats in-room. Select three-floor penthouse suites include both a Peloton bike and treadmills in a private fitness room overlooking the Manhattan skyline.
The Royal Suite Collection is housed within The Towers, a separate, distinct aspect of Lotte New York Palace that occupies the top 14 floors. A hotel-within-a-hotel, The Towers has its own private reception area, complete with a dedicated Les Clefs d’Or concierge team exclusive to The Towers guests. Signature service elements for the suites in the collection include Maybach car service and complimentary packing and unpacking.
Lotte New York Palace has updated its cleaning protocols and training in adherence with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Hotel Association of New York. The hotel also recently launched a collaboration with medical and public health expert Dr. Robert Amler and new “A Room of Your Own” program, each of which add a level of comfort and reassurance to guests’ stay.
All suites in the Royal Suite Collection are available to rent for private receptions and special events with the help of in-house event specialist.
