Big news for New York City today: The Viceroy New York has been announced for the Columbus Circle area of Manhattan.
We hear the hotel will blend downtown trends with uptown chic, with a huge double-height lobby as a centerpiece and 241 guest rooms, many of which will have top views of Central Park.
When it opens its doors in September of this year, the Viceroy New York will be in one of the best locations in Manhattan: West 57th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues. “The New York market has been waiting for the Viceroy name for some time, and we have wanted to be there” said Bill Walshe, CEO of Viceroy Hotel Group. “Our first Viceroy branded hotel in the city has to be exceptional, and this development is quite simply perfect. This is a hotel that will stand apart from its competitors,” he added.
In discussing this decision, Ark's Chairman, Brad Reiss noted that "Our vision for this project was to deliver a luxury hospitality product in an iconic building, embodying the Golden Era of New York in an incomparable and irreplaceable location. We believe the Viceroy brand, which embodies innovative design and superior guest service, will bring a hotel experience highly desired in New York City."
The hotel will stretch up 29 stories, and will have a paramount rooftop food and beverage venue in addition to a signature restaurant located off the lobby and fronting 57th Street. We hear a major culinary partnership will be announced in the coming weeks "rivaling anything currently on offer in New York City." We can't wait to see it for ourselves!
