Conrad Hotels & Resorts opens its second property in New York

Hilton’s global luxury hotel brand announces the grand opening of its 54 floor, 562 suite Conrad New York Midtown following a complete renovation

This is the brand’s second New York City property and is located at the former site of The London NYC. Guest suites more closely resemble a metropolitan pied-a-terre than a traditional NYC hotel room; design elements, programming and curation of the hotel are innately residential, inviting guests to experience what it would feel like to live in Manhattan. 

Design firm Stonehill Taylor designed the hotel as an expression of calm elegance, grand, lavish and comfortable. A jewel-tone color palette, custom designed furniture, herringbone wood floors, hand-tufted wool rugs and Carrera marble bathrooms comprise generous floor plans, ranging from 500ft² one bedroom suites to a 3,000ft², two-story penthouse. 

The 13 premium suites provide guests with a distinct style of living; the 3,000ft² penthouse on 54 is a two story, two-bedroom suite. The first floor entertaining and living area has wrap around views of Central Park and Manhattan; a fireplace, an original Eames chair,  and a custom designed bold red sofa inspired by nearby and soon-to-reopen Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). A floating staircase leads to two spacious master bedrooms with luxurious king beds, walk-in closets and marble-clad bathrooms with deep soaking tubs, all boasting views of the surrounding city.

The 1,200ft² one-bedroom Atrium Suite is perched 43 stories high with a portion of the living area housed within a greenhouse like glass enclosure, revealing panoramic views of Manhattan. Pale pink, dark green, blue and grey toned hues play upon the passing of seasons of Central Park visible below. 

Five apartment suites ranging from 1,400 to 1,700ft² offer separate dining rooms, spacious living rooms and a study with artful books. One apartment suite offers a full kitchen. 

Six 900ft² sky suites reside on the top floors of Conrad New York Midtown and are designed with open layouts that incorporate a study, dining and living rooms as well as king sized bedrooms. 

The Conrad New York Midtown has a contemporary design that when paired with personalized, intuitive service will truly inspire the globally connected traveler.

The hotel has integrated state-of-the-art technology to create a fully wired junket floor with four television shooting suites, green room and control room. Conrad New York Midtown is home to an extensive art collection featuring references to Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, street photography, jazz improvisation and pulling inspiration from art institutions such as Broadway theater, MoMA, the Guggenheim and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in new guises throughout the hotel. 

Curated by boutique art consultancy VISTO, Conrad New York Midtown’s collection is inspired by NYC’s art, culture and nearby world class museums. Pivotal art movements are represented and reinterpreted in the collection, including the crown jewel of the portfolio anchored in the center of the hotel’s lobby, Leda and the Swan. A life like sculpture by renowned hyperrealist contemporary artist Carole A. Feuerman. This permanent installation serves as the hallmark of the hotel’s broad collection which features 37 artists and includes an original Henri Matisse lithograph, two original Andy Warhol silkscreens and two limited edition photographs by Amy Judd. 

Offset from the hotel’s lobby is Dabble, a signature dining destination offering light fare and classic cocktails. Dabble’s bar program showcases expertly prepared cocktails, including classic staples and avant-garde craft offerings. Adjacent to Dabble, guests will find Plume, the hotel’s private dining room and event space accommodating up to 100 guests for a cocktail style reception and 75 for a seated dinner. These offerings join the hotel’s six additional private meeting and event spaces throughout the property.
