Opened in February 2017 by the founders of Firmdale Hotels, The Whitby Hotel is already receiving rave reviews as one of the most unique luxury hotels in New York City, situated in the heart of upper midtown Manhattan on West 56th Street at 5th Avenue.
A celebration of contemporary art and design, art lovers will fall completely in love with this chic Manhattan hideaway. Each of the guestrooms are individually designed in the signature style of owner Kit Kemp in mismatched prints and bold colours, giving the hotel an incredibly unique personality and flair, and a stay at the hotel feels like an experience in itself.
The hotel’s location is second to none; you are just two blocks from Central Park and on the doorstep of some of New York’s leading restaurants, galleries and museums, including the fabulous MoMA, where for something really special, we can arrange after hours private visits with the gallery’s curator – an amazing experience for art lovers. There are endless opportunities for exploring and The Whitby is the perfect base; catching a show on Broadway is also a must, and The Whitby Hotel is close to some of Manhattan’s best shops including the wonderful Barney’s and Saks Fifth Avenue.
But for some downtime amidst the hustle and bustle of the busy city streets, there’s nowhere better to snuggle up in a quiet corner than the atmospheric book-lined Drawing Room, or enjoy afternoon tea with a New York twist in the light and airy Orangery – city break bliss.
