Read more about this Hotel
Rooms fit for royalty (not the dark and dingy ones you usually find on city breaks), a super-chilled spa and restaurants that'll have you drooling just from the menu - this place has the Lotte. And when you're not sipping champers or starting your day with some lemon mascarpone pancakes (it really puts our English breakfast to shame), you'll have the best of the city right at your fingertips.
Times Square - just a 13-minute walk away (or 10, if you get a wriggle on)
Central Park - a 12-minute walk away - and you're near the zoo end, which is totally our favourite end
Empire State Building - a 20-minute walk away
Just over 45 minutes away from JFK Airport, by car
The hotel is decked out with swanky Palace Rooms, Tower Rooms and Suites so fancy, they're almost too good to leave. Almost.
Standard amenities in each room include:
High-speed Wi-Fi (and you're gonna need it, with all those snaps you'll be sharing!)
Flat-screen TV with premium channels
24-hour dry cleaning and laundry services
Complimentary New York Times on weekdays, so you can stay up-to-date on current events like a true New Yorker
Tower Rooms also come with nightly turndown service, private check-in, complimentary shoe-shining and butler service
Suites are flippin' massive, with decked-out living areas and huge windows overlooking the skyline
Food & Drink
Villard Restaurant - the iconic breakfast room, so you can keep it simple with some cereal or Greek yoghurt, or go all-out with some shakshouka or brioche French toast - just be sure to book, because this place is popular!
Gold Room - this place is pure gold - ha, sorry. But it is the place to be for cocktails and fancy sharing plates. You know the ones where you don't know what you're eating but it tastes good anyway? Those ones.
Pomme Palais - perfect for breakfasts, light lunches and desserts, with favourites including the breakfast burrito with Pepper Jack cheese, the Turkey BLT and the New York cheesecake, of course.
Rarities - you'll feel all refined at this vintage bar, stacked with champagne and aged wines
Room service - don't fancy leaving your room? Well, we've seen them, and we don't blame you. Thankfully, you can order breakfast, dinner or dessert straight to your door
Sports & Entertainment
The first ila Spa in America - take your pick from a menu of stress-relieving treatments made with organic farm-grown ingredients. You can pamper yourself silly with a massage or facial, or use the yoga studio to bend yourself into a human pretzel. You're in New York, after all...
State-of-the-art fitness centre - if all those steps around the city aren't quite cutting it, you can hit the gym for a sesh, with free weights, strength equipment, Peleton bikes and boot camp classes on offer
Explore the city - duh! You're in the heart of it all - the world is your oyster. Or apple.
