Luxury Attaché takes a seat in the comfiest chair at the coolest hotel lobbies in New York City.
1 the Quin Hotel
The Quin’s lobby, also referred to as the “City Stage,” subtly reflects the building’s rich artistic history. The lobby is punctuated with striking red backsplash behind the front desk, reminiscent of Carnegie Hall’s rich, red velvet curtains and opera box-like windows overlooking the activity below. Leather-wrapped columns soar to ceilings accentuated with hammered metal plates that reflect the teeming activity below. Rich finishes play off one another, with faux bois paneling, couture curtains and chandeliers of hand-blown glass. The Quin’s Gallery, which houses the Attaché desk and the Bergdorf Goodman-curated vitrine, is encased in a neutral, crocodile-like pattern created from pearl and marble plaster.

Consider WestHouse your home away from home. This brand new luxury lifestyle hotel is opening very soon. The WestHouse Attaché, (their exclusive concierge powered by Luxury Attaché,) gave us a sneak peek into the incredible hotel den. Upon entering WestHouse, residents (they don’t call them guests) are enveloped by a modern yet musky essence; this scent is called “Guests Only.” It is an exclusive scent created over months of research and development by the masters of experiential scents, 12.29. The WestHouse den makes residents feel right at home with features such as a cozy fireplace, Barista-crafted coffees and international culinary offerings throughout the day. It’s the perfect setting to unwind after a long day at the office, or better yet, a long day of shopping.

3 Crosby Street Hotel
Famed London hoteliers Tim and Kit Kemp have truly outdone themselves with the design of the Crosby Street Hotel lobby. Tucked between Prince and Spring Streets, the 11-story construction features one of SoHo’s most distinct hotel lobbies; (street shoppers and passer by’s can even have a glance at what looks like a curated art space through the hotel’s enormous glass windows and doors.) A master of colors, stripes and textures, Kemp’s lobbies feature original art, custom furniture and impeccable antiques. A sculpture of a giant head adorned with alphabet letters greets guests at the edge of the foyer, along with excess dog-sculptures, which give way to the curation of master interior designer Kit Kemp. Besides its museum-worthy presence, the hotel also offers a leafy courtyard garden, ground-floor bar and restaurant and several private event spaces.

4 The Greenwich Hotel
Take a peek into Robert De Niro’s landmark Tribeca hotel, and you will find one of the coziest and breathtaking lobbies that New York City has to offer. The modern yet rustic design, with Japanese, Tibetan and Moroccan influences does not fall short of what is expected from a celebrity sponsorship; the building was made from handmade bricks and reclaimed wood and its carefully curated furniture collection was drawn from antique stores around the world. All the way down to the floor, (which is constructed from hand-molded Terracotta and marble tiles), this hotel lobby exudes a chicness only comparable with New York City elite. Make sure to check out the vine-covered courtyard, that is if you are staying at this luxurious hotel; it is reserved for the eyes of guests only.

5 Mandarin Oriental
Talk about a room with a view. The Mandarin Oriental lobby lounge greets guests with floor-to-ceiling windows and a panoramic view of Central Park and Manhattan’s glorious skyline. The lobby lounge is the perfect setting for a light lunch after a day at the spa or for cocktails before seeing the ballet at Lincoln Center. Be sure to check out the “Evening Sessions” each Thursday night from 7p.m. to 9p.m. to enjoy a weekly jazz performance by The Juilliard School’s young artists.
