“We travel not to escape life, but for life to escape us.” Amidst the hustle and bustle of New York City are these peaceful sanctuaries you might know as hotel suites. There is no shortage of the luxurious abodes, so we have selected the five sweetest ones in the city.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all have a penthouse view of Fifth Avenue? It most certainly is nice, and is now possible with the ‘Fifth Avenue Suite’ at the timeless Omni Berkshire Hotel. Enter the hotel and escape the city. From the moment you step inside you are surrounded by classic charm in the most luxurious way. Their Fifth Avenue Suite however, has to be the best part of it all. The balcony practically spans a whole block, and the view of the stunning St. Thomas Church is unparalleled. For such a large suite, you wouldn’t imagine the homey vibes found here. You’ll feel right at home for your sweet city escape at the Omni Berkshire.
This experience might be the closest you’ll ever get to Aladdin’s magic carpet ride. Guests who book the 17th floor penthouse-suite of the AKA Central Park, have the option of moving the bed onto the terrace for a night under the stars. This may not sound luxurious, but you’d be very wrong. A night on the outdoor terrace includes a wood-burning fireplace, a bottle of Champagne or vodka, chocolate-covered strawberries and a telescope for romantic stargazing. It’s a one-off unique experience worth giving a shot.
2,500 sq ft of pure bliss exists at the one and only Soho Grand Hotel. With 1,300 sq ft of beautifully curated interiors and 1,200 sq ft of expansive outdoor terraces you will have 0 reasons to leave. Ever. The suite features two bedrooms, two separate living room for entertaining or lounging, a full-service wet bar and custom finishing commissioned by Studio Sofield. The penthouse keeps it modern whilst paying tribute to SoHo’s 1970s artist lofts.
Floor-to-ceiling windows in a 46th floor penthouse at the Trump Soho is literally the definition of winning. Panoramic views of the city from the inside of a spacious suite equipped with marble bathrooms, rich leather Fendi Casa headboards and floating soaking tubs. No big deal. Oh, and when we say panoramic views we mean you could be sipping Champagne and staring at the Hudson River, midtown Manhattan, the Empire State Building, downtown or the East River bridges. All in all, it’s a pretty sweet suite.
The NoMad hotel needs no introduction. The luxury boutique hotel h as made a name for itself as one of the top destinations in all of Manhattan. It comes as no surprise that such a luxurious hotel would have a Suite Royale. The 1800 sq ft situation looks over the happening Flatiron district and Broadway. While everyone dodges foot traffic outdoors, you’ll enjoy a view from the tip with the who’s who of New York inside. It’s sleek and chic, with a one-of-a-kind suite.
