Art aficionados and stylish travellers will love The Whitby Hotel by Firmadale Hotels in Midtown Manhattan. Its location on West 56th Street at 5th Avenue provides easy access to galleries, museums, Broadway and international designer shops, while the hotel itself resembles a gallery with a showcase of contemporary artworks and an innovative blend of colours, patterns and textures.
Enjoy modern comfort with a luxurious finish with any of the 86 English-style guest rooms, which come with a king-size bed, a granite bathroom with walk-in shower and double basins, as well as floor-to-ceiling windows that look out to the spectacular cityscape. For something extra special, the Corner Terrace Suite boasts a bathtub, living room and private terrace, whereas The Whitby Suite occupies the entire top floor and includes two bedrooms and two terraces.
With its location finding things to do and eat won’t be an issue, but if you want to escape the Big Apple’s hustle for a little while, the hotel is home to multiple social spaces such as a drawing room, an orangery, a courtyard and even a 130-seat cinema with cutting-edge sound and projection technology. The Whitby Bar & Restaurant is housed in a richly decorated room with high ceilings and a 30ft pewter bar, serving everything from breakfast to evening cocktails.
