NEW YORK—Viceroy Hotel Group announced the opening of Viceroy New York, marking the company’s first branded property in Manhattan.
“Today’s much anticipated opening of Viceroy New York marks an extremely proud day for our brand, and we look forward to welcoming our many loyal guests who have been eagerly anticipating the unveiling of this unique hotel” said Bill Walshe, CEO of Viceroy Hotel Group.
Viceroy New York partnered with design firm Roman and Williams to create the hotel’s exteriors and interiors. Design details include over-scaled, fluted, cast-glass bricks at the street level, brass fluting at the base, and black muntined windows, recalling the neighborhood’s pre-war structures and the glamour of nearby iconic locations.
The space features a double-height lobby, bespoke interiors, and public spaces that offer a combination of custom-designed and vintage elements. Hotel amenities include a business center—including a meeting room, boardroom, and function areas all complete with A/V capabilities—as well as a Technogym fitness center, and indoor swimming pool. At the rear of the lobby, the hotel’s library is the home to a selection of hand-picked books, as well as Gerber Group’s “cartender,” which kicks off happy hour nightly with complimentary samples of seasonal “off-the-menu” cocktails from a vintage bar.
Viceroy New York offers 240 guestrooms throughout 29 stories, many of which showcase views of Central Park. With floor-to-ceiling windows tailored in exotic woods, leather, and a mix of metal accents, each room features amenities, including Beats by Dr. Dre Beatbox Portable audio sound systems, Sferra linens, Neil George spa products, illy coffee machines, and custom curated mini-bars featuring top-shelf offerings like Vosges Haut-chocolat, Mash soft drinks, and Hudson Whiskey. Guestrooms also provide hotel-branded smartphones with Viceroy Connect, a custom app that allows guests to control every aspect of their stay.
