NEW YORK—WestHouse Hotel New York has unveiled The Terrace, an expansive space on the 23rd floor that boasts panoramic views of Manhattan. It offers guests an assortment of breakfast presentations, afternoon teas, hors d’oeuvres, and evening canapes in a private venue.
Open throughout the day, it includes a kitchen and open dining room, private dining room, lounge, and alfresco terrace. Like the rest of the property, The Terrace is accessible only to hotel guests, and the array of food and beverage presentations offered are all built into WestHouse’s residents fee.
“At WestHouse, our guests really are our number one priority,” said Karla Keskin, general manager, WestHouse Hotel New York. “Unlike other hotel rooftops and lounges, where guests may find they just another customer amongst the public, if they can get in at all, WestHouse’s Terrace is exclusively for those who are staying with us. We are delighted to give our guests access to some of the most coveted outdoor space, breathtaking views, and thoughtfully curated experiences with the opening of The Terrace.”
Jeffrey Beers International (JBI), the award-winning firm responsible for WestHouse Hotel New York’s interiors, designed the stylish Terrace spaces. Weaving many of the design motifs and Art Deco influences found throughout The Den and the WestHouse Hotel lobby, JBI utilized a rich selection of materials to conceive The Terrace. Washed in warm shades of amber, soft gray, and toasted beige, the space overall is characterized by accents including polished brass and bronze.
“We wanted to design the Terrace as a multifunctional dining and living space that feels like part of a home,” Beers said. “Like the rest of WestHouse Hotel, design details throughout the Terrace help to create a comfortable and inviting space.”
Guests will enter The Terrace through a central foyer, which leads into a multi-purpose space that is both functional and elegant, serving as a main dining room and kitchen. An eclectic art installation features rectangular brass plates on antique hooks, as well as framed antiqued keys and chic Deco mirrors. Decorative hammered tin panels with a brass finish accent the ceiling. An inviting 45-foot banquette, upholstered in camel-colored leather, offers ample seating. Tall wingback chairs upholstered in shades of navy blue, caramel brown, and smoky silver, add a depth of color, pattern, and texture to the space.
In the center of The Terrace is a dining display for buffet-style breakfasts, afternoon tea, and evening canape presentations. Its quartz stone counter resembles a residential kitchen island, with brass and wood stools suitable for singles dining. Guests can access this private Terrace at their leisure; whether they choose to pour themselves a glass of freshly squeezed juice from the well-stocked refrigerator, or prepare a cappuccino at the Nespresso station, The Terrace allows them to live as they would in their own home.
The private dining room features a striking long wood dining table, seating up to eight, with townhouse-inspired details such as inset wall panels with original artwork. The adjoining outdoor terrace space is accented with lounge area seating as well as dining tables, replete with oversized umbrellas. Tall antique bronze metal trellis screens bookend the seating groups, which feature a variety of sectional sofas, dining tables, and chairs, along with antique brass side tables. Tall glass and metal lanterns display candles.
The Terrace will be open to guests beginning on July 31.
