Where We're Laying Our Heads

New Hotels in the Big Apple

We’re hot to hole up in two new hotel projects in New York City, both by design duo Roman & Williams (New York’s Ace Hotel, restaurants The Dutch, John Dory Oyster Bar, Lafayette, plus the still-bumping Boom Boom Room at the Standard Hotel). The just-opened Highline Hotel in Chelsea is a 60-room English Gothic wonder, built in 1895 as student housing for the General Theological Seminary. It’s an amalgam of original stained-glass windows, moldings and pine floors that overlooks — you guessed it — Highline Park. In midtown, the new Viceroy New York opens in October on 57th Street, across from Central Park. The Viceroy sizzles with modern and glamorous elements, similar to its sister properties.
