Set in a landmark 17-story Beaux-Arts-style building on Madison Avenue and 76th Street, the 190-room hotel reopened in 2009 following a $60 million top-down restoration led by award-winning designer Lauren Rottet. The result? An aesthetic nod to uptown swank (the Bar Pleiades has beige-quilted walls that were inspired by a Chanel handbag) mixed with contemporary accents (a striking six-foot tapestry of Kate Moss greets guests in the lobby). Spruced-up rooms and suites—in shades of gray, cream, and white—have Duxiana beds, Pratesi bathrobes, and exclusive amenities from perfumer Laura Tonatto. Other tony features: a 2,200-square-foot, private rooftop garden; a deluxe room service menu from Café Boulud; and the relocated Cornelia Spa, which opened at the property in July 2012.

Room to Book:

Request a room with a window seat overlooking Madison Avenue (cushions are embroidered with sayings like, “Through these windows lies the soul of the city”).

Insider Tip:

The Surrey mixologist, on hand 24/7, will craft your perfect cocktail (and show you how to concoct drinks like Basil Lime Gimlets) in the comfort of your room.
