Tall, dark and handsome


Middle of Manhattan

Steps from Central Park but with loads of downtown swagger, the Viceroy New York hotel is a sophisticated Midtown tower styled from the ground up by design powerhouse Roman and Williams. Like something out of Wes Anderson’s cinematic dreams, a gleaming bistro buzzes with locals and visitors just off the lobby, carefully chosen books line the library’s bespoke built-ins and red doors with portal-like details open into rooms as sleek as a cabin on a luxury yacht. Permission to come aboard, granted.

Our favourite rooms

Styled with honey-hued built-in cabinets, custom platform beds and leather accents, all the rooms are reminiscent of cabins on a luxury ocean liner. And, like any seafaring voyage, we’re on the lookout for land – in this case, leafy Central Park. For bird’s-eye views of Manhattan’s largest patch of green, book a Viceroy Park View room (with a buttery leather-cushioned window seat) or, splurge for a spacious Viceroy Park Suite with a clubby seating area separate from the bedroom.

Packing tips

No need to lug heavy hardcovers with you. You’ll find a hand-selected stack of books about art, design and local history filed on the shelves in every room.


Several rooms are adapted to accommodate mobility-impaired guests.


Pets under 25lbs are welcome for $200 per stay. Please notify the hotel when you make your reservation. See more pet-friendly hotels in New York.


Welcome. Cots are not available, but a good option for families is the Viceroy Deluxe Double room that can be connected to the King Suite.


Viceroy New Park has several eco-conscious initiatives in place. Guests may request a folio of local listings for eco-friendly restaurants, services and businesses, and linen and towel reuse program is offered in every room. Eco-friendly practices such as the use of green cleaning products, low-flow water fixtures, drip-irrigation for flowers and trees, run-off filters for the parking garage and extensive recycling programs are all in place. Also, the hotel has adopted a Green Purchasing policy, and makes it a point to buy sustainable, eco-friendly products and food from local sources whenever possible.

Hotel restaurant

The new American menu features an extensive raw bar, charcuterie and cheese boards, savoury small plates, main courses for one and dishes meant for sharing, like the table-tipping 32oz rib eye steak and whole roasted red snapper.  

Hotel bar

Set just off of the lobby with picture windows peering out onto the street, the bar at Kingside crafts cocktails with suggestive names – like the Midnight Tryst (gin, vanilla, blackberries, lemon) and the Troublemaker (vodka, banal, strawberry-lime, cucumber soda). There is also a full list of wines, New York small batch beers on tap and classic cocktails, as well. The Roof, is a sleek indoor/outdoor drinks den with postcard-worthy skyline views.

Worth getting out of bed for

On the north end of Midtown, Viceroy Central Park is just blocks in any direction from high-end shopping, museums, the theatre and one of the city’s finest natural wonders. Stroll two blocks north and you’ll find yourself immersed in New York’s most prominent patch of green, Central Park. Bike the paved paths, take a tour by horse-drawn carriage tour or amble the interiors of the 778-acre city-owned parkland designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux opened in 1857. Leave the urban jungle for exotic creatures of another kind at the Central Park Zoo. Catch the daily sea lion feeding and splash shows, and don’t miss the sweet children’s area for little animal lovers. Four blocks south of the hotel you can commune with some of the city’s most exceptional contemporary artwork at the Museum of Modern Art to see Van Gogh’s Starry Night and Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon. Spend the evening in another neighbourhood institution, the legendary performance centre Carnegie Hall – where everyone from the New York Philharmonic to Morrissey – have taken the stage in this landmark Italian Renaissance building.

Local restaurants

It will be hard to pull yourself away from Kingside, but you should wander out for a meal or two. During your day at the Modern Museum of Art, pause at the museum’s exceptional fine dining restaurant, The Modern (+1 212 333 1220) and take a window seat with clear views of the sublime sculpture garden. An elegant spot for a lingering lunch or dinner over roasted Maine lobster, poached quail or and herbed rack of lamb with bacon fondue. Reserve a table at Ai Fiore on Fifth Avenue (+1 212 613 8660), where award-winning chef Michael White combines French and Italian flavours. Can’t decide on house made pasta over fresh fish? Sample a few dishes with the four-course prix fixe or settle in with the six-course chef’s tasting menu. The marble, 40-seat bar has a comprehensive cocktail menu and tantalising bar grub with creative combinations such as diver scallops with celery root and black truffle bone marrow. If catching a Broadway show, DB Bistro Moderne (+1 212 391 2400) has a pre-theatre, prix fixe menu in addition to its regular modern French-American fusion dishes. Punchy prints of flowers line the walls of this elegant and casual Midtown restaurant from renowned chef Daniel Boulud.

Anonymous review

By Jim Biddulph, Interiors and art ranter

Single-digit forecasts be damned – despite New York City reporting one of the most frigid winters in years, I was making my first trip to the Big Apple. That’s right, I was a New York virgin; Mrs Smith was not. Yet, we were both game to discover how a bracing cold-front could fully wake you up to a place. Of course, it helped tremendously that we had a warm welcome to look forward to at the Viceroy New York, a brand-sparkling-new hotel in Midtown.

Hopping out of the cab on West 57th Street, Mrs Smith boldly bowls out towards the eye-catching golden glow of the art deco-inspired entrance. Or so I think. Once inside, the ski-hatted and darkly attired doorman (equipped with secret service-like earpiece) whisks our bags away, and I scan the reception desk for Mrs Smith. She’s nowehere to be found.

The lobby doesn’t appear large enough to lose someone in, however, its beauty is distracting – mirrored Carrara marbled panels sit alongside polished timber and brass fixtures. I finally establish what I was already starting to deduce: Mrs Smith had bombed on ahead into the adjacent door just off the lobby to the hotel’s buzzed about Kingside bar and restauant.

She reappears following just a quick peek at its glossy-subway-tiled-diner-meets-Parisian-bistro interior. Unfortunately, the concierge informs us that the restaurant Kingside is currently closed due to a plumbing issue.

No bother. After our busy day we’re ready to settle in for the night. Mrs Smtih took business meetings around town, but wide-eyed tourist that I am, I’ve spent most of it just four blocks south marvelling at the MoMA’s contemporary art collection and lingering over a delicious lunch in the relaxed-yet-buzzing gallery cafe.

Squeezing into the snug lift along with the doorman and our bags, we pop out onto the 22nd floor, where the interiors continue in a high-end luxury mix of dark wood, brass, up-lighting and a deep crimson carpet.

Carrying an air of business about it, our Viceroy Park View room follows suit. If you’re familiar with plush boardrooms or wood panelled offices with subtle finishes and luxurious leather accents then you’ll feel right at home. Thoughtful details, such as the Roman and Williams design, custom platform bed and honey-hued built-in cabinets, make the room comfortable without straying into the austere.

Handsome as the decor may be, it’s outweighed by the wide-open views of Central Park. From this height and vantage point you’re reminded precisely where you are: New York City. And with its twinkling lights, reaching buildings, nestled water towers and massive green space smack-dab in the city’s centre, there’s nowhere else quite like it.

It’s a scene I could imagine surveying daily from the dark wood writing desk in the corner as I tap away on a laptop. Powered by a smart tablet, each room is also connected to the hotel facilities and has a Beats by Dr Dre stereo – perfect for providing background music as you take care of business.

No work for us, though. Hooking up via my phone we unashamedly crank our NYC playlist. Gadget geeks take note: as well as the digital, there’s also coffee related technology in the form of a an Illy espresso maker.

Spectacular views and a killer playlist – this calls for wine. At a loss for a bottle opener in the minibar, we dial up room service for the trusty tool along with a bite to eat. Room service is thankfully still on, and the opener arrives with tasty artichoke hearts and what we had hoped would be an American steak cooked to medium-rare perfection. It was not, although this might be due to the kitchen issues. Never mind, we’re ready for a rest in the tempting bed before a day of exploration.

Waking the next morning, we treat ourselves to breakfast in bed (the upside to the Kingside’s sogginess). It’s a sizeable and sweet affair providing necessary fuel for the day.

Strolling just around the corner, we wander in the south entrance of Central Park for a frozen, yet enchanted, experience. Hopping in a cab, we melt the icicles before taking a spin by Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall and Rockefeller Center where we pass on their much-touted observatory deck – who needs the view from up there when our room already offers so much?

Returing to our well-placed pied-à-terre, we make our way to the basement pool in the hopes of thawing out. Set adjacent to the fitness centre, the pool appears immediately modest – too shallow or small for actual swimming. However, a diligent attendant kindly asks if we’d like the bubbles on. Transformation. The dinky pool suddenly becomes a huge Jacuzzi; every square centimetre covered in bubbles that are lit from below with a changing array of coloured lights.

Welcoming staff, warm interiors, curative Central Park views and even a splash of hydrotherapy – turns out a stay at the Viceroy was just the thing to take the chill off of a New York City winter. And, when Mrs Smith and I return, we’ll be sure to find our way into the lovely and luxuriant lobby once again – without losing track of one another this time.
