$19,000 is the price to pay to spend a night in New York City’s trendiest, most luxuries new suite in Manhattan. Unveiled last fall at the legendary Peninsula New York, the Fifth Avenue haven is more similar to a grand apartment than hotel accommodation. Guests are treated to sweeping views of the New York skyline while enjoying a total of 2,500 square feet at their disposal on the 17th-floor of the central skyscraper. A sprawling living room and elegant dining room are available for entertaining in addition to a gourmet kitchen, an impressive collection of commissioned art.
Furnished to a high standard of modern austerity and comfort, the apartment boasts polished wood, floor-to-ceiling windows that let natural light flood in, marble details and plush furnishings for a laid-back, business-style ambiance. The Fifth Avenue residence manages to remain both crisp and elegant. There’s a separate room for work and play, an oversize tub in the master bedroom, a private study and a powder room.
One of the focal points of the apartment is the kitchen – stocked with Gaggenau appliances and a 50-bottle wine refrigerator. Commissioned works of art tie the entire place together and include an impressive hand-painted mural by the Hong Kong artist David Qian as well as a custom-made headboard of embossed leather by Londoner Helen Amy Murray in the bedroom.
The strategic location of the real estate jewel gives immediate proximity to all delights of Manhattan’s famous shopping avenue. The Museum of Modern Art, its Alexander Calder and Ellsworth Kelly masterpieces alongside the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden are all within walking distance.
An even more striking feature is the proprietary tablet technology that allows guests to control everything from lighting to temperature, as well as communicate 24/7 with a team of highly-skilled hotel concierges—this is just a small fraction of the benefits that the Fifth Avenue Suite offers for its exclusive guests at the price of $19,000 a night.
