The New York EDITION

New York, USA

The hotel

A taste of elite New York living, the residential feel of The New York EDITION sets it apart from your average Manhattan hotel. Inside an historic clocktower, near the Flatiron building and Madison Square Park, its grand interiors are swathed in neutral, warm, ivory and oatmeal. The elegant guestrooms are just as decadent, featuring oversized windows, rain showers, complimentary WiFi, 48” HDTVs, and BEATS Bluetooth speakers. Its spa is reserved exclusively for hotel guests, but there’s no keeping New York’s gastro-aficionados from The Clocktower: with Michelin starred Jason Atherton at the helm, its classic-meets-contemporary British menu is served in three exquisite dining rooms (and the Lobby Bar). The centrepiece of the dining experience is the Gold Bar, with its gilt-framed photos, 3 foot globe chandelier, glistening cocktails, and 24k gold leaf bar ensuring it lives up to its name.

Hands down the best hotel. Hip, chic, super stylish and great service. I have a choice of many NYC hotels, but I consistently return to the NY Edition.

Whether it’s the superb service as I walk through the door from Kelvin, Arturo, Simon, Chris, Michael, Peter, Remvis, Elliot, Will to the excellent attention to detail from the front desk from staff like Suzad, to hospitality services from staff like Denora, NY Edition is a tier in and of itself . I travel here for business and the Edition family makes it feel like home. Read less

The room was well designed, but the overall stay was poor. Room service left for over a day, hardwork getting water delivered, restaurant average and the food poor....the gym has no windows and there are no amenities to speak of. I wouldn’t stay there again....

We were obsessed with the London Edition a few years ago so wanted to do an overnight at the NY one to have a similar experience. First, the amazing Edition scent was not present enough in the lobby or the common areas (or even in our room) this brought the experience to another level in London and it was missing here. The elevator was SO slow- there was maybe 1 running in the afternoon so it took awhile to get to our room. Our room was large for NY standards. The bed was a little soft, the bathroom was just really large but I was unsure why, there was no tub, just a lot of dead space. The TV was great, connected to HBO and you could login to your own Netflix or other subscriptions of you so desired. We had drinks at the crowded bar on a Saturday, interesting crowd for sure. We ordered room service which was delicious and came pretty quickly at 2am. In the morning I had a credit card fraud alert text of someone trying to do something at the hotel in the middle of the night. I was asleep so it declined. Then when we checked out we had extra charges on the room that we didn't make at the bar for food. So that was really strange and made me feel like my cc info wasn't as safe as it should be. I had to call accounting a few days later to get it all fixed. They fixed it but didn't seem as concerned as they should be regarding the fraud charges. Not sure if we'd go back to this one, but will certainly visit other Edition properties in the future. Read less

First is the amazing location. The New York EDITION is sitting right by the lush Madison Square Park, but its entrance is discreetly tucked away on the quiet 24th St. Then the building itself, a famed city landmark, the 1909 Met Life Tower, well known to New Yorkers and visitors alike by its clocktower (hence, the name of the restaurant located in… Read more
First is the amazing location. The New York EDITION is sitting right by the lush Madison Square Park, but its entrance is discreetly tucked away on the quiet 24th St. Then the building itself, a famed city landmark, the 1909 Met Life Tower, well known to New Yorkers and visitors alike by its clocktower (hence, the name of the restaurant located in the hotel). The New York EDITION is a brand new hotel, barely 4 years old. Its decor is a good combination of the original art moderne architectural style and contemporary minimalistic design. The spacious lobby features a lounge and ample sitting area. Three elevators get you to the upper floors (our room was located on the 30th floor) in mere seconds. The elevators operate on modern technology; there are no buttons inside the "cars", and you select your destination on the panel, either in the lobby or on any of the floors, respectively. The cleanliness and the upkeep of the hotel are exemplary. The rooms feature all possible amenities (think clothing brush, shoehorn, etc.), the soundproofing qualities and the sleep comfort are very good, with the room's climate control working smoothly, for both heating and cooling purposes (due to the crazy weather during our stay we had to use both). 2 electrical outlets on each side of the bed provide effortless charging capabilities for your smartphones and other personal gadgets and devices. The room offers several lighting modes, including personal reading lamps. The room's TV is equipped with Google Chromecast allowing you to stream your favorite content (YouTube, Netflix, etc.). The minibar is plentiful. Our "King Superior" room (274sqft/25sqm) featured a separate sitting area and very spacious closet. The bathroom was quite big with a roomy shower stall. The view from our 30th floor was to die for (please refer to our pictures). The sights of Madison Square Park and the New York skyline were truly breathtaking. The hospitality service (the evening turndown) is a nice addition but its quality should be improved (dirty dishes were left in the room and the water bottles were sloppily dropped). The complimentary welcome gift (quintessentially New York charcuterie sliders and pickles) was a nice surprise. The WiFi worked fine, no issues. Now, upon checking in, a serious underperformance took place (our room wasn't ready for a lengthy period of time after the scheduled check-in), but the management went above and beyond to assure a satisfactory outcome. The hotel's customer service honestly merits 6 stars out of 5. Highly recommended. For The Clocktower restaurant please refer to our dedicated review. Read less
