The New York Edition to open in May

15 Apr 2015 by Clement Huang

Marriott International is set to open its latest Edition-branded property in New York next month.

The New York Edition hotel is situated on Madison Square Park, an area referred to as NoMad, and housed within the world-famous “Clocktower”, which was first built in 1909.

Despite the inherited pedigree of the building, Marriott has opted for modern and sophisticated interior designs. Also inspired by New York City’s turn of the 20th century private clubs, the 273-room property will be a blend of old and new.

For instance, the dark oak wood panelled foyer entrance of each guestroom is highly reminiscent of an upscale New York apartment in the 1920. Meanwhile, the large windows showcase New York City’s skyline, while many of the suites offer sweeping 180-degree views of Manhattan. Each room also comes with a classic, deep floating white oak desk, and a bed with a dark walnut headboard.

The hotel’s offers a number of F&B outlets, with the restaurant on the second floor being the key highlight. Comprised of three intimate dining rooms, a parlour with a billiard table and a library serving cocktails, the rooms draw inspiration from over four centuries of art and design.

With original herringbone oak floors, mahogany wainscoting on the walls, and a restored Venetian plaster ceiling, each of the three dining areas also feature a large chandelier by modernist designer Eric Schmitt.
