Reinvented New York City Luxury Hotels
Andaz 5th Avenue offers different, reinvented luxury, its one of the more contemporary and relaxed hotels in the heart of this quintessential City.
Andaz 5th Avenue fills a unique niche in New York City Luxury Hotels options and it is very well accepted by savvy travelers who look for less informality. I personally find it a great place to stay, due to its certain uniqueness.
Hotel philosophy is to be “a little different”,which is true as personalized service is offered with less complications, and with individual style. Situated in the midtown Manhattan Hotel Andaz offers more casual experience: personalized check- in cubes, welcome drink and lobby area where free espresso and wine are being served.
Location is absolutely perfect, you are right across the street from the New York Library and Bryant Park ideal base for your New York adventure. Some of New York City luxury hotels are more traditional but Andaz design has more of the loft-like feel, it reminiscent of apartment in pre- war New York. Room offer spacious work areas, some residential style suites offer balconies or landscape terraces which is very unusual. I love the idea of balconies, to sit outside your suite in New York City is priceless, large suite spaces are extremely appreciated, in addition modern style furniture, bathrooms with rain showers (my favorite) double sinks, ample counter space and fine entertainment create a true home like atmosphere. New York City Luxury Hotels come with its price, Andaz rates are rather reasonable around $350 per night.
The Shop – this restaurants is a wonderful place to enjoy simple but delicious food based on organic ingredients from local farmers. It’s Manhattan´s favorite restaurant any time of the year. The Bar Downstairs is popular and packed most of the nights it’s a great place to grab a drink, glass of fine wine (amazing Pinot Noirs from Sonoma or New York Riesling), beer or a share a dish from their Latin- style menu. It is so good and certainly NOT to be missed, you will truly enjoy it.
If you plan a day in around town you may as well enjoy their delicious menu on the go by visiting restaurant/take-away shop, called the Shop Retail, which also carries New York’s cult favorites – Sullivan Street Bakery breads, Mast Brothers chocolate, Café Grumpy coffee.
So here it is Andaz New York City luxury hotels option for our travelers – less formal high-end.
