Review: The New York EDITION

I was in New York last week for work and stayed at The New York Edition.  The hotel's located right off Madison Square Park which is a great area and close to our office.  The property has only been open for three months and is quickly becoming one of the hottest hotels in the city.  There are only four EDITION properties (Istanbul, Miami, New York, and London) around the world but at least 8 in the pipeline.  We stayed at The London Edition in late 2013 and I was excited to check out the New York outpost.

I arrived at the hotel on Tuesday at 2:30 PM and was checked in and on my way to my room in less than five minutes.  I had booked a standard room but been upgraded (not sure of the category) to a higher floor corner room.  The hotel has been selling for $700+ per night (They have Krug in the mini bar!!) but August (slow time in Manhattan) brought the rate WAY down and offered the third night free.  Doubt it will work again for business or leisure travel but it was great to check out at least once.

I made my way up to the 34th floor and the room/view were both stunning.  In signature Ian Schrager style (even though this is a collaboration with Marriott) everything was clean and in neutral tones.  I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

The hotel is definitely expensive and thus a great use of the third night free promotion (offered through Labor Day this year) or Marriott Rewards points (70,000 per night).  I had a great stay and highly recommend the hotel.  Although I didn't have time to checkout the facilities or restaurant outlets this trip, Jason Atherton's Clocktower restaurant is supposed to be amazing.  With these views, it's hard to beat.
