The Viceroy Hotel just opened and is nestled in the heart of Midtown on West 57th Street. With existing locations in Abu Dhabi, Anguilla, and Miami this 240 luxury room hotel will tailor to the most astute tastemakers and trendsetters of the world. Accommodations include rooms styled in exotic woods and leather, floor to ceiling windows, and breathtaking views of Central Park. Amenities provided by Beats by Dre, Illy coffee, as well as a viceroy smartphone and hotel app will assist jetsetters reveling in the city that never sleeps. Later this month, Marc Murphy’s restaurant Kingside, will open at street-level and will offer breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late night dining. Viceroy New York and Kingside combine the designer cachet in architecture/design and cutting-edge nightlife and cuisine in a one- of- a kind downtown aesthetic-without losing the refinement of uptown.
