Located in the heart of midtown New York’s Flatiron District, steps from Madison Square Park, the luxury hotel seamlessly blends the integrity and character of a prestigious landmark building with a simple, sophisticated design sensibility. Originally built in 1909 as the headquarters for The Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, the historic 41-story clock tower offers jaw-dropping 360-degree views.
The design hotel’s 273 unique guest rooms and suites feature oak floors and dark oak wood-paneled foyers that create a cozy, private residential entrance. Oversize windows frame city views, ranging from a close-up, intimate view of Madison Square Park, to the world-famous Empire State Building, to the breathtaking skyline of New York City.
Suites feature custom sofas and chaise lounges with imported linen upholstery, silver silk drapery and a walnut coffee table with espresso leather top. Large black and white photography from renowned fashion photographer Melvin Sokolsky’s iconic 1963 “Bubble” series are perched atop dark oak ledges on the building’s guest room floors. With its wealth of individual touches, residential feel, modern sensibility and emphasis on comfort and quality, the hotel suites at The New York EDITION combine the familiar and the original to create an interior of timeless style and enduring design.
Located on the second floor of our Flatiron District hotel, this gastronomic gem is under the direction of Executive Chef Jason Atherton and offers a restaurant menu of updated classics and contemporary British fare. Guests can enjoy all-day dining in a series of three rooms, each with its own unique theme, before capping off the meal in the billiards room or at the aptly named Gold Bar.
Named for the iconic Flatiron Building at 23rd Street, Broadway and 5th Avenue, the Flatiron neighborhood is bounded by Union Square and Greenwich Village to the south, Chelsea to the west, NOMad to the north and Gramercy Park to the east. Central to all of Manhattan, it’s a destination in its own right, boasting public art installations in Madison Square Park, iconic landmarks with Beaux-Arts architecture, award-winning restaurants and boutique shopping. An experience tying historic and modern New York, our hotel is close to Union Square, the Empire State Building, Grand Central Terminal and The Morgan Library & Museum.
