Suite Dreams: The 10 Best Suites in New York

By Chris Boyle

By Codelia Mantsebo

Nicknamed ‘the city that never sleeps’, New York’s most luxurious hotels offer everything from a pillow menu to customizable, heat-absorbing mattresses to ensure maximum snugness.

Packed with connotations of style, glamour and grandeur, elite hotels in New York will feature all that the elite traveler desires, from designer décor to floor-to-ceiling windows offering panoramic views of the world’s capital.

Whether you’re looking for Old World opulence, celebrity-studded party scenes, or a private spa, you’ll find it in one of the best suites in New York.

Ty Warner Penthouse, Four Season Hotel New York

Touting a renovation price tag of more than $50 million, this delightful expanse offers nine rooms, a 360-degree panorama of the city below and four French doors revealing a view of Central Park that is almost surreal in its perfection. As impressive as the décor are the personal butler, personal therapist and personal chauffeur for unlimited travel in a Rolls-Royce Phantom or Mercedes Maybach, depending on your preference. Every element of this I.M. Pei and Peter Marino-designed space is breathtaking and constitutes a catalog of the world’s most exceptional materials.
