Lobby Setai

The Setai Fifth Avenue, A Capella Managed Hotel, is a renewed celebration of sophistication and style.

Soaring more than 60 stories above the city, it represents the new heart of the world’s most inspired metropolis and provides effortless access to Manhattan’s most authentic neighborhoods. Exotic materials like Italian rosewood and Calacatta marble have been hand-selected to create its majestic 157 guest rooms and 57 seductive apartment suites, which range in size from 450 to 1,900 square feet. The Setai Fifth Avenue’s three-star fine dining restaurant, Ai Fiori, by executive chef Michael White, alluring Bar on Fifth, Auriga spa and exclusive Julien Farel Salon will simply have you enraptured and spellbound within the walls of this enclave. The Setai Fifth Avenue is your sanctuary, surrounding you with splendor, tranquility and understated elegance, whilst silencing the clamor of the bustling streets below.
