New York City, center of the universe and one of our favorite places on earth. The hardest part about visiting the city, albeit for work or play, is the fact the whirlwind atmosphere that makes you feel like you can’t stand still. The buzz, the ambience, the glowing energy of Manhattan is the very thing we love about the place, and the very thing that makes a weekend stay so overwhelming.
Enters WestHouse Hotel, a boutique property whose mantra is ‘Home Away From Home.’ A sophisticated boutique property among luxury hotels in NY, WestHouse Hotel New York is a house away from home for the well-traveled guest passing through New York City. With an elegance reminiscent of the 1920s, WestHouse’s contemporary style inspires a sense of leisure and intimacy. The residential-style luxury hotel is located in the heart of New York City’s midtown.
WestHouse New York derives inspiration from a bygone era of social, artistic and cultural spirit. The accommodations are infused with the history of grandeur and create a refined retreat for the season global traveler, setting itself apart from other cookie-cutter hotels. WestHouse has established itself as a home for the privileged among premier hotels in Midtown Manhattan.
The bedrooms boast a fantastic view of New York City, Central Park or Times Square, are beautifully designed and have been created with thoughtful elements that naturally evoke a beautiful home. Award-winning design firm Jeffery Beers International thoughtfully created an elegant environment reminiscent of a luxurious New York City Townhouse with touches of 1920s Art Deco. It’s comfortable and inviting, elegantly appointed without feeling stuffy or overly formal. It’s what you always want your own living room to feel like, but you don’t have to do any of the work…And the champagne is always flowing.
Part of the home away from home concept includes a gorgeous terrace room with one of the best views in the entire city. Wander down for a cappuccino in the early morning, a feastworthy brunch later, and delicious light fare and snacks until happy hour in the evening. This isn’t an amateur wine hour—the atmosphere feels just like a party in your living room…that is, if you were Don & Betty Draper.
The concierge service is also one of the best in the city—super accommodating and incredibly helpful. Heading out to a Gala but forgot your tuxedo buttons? Don’t worry, Ben will run to Thomas Pink (literally run) and have those delivered for you before you can say bibbidi bobbidi boo.
One of the best perks of WestHouse? The close proximity to Queen of the Night dinner theater experience at the Paramount Hotel, a theatrical-culinary-slightly pornographic cirque du soliel. Not quite sure what that means? You have to experience it to understand. It’s a reason to get glitzed up, have a fantastic if not primitive meal, wander a dark iridescent room with aerialists unfolding from the ceiling and potentially have a gorgeous queen look into your soul and ask about the most courageous act in your life. The evening will be absolutely unforgettable. Oh, and did we mention the whips?
