THE WHITBY HOTEL
Opening early 2017
In early 2017, Firmdale Hotels—of which I am a HUGE fan—will open The Whitby Hotel, its second New York property (it's first is The Crosby Street Hotel). Situated in the heart of upper midtown Manhattan on West 56th Street at 5th Avenue, it’s surrounded by international designer shopping, world-class department stores, restaurants, galleries, and museums. Plus, iconic Central Park and Broadway are just a short walk away.
But the BEST part? The interiors will be designed by Firmdale Hotels owner and design director Kit Kemp in her award-winning luxurious, contemporary style that includes an innovative, exciting mix of color, pattern, and texture. As with all other Firmdale hotels, every room will have its own individual color scheme—that's right, no two rooms are alike!
Looking for the ultimate luxury experience? The entire top floor will be dedicated to The Whitby Suite, a spectacular two-bedroom suite with spacious furnished terraces facing uptown and downtown. I can't wait to see the views from this room, and am already imgaging myself sipping a glass of wine on the terrace.
