New York City showcases some of the most iconic institutions and places in history and culture. It offers the best in art, cuisine, and music. And as Andrew Rivkin knows, part of the enjoyment of visiting the Big Apple depends on where you decide to stay. NYC features some of the best hotels around, something everyone should take into consideration before traveling.
The Peninsula in Manhattan is one of the most luxurious hotels in the country, and one place that Andrew Rivkin loves to return to. It embodies the street in which it is located, Fifth Avenue, as a landmark of comfort and class. It is sophisticated and worldly, while still remaining comfortable and cozy, offering the best in accommodations for business travelers, tourist, and families.
The location is ideal for any travelers. On the corner of Fifth and 55th Street, guests are walking distance away from some of most iconic landmarks not only in New York City, but the country. While you stay at the Peninsula, take a stroll through Central Park, or check out what’s going on at the Museum of Modern Art and the Rockefeller Center. For guests who want to embrace the excitement of the city, you are perfectly situated in the heart of it. Still, for those who seek some peace and quiet from time to time, you are afforded the option of a room overlooking a quaint courtyard instead of a crowded thoroughfare.
Moreover, every room is set up for the most comfort possible, from the marble bathrooms to the double-glazed windows. Andrew himself particularly enjoys the spacious Grand Luxe Room, with a great view of Fifth Avenue, as well as high speed internet and a 42-inch flat-screen TV; perfect for such a large room.
However, if you are taking to the city and spending more time South of Houston Street, then Rivkin highly recommends the Trump Hotel in SoHo. Bold, refined, and intriguing, the Trump Hotel represents the next generation of hospitality– providing a new level of important hotels, not bound by convention; defined by a distinctly residential atmosphere, expansive rooms, lavish spa and fitness facilities, endless views and flawless comfort.
Adding distinction to the skyline, Trump SoHo New York brings a new perspective of Manhattan from its 391 guest rooms. This impressive 46-story hotel places you in one of the city’s most exciting neighborhoods. Soaring above Spring Street, this SoHo hotel provides unparalleled views of the city from floor to ceiling windows in the Deluxe guest rooms and Deluxe suites. The intimate yet dramatic two-story lobby combines rich and raw design elements that offer contrast and are reflective of SoHo’s environs.
Andrew likes to take in an evening of world-class dining with the authentic taste of northern Italy at Quattro Gastronomia Italiana. In addition, The Spa at Trump features New York’s only luxury hammam experience, indoor and outdoor relaxation rooms, a private salon and fitness center.
Like The Peninsula, the location of the Trump Hotel is ideal. The Urban Plaza along the east side of the hotel gives guests and area residents a landscaped open air space in which to linger. Possessing one of the city’s most coveted locations where SoHo meets Tribeca and the West Village with celebrated art galleries, restaurants, destination boutique shopping and nightlife scene, the Trump is a perfect place for any visitor to the city.
