The London NYC, formerly the Rihga Royal New York, continues its predecessor’s promise of luxury. With its streamlined design, this Manhattan property includes 564 suites and flats transformed by Irish interior designer David Collins. Business and leisure travelers alike appreciate the London NYC’s proximity to the city's premier business and shopping districts, Central Park, Carnegie Hall and Broadway theaters.
Suites and flats are spacious—London Vista Suites boast 500 square feet, London Suites range from 350-500 square feet and London Flats range from 150-300 square feet—and some rooms feature a parlor area separated from the bedroom by French doors. The Waterworks-designed bathrooms include double rain showerheads, hand-cut mosaics, robes and personal Waterworks apothecary products. In the bedroom, guests will find Egyptian cotton bedding by Fili D’Oro of Italy. All rooms include wireless high-speed Internet and two-line telephones as well as automated personal bars, flat-screen LCD TVs, and iHome iPod docking stations.
The London NYC Club, the hotel’s 24-hour fitness center, will debut in early 2007 and will feature a Zen-inspired sundeck with a fire pit, yoga classes, spa services and access to personal trainers, nutritionists and sports therapists.
The London NYC also houses the first U.S. location of chef Gordon Ramsay’s namesake restaurant, Gordon Ramsay at The London. Guests can choose where they will enjoy Ramsay’s modern French cuisine: the main restaurant; the more casual area of the restaurant, The London Bar; or in-room on one of the custom-designed swiveling dinner tables.
The hotel’s concierge partner, Quintessentially, will provide guests with chauffeur-driven town-car services to and from any of Manhattan’s three major airports and assist with restaurant reservations, tickets to shows and concerts, VIP treatment at nightclubs and many other services.
