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, with rooms that are typically larger than a standard room in Manhattan. Business and leisure travelers alike appreciate The London NYC’s proximity to 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 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 flat-screen LCD TVs and iHome iPod docking stations.
The London NYC Club, the hotel’s state-of-the-art 24-hour fitness center, debuted in the summer of 2007 and features the most advanced, high-performance cardiovascular and strength training equipment complete with individual TV's, and bottled water and ear phones are also provided for guests. In addition, the Concierge Service — Quintessentially — can arrange personal trainers and in-room massages with prior notice.
The London NYC also houses chef Gordon Ramsay’s namesake restaurant, Maze by Gordon Ramsay at The London. Guests can choose where they will enjoy Ramsay’s modern French cuisine: the main restaurant; the more casual area adjacent to Maze, The London Bar; or in-room on one of the custom-designed swiveling dinner tables.
Paying homage to its home across the pond, The London NYC has an extra perk for its transatlantic travelers: free telephone calls to London for up to six hours per day.
The hotel’s concierge partner, Quintessentially, can assist with restaurant reservations, tickets to shows and concerts, VIP treatment at nightclubs and many other services.
