Hilton’s global luxury brand recently opened in Manhattan, bringing 54 floors and 562 suites to the Big Apple.

The Conrad New York Midtown is the brand’s second property in New York City, located at the former site of The London NYC. The debut follows a complete renovation designed to turn the hotel’s suites into more of a “metropolitan pied-a-terre” than a traditional Manhattan hotel room.

“We are thrilled to expand our portfolio of luxury hotels in the Americas with the opening of the Conrad New York Midtown,” said Danny Hughes, executive vice president and president, Americas, Hilton.

The hotel’s suites range from 500-square-foot, one-bedroom offerings to 3,000 square-foot, two-story penthouses.

“The Conrad New York Midtown has a contemporary design that when paired with personalized, intuitive service will truly inspire the globally connected traveler,” said Martin Rinck, executive vice president and global head, Luxury and Lifestyle Group, Hilton.

The property lives up to its elevated promises through the inclusion of a number of upscale amenities, like complimentary razor shaves for men, in-room Dyson Supersonic hairdryers, luxury in-room dining options and much more.

The property also offers signature dining with Dabble, a lobby restaurant serving light fare and classic cocktails.

Check out the hotel and book your stay.
