The rooms at the Royalton have a loose sea cabin theme, but it is not so evident as to be in bad taste. The bed, whose plaid is cheekily draped over the corner rather than laid across it, is partially inside a mahogany alcove from the top of which hangs a bright bulb encircled by a small glass shade. There are three mahogany fronted cupboards along the same wall, each with horn handles and a porthole at the top. One houses the minibar, another the array of novelty products including t-shirt, cap, plasters, oils and a cheeky kit and the third is for storage but conceals the umbrella (available to purchase), iron and ironing board, hairdryer and bathrobes. In the gaps between the equally spaced closets are a desk with its iPod docking station and then a couch with a delicate glass-topped coffee table. The flatscreen television is mounted on the wall next to the bed. The bathroom is tiled entirely in slate and features a metal sink in the glass vanity. Towels are neatly rolled up on metal shelves next to a walk in shower with a rain shower head. On another shelf, this time glass, is a single branched candelabra with a box of matches. Other features include a metal stool in front of the makeup mirror, a silver cup for rinsing one's mouth and Korres toiletries. The standard room, which also comes with a bathtub, can have either an interior view, a vis-à-vis or a view onto 43rd or 44th Street. The superior rooms are identical to the standard ones, the only difference being their slightly larger square footage and the presence of a curved desk. They also feature a quirky little pebble-shaped metal shelf protruding from the wall in which a candle is planted. A postcard rests on there as well and is changed every day. The deluxe rooms, bigger still, are divided into those with a fireplace, those with a soaking tub, those which have both and the king which is larger and has a guaranteed city view. The loft also has all the above with an extra special king bed. The alcove suite, the largest room besides the penthouses, is similar to the other rooms in that it has the same amenities, but differs in that the bedroom and lounge are separated by a curtain. It boasts both the Duraflame log fireplace (which burns for three or four hours, but is only for temperatures below 10°c) and 5ft Japanese soaking tub. Finally the three penthouses named 'A', 'B' and 'C' are the ultimate in modern New York apartment living. The former is by far the largest and boasts not only a terrace, but also a kitchen and dining area, as well as a Roman tub in the bathroom. 'B' and 'C' are both roughly a third of the size of 'A', but also have terraces, large living spaces and sweeping views of Manhattan. The fourth floor of the hotel is given over to smoking rooms.
