The tower that houses The London NYC is tall and slim (rather like its personification might appear) meaning that there are only around 10 or so rooms on each of its 54 floors which in turn means a high degree of discretion for guests. The room types are divided into Suites and Luxury Suites and further subdivided into categories. Whichever room you opt for, it will be supremely designed with the highest quality furniture, the utmost style and the best thing is that it will never ever date. The standard room, the London Suite, is beautifully appointed and presented meticulously and is available in several colour schemes. The bed is dressed in Fili D'Oro Italian linens and has a thick plaid draped over its end with pillows and cushions placed perfectly at the head. On one side of the bed is an iPod clock radio docking station and on the other is a telephone with screen display. The third piece of technology in the room is the flatscreen television mounted on the wall. Above the padded leather headboard is a mirror stretching the width of the room which gives an extra spatial dimension. At the end of the bed is an extremely smart trunk concealing the iron and a lint roller. The rest of the room is finished off in white paint, with the ceiling having a gloss finish and the floor covered in a grey fishbone carpet. Through the mirrored double French doors is the salon area, featuring limed oak floor and a large bay window in which is installed a banquette which has been custom woven for the hotel. From behind this soars a lamp which arches over the couch and hovers above a round marble specially designed for the hotel in conjunction with Gordon Ramsey. It screws up and down depending on whether it is being used as a coffee table or for dining. Next to this smart set up is an embossed leather desk with, pulled up to it, a gracefully carved work chair. In one corner of the salon is a modern interpretation of a classic rocking chair, upholstered in cream leather with a wooden frame whose inferior part is painted black. You'll also find, just near the entrance to the room, the well-stocked minibar, which has paisley-covered doors and above this is a pouring station with bottle opener, swizzle sticks and an ice shovel. The brilliantly white spacious bathroom, which is separated from the rest of the room by a sliding door, is fitted with hand cut tiles and a marble vanity, features a roll in shower (or a single shower and a bathtub), giant mirror and Clear toiletries. The hotel's Vista rooms are the same as the London Suites, but are slightly larger and are situated higher up the tower, thus boasting a better view. The two-bedroom suites have an adjoining bedroom which can be closed off. The first of the Luxury Suites is the Sky Suite which measures just short of 1,000ft². The bedroom itself is fairly similar to that of the regular suites aside from the presence of the limed oak parquet and rug and the paisley wallpaper behind the bed. There is also a drawer unit for a little extra storage. Between the bedroom and the salon is a large floor to ceiling window in front of which is an uber-design perspex chaise longue with leather cushion and an oversize open closet. The salon is an extremely comfortable space centered upon the seating area of couches and coffee table. It comes complete with flatscreen television and full entertainment system. Just behind the couches are a chic little marble table and chairs above which is a highly original modern dark glass chandelier. The rest of the space is dotted with a beautiful light wood sideboard, objets d'art, lamps, photos and mirrors. The London Apartment is even grander with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, marble fireplace and an array of objets d'art and books. The spectacular Atrium Suite has a glass ceiling offering panoramic views of Manhattan as well as a dining room, while the Penthouse, the hotel's masterpiece duplex apartment, boasts 180° views of the city, including Central Park, the Hudson River and George Washington Bridge, multiple bay windows, a kitchen and dining area and two bathrooms. All rooms have complimentary in-room internet and wireless access and of course safes.
