Was inevitable, fashion fave hotel brand makes home in NYC. Stands stylishly above 57th, in veritable showdown with Park Hyatt across the street. Roman Williams designers Stephen Alesh and Robin Standefer didn’t skimp on the swank – much more “moderne” than modern, feels like it might have been around since 1940’s. Some rooms have massive windows that open(!) onto Central park views. Kingside restaurant is as cool as Midtown gets, but The Roof is where the real buzz happens.
