Two soon-to-open New York hotels with ‘adjoining rooms,' so to speak
In bustling manhattan, you can soon choose from two luxury hotels in the same block of a prime Midtown location. This fall, both the 208-room Quin and the 240-room Viceroy New York are scheduled to debut on West 57th Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues, convenient to top attractions.
Located at the corner of Sixth and West 57th, the Quin is a reimagining and refashioning of the venerable Buckingham Hotel, where some of the 20th century's most noted musicians and painters once lived, including pianist Ignacy Jan Paderewski and artist Georgia O'Keeffe. Across the street and just a few doors down, the Viceroy stands out in the neighborhood with a facade that mixes classic modern elements with a bold, traditional grid of black brick and steel.
Though they'll compete head to head, the two properties share many other similarities besides locale, including visually striking lobbies; rooms with deluxe touches such as Sferra bed linens and the latest high-tech gadgetry; fitness centers featuring Technogym exercise equipment; and restaurants operated in partnership with well-known local restaurateurs. At the Quin, the Wayfarer will focus on regional seafood; at the Viceroy, Kingside will serve New American dishes.
