About Warwick New York Hotel
Built in the 1920s, the Warwick New York Hotel offers luxury lodgings in Midtown, just steps from some of the city’s most beloved sights and attractions. With the Museum of Modern Art and the Ziegfeld Theater across the street, and Broadway, Carnegie Hall, Central Park and Rockefeller Center a short walk away, guests are perfectly positioned for sight-seeing or nights on the town.
Once a favorite of James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor, Elvis Presley and the Beatles, the Warwick New York Hotel is now patronized by the jet-set, visiting dignitaries and vacationers seeking the class and glamour of old New York. Guests are transported from tourist-jammed Sixth Avenue into a European-style lobby with marble floors, dark wood accents and a gilded, golden chandelier. For a quick taste of the old school life, head directly to Randolph’s Bar and Lounge, which has long been one of New York’s most beloved watering holes.
Large guest rooms are decorated in light shades with vintage accents and heavy draping, creating a cloistered retreat from the busy city streets. All rooms include pillow-top bedding, flat-screen televisions, marble bathrooms and oversize desks. Suites are decorated in grand style, giving guests elegant surroundings with views that extend to the Hudson River. The Suite of the Stars is a must-see for any true fan of glamorous days-gone-by or traveler making an extended visit. Formerly the home of the legendary actor Cary Grant, who lived in the Warwick for 12 years, it is now a 1,200-square-foot residence suite with two oversize bedrooms, living and dining rooms, a wraparound terrace, a whirlpool tub and sauna, and enough space to accommodate private receptions of up to 50 people.
Did you know?
The Warwick New York Hotel was commissioned by publishing tycoon William Randolph Hearst in 1926 as a gift for his longtime mistress, actress Marion Davies.
Hearst intentionally built the hotel across the street from the Ziegfeld Theater so he and Davies would have a convenient place to host Hollywood friends when they were in town.
The hotel restaurant, Murals on 54, displays the murals of American artist Dean Cornwell.
Travelers and families seeking luxury accommodations with historic value won’t want to pass Warwick New York Hotel by. Those in town for business will appreciate the Warwick’s services, and have access to lounges and meeting spots sure to impress colleagues. Upgraded suites are ideal for visitors making an extended stay in the city.
