According to Aman, “its a new era for hospitality”, and this new era seems to be all about impecable branding, colour coordination and striking aesthetics. With a particularly strong focus on design, this luxurious stay in Manhattan is nestled in the iconic Crown Building, which has been given a new lease on life. With a flagship spa and a spanning garden terrace, no rooftop exudes the same level of sophistication as Aman’s, and no suites feel as curated as those the hotel offers.

Nine Orchard

Tucked into a historic corner of Manhattan’s trendy Lower East Side neighborhood, Nine Orchard brings sophisticated style to the area’s gritty-chic vibe. Housed in a former grand bank, the 116-room hotel’s airy lobby bar buzzes under vaulted ceilings rivaling those of Grand Central. Superstar chef Ignacio Mattos heads the kitchen at Corner Bar, serving exceptional steak frites and other classics. While the minimalist tables charm, the wraparound bar’s 40 seats are choice. With full bellies, guests can tune into one of four custom radio stations curated by NYC-based DJ Stretch Armstrong, whose New York-inspired mixes nod to the hotel’s celebration of neighbourhood and city.

From tattoo parlors to low-key eateries, the LES pulses with urban cool. Nine Orchard plants travelers in the heart of it all, offering an insider’s perspective on one of the world’s greatest cities.

The Ned NoMad brings the landmark London hotel’s glamorous mix of members’ club and stylish stays to New York’s buzz. Housed in a Beaux Arts building formerly home to the NoMad Hotel, The Ned blends rich Art Deco design with traces of the original property, which means warm woods, plush upholstery, and marble floors. All in the name of the opulent aesthetic.

The 167 guest rooms retain wood paneling and clawfoot tubs from the NoMad Hotel days, and the Little Ned restaurant and bar channels 1920s style with leather booth seating and American classics. For now, the rooftop restaurant and bar are exclusive to members of The Ned’s Club, but the brand bets that perks like these will entice guests to join the member’s experience. Someone had to bring competition to London’s sibling, right?
