The New York Palace is a destination in itself. The original Villard Mansion is built around an iron-gated courtyard aglow with Florentine lanterns. Walk through the courtyard to enter the palatial lobby with sweeping staircases and Tiffany stained glass. The Madison Room and Bar serves American cuisine and cocktails in the mansion's original drawing room, with artwork and craftsmanship from the Gilded Age.
Enjoy cathedral views, too, from the state-of-the-art fitness center. Or indulge in a spa treatment like the Chardonnay Sugar Scrub at The Palace Spa, which offers a broad menu of signature massages, facials and body wraps. Refreshed and ready to take on the town? Reservations are strongly advised. Just ask the multilingual concierge team, members of the prestigious Les Clefs d'Or, to help with theater tickets and just about anything else you desire.
Your spacious guestroom is a tranquil retreat from the Midtown bustle. Beds are layered with luxury linens. Pour yourself a drink from the minibar, or order a full meal from the 24-hour room-service menu. Watch your favorite show on the plasma TV, which includes pay movies. You can check email via wireless or wired high-speed Internet access. Marble bathrooms feature luxurious amenities and plush terry bathrobes. The hotel provides evening turndown service and complimentary shoeshine upon request. Many rooms feature views of St. Patrick's Cathedral and the surrounding cityscape.
