Our Take:

The Whitby Hotel is the brand new Firmdale property and the second New York location for this iconic british chain of beautifully designed, boutique luxury properties. Located in midtown, it is a small hotel by New York standards, with only 86 rooms. Each room is uniquely designed by Kit Kemp, who is known for her bold colour schemes and interesting use of patterns. Every space in the hotel is colourful and unique, yet so well connected throughout. Guest rooms have floor to ceiling windows, reminiscent of it's sister property in Soho, The Crosby Street Hotel. A few rooms even feature their own private terrace.  The rooms are very spacious for a hotel in midtown New York. The location is amazing, on 56th between 5th and 6th avenue. It is near central park, tons of restaurants, museums and department stores. The restaurant on property is great, having a variety of options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The service at the property was outstanding. The Whitby hotel has a very laid-back environment. Overall, would definitely recommend.
