AAA Inspector Notes
This grand hotel is richly evocative of early New York. Museum-quality renovations to a classic 19th-century building include exceptional detailing, stylish restaurants, plush rooms and marble baths. Persian carpets draped around the reception area, mood lighting, custom furnishings and a post-modern spin on late 19th-century style artwork provide interesting contemporary interior touches. The painstaking renewal of the exposed structural elements, particularly the elaborately handcrafted wrought iron railings used as ornamentation, simultaneously rediscover and beautifully convey the majesty of a long-since forgotten "Roaring Nineties" New York. Edgar Allan Poe worked out of the hotel when the area was Manhattan's Theater District. A portrait of Poe and a raven adorn the lobby. There are two AAA 4-Diamond rated restaurants on site and two completely extraordinary penthouses which are designed for entertaining at the highest order.
