AAA Inspector Notes
Understatement and refined Asian style come together in warm woods, soft lighting and tailored symmetry here. Service is personal and attentive. The upscale lounge has live jazz performances nightly. The Japanese-style mood of blissful serenity continues from the public spaces into the guest rooms, aided by noise canceling windows that completely mute the Midtown traffic noise – all the while offering a majestic Park Avenue view. Fabrics are soft to the touch and the furniture is of a thoughtful, high design that pleases the senses. There is traditional Japanese dining and service in Hakubai, with seasonal menus.
