Not content with simply unveiling the stunner that is its new Roche Bobois-designed, 1,900 sq ft, two (king-sized) bedroom Presidential Suite, The Langham New York, Fifth Avenue has pulled out all the stops to ensure it goes above and beyond – including the option of dining out (well, in) on a Michelin-starred meal in the comfort of your own suite.
Yes, that’s right: thanks to a partnership with The Langham’s award-winning restaurant, Ai Fiori (part of chef Michael White’s Altameara Group), the privileged few can combine the best of both worlds, checking in to the expansive luxury of the new suite before choosing from the full Ai Fiori menu, or opting for the in-room private chef experience – perfect for an intimate dinner party (the suite also boasts a Michael White-curated pantry and mini bar to tide one over between exquisite meals).
We understand why you may not want to leave the suite; with the full Roche Bobois treatment, it’s a masterful blend of art, form and function. With the central theme of ‘elevation’ (the Presidential Suite is literally the ‘top suite’ of the hotel), the suite boasts expansive views of the surrounding skyscrapers and higher ceilings than the rest of the building. Décor is both sleek and plush; modern and full of fabulous details.
Decadent linens are imported from Italy and classic Roche Bobois furniture pieces feature throughout, including the the lush purple Illusion sofa; the mid-century-inspired Echoes armchair; and the iconic Fleur de Fer console table. And, of course, there’s the kitchen: state-of-the-art Miele appliances, flatware by Christofle, and china and glassware by L’Objet. And the crowning glory – floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Empire State Building.
Elsewhere, a new San Francisco outpost of The Langham designed by Renzo Piano is slated for launch in 2022, while The Langham Boston is set to undergo a renovation, details of which are to be confirmed.
