New York City’s former Buckingham Hotel has reopened as the wonderful Quin with shiny, design-driven interiors in a prewar building two blocks from Central Park.
Located on the corner of 57th and 6th Avenue, The Quin provides the ultimate location to visit Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Fifth Avenue shopping and, of course, Central Park. The modern décor reflects a timeless elegance throughout all aspects of the hotel, from the guest rooms to the workout center. Plus, the Attaches on property will design and plan the perfect individualized itinerary for your stay in NYC. Need tickets to the US Open or a sold-out Broadway show? The Quin can handle it all.
Because of The Quin, New York’s historic footprint, most of the 208 rooms aren’t large, but clean lines and built-in furnishings maximize space. There is a bit more room in the 27 corner suites, two specialty suites with wraparound balconies, and a three-story penthouse with Central Park views. Common areas include a fitness center, spa, drawing room, and gallery. The Wayfarer American-grill restaurant specializes in regional seafood and has a sophisticated bar on the second floor.
Luxe, cozy rooms have Italian linens and Nespresso machines, plus snack bars, flat-screen TVs and free WiFi. Suites add separate living and dining areas and wrap-around terraces; some offer city views. In-room dining is available 24/7.
Amenities include a personal attache and a 24-hour fitness center. There’s also a fine-dining seafood restaurant with an elegant cocktail bar, and a drawing room off the lobby that’s equipped with Apple devices.
Exuding sophistication in an environment that is warm, intimate and nurturing, even the most discerning guest will return again and again at the “quintessential New York Hotel”.
