FrontRunners: Midtown Makeover

<< Back to Robb Report, May 2014

Opened in November, the Quin (www.quinhotelnyc.com) sits on a flourishing block of Manhattan’s West 57th Street, across from the new Viceroy New York and steps from the future Park Hyatt New York. But the hotel—which in its past life as the Buckingham Hotel hosted such artists as Georgia O’Keeffe and Marc Chagall—stands out from its neighbors for both its historic cachet and its modern-day glamour. The New York–based firm Perkins Eastman filled the public areas and 208 guest rooms with rich materials and bespoke details that include leather-covered drawer handles, blown-glass chandeliers, and custom-designed umbrellas by the Swedish painter Daniel Egnéus. Most impressive, however, are the Quin’s signature services, which range from an exclusive partnership with Bergdorf Goodman to concierges who can arrange after-hour tours of the city’s museums and galleries.
