New York City’s former Buckingham Hotel has reopened as the Quin with shiny, design-driven interiors in a prewar building two blocks from Central Park.

Why Go: The Quin occupies 17 stories of prime Midtown Manhattan real estate at the corner of Sixth Avenue and 57th Street. Central Park is two blocks north and Carnegie Hall is one block east. On the inside, the 1926 building is fitted with luxurious materials throughout, from the gold leaf and hammered metal on the ceiling to the leather-wrapped columns and Italian white-marble floors. Dux-brand beds fitted with Sferra linens deliver optimum comfort.

What to Expect: Because of the 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.

How to Get There: The Quin’s Mercedes Car Service transfers guests to JFK International Airport in about 45 minutes. (www.thequinhotel.com)
