We get word that opening day of the New York Edition Hotel in the Met-Life Clock Tower building on Madison Square Park (5 Madison Avenue) will open for guests on Monday May 11th. The luxury hotel was conceived by Ian Schrager in a partnership with Marriott International and there are other Edition hotels in London, Istanbul, Miami Beach, with more planned for marquis cities globally in 2016-2018.
The 41-floor tower has 273 guest rooms, a restaurant, a lobby bar, a fitness center and spa. A quick check on prices suggest rooms will range from $500 for a guest room up to $1200 for a suite.
The restaurant will be called Social on Madison, with restaurateur Stephen Starr and Gordon Ramsay protege Chef Jason Atherton. (More on this restaurant soon.)
The hotel is located on Madison Avenue at 24th Street right across from Madison Square Park and reservations can be made online at www.editionhotels.com/new-york/the-hotel.
