The Aman New York Is A Sanctuary in Midtown

With two restaurants and a 25,000-square-foot spa you could while away a whole weekend without leaving



The atrium at Aman New York features wooden screens and open fire and water features.


Overlooking Bergdorf Goodman in midtown Manhattan, a stiletto’s throw from Central Park and the flagship stores of Madison Avenue, the sleek Aman New York is housed in the landmark, century-old Beaux-Arts Crown Building. You enter via a 14th-floor double-height atrium in the hotel, where open fire and water features, wooden screens and ikebana-style flower arrangements transport you away from the city and into the middle of Japan. There are two dining rooms: Arva, offering haute Italian fare, and Nama, a Japanese restaurant serving charcoal grilled fish, Wagyu dishes plus toro, king crab and whatever the chef dreams up for the omakase counter. You really could while away a whole weekend without leaving, luxuriating in the 25,000-square-foot spa and fitness center across three floors, enjoying massages, a steam room or sauna between dips in the 65-foot-long pool, before retiring to one of the 83 suites and throwing on a Frette robe. Inside, the walls feature ink-painted murals, panels dividing the serene spaces and egg-shaped bathtubs begging to be filled—decadently designed yet exquisitely refined. aman.com/hotels/aman-new-york.
