Take a peek at the brand-new Virgin Hotels New York City
Virgin Hotels has officially opened the doors of its brand-new hotel in New York City – be one of the first to peek inside.
Located on the northwest corner of 29th Street and Broadway, right in the heart of Manhattan, Virgin Hotels New York City is a new-build property with 460 Chambers. It also has plenty of meeting spaces and restaurants, including a rooftop pool and bar. There’s nowhere else in the city quite like it.
“We've wanted to open a hotel in New York City since Virgin Atlantic first flew here in 1984,” Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group, said. “We have had so many milestones in this city, from opening America's biggest record store to driving a tank through Times Square to lighting up the Empire State Building. I'm looking forward to even more adventures in the city and having a place to call home at the end of the day. I'm so proud of the amazing team behind Virgin Hotels New York, they have created something beyond my wildest dreams. Can't wait to show you all!”
James Bermingham, CEO of Virgin Hotels, added: “New York City is the perfect home for Virgin Hotels. Our brand is bold, proud, and playful, and so are New Yorkers. As our first hotel in New York City, we wanted to create a concept that was unique yet thoughtful, fusing together the local landscape with the spirit of Virgin. We teamed up with incredible partners to bring the overall design, culinary concepts and programming to life, and we're looking forward to becoming one of the most sought-after hotels around.”
Places to rest
With 460 Chambers, Suites and Penthouses across 39 storeys, Virgin Hotels New York City has an incredible viewpoint across the city. All of the Chambers feature floor-to-ceiling windows, with certain Chambers offering unparalleled views of the Empire State Building, the New Year’s Eve Ball Drop, and Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The Chambers all feature Virgin Hotels’ signature layout with two distinct spaces: The Dressing Room, with a full vanity desk, a closet for two, and an extra-large shower with a bench; and The Lounge, with convenient amenities for work and play, including Virgin Hotels’ patented ergonomic lounge bed, a red SMEG mini-fridge stocked with street-priced comforts, a smart TV, a yoga mat, and a café worktable. Guests will also find sensor-activated lighting that automatically illuminates when they walk by, and pet-friendly amenities for any companions joining the stay.
Drinks and dining
Virgin Hotels New York City offers multiple dining options on the third and fourth floors. Everdene is a sprawling 4,000 square foot dining and drinking venue, offering a spontaneous and playful scene with sweeping views of the Big Apple. It occupies the entire third floor of the hotel, and offers menus serving seasonally driven dishes, shareable plates, and speciality cocktails.
Whether attending an art show in the Lounge, drinking a coffee while working in the Library, or taking an outdoor yoga class in The Conservatory, there is truly something for everyone. The fourth floor is also home to the hotel's signature, fine dining restaurant concept, encompassing immersive culinary experiences inspired by Italian and Latin cuisine, which will open in the coming months.
The Pool Club, on the fourth floor, combines indoor and outdoor space, and is available exclusively to overnight guests. Take a dip in the heated swimming pool, or indulge in a cocktail or delicious nibbles against the backdrop of the Empire State Building. The Pool Club is the perfect respite from the city that never sleeps, with a seasonal deck and indoor lounge to relax in.
