Street sophistication are the first words that come into mind when one walks into the lobby off the Quin Hotel at 57th and 6th. Surrounding the lobby are hand painted D'Angelico Guitars by 13 of the most recent artists who have exhibited at the Quin through the Quin Arts Program. Bringing together street art and tasteful elegance creates a luxury lifestyle hotel blocks away from Central Park.
Much like the lobby, all the rooms have walls adorned with colorful artwork from well known street artists in NYC. The artwork compliments the spaciousness and Swedish furniture around the room. All the beds in the hotel are DUX beds which are a nice place to be reposed for the evening. But one of the best things about the rooms is the rain shower in the bathroom. If you're tired from a workout in the hotel gym or after walking around Central Park all day, a rain shower is just what the doctor ordered for those tired muscles. If you are able to swing getting one of the premiere suites at the Quin, do it. All suites come with their own private balcony that give you a great view straight into Central Park through 6th Ave. Also if you’re feeling fancy pick up your hotel phone and give a call directly to a personal shopper at Bergdorf Goodman and/or Tiffany & Co. Talk about shopping with convenience.
New York has some of the best restaurants in the world. But if you are looking for a restaurant with a low key finesse, check out The Wayfarer, right off the lobby. This refined American cuisine restaurant is perfect for a romantic meal or for a night out with friends. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner to both hotel guests and New Yorkers alike, you will have no trouble finding something that will fit your fancy for all meals. With breakfast being the most important meal of the day start it off with the greek yogurt and granola bowl in your hotel suite while sipping Nespresso® (complimentary machines in every room) and taking in the city from your private balcony. For dinner, indulge in the seared scallops and smoked pork belly main entree, paired to perfection with quail eggs, parsnips and brussel sprouts.
The Quin Hotel received its name from the owners wanting their guests to experience the “quintessential New York lifestyle”. For a majority of New Yorkers that ‘quintessential lifestyle’ is a 5th floor walk-up with a view into an alley; at the Quin you get a peek into how the upper crust of society experiences Manhattan. And trust us, it’s very hard to go back to that 5th floor walk up after a night at the Quin.
TIME OUT TIP: Part of being a true New Yorker is having a regular bar, and a bartender bestie to boot. So make yourself a regular at the craft beer bar Valhalla. Less than a 15 minute walk from the hotel, Valhalla has a low-key vibe with a solid microbrew selection. It also helps that their kitchen is open till 2am if you have the late night munchies.
