Two words describe The Tuscany - A St Giles Hotel: comfort and convenience. Just like it’s sister hotel The Court, the Tuscany was once a residential hotel, which has been housing the upper crust of society since 1928 (Marilyn Monroe had a permanent residence in the building). If you are looking for a hotel that provides you with all the amenities and a dash of style, look no further than the Tuscany.
Once you have checked in, you may not find a reason to leave. First, it has oodles of space - a true luxury in Manhattan hotels. First things first: drop your bags jump on the bed (to take a quick catnap that is). You will be enveloped by the feather down pillows and and silky soft sheets for a sleep to remember. Rooms are stocked with posh Molton Brown bath products, fluffy towels and cozy bathrobes. While enjoying the daily complimentary morning coffee in the lobby, make sure to melt into one of the many leather armchairs before heading out for a busy day in the city.
Looking for a night on the town? Start the party early at the hotel’s restaurant Sushi Roxx. Not only will you be able to enjoy some incredible sushi, but you get a show along with your meal. All the waiters and waitress are trained singers and and dancers who give diners a fun experience while they are dining. Make sure to start your meal off with avocado tempura (the ‘new’ avocado fries), then move on to the one of Sushi Roxx’s signature rolls, the Apollo Creed — a spicy scallop roll, with avocado, shiso leaf, and tobiko; then drizzled with eel sauce. If you have enough room, polish your meal off with the housemade chocolate gelato. And yes, it is exactly as good as it sounds.
TIME OUT TIP: For New Yorkers brunching on the weekend (or any day for that matter) is a lifestyle. To get that quintessential NYC brunch experience head on over to Penelope NYC, a 9 minute walk from the hotel. Have the “Punkin’ Waffles” in the morning, then head back for the mac’ n’ cheese later in the day for round two. Brunch is at it’s best all day.
