    Rooms 86 /Architecture Stonehill & Taylor /Interior Design Kit Kemp /The Original Kit Kemp

    Set in the pulsing Manhattan midtown scene and boldly conceived by the ever-inspired design doyenne Kit Kemp, The Whitby is Firmdale Hotels’ second property in New York, and a fitting creative bookend to its hugely popular Crosby Street Hotel’s in the heart of SoHo. Situated on West 56th Street at 5th Avenue, The Whitby is surrounded by international designer shops, world-class department stores, restaurants, galleries, and museums, with Central Park and Broadway just a short walk away. Yet your most memorable New York City moments may very well be experienced inside the hotel where 86 individually styled bedrooms and suites are set over 16 floors, with many offering large private terraces (a rarity in New York) and all featuring Kemp’s award-winning luxurious, contemporary style and world-renowned innovative mix of color, pattern, texture, and art. Bathrooms are beautifully finished in marble or granite, with the bedrooms and suites showcasing the city through floor-to-ceiling windows. The entire top floor is dedicated to The Whitby Suite, a spectacular two-bedroom headline setting with spacious, furnished terraces. While the private worlds of The Whitby beguile, the public ones prove once again that a Firmdale property is as much a social gathering place among movers, shakers, and creatives as it is a hotel. Here, The Whitby Bar, a drawing room, an orangery and courtyard, as well as several stylish private-event rooms and a 130-seat state-of-the-art cinema, draw in stars that shine bright in Firmdale’s incomparable orbit.
