“The hotel enjoys a super-central location in the Big Apple, one the best of all hotels in Manhattan. Located in a corner building on 5th Avenue at 41st Street in midtown Manhattan, the hotel is directly across the street from the main branch of the New York Public Library, one of the city’s grand landmarks. The hotel is within walking distance to iconic New York attractions, like Times Square, Grand Central Station, the Empire State Building, the Theater District, the Rockefeller Center, and the fashionable 5th Avenue shopping.
The hotel’s 485 Fifth Avenue location has a storied history in fashion and retail. Built during the great era of Manhattan department stores, it was the largest and last of the Rogers, Peet & Co. department stores, later becoming the Tommy Hilfiger global headquarters before its transformation into the Andaz 5th Avenue hotel.
The discrete and somewhat unremarkable entrance to the hotel is marked by bronze-colored doors and located on 41st Street, between 5th Avenue and Madison Avenue. Once inside, guests are welcomed in the hotel lobby’s trendy decor, which was created renowned designer Tony Chi and feels more like an upscale lounge than the transactional center of a hotel. Natural materials such as black- and white-washed poplar and rich grey basalt provide a counterpoint to the sheen of white lacquer finishes and marquis lighting.”
