Wayfarer exclusive: inside Hilton’s luxurious Conrad New York Midtown hotel

151 W 54th Street, New York, New York, 10019, USA

by James Wilkinson

It has been three and a half years since Hilton debuted the 54-floor, 562-suite Conrad New York Midtown hotel and as the Big Apple has roared back to life, the property has never been more popular.

The Conrad New York Midtown is one of the city’s only all-suite hotels and following a major renovation in 2019, it has an interior akin to luxurious Manhattan homes rather than classic hotel rooms.

Major highlights of the hotel are the penthouse, a two-story, two-bedroom suite which features wrap-around views of Central Park and Manhattan, a fireplace and an interior inspired soon-to-reopen Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), and Dabble, an impressive new signature dining and cocktail destination from Executive Chef Sani Hebaj that’s set to be popular which visitors and locals alike.

To find out more about the all-suite hotel, WAYFARER Host and Editor-In-Chief, James Gregory Wilkinson, spoke exclusively to Conrad New York Midtown General Manager, Boris Guerov.

What’s your x-factor at the hotel?

The hotel’s showstopper suite, the Atrium, has a separate bedroom and a living room with stunning glass windows on three walls and the ceiling definitely has the x-factor.

Our entry level suites start at a spacious 700 square feet.

Favorite things to do in the area, like exploring Central Park and catching a show?
