Manhattan’s bustling accommodation scene has a new gem that’s quickly rising the popularity charts, the Park Lane New York hotel, which recently debuted from a stunning, major makeover.

The Park Lane New York, led by popular Managing Director Prince A. Sanders, rises 47 stories into the New York skyline and is situated just steps away from Central Park.

Managed by Highgate, a leading hospitality investment and management company, the 47-story property features 610 rooms – nearly half of which provide sweeping park-facing views with the remaining rooms featuring views of the Manhattan skyline.

Entrusted with reawakening the spirit of the iconic hotel, global design agency Yabu Pushelberg embarked on a total redesign of the building, reinvigorating the interiors to create an entirely new space for guests to enjoy – while mindfully restoring the existing architectural details of the historic building, a unique example of legendary Emery Roth and Sons’ trademark post-war style.

Complementing the hotel’s rebirth, Scott Sartiano, hospitality magnate and founder of The Sartiano Group who’s behind Manhattan’s new coveted private members club, Zero Bond – concepted Park Lane’s food and beverage program, providing a modern approach to hotel dining and imbibing.

In partnership with Highgate, Scott and his team offer three unique venues: Rose Lane, an 80-seat lobby bar with an outdoor promenade; Harry’s New York Bar, an intimate restaurant on the hotel’s second floor; and Darling, Central Park South’s only rooftop lounge atop the hotel. Perched on the 47th floor, the exclusive cocktail bar will treat guests to the ultimate New York City experience against the backdrop of Manhattan’s sprawling skyline and park.
