Luxury hospitality group Aman will open its highly-anticipated New York hotel later this year. 

It will be housed inside the 26-storey Crown Building, a Manhattan icon built in 1921 and designed by Warren & Wetmore, the architects behind some of the city’s most famous buildings including the Hemsley Building and Grand Central Station. 

The building, located on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street, overlooks Central Park and has undergone significant restoration works, led by Jean Michel Gathy of Denniston Architecture. 

Scheduled to open on August 2, the new hotel will provide an ‘invitation to switch off from the outside world’, offering 83 suites, 22 branded residences, restaurants, a jazz club, relaxation and social spaces, and a spa.

The guest suites will feature oval soaking tubs and rain showers

Occupying three storeys across 2,300sqm, the flagship spa has been described as ‘the most comprehensive realisation of Aman’s wellness philosophy in the western hemisphere.’ 

It will take an all-encompassing approach to rejuvenation and wellness, with several treatment rooms and a ‘full spectrum of wellness-enhancing facilities’ centred around a 20m indoor swimming pool, equipped with fire pits and day beds. 

Two Spa Houses, available for private hire, will feature double treatment rooms, hammams, banyas and private outdoor terraces with hot and cold plunge pools. 

The wellness experience will extend into the guest suites, which will be equipped with oversized soaking bathtubs and marble rain showers.

Each room will have its own mural inspired by a 16th-century masterpiece by Japanese artist Hasegawa Tōhaku

Inspired by the airy architecture of Aman’s properties in South-East Asia, the suites will also feature large windows offering dynamic views, functioning fireplaces and double vanities, while organic and natural materials 

Each suite will also have its own large-scale mural created by contemporary Japanese artist Ryoko Adachi and inspired by Shōrin-zu byōbu (Pine Trees), a 16th-century masterpiece by Japanese artist Hasegawa Tōhaku.
