Experience Sophisticated Luxury at the WestHouse Hotel

When you enter the doors of 201 West 55th Street in New York, you may feel as if you’ve just entered a distinguished gentleman’s town house, but it’s actually the lobby of the WestHouse Hotel. Touches of 1920s Art Deco are imbued throughout the hotel’s elegant decor, thanks to the award-winning design firm Jeffrey Beers International. Take a deep breath and smell the intoxicating custom scent by 12.29 Scent. Upon check in you’ll see a wall of antique keys collected just for the hotel.

Once you’re in your bedroom or suite, get ready to be treated to a number of luxurious amenities that will make you feel right at home. SFERRA created the soft 400 thread-count linens, and if you’re lucky enough to get a suite with a bed outfitted by Sleep Studio, you’ll be able to custom control your mattress so you can sit up and read while your partner gets a restful sleep lying down next to you. Custom-made DayNa Decker bath and body products fill the bathroom, so you can take a relaxing bath before a restful night’s sleep. Catch up on the latest sports scores or news on the 46” Samsung high-definition LED televisions in your room. Need help? The Intelity touch screen bedside controls allow you to control your music or contact guest services for any extra things you may need. If you book one of the 16 suites that have terraces overlooking Midtown for three nights, you’ll be treated to a $500 Net-a-Porter gift card.

If you need to step out of your room, head upstairs to the Terrace, where you can enjoy afternoon tea, charcuterie and wine before you head out to dinner, or a full breakfast before you begin your day. So next time you’re looking for a sophisticated and stylish home away from home, check out the WestHouse. You’ll probably never want to leave.
