With a rich heritage leading back to the grandeur of the 19th century and a prime location on Madison Avenue at 50th Street, The New York Palace, one of the Dorchester Collection, maintains a reputation for exceptional quality and impeccable service. With the landmark courtyard of The Villard mansion providing a regal entrance to the majestic lobby and the spectacular 55-story Tower, The Palace has become an icon of truly grand proportion.

With King-bedded and Double rooms measuring in excess of 400-sq. ft., Junior Suites more than 600-sq. ft. , and one- and two-bedroom Corner Suites exceeding 1,170 and 1570-sq. ft., Tower guests can truly unwind in some of the city’s most spacious accommodations.
Regal visitors can indulge with a stay in the Royal Suite, reflecting the grandeur of classic French culture and style, from Kings Louis XV to XVI. Its Rococo rooms are works of art with elegant and ornate furniture, small sculptures, ornamental mirrors, and complementing architecture, gold leaf reliefs, and bright silk covered walls. This 3-bedroom palatial residential-style suite is the hotel’s grandest and offers his and hers bathrooms in the master bedroom. Hers features an oversized marble soaking tub set off with gold silk drapes and Grecian columns, while his offers an antique barber chair perfect for a gentleman’s shave.

Housed within the sumptuous and ornate interiors of the 1882 Villard Mansion, 21st century culinary history is being made.

When dining at GILT, guests select from a three-course prix fixe menu, the five-course tasting menu or put themselves completely in the hands of the chef and the sommelier for the Grand Seven Course Tasting Menu. Noted for its exceptional wine list, GILT maintains an 8,000 bottle cellar and offers over twenty wines by the glass.
