The Fifth Avenue Hotel welcomes travelers to an enchanting experience in the heart of Manhattan. At the northwest corner of Fifth Avenue and 28th Street, The Fifth reflects the collaboration of some of the most creative minds in design, art, gastronomy and hospitality, merging the city’s heritage with its future. Pioneering a singular hospitality experience offering the highest level of luxury and service that inspires exploration, fascination, and wonder, The Fifth charts its own course, encouraging guests to slow down and fully engage with their surroundings.

Inspired by the history of the neighborhood and heritage of the building, Martin Brudnizki Design Studio created an aesthetic that embraces Bohemian romanticism, the glamour of the Gilded Age, and contemporary intrigue. Paying homage to the legacy and lifestyle of those who once lived on Fifth Avenue, the design scheme offers a distinctly residential vision that immerses guests in an atmosphere that suggests a home away from home. Entering the lobby with a double-height ceiling, guests discover walls paneled with faceted antique mirrors, marble floors, grand arched windows, and two cabinets of curiosities. The focal point is a large-scale tapestry by artist Pae White, titled Bugz & Drugs, unique commission that rewards close inspection. The art and objets may remind you of being in the home of a global traveler. The Fifth is home to a vast collection of artifacts that offers many points of view—high-end works rub shoulders with flea market and travel finds, creating a cross-cultural dialog that is imaginative and intimate. The photography collection includes distinguished works by William Klein, Gordon Parks and Melvin Sokolsky and others.

The hotel’s suites and guestrooms showcase a whimsical and rich color palette of garden greens, buttercup yellow and peony pink. Bold patterns pleasantly jostle each other in a way that feels harmonious and fun, juxtaposing modernity with the classic finishings. Pagoda-style table lamps, custom wardrobes inspired by traditional Chinese cabinets, antique side tables inlaid with mother of pearl, Murano glass chandeliers, and twinkling-star-like ceiling lights envelope guests in an exotic reverie. The designers have infused the hotel with a highly textural palette–from the Mansion’s warm pink corridors to the tower halls clad in a raucous yellow bestiary wallpaper, and elevator lobbies that are wrapped sumptuously in ruched rose-colored silk, perfectly pleated by master craftsmen from Paris.

Grand hospitality at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 28th Street

Steeped in history, The Fifth is composed of The Mansion, a historic landmark designed by storied architecture firm McKim, Mead & White, and The Tower, a striking new 24-story glass tower designed by Perkins Eastman and PBDW Architects. The site was once the home and carriage house of Ms. Charlotte Goodridge, a leading figure in Manhattan’s Gilded Age society. Throughout the late 19th century, the site was synonymous with her infamous receptions and musicals, much-anticipated highlights of New York’s social season. In 1907, her mansion was sold, and a new vision emerged: a magnificent five-story Renaissance-style palazzo by McKim, Mead & White. This Mansion sustained a meticulous, full-scale renovation under the guidance of Perkins Eastman, restoring the brick and limestone building to its former grandeur.

A Culinary Institution

 The Fifth is an outstanding gastronomic destination with restaurants and bars under the direction of James Beard Award-winning Chef Andrew Carmellini. The hotel’s signature restaurant, Café Carmellini, distills Chef Carmellini’s 30-year career cooking in New York City into an extraordinary dining experience as his food marries Italian and French cooking into a classic New York feel and modern vibe. Chef Carmellini’s menu draws on many sources of inspiration, from the city he loves to a family history rich with hospitality and a passion for food. The main dining room imbues the landmark building’s original neoclassical architecture with maximalist style, featuring a welcoming kitchen, intimate bar, two towering sculptural trees, and private balconies creating tête-á-tête dining experiences with a view of the action.

Led by Bar Director and longtime industry veteran Darryl Chan, The Portrait Bar is an urbane, wood- paneled retreat where guests can enjoy sophisticated cocktails and snack on elevated bar fare by a carved stone fireplace. In this rich, intimate space, dark wood paneling holds an exceptional art collection which is more than just a collection of portraits—paintings, photographs, drawings and sculptures—it is a collection of lives and stories. Chan’s cocktail list is a mix of modern and classic variations that evoke a sense of place. The menu is inspired by a medley of travels and offers a fun yet centered taste of the world.

The Fifth also offers some of New York City’s most sought-after venues for special events and celebrations. Reminiscent of the Gilded Age, The Ballroom offers 2,573 sq. ft. of space featuring original architectural detailing, coffered ceilings and a stunning color palette with blue and gold accents.
