The Whitby Hotel
Scale of 90-100
Contemporary boutique property featuring Kit Kemp’s imaginative and idiosyncratic style set near Rockefeller Center and Central Park. The 86 individually decorated rooms and suites have floor-to-ceiling windows, flamboyant color schemes and granite or marble baths with freestanding tubs, dual vanities and walk-in showers; some offer private terraces and separate living rooms. The Whitby Bar & Restaurant includes a 30-foot pewter bar, colorful banquettes and an orangery, a conservatory-style dining area with a vaulted ceiling. Amenities include a large 130-seat screening room, a drawing room with a fireplace, tall bookshelves and honor bar, and a fully equipped gym (personal trainers available).

Artful design; atmospheric restaurant; delightful staff; remarkably tranquil atmosphere (given the hotel's Midtown location).
The entrance is surprisingly low-key, to the point that we almost missed it.
