A modern boutique hotel with mid-century inflections, the 208-room Quin has all the amenities and attributes for a luxury Midtown Manhattan stay. Located on 57th Street at Sixth Avenue, two blocks from Central Park, the hotel puts you within walking distance or a quick subway ride from most of New York's major sights. It ticks all of the important boxes for a luxury hotel: Rooms are modern and luxurious, the downstairs restaurant and bar is a popular local spot, and the large fitness center can arrange for personal training sessions. Additionally, the hotel goes above and beyond to offer personalized concierge service with its Attaché program (concierges here are described as "lifestyle curators"), and each room's phone has a button that connects to a Bergdorf Goodman personal shopper.
Mid-century modern Midtown hotel with feet in both the business and art worlds
Despite its ideal location for both tourists and business travelers, the Quin goes out of its way to be more than just another Midtown hotel. The walls act as a gallery space, displaying art collections selected by a local curator and, in the lobby, a rotating exhibition on the 15-foot video art wall; the hotel also has an artist-in-residence program and regularly hosts art events. The cigar-club-inspired Wayfarer restaurant attracts a steady stream of businesspeople, well-heeled locals, and tourists to its gourmet fresh seafood and New York classics throughout the day.
From its perch on the corner of 57th Street and Sixth Avenue, the Quin is perfectly situated for getting almost anywhere in Manhattan, but the immediate neighborhood has plenty to offer, too. Central Park is two blocks away, the designer shops of Fifth Avenue one block, MoMA four blocks, and Carnegie Hall around the corner. Nearly any subway line is within walking distance, putting the rest of the city just a short train ride away. Fifty-seventh is a big street, with lots of car and pedestrian traffic, but the atmosphere is fitting for tourists who want to feel like they're in the heart of the City That Never Sleeps.
Mid-century style with thoughtful modern amenities
Rooms at the Quin are modern, with some mid-century flair, and small, but packed with amenities. Understated designer linens top comfortable designer beds, next to which sit tablets that act as control panels for lighting, temperature, music, and room service. Many rooms have a couch or chair that looks like it walked off the Mad Men set, and all have curated minibars, Nespresso machines, and umbrellas to borrow. Sleek stone-tiled bathrooms have TOTO fixtures, walk-in rainfall showers, and bath products by Fresh. Some guests report having issues with the air conditioners -- due to noise, usefulness, or both -- and lower-floor rooms on the street side are bound to get some traffic noise. Higher floor rooms, though, have views of the surrounding cityscape and rooftops.
Full-service luxury hotel with all-day restaurant and personalized concierge service
In addition to a trendy all-day restaurant and bar, the hotel offers 24-hour room service and a modern fitness center that can arrange private training or yoga sessions. A relaxed sitting area known as the Drawing Room, just off the natural-light-filled lobby, has iMacs available for guests to use, and each room's telephone has a button that connects directly to a Bergdorf Goodman personal shopper. The hotel's signature Attaché concierges can recommend and arrange any experience, from getting reservations at booked-up restaurants to arranging private gallery tours. Each guest has a personally assigned Attaché who will reach out in advance of the stay. There is no full-service spa, but the Quin is happy to book treatments at the nearby Red Door Spa.
