Italian New York hotel offers different view of Big Apple

Press release januar 29, 2009 Tourism

The Michelangelo Hotel is the perfect antidote to bustling New York. Right in the heart of all the action, the only European boutique hotel in midtown Manhattan is something completely different.

The Michelangelo Hotel, New York is the biggest attraction in the Starhotels 19-strong luxury chain of 4-star hotels and is one of the only two outside Italy.

Scandinavians in New York are a large part of the hotel's clientele and appreciate the hotel for its multi-lingual concierge service and its perfect location. In the middle of New York's buzz, the Michelangelo Hotel is a stone's throw from the shops of 5th Avenue, the theatres of Broadway, Times Square, Central Park and a huge list of other attractions.

The stress and hustle of the city melt away as soon as one enters the Michelangelo, however. For this reason, the hotel's Lobby Lounge is as popular with lunching New Yorkers as it is with international visitors.

New York hotels don't come more special, as the Michelangelo manages to be both sumptuously designed and fitted, but without pretension or stuffiness. European artwork adorns public and private spaces, Italian woodwork features authentic Renaissance designs and fine imported fabrics are used throughout, including silk and velvet.

The same qualities extend to the service at the Michelangelo: the modern 24-hour fitness suite and reception's aptitude for snapping up the best Broadway tickets contrast perfectly with the twice-daily housekeeping, including turndown Baci chocolates, and the complimentary morning limousine service to Wall Street.

Most guestrooms at the Michelangelo Hotel include marble foyer, sitting area, king size bed, two television sets, full-length mirror and mini-bar. The guestrooms are among the largest in New York, averaging 475 square feet.

The Michelangelo Hotel has been placed on the 'Gold List' for the "Best Places to Stay in the Whole World" by Condé Nast Traveler and is recognised by Travel & Leisure Magazine as one of the top 500 'Greatest Hotels of the World'.

The hotel's website guarantees to offer the best prices for its rooms, and it also offers an invaluable guide to the hotel and its services. For more information, please visit
