Located in the heart of Manhattan, The Fifth Avenue Hotel is rooted in the history of the city while shaping its future. A beautifully restored Gilded Age landmark minutes from world-class shopping, cultural attractions, and Madison Square Park, it is a vibrant oasis at the centre of it all. Mindfully blending personal service, superlative design by Martin Brudnizki Studio, noteworthy cuisine, and compelling cultural experiences, every aspect of Flâneur Hospitality’s inaugural property delights, engages, and rewards curiosity.
With a self-proclaimed Flâneur sensibility, this luxurious property boasts 110 guest rooms and 43 suites, all uniquely designed to evoke different sensibilities through the use of distinctive colour palettes, eclectic art collections, and elegant furnishings. Housed in a historic 19th-century mansion designed by the renowned architectural firm McKim, Mead and White, The Fifth Avenue Hotel promises to charm guests with its undeniable elegance. The grand opening is slated for the summer of 2023.
Gracious hospitality and culture have always resided at 250 Fifth Avenue. In the late 1800s, the address was synonymous with receptions hosted by Mrs Charlotte Goodridge and the eclectic luxury which filled her home. In the 20th century, subsequent owners brought art exhibitions and financial institutions to the corner. In 2014 Flâneur Hospitality began a thoughtful restoration, adding the Tower section and reviving the romantic spirit of a legendary address.
The Hotel shares the best of New York with the world—and the best of the world with New York. Influences from far and wide gather inside guest rooms, blending rich colours and textures with state-of-the-art service and amenities. Designed to transport and inspire, the interiors are layered with the hallmarks of a global collector with accents of chinoiserie, old-world marquetry, as well as state-of-the-art technology and entertainment.
Enveloped in natural light and lustrous finishes from floor to ceiling, open-plan guest suites deliver a joyful update to the classic Manhattan pied-a-terre and are brimming with thoughtful details, noteworthy art, and objects gathered from around the world. Nestled into the Manhattan skyline, Terrace Suites are rich in amenities and finishes; each featuring its own private outdoor space. A uniquely New York experience replete with comfort, style, and service.
Flâneur Hospitality is an innovative initiative founded by accomplished real estate entrepreneur and world traveller Alex Ohebshalom. Every aspect of The Fifth Avenue Hotel, from the design and architecture to the food and art, is inspired by his travels. Flâneur Hospitality aims to create hotels that encourage exploration, fascination and wonder, and deliver a sense of serendipity and delight while offering a sanctuary of unparalleled comfort, intimacy and inspired service. Alex adheres to Baudelaire’s observation “Boredom is the worst of Miseries!”
Guests will have their senses stimulated by an ever-changing wonderland, whether they choose to dine at the Signature Restaurant, unwind with a cocktail at the Portrait Bar, relax in the Study, or enjoy The Terrace. The Hotel is perfectly located for excursions uptown or downtown and minutes away from the irresistible energy of Madison Square Park, the flower district, the art deco beauty of the Empire State Building, Morgan Museum and Library, and the architectural wonder that is the Flatiron building.
