Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The Renwick hotel in Midtown East offers high-end amenities in a historic setting. Designed by St. Patrick's Cathedral architect John Renwick in 1928, the original building housed artists' studios and apartments that hosted John Steinbeck, Thomas Mann and F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Now, the hotel calls up that literary history with artist-inspired accommodations featuring easels, origami kits, hand-painted window dressings and stools, and quotes from its famous former residents. 

Residential-style suites look and feel like private apartments, with original hardwood flooring and plush velvet couches in the separate living area. In-room amenities include Brooklyn-based Apotheke toiletries, complimentary bottled water and legendary novels to read. All guests can take advantage of a business center, complimentary Wi-Fi, and passes to a local NYC gym.

The on-site restaurant Bedford & Co features elevated comfort food such as chicken pot pie and truffle mac and cheese.

Stepping outside the hotel's door on East 40th Street, guests feel more like locals, with neighborhood diners and coffee shops lining Lexington Avenue.   Grand Central Terminal (including the 4, 5, 6, 7 and Shuttle trains) is just a three-minute walk and the New York Public Library on 5th Avenue is five minutes by foot. The Empire State Building is a 10-minute stroll away.
