Frommer’s says “you’ll have the feeling of having left the US” when you stay at The Kitano New York, with linens edged with fabrics “that could have been taken from a fine kimono” (Frommer’s), full marble bathrooms and Japanese-style interactive toilets. Here, guests can escape to a peaceful Japanese oasis in the heart of New York City, with calming, Zen-inspired décor and extra soundproofing in each room.

Hakubai, the on-site restaurant, is run by renowned chef Yukihiro Sato. It serves kaiseki cuisine, an ancient Japanese style of food that focuses on using the freshest seasonal ingredients, in brightly lit tatami rooms. The New York Times describes this dining experience as “extraordinary.” The other on-site dining option, Jazz at Kitano, showcases world-class live jazz over sumptuous breakfasts, brunches or cocktails.

This hotel also celebrates fine arts, featuring a rotating repertoire of gallery pieces in the lobby and mezzanine, as well as permanent fixtures. The on-site boutique offers unique gifts and museum-quality artwork for purchase. 

From the press:
  • "Even the standard rooms are all spacious and quite elegant” -- Frommer’s
