Think Of This Renovated Manhattan Property As The Hotel Version Of The Museum Of Modern Art


Lobby of Conrad New York Midtown

In the lobby of the new Conrad New York Midtown is a swimsuit-clad woman reclining on an inflatable swan. Is it real? No, it’s an extremely life-like sculpture called Leda and the Swan by hyperrealist artist Carole A. Feuerman.

As an homage to the Museum of Modern Art down the street, the 54-story hotel is filled with original works from Matisse, Warhol and other greats.

Stonehill Taylor was behind the renovation of the former The London hotel; now, the property offers only suites—562 of them with 13 premium options resembling classic pieds-à-terre.

The grandest is the sprawling 3,000-square-foot Penthouse on 54, designed with sculptural lounge chairs by Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, graphic Loloey rugs and a bold custom sofa in fire-engine red.
