There is a lot to please the eye, with dazzling lighting, a sleek modern geodesic check-in desk, artistic wrought iron branch decor, elegant damask wall coverings, and comfy chic seating in posh gray and white. The  Sushi Roxx restaurant just off the lobby, is an exciting addition to the many bars and eateries in the area.

Linked with pops of modern art, each spacious suite’s distinct character reflects the contemporary vision of the hotel’s full renovation completed the end of 2014. The living area of each Loft Suite features bespoke “wallscapes” designed by British designer, Paul Smith and New York City based designer, Marilyn Minter.  Select suites offer views of either the iconic Empire State Building or Chrysler Building, oversized bathtubs, lit vanity mirrors, and the array of signature amenities ensures comfort along with style.

“Breathtaking”, “Awesome”, “Stunning”….Words cannot sufficiently describe your stay at The Tuscany’s unforgettable 17th floor Penthouse Suite.

With 1400 square feet of living and entertaining space, sky high ceilings and expansive windows capture every facet of this memorable view from the comforts of your unique Penthouse and from the full surround furnished terrace.

The Penthouse Suite showcases bespoke art pieces by renowned London Street Artist , Pegasus while the Loft Suite experience features custom wallscapes, designed by Paul Smith and Marilyn Minter.   While speaking about The Tuscany, both Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn both used to “hang out in the original building” etc.  The Penthouse Suite is the ultimate romantic retreat or impressive venue for entertaining friends or business associates. The full kitchen, replete with top of the line stainless steel appliances and accessories, makes entertaining a breeze. Your refrigerator can be stocked with your favorites prior to your arrival and a personal chef can be arranged to customize your cocktail party or dinner to your specifications.
