The first Hotel Viceroy New York has opened its doors on the 57th street featuring an elegant glazed black brick-and-metal window façade bringing aesthetic memories of an black iron old New York. After working on projects like the Ace Hotel New York and the Standard NYC this has been the most ambitious project to date for Roman and Williams.
The intimate lobby transports you back to last century right before modern architecture started producing boring and sleek environments. The use of three different book matched marbles combines with interesting textured surfaces . While colours are soft and relaxing the impressive mural by Thomas Hart Benton becomes the main character in the space. The elevators feature a different type of marble always keeping an elegant and restrained look.
All rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows that the guest can open. There is a nautical theme running thoughout the hotel evoking the golden age with african wood paneling and a very creative furniture design that improves storage space. The bathrooms are simple but elegant with golden touches in the vanities. The design I would say is quite masculine, but brightened up with splashes of deep red: on the doors, the inlay of the stationary boxes, and the ceiling lights.
