The Whitby Hotel

As cousin to the cosy Crosby Street, you can expect the same art-led style from this Firmdale-owned estate. The main difference therefore lies in location. While Crosby Street serves a slice of trendy SoHo, Whitby offers easy access to the city’s big-ticket sights.

Stay at The Whitby Hotel

Boutique and discreet within Manhattan’s beating heart, this is an eclectic property providing vibrant moments of respite. The colour scheme is bold. Design celebrates art. Expect giant murals, portraits and sculptures bringing creative energies to life.Your sensorial stay begins with breakfast at Whitby Bar. The buzz is palpable as fashionable folk dine, to the aesthetic of Kit Kemp’s special Mythical Creatures china, no less. On your way out later, you roam the foyer, admiring vivid installations and the modern tales they tell. Enjoy the delights of Broadway with its own wealth of stories, before returning for a romantic dinner in the hotel’s underground Reading Room.


Travellers wishing to be near the action will find all they need at this central Upper Midtown base. Only a mere two blocks from the likes of Central Park and the MoMa, iconic shops and revered restaurants also abound closeby.


Scattered across 16 floors, you’ll find 87 individually-designed stays. Each is unique and spacious, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and a rich breadth of fabrics. Opt for a suite on the higher floors to enjoy living areas with fireplaces and your own private terrace.

Who is it for

The Whitby welcomes all ages, with adaptable abodes for those holidaying with children. However, couples will also revel in the mood of this highly intimate bolthole.

Facilities & activities

Granted, there isn’t a spa, but with a 24-hour high-tech gym, two 130-seat cinemas and a Reading Room home to 2,500 books, you certainly won’t be bored. Meanwhile, the lively Whitby Bar hosts all meals, afternoon tea and a mean cocktail hour. For those craving formal dining, light-filled Orangerie hits the spot.
