The New York Palace has recently gone through a $140 million refurbishment and is offering a new ‘sweepstakes’ promotion through June 16, 2014. After reserving a Towers Suite, guests will automatically enter for a chance to win an over-the-top stay in The Jewel Suite by Martin Katz as well as a VIP weekend valued at over $60,000.
The Suitestakes winner will be treated to a two night stay in the 5,000 square-foot, triplex Jewel Suite along with roundtrip airport transfer, a welcome amenity, a bottle of Champagne, house-made chocolates from Pomme Palais and dinner for two at Villard Michel Richard.
Located in The Towers, an exclusive hotel-within-a-hotel at The New York Palace, The Jewel Suite features a two-story, 20-foot “Waterfall of Diamonds” chandelier, along a grand stairway and ‘floating’ crystal jewel boxes encasing jewelry creations by Martin Katz. Other highlights include floor-to-ceiling windows with a view of both the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building, a grand piano, a 10-seat dining room, one of the few wood burning fireplaces still available in a New York City hotel, and an oversized outdoor terrace that comes complete with a custom-designed Jacuzzi spa.
The multifaceted Jewel Suite encompasses 5,000 square feet in an extravagant triplex, one of New York’s most imaginative and opulent spaces. Radiant, Art Deco-inspired elements anchor the aesthetic, reflecting the rich glamour of the early Twentieth Century against sweeping views of the dramatic Manhattan skyline.
The entry and grand staircase celebrate light and reflection with a two-story “cascading crystal” chandelier in sculptural harmony with floating jewelry displays showcasing Katz creations valued in excess of $1.5 million. Each piece of jewerly is one-of-a-kind or limited in production, signed, numbered and made with meticulous attention to detail.
Port Laurent stone flooring and diamond-esque wall coverings compliment panel drapery in the adjacent Grand Parlor, where floor-to-ceiling windows provide breathtaking views of Midtown Manhattan. Sensual jewel-toned furnishings, dramatic wall art and a magnificent grand piano make this an ideal space for entertaining or relaxing in intimacy. The mirrored-wall dining room features a hand-blown chandelier and a Katz-created glass mosaic, providing comfortable seating for ten.
On the second floor, grand master and guest bedrooms adorned in rich hues exude opulence and subtle romance. Calcutta Tucci marble and polished black absolute granite make the master-bath a personal sanctuary.
A quiet romantic hideaway awaits you on the terrace level, complete with an historic wood-burning fireplace and penthouse-style glass walls. An outdoor terrace features an elevated stone spa and green space, where guests may enjoy a private dinner or breakfast—a one-of-a-kind urban escape with million-dollar views.
The winner of the sweepstakes contest will be announced on June 18, 2014.
