|266 West 71st Street, Manhattan-West Side, 10023, New York City, New York State, UNITED STATES.|
Description: Inn New York CityLocated on the upper West side, the Inn New York City is a beautifully-pampered brownstone that has been transformed into an artwork by a mother and her daughter. Ruth Mensch, an interior decorator and her daughter, Elyn, a fabric designer, have combined their formidable talents to create a fantasy Victorian world with interiors that are both romantic and dramatic. There is no sign out side, with only 4 apartment suites and a loyal and growing clientele that reserves them far in advance, the Inn sees no point in encouraging passersby to drop in, even for a look. But what an eyeful they would get! Four flours of a brownstone on a quiet side street have been remodeled painstakingly and furnished by their energetic on- premises hosts.
Type of rooms: Inn New York CityThe first floor Opera Suite, over fifty feet in length, has its own terrace. A queen- sized bed with stained-glass headboard, antique quilt faces a woodburning fireplace. In the center of the room, a Baby Grand piano leads to a couch, side chairs, and raised platform for dining. The entire space is abloom with rose-adorned fabrics and carpeting.
The second floor Spa Suite, is covered in blues, soft and romantic. A built-in king-sized bed sits on a stepped oak platform. Built-in armoires, a lady's desk, a soft easy chair, and fireplace are just the beginning. In another room, an oversized uniquely decorated spa overwhelms: a generous double Jacuzzi, a sauna, bidet, genuine old barberchair, and a wall cabinet artfully filled with Victorian dolls and bric-a-brac complete the scene.
Two suites, The Vermont, on the ground floor, with a country house feeling and a private entrance, and The Library Suite, on the third floor, with a fourteen-foot beamed ceiling and sponge- painted guestroom with leaded stained-glass skylight.
