The hotel is the second in a pioneering new generation of urban Aman properties, following in the footsteps of Aman Tokyo and bringing the brand to 34 properties worldwide.

Located at the corner of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, the famous Crown Building was built in 1921. Designed by Warren & Wetmore, the architects of some of New York’s most influential buildings, including Grand Central Station and the Helmsley Building, the building has undergone a major restoration, marking its next chapter as Aman’s urban sanctuary. Through a combination of its original architectural splendor and Aman’s harmonious design language, Aman’s inimitable tranquility is extraordinarily reimagined in this urban environment, transporting guests away from the frantic pace of the city below.

Upon entering Aman New York, guests ascend to the hotel’s 14th floor, where a double-height atrium instantly instills a sense of grandeur while connecting exceptional socializing spaces, designed by Jean Michel Gathy of Denniston and guided by the pulse of the city. Restaurants include Arva, Aman’s convivial Italian restaurant, and Nama, Aman’s take on the Japanese culinary tradition of washoku, which features a Japanese Hinoki wooden counter for fine omakase-style cuisine, alongside a bookcase of wines, all connected by a verdant wraparound garden terrace. Featuring reflective pools and spectacular fire pits, the 650 square meter outdoor space boasts a retractable glass roof allowing year-round access. Meanwhile, the exclusive jazz club features world-class live performances, reimagining a classic New York experience and serving as a nighttime gathering spot.

Elsewhere, a flagship Aman Spa covers three floors (2,300 square meters) defining an entirely new and comprehensive approach to the rejuvenation of the city. The most comprehensive realization of Aman’s wellness philosophy in the Western Hemisphere, the spa offers a full range of wellness facilities, centered by a 20-meter indoor pool flanked by fire pits and loungers. day and warmly lit by the glow of magnificent copper light fittings. For those seeking a dedicated wellness experience, two expansive spa houses include dual treatment rooms, Banya and Hammam rooms, and private outdoor terraces with hot and cold plunge pools, day beds, and fireplaces. Available for private use, the Spa Houses are comparable to those in Aman’s most remote retreats and introduce a totally new concept to the city.

Ideal for business or leisure travelers, the hotel’s 83 suites are among the largest in New York City and are inspired by the airy architecture of Aman properties in Southeast Asia. An invitation to disconnect from the outside world, each suite also offers a working fireplace, a first in New York, while the bathrooms are sumptuous and oversized with oval bathtubs, marble rain showers and double sinks. Large windows offer dynamic views, and the use of organic and natural materials and soft tones bring a sense of balance and harmony reminiscent of that found in Aman resorts to the East. .

On the 11th and 12th floors of the building, 11 Grand Suites can be configured with additional bedrooms to create family-sized spaces, while two Aman Suites offer the ultimate in Aman city living with views of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, living and dining areas with tables for six, kitchenettes with counter
seats and large dressing rooms.

In another nod to the brand’s roots, each suite also features a large-scale mural by contemporary Japanese artist Ryoko Adachi and inspired by the 15th-century masterpiece Pine Trees (Shōrin-zu byōbu) by Hasegawa Tohaku. One of Japan’s most famous works, Pine Trees was designated a national treasure in 1952 and is recognized around the world. Adachi’s recreation of the room perfectly captures its prominent pre-Edo influence and is a tribute to Tōhaku, printed on delicate rice paper and covering the walls as a captivating focal point.

Aman New York joins Amangani in Wyoming and Amangiri in Utah the brand’s third destination in the United States. Part of Aman’s solid future pipeline, the trio will soon be joined by AmanMiami (2024).
