Entry Description

New York Edition is a new hotel located in the landmark Metropolitan Life Tower across from Madison Square Park. Built in 1909, the Gothic-style building, which is also referred to as the Clock Tower, was modeled after the Campanile in Venice, Italy. The 700-foot-tall tower is approximately 41 stories, and has four floors of public areas and amenity spaces. The public areas and guest rooms complements the Clock Tower’s historic interior. A palette of richly textured and natural materials was selected to enhance the juxtaposition of modern and traditional in the building.
