The old clock tower was built in 1909, which is pretty old for New York, it's incredible to think it was here before much of the city that surrounds it and it offers an awesome place to get a 360 view of the Big Apple!Maudie Tomlinson

Centrally located on 24th street and Madison Avenue, The New York EDITION offers 273 unique rooms and luxurious contemporary suites overlooking the iconic New York skyline. Part of entrepreneur and hotelier Ian Schrager's boutique EDITION hotel collection, the hotel delivers extraordinary style and an exceptional level of service. Originally built in 1909 as the headquarters for The Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, the clock tower is a Big Apple landmark. On the second floor, celebrated Michelin-starred Chef Jason Atherton's The Clocktower is the talk of the town, outfitted in mahogany wood panelled walls and curated art this is the British chef's American debut. Guests can cap off a meal with cocktails in the billiards room or at the opulent Gold Bar made entirely of 24k gold leaf beneath a 3-foot chandelier designed by Eric Schmidt. The Lobby Bar serves cocktails and serves as a gathering place for breakfast, lunch or a light dinner for guests and New York locals alike.
There are plenty of stand-out restaurants within walking distance from the hotel, from the renowned 11 Madison to Eatily's fun roof top restaurant La Birreria. The original Shake Shack is located 2-minutes from the hotel entrance, with fairy lights and outdoor heaters, its open year long. The park comes to life in the summer, with live music from children's entertainment through to jazz evenings and there are daily pop-up's at Madison Square EATS.
The New York EDITION's rooms offer unrivalled 36-degree views of the New York City skyline. Rooms, suites and penthouses are residential in style, with oak floors, custom art-work and over-sized windows that frame iconic city views including the Empire State Building.
The views from The EDITION are enough to make any child feel like they have stepped into a movie! With Madison Square Park on the doorstep, we would recommend The EDITION families that will enjoy being immersed in New York. It's a calmer, more neighborhood feel than Midtown which can be a little manic for families. For young children, there's a play park in the square and a legendary Lego flagship across the road - the place to buy your Empire State kit. For teens, they'll enjoy the buzz of the area, with the Meatpacking and Soho just a walk away. Although the hotel doesn't feature any twin beds, the hotel does provide roll-away beds and has abundant connecting room and loft options and the 2 and 3 bedroom penthouses.
Located on the second floor of The EDITION, The Clocktower, chef Atherton's American debut of updated classics and contemporary British fare has become the talk of the town. With all-day dining in a series of three dining rooms channelling the ambience of a turn-of-the-century gentleman's club, guests can cap off the meal in the billiards room or at the opulent Gold Bar made entirely of 24k golf leaf and a 3-foot chandelier designed by Eric Schmitt. The Lobby Bar serves cocktails like the signature EDITION Owl and the cheeky "High Tea" and offers a gathering place for breakfast, lunch or a light dinner for guests and New York locals.
The Spa at The New York EDITION features two luxurious treatment rooms for ed massages and treatments. If pounding the New York pavements isn't enough exercise, the state-of-the-art gym has everything you need to keep fit on the road and personal training sessions are available on request.

When to go
Summer or winter, rain or shine, there's always great stuff going on in New York, so when you're planning a trip, there's no real "best" or "worst" time to go. Weather wise fall and spring are the best times in New York. From April to June and September to November, temperatures are mild and pleasant, and the light is beautiful. Summers can be hot and humid while winter snowfalls are not uncommon. September to December is conference season in New York, and we would advise booking early for travel during this period.
