What’s Your Tower Point of View?

As you may or may not know, The Towers at New York Palace boasts some of the most enviable New York City views found among luxury Manhattan hotels. But with so many cityscape views of Manhattan, how does one choose? We’ve mapped out which view might be best for you depending on your personal interest and which Tower accommodation will best suit your visual needs.


The view facing West

Majority of our rooms and suites in The Towers face west with views of the historic St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the Hudson River. With Times Square, MoMA and the 30 Rock studio along the horizon, our West view is ideal for guests who appreciate the artistic value of beautiful scenery.


Southwest view of Manhattan from The Towers

Our Southwest views are also appealing with iconic buildings of some of the best designers of the world, including Burberry, Louis Vuitton and Saks Fifth Avenue, glistening among the backdrop of the sunset. From Times Square to Radio City Music Hall, our southwest views are stunning in any direction and even better than the one from the Toys “R” Us Ferris wheel.


East view from The Towers

Last but not least, our East views portray the classic side of New York with views from the East River to the East Village. The view from this side of The Towers puts all of New York’s history on display like no other. Rooms and suites with East view include The Towers Room, Towers Corner Suite, Three-Bedroom Feature Suite, Towers Royal Suite, and Towers Triplex Suite.
