NEW YORK, NY – Ideally situated in the center of Manhattan, steps away from Central Park and Carnegie Hall, WestHouse is more than just a new boutique hotel; it is an entirely new hospitality concept. Newly opened, the stunning new property provides a curated portfolio of upscale services and amenities at an unprecedented value, and an elevated level of intuitive service designed to satisfy the world’s most discerning guests in an environment reminiscent of a luxurious New York Townhouse.
“House Away from Home”
Award-winning design firm Jeffrey Beers International (JBI) conceived the overall design for WestHouse, creating timeless interiors that pay homage to the property’s historical location dating back to the 1920s. Upon arrival to WestHouse, guests, referred to as “residents,” will feel as if they’ve entered the pied-a-terre of a world traveler. “The Den” and “The Terrace” convey a luxurious “house away from home” experience where guests will enjoy the refined ambiance of a high-end residence. The Den, located on the lobby level, will provide hotel guests with premium alcoholic beverages, non-alcoholic refreshments, Barista crafted coffees, and international culinary offerings throughout the day. Located on the 23rd floor, and featuring floor-to-ceiling glass windows showcasing breathtaking views, The Terrace is a relaxing lounge with separate dining areas where guests can savor an array of delectable breakfast presentations as well as afternoon teas, hors d’oeuvres and evening canapés.
Additionally, WestHouse has partnered with the premier bespoke concierge firm, Luxury Attaché, to create WestHouse Attaché, an in-house team of expert lifestyle curators to provide unparalleled service by creating distinctive personal itineraries for each guest. From designing a private museum tour or providing access to a chic, coveted restaurant, the WestHouse Attachés will tailor experiences to ensure guests receive a level of individualized service that addresses their every desire and need.
“We recognized a niche within the industry that was not being addressed by any New York City hotel,” said Karla Keskin, General Manager. “What we have composed for this lifestyle luxury property is an experience that blends the elegant residential comforts of a New York City townhouse with the luxurious ambiance of a refined hotel environment.
WestHouse will offer 172 refined and exquisitely appointed guest rooms including 16 spacious suites. Guests will find a sanctuary in the elegant and spacious 1500-square-foot Presidential Suite, offering dual views of Central Park and Times Square. Each room is replete with distinctive amenities to make a guest feel comfortably at-home, including custom-made furnishings and fittings, luxurious bespoke DayNa Decker bath and body products, plush specially-designed 400 thread-count SFERRA Venetian bed linens, ghd, the high-end and high-performance worldwide leading hair tool brand featuring two of their most high performance products and even an ambient scent, “Guests Only,” specifically created by 12.29 for WestHouse.
Fall in Love with Sleep
All three of WestHouse’s “Terrace Suites” will be outfitted by the premier specialty sleep innovator, Sleep│Studio. Each Suite, with its own private outdoor terrace, will be furnished with Sleep Studio’s bedding system that offers the latest technology, allowing the mattress to adjust to different zones of the body and provide maximum support and comfort. Guests will also be able to tailor their own night’s rest through a series of options such as sleep masks,* aromatherapy oils* and other amenities such as turndown chocolates created for relaxation— all to guarantee a deep, restorative sleep.

Inspired Architecture & Design
JBI took their cues from the original building, dating back to 1927, and drew inspiration from the 1920s with design details influenced by Art Deco. The color palette used in the lobby, reception and The Den is a sophisticated blend of heather grey, cobalt blue, navy blue, amber, and bronze—a fresh take on a regal palette.
Inspired by the WestHouse logo that features a crest and a key, JBI designed an alluring display of antique keys set on the wall behind the reception desk. Behind the desk is The Den, which is divided into multiple seating areas and features a chic selection of furniture pieces and an intimate bar.
“We are honored to partner with WestHouse New York to create a brand new type of hotel experience designed for the sophisticated traveler in New York City,” said Jeffrey Beers, founder of Jeffrey Beers International. “JBI conceived WestHouse as a boutique hotel that feels like a well-appointed home. It was designed as a timeless homage to the past and incorporates a rich selection of dark woods, textured marbles and bold graphics to create interiors that are modern and contemporary.”
The WestHouse guestrooms and suites boast a timeless tone-on-tone palette, using dark woods in the entry that convey a classic residential touch. All guestrooms will feature Wi-Fi, marble-top desks with beveled mirrors ideal for working or makeup touch-ups, among other plush amenities.
