East meets West and old meets new. Manhattan’s iconic Crown Building is reimagined as Aman New York, where the city’s original architectural splendour and Aman’s harmonious design language collide, reimagining the inimitable tranquillity of Aman in the heart of Manhattan’s midtown. With a year-round Garden Terrace, flagship Aman Spa and spacious suites all among the largest in the city.

The Stay

Among the largest in the city, Aman New York’s Suites and Signature Suites are inspired by the airy architecture of Aman’s properties in Southeast Asia. Ideal for business or leisure guests alike, they offer a never-before-experienced sense of sanctuary in the very heart of Manhattan’s midtown – an invitation to switch off from the outside world. From the Deluxe Suite on 56th Street to the Aman New York Suite, each offers a functioning fireplace, a first in New York City, while bathrooms (the dividing doors alone took two years to design) are opulent and oversized with oval soaking bathtubs designed to deliver peace at the end of a busy day.

The Dining

Bringing Aman’s eastern roots to one of the West’s greatest cities, Nama celebrates the Japanese washoku dining tradition with authentic, uncomplicated and elegant dishes that champion the world’s finest produce. The restaurant also features a Japanese Hinoki wood counter for hosting omakase fine dining experiences.

If you prefer Italian, make Arva your go-to. Pre Jazz-club this is the perfect start to a night of all good things in life. Drawing its name from the Latin word for ‘cultivated land’ that evolved into the English word ‘harvest,’ Arva brings the rustic, flavour-focused traditions of Italy to Aman.

With a strong focus on fresh seasonal ingredients and uncomplicated, heart-warming dishes you can enjoy a leisurely dinner for two or a long-table Italian style with friends and family.
