Top 10 NYC Pied-a-Terre Apartments with Hotel Service

When searching for a pied-a-terre (French for "foot on the ground"), one ought to consider that the needs of a secondary residence differ from those of a primary household, whether the voyage is conducted for business or leisure. The best homes away from home come with full service akin to that of a hotel, or, better yet, with actual hotel service included within the building. Here are New York City’s top 10 condo-hotel combos that let residents indulge in hospitality services without worrying about a noontime checkout.

#1 - The Plaza, 1 Central Park South

Condo in Midtown West

Since 1907, the Plaza has reigned as the poshest address not only in New York City but arguably in the whole world. A $450 million renovation 101 years later reinvented the legendary property as a 282-room hotel and a 152-unit condominium, where residents can indulge in the landmark’s hotel amenities from the comfort of their apartment without setting foot onto the crowded sidewalk at Grand Army Plaza.

#2 - Residences at the Mandarin Oriental, 80 Columbus Circle

Condo in Central Park West

The Mandarin-Oriental ranks among the world’s most exclusive hotel brands. Likewise, Columbus Circle at the southwest corner of Central Park lists among the most sought-after addresses in New York City. This formidable combination within one of the city’s most celebrated multi-use properties (the Time Warner Center) has propelled the Residences’ status quo ahead of even the most esteemed competitors that offer hotel services in apartment buildings.

#3 - One57, 157 West 57th Street

Condo in Midtown West

The latest additions to Billionaires’ Row may rise higher or command steeper unit prices, yet none can match the unique hotel amenities at the original supertall on 57th Street. Residents at the 92 condos can take the elevator downstairs to enjoy the services offered by the Park Hyatt Hotel.

#4 - 35 Hudson Yards, 500 West 33rd Street

Condo in Midtown West

The 1,009-foot tower boldly proclaims that Hudson Yards has arrived as a luxury New York City address. 35 Hudson Yards stands out not only through its location next to Thomas Heatherwick’s Vessel sculpture, observation deck-like views from the upper floors, and distinctive design by Skidmore Owings and Merrill, but also with the Equinox Hotel on the lower floors, which boasts one of the most extensive and luxurious health clubs in the city.

#5 - The Four Seasons Private Residences, 30 Park Place

Condo in Tribeca

30 Park Place brings Central Park South-style pied-a-terre living to Lower Manhattan. To match the charm of the 1913 Woolworth Building next door, architect Robert A.M. Stern crafted an exquisite design that not only emulates pre-war precedent but arguably refines it to the next level. The opulent interiors and services that the Four Seasons Hotel lends to the building’s condo residents ensures that Great Gatsby-style luxury extends beyond the limestone facade.

#6 - The Sherry Netherland, 781 Fifth Avenue

Co-op in Park/Fifth Ave. to 79th St.

The slender spire of the Sherry Netherland has spiced many a postcard view of Central Park. CityRealty’s architecture critic Carter Horsley even argues that the hotel may be the city’s best building, citing its “magic combination of romance, originality, location and drama.” Indeed, the pre-war charm and location are comparable with the Plaza Hotel opposite the square, and park views from this 36-story skyscraper are even better.

#7 - The Carlyle, 35 East 76th Street

Co-op in Park/Fifth Ave. to 79th St.

The Upper East Side boasts myriad residential skyscrapers and just as many pre-war apartment buildings, yet only one property combines both. Moreover, the Carlyle also happens to be the only one to offer hospitality services to apartment residents, where the Rosewood Hotel shares the 38-story building with 187 cooperative apartments.

#8 - J.W. Marriott Essex House, 160 Central Park South

Condo in Midtown West

Thanks to its audacious rooftop sign, Essex House remains a staple of the Central Park South skyline even as new Billionaires’ Row towers soar skyward above. Likewise, the residential and hotel building remains a classic address for those who seek to combine centrally-located, unobstructed Central Park views with a pre-war building lifestyle.

#9 - 1 Central Park West

Condo in Central Park West

Even the staunchest opponents of the POTUS would be hard-pressed to deny the self-evident perks at his namesake skyscraper at the foot of Central Park. The 156 apartments share the Philip Johnson-designed tower with a Forbes Five-Star hotel that includes perks such as 24-hour in-room dining serviced by the Two-Michelin Star Jean-Georges restaurant.

#10 - The Residences at 400 Fifth Avenue, 400 Fifth Avenue

Condo in Midtown West

The 184 apartments at the 57-story, Art Deco-inspired tower at 400 Fifth Avenue are afforded the services of the five-star Langham Hotel on the lower floors, which includes a fitness center and the zenlike Chuan Body + Soul spa.
