Forget About a Room With a View; At the Renaissance New York Hotel 57, the Best Source of Inspiration Is on the Roof

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired)- There are many faces of New York. There's the view from the bridges as people enter the city. There's the view from the street, crowded with buildings, where the only indication you're outside is the blue sky above. And then there's the skyline view afforded by exclusive penthouses, private jets and, in a more egalitarian approach, the Rooftop Terrace of the Renaissance New York Hotel 57. Luckily for travelers this spring, the last of these has just reopened for the warmer months, and its experience is as dramatic as ever.

Located 17 floors above street level, the Rooftop Terrace is enviable among Midtown Manhattan's boutique hotels' offerings. The space reflects the urban chic that pulses through the rest of the hotel. A carefully curated mix of textures -- from bricks, to metal, to wicker, to glass, to fabric -- creates an alchemy that is as inviting as it is breathtaking.

As guests settle in to this richly-appointed rooftop lounge in Midtown on the East Side, they immediately notice something else just as striking as the decor: the view. And while gazing out at the glass-and-steel landscape is inspiring in its own right, at least one perspective will feel familiar. The opening frame of "Sex and the City," which features a snapshot of the Chrysler Building, was shot from this very space.

But reveling in the associated fame of the Terrace is just the first of its attractions. Guests can create their own memories easily enough with a few friends and the handcrafted, specialty cocktails on the menu. Or they can book the Terrace for one unforgettable, super-stylish, private event. And as one of the only rooftop bars in Midtown East to also regularly host performances by New York's best up-and-coming musicians, the Terrace gives visitors something else they crave: an authentic NYC experience.

As part of Renaissance Hotels' RLife LIVE events, the concerts are just one more feature that distinguishes the property from other boutique hotels in Manhattan. And for discerning travelers who want the best location, unparalleled design and one-of-a-kind features like the Rooftop Terrace, only this lofty choice will do.
