Red. Blue. Green. Yellow. The color explosions at the latest New York design hotel „The William“ make for a good mood. But it is anyway guaranteed to have a good mood. Here, ﬁnally, one is in New York, the city which never sleeps. There is only one drop of bitterness: The charming boutique hotel in Midtown Manhattan is too nice, one may not want to leave it at all.
UNIQUE IN STYLE
The William is anything but dull, a new place which sets unusual accents, even in a town like New York. The boutique hotel opened in 2014, its 33 rooms fall out of frame. Here the boundaries between architecture, interior and art seems to be blurred. Each ﬂoor was assigned its own color and shines happily in blue, green, yellow and red tones or, however, in fresh orange. The hotel is a "whole piece of art": Situ Design who designed the interior decoration and the artist William Engelm, who contributed paintings throughout the whole hotel, as well as “Lilian B Interiors” under the direction of Lilian Bakhash who was responsible for the interior design. The perfect interaction of these three is reﬂected at the whole hotel, and thus harmony spreads throughout the whole hotel, walls, carpets, bedclothes and textiles as well as the furnishings in their respective color work perfectly with each other.
SHORT STAY. LONG STAY. PERFECT STAY.
Who enters The William cannot be sure at the ﬁrst glance if he really entered a hotel because the entrance hall is very special - in concern of style and atmosphere it goes back in tradition to somewhat of a private club, but still it remains always a hotel. The historical elements of the building are shown in grey, a detail which also ﬁnds itself in the lift area.
The William is full of charm, style and hospitality. This is mainly due to the hotel team. Warmhearted and highly professionally, the wishes of the guests are fulﬁlled. Just in the sometimes hectic city the travelers estimate a form of unexciting, professional looking service by the employees. Guests are sad when they have to leave this friendly hotel. However, for those who are not planning on leaving: Up from duration of a stay of 30 days, the hotel offers a special range of prices which guarantee further savings. Thus, the New York lifestyle can be enjoyed in the middle of Manhattan in colorful suites – round-the-clock looked after by a caring concierge. The suites - with balcony and kitchen - act here as urbane oases with amazing views of the skyline.

MUST DO & MUST SEE
- Bequeme Schuhe anziehen: Viele Sehenswürdigkeiten liegen vor der Türe des The William und können zu Fuß entdeckt werden. Alle anderen Hotspots sind problemlos mit der U-Bahn erreichbar. Bei dem New Yorker Verkehrschaos macht ein Auto tagsüber wenig Sinn. Abends hingegen kann man sich gut mit dem Taxi fortbewegen. Die Taxipreise sind für so eine Metropole erstaunlich human.
- Den High Line Park entlang spazieren: Die still gelegte Hochbahntrasse ist heute eine grüne Oase inmitten der Stadt. Wer sich zwischendurch stärken möchte, verlässt den 2,3 Kilometer langen Parkweg und geht im Meatpacking District oder im Chelsea Market essen.
- Mit der Fähre nach Staten Island fahren: Die kostenlose (!) Überfahrt geht ganz nah an der Freiheitsstatue vorbei, und man hat einen grandiosen Ausblick auf Lower
- Fleischliebhaber müssen dem Steakhouse Keens einen Besuch abstatten. Die Prime Steaks des Restaurants in Midtown sind legendär – die Single Malt Sammlung ebenfalls.
