Hotel Description

It’s certainly not the first time an overseas arrival has come to New York and made it big. But there’s something so classic, so polished about the Marmara Park Avenue that, name aside, you might not guess it’s the latest venture of a Turkish hotel chain.

With a small collection of five-star hotels, plus an opulent sultan’s mansion-turned-event space on the Bosphorus, Marmara is a symbol of sophistication in Turkey. Meanwhile, back in New York, you won’t find any Ottoman carvings or Oriental carpets — there’s only one real indication of the Marmara Park Avenue’s Turkish roots: a sleek Turkish hammam and a subterranean mosaic-lined swimming pool.

Upstairs, it’s Park Avenue elegance all the way. The 21-story building, which dates back to 1927, once housed the offices of design and architecture firms. With high ceilings, open spaces, and a dramatic Beaux Arts-style entryway built of bronze and steel, the Marmara Park Avenue feels airy and modern, yet charmingly antique, all at once. The Marmara group tapped New York artist-designer Joe Ginsberg to work on the interiors, and his playfully decorative aesthetic and penchant for luxurious materials shapes the hotel’s atmosphere — think limestone walls in the lobby, poured concrete floors patterned with brass inlay, black and gold Mylar wall coverings, a massive abacus made of bird-shaped sculptures by the bar, velvet, silk, and leather everywhere you turn.

There are 128 guest rooms and suites, including a trio of lavish penthouses. Amenities are what you’d expect for a hotel of this caliber: hardwood floors, marble bathrooms, bespoke furniture, complimentary iPads. Dozens of rooms and suites feature private terraces, too. As in the lobby and wine bar, it’s Ginsberg’s taste that defines the look: his photos of the Hamptons hang on the walls, and the custom-made wallpaper is based on photographs he took of the Third Avenue Bridge. Incidentally, the landmark bridge, connecting Manhattan to the Bronx, was constructed in 1898 with funding by the current owners of the Marmara group. Maybe that’s what it takes to build something great in New York: native design sensibility mixed with a bit of global perspective.
