One of the most anticipated luxury hotel openings in the United States has an update.
The Aman Hotel New York City will open in the spring of 2022.
Aman will be opening a hotel in New York City on 57th and 5th in the Crown Building.
Aman New York was supposed to open in 2020. The hotel has been listed as opening soon for nearly two years. Aman New York will be opening in May 2022, according to the Chief Operating Officer.
The opening of the New York City hotel rooms has been delayed due to lack of demand. Aman has been waiting for things to improve because many hotels have been closed for extended periods of time.
A minimum of 750 square feet is required for 83 guest rooms at Aman New York. The fireplace is a cool feature that is not found in many hotels.
Jean-Michel Gathy of Denniston designed the property, and it is said that it will pay homage to the brand's Asian roots.
There will be 22 private residences at Aman New York, ranging in size from one to six bedrooms. Private pools will be one of the things that many will feature. The first Aman branded residences will be a five story penthouse.
The hotel has a 25,000 square foot spa, a wine library, a jazz club, and an Italian restaurant.
This will be the third Aman property in the US, and it will be the second Aman city after Aman Tokyo.

What will New York rates be like?
The hotel is only a few months away from opening, but reservations are not yet being accepted. I think this will be New York City's most expensive hotel, and I can't help but wonder how much it will cost.
The hotel doesn't have many rooms, but each room is large enough to be a suite in New York City.
If I had to guess, I would say that the base rooms will start at between 1,500 and 2,000 dollars per night. I think it could be wrong, but I don't think it will be much cheaper or more expensive.
I would love to hear what others think about this.
This looks great, but...
I will say it again. I don't think city hotels will be the essence of Aman. Time will tell if Aman New York can deliver on the Aman experience.
The service standards in Tokyo are different from those in New York.
No other hotel brand would dare to open a property in a location like Aman's. The brand has sold out, with upcoming properties in Los Cabos, Miami, and Niseko. There are only a few unique properties left in the project.
Aman New York will be opening in May 2022, though reservations aren't yet being accepted. It will be the third Aman property in the US and the second city Aman property in the world. The dining venues and spa at the hotel will be amazing.
What do you think about the opening of Aman New York, and what are your expectations?
