An Urban Aerie: the Quin Unveils Its New Triplex Penthouse Suite

Expansive Terrace Overlooking Central Park and Sixth Avenue Marks a Signature Addition to the New York Hotel Scene

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jul 6, 2015) -  A year and half after its much-heralded debut, the Quin, located at 57th Street and Sixth Avenue, has unveiled its new triplex Penthouse Suite -- a luxurious sanctuary near Central Park. Like the coda to a great piece of music or the final flourish to a painting, the Penthouse Suite is the finishing touch to New York's quintessential lifestyle hotel. The new suite also introduces one of New York's most expansive private outdoor hotel terraces. Its inspiring views of Central Park and Sixth Avenue make it ideal for romantic dining under city lights, or for special events from intimate gatherings to opulent dinners. Set on the top three floors of the Quin, the 3,400 square foot (315 m2) Penthouse is a midtown retreat unlike any other, offering a refined oasis high above the bustle of city life.

The Penthouse Suite welcomes guests through an intimate private foyer. An elegant staircase leads to the main level where breathtaking city views await. Here, oversized windows and glass doors open to an extraordinary 1,300 square foot terrace (177 m2). The terrace includes seating areas for up to 30 guests, including a communal table for up to 14. The scale and drama of the city can be fully felt, even as the intimacy of a private terrace lends a thrill of exclusivity. It's not hard to imagine gathering at the bistro tables for a champagne toast at sunset or inspired conversations flowing long into the evening while reclining in inviting loungers. 

For guests wishing to enhance a special occasion with seamless sophistication, the Quin has partnered with world-renowned event planner Jung Lee of Fête. Jung Lee has become one of the world's most sought-after event designers, and this collaboration marks her first hotel partnership. Since 2002, she has created once-in-a-lifetime celebrations from Capri to the Hudson Valley, with an eye for beauty and a knack for drama. From enchanting dinner parties to elaborate product launches, Jung Lee's one-of-a-kind experiences can elevate any Penthouse event to an unforgettable occasion. She'll work with guests personally to select everything from fresh cut flowers to accessories (from Jung Lee New York) with flawless execution, creating an ambience of entertaining at a fine private home -- albeit a private home with an event designer! Guests can also choose from custom enhancements like Caipirinha bars or whiskey tasting stations, lavish lounge setups, and more. Locally sourced ingredients and classic American fare from The Wayfarer enhance any event and are available 24/7 for al fresco dining on the terrace or refined meals within the Penthouse.

Indoors, the expansive open-plan living room in the Penthouse Suite features ample and luxurious seating, plus state-of-the-art electronics and technology such as an 802 Diamond Series Bowers & Wilkins custom theater surround sound system, a 65-inch LED TV, fully integrated Penthouse-only Wi-Fi network, and a Crestron control system automating audio distribution, media, lighting, and drapes. There is dining for 14 and a full-service professional-grade luxury kitchen with a SUB ZERO refrigerator, touch-less cabinets, induction glass top range, and Miele Dishwasher.

The Quin Arts Program finds true expression in the Penthouse, as well. Unique artwork curated by DK Johnston, ranging from works including "Great Wedding" by Blek le Rat to photography from Robert Christian Malmberg and a diptych by the artist ASVP, "Keep This Coupon (Wildness)" enriches and enlivens the Penthouse.

To make the penthouse a feast to be shared, there is one guest bedroom with private bathroom, and a convertible office space/bedroom with a bathroom and separate outdoor terrace. On the third level, the master bedroom is an opulent cocoon suffused with natural light that floods the space from wall-to-wall windows. The master bedroom features its own terrace, as well -- the third in this remarkable new suite overlooking the main Terrace. Other exquisite touches abound, such as a brushed nickel and velvet headboard framing the king-size DUX bed by Duxiana®. In the marble bathroom, dual vanities, a marble wet room with a glass-enclosed rain shower and separate deep-soaking bathtub with 6 multi shower heads, plus Frette® bathrobes, embroidered slippers, and aromatic Fresh® bath amenities make for extravagant indulgence. In addition, Quin Penthouse guests enjoy a dedicated 24-hour direct line to VIP services. 

Every detail has been thoughtfully executed from the interior design team of Perkins Eastman to special penthouse accessories from Jung Lee's boutique store. Even the provisions have a story to tell, as Penthouse guests enjoy a special gift crate from Kerber's Farm, curated by proprietor Nick Voulgaris III. An entrepreneur, designer, and author of a book on Hinckley yachts, Voulgaris rescued a historic farm and market on Long Island's North Shore that was scheduled for demolition in 2013. After an artful restoration, Kerber's Farm has been producing "locavore" food that is now available both at The Wayfarer and at the Quin's partner Bergdorf Goodman, heralding a successful "Farm to Fifth Avenue" movement. The Quin's Penthouse guests have the option of purchasing an exclusive package that affords a special opportunity to take a personal tour of Kerber's Farm with Nick himself. 

So, cue the music of George Gershwin and listen for the words of F. Scott Fitzgerald or Woody Allen romancing New York -- the quintessential New York Penthouse experience has just made its debut. The Penthouse Suite at the Quin is available for overnight stays or for special events at the rate of $15,000 per night. The Penthouse can be booked by contacting the Sales Department directly at sales@theQuinHotel.com or +1 (646) 589-6536, or guests may check availability online at www.QuinPenthouse.com and www.theQuinhotel.com.
