The Langham, New York, Fifth Avenue has unveiled a presidential suite which features the ultimate in culinary exclusivity
If there's one address that needs no introduction, it is New York’s Fifth Avenue. Hedonists and epicures have added glamour to the street making it their favourite retreat. And now Langham has added to the resplendence.
The Langham’s envious suite debuts with French joie de vivre by designers Roche Bobois and Italian la dolce vita starring exclusive offerings from Chef Michael White and Ai Fiori
The limelight is on the brand new Presidential Suite by Roche Bobois. Featuring luxe interiors by the design house and retailers, Roche Bobois, the 1,900-sq ft two-bedroom suite on the hotel’s 27th floor also features tantalising culinary exclusivity – a Michelin-starred restaurant brought right to the guest’s room.
In partnership with The Langham’s award-winning restaurant, Ai Fiori, part of Chef Michael White’s Altamarea Group, guests of the Presidential Suite by Roche Bobois will be able to enjoy all the benefits of dining at Ai Fiori in their suite dining room, as well as access to a private chef service from the Ai Fiori culinary team, and a mini-bar and pantry curated by Chef Michael White himself.
The Presidential Suite by Roche Bobois, Suite 2704, located on the highest floor in the hotel, features two full king-sized bedrooms, two full marble-clad bathrooms with generously-proportioned soaking tubs and separate rainfall showers, a spacious living room, dining area that seats up to eight people and a full kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances by Miele. The luxurious contraptions are off-set by floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the most iconic sight in New York City – the Empire State Building and the magnificent skyscrapers surrounding it.
Unique to the Presidential Suite, the kitchen is outfitted with flatware by Christofle, and china and glassware by L’Objet, the perfect accompaniment to the exclusive access to Ai Fiori being offered to guests of this suite. These unique culinary offerings, exclusive to The Presidential Suite by Roche Bobois, created by the team at Ai Fiori include Private Chef Experience with a member of the Ai Fiori culinary team preparing meals for the residents of their suite and their guests in a private dinner party format.
Since the physical position of 2704 literally means it’s the top suite in the hotel, the design concept for The Presidential Suite is “elevation”. This floor of the hotel has slightly higher ceilings and, as Langham Place’s pinnacle suite, allows for the best view of the skyscrapers surrounding it.
The famed Roche Bobois trademarks are also integrated throughout the suite – the lush purple Illusion sofa; the mid-century-inspired Echoes armchair; and the iconic Fleur de Fer console table, designed as one-of-a-kind by artist Maurice Barilone. Each room in the suite has a backdrop of vintage smoked mirrors - in the living room behind the wall unit shelving and in each bedroom behind the bed.
As with the previous two Roche Bobois Penthouses, The Presidential Suite by Roche Bobois features Courchevel and Rive Droite beds from the Roche Bobois collection. In both the bathrooms and the bedrooms, the linens are imported from Italy by Privilegio Milano, constructed from decadent cotton that feels like silk on the skin.
