Setting new standards for luxury, the towering, limestone-clad Langham Place, Fifth Avenue (formerly the Setai Fifth Avenue) was conceived as an opulent crash pad for wealthy overseas tourists, captains of industry on long-term stays, and anyone in need of some serious pampering. Every detail has been attended to, beginning with an intimate lobby in onyx, leather, and glass, where you are greeted by your "service stylist" (no old-school concierges here), who attends to your every whim. Standard rooms begin at a spacious 700 square feet, with giant hardwood closets and bathrooms with rain showers and soaking tubs. The large spa has an ice room and a Turkish-style hammam. Chef Michael White is behind the Michelin-starred Ai Fiori.
