This launch is the brand’s second urban hotel following the success of its Tokyo property
Aman hotel group has announced that the highly anticipated Aman New York will welcome its first guests on 2 August 2022.
Following the transformation of the Crown Building in Manhattan, the 83-suite hotel and its 22 branded residences aim to bring the peace promised by Aman’s Sanskrit-derived name to the heart of New York.
The hotel is the second in a new generation of Aman properties located in urban settings. It follows in the footsteps of Aman Tokyo, taking the brand to 34 properties worldwide. Its typical properties are found in more remote, green and tropical locales.
Set on the corner of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, the Crown Building was built in 1921
Designed by architects Warren & Wetmore, who also designed Grand Central Station and the Helmsley Building, the property has undergone a significant restoration, marking its next chapter as an urban Aman sanctuary.
“Through a combination of its original architectural splendour and Aman’s harmonious design language, the inimitable tranquillity of Aman is extraordinarily reimagined in this urban environment, transporting guests away from the frenetic pace of the city below,” say Aman representatives.

Conceived to cater to both business and leisure travellers, the hotel’s 83 suites are among New York’s largest and are inspired by the airy styling of Aman’s properties in Southeast Asia.
Every suite features a functioning fireplace, a first in New York City
Bathrooms are spacious with oval bathtubs, marble rain showers and double sinks.
Onsite restaurants include Arva, the property’s Italian restaurant, and Nama, Aman’s interpretation of a Japanese ‘washoku’ eatery – expect rice bowls with a New York slant.
Guests can also visit the Wine Library and the Jazz Club offering a classic New York experience with live performances.
Speaking about the opening, Aman chairman and CEO Vlad Doronin said: “Following the success of the multi-award-winning Aman Tokyo, our strategy to bring the coveted Aman lifestyle to urban destinations continues apace. A milestone opening, Aman New York marks our greatest investment into a single destination to date.”
Aman New York reservations open on 25 July 2022 with stays starting on 2 August 2022. For more information, visit www.aman.com/hotels/aman-new-york
