TAKE New york city

JULY 14 - 17, 2016 | NEW YORK, NEW YORK


The (New!) New York EDITION Hotel: Sponsored by The Ritz-Carlton (View here)

This property brings together lasting comfort, extraordinary style and an exceptional level of service in a uniquely individual environment. Located in the heart of midtown New York’s Flatiron District, steps from Madison Square Park, the luxury hotel seamlessly blends the integrity and character of a prestigious landmark building with a simple, sophisticated design sensibility. Originally built in 1909 as the headquarters for The Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, the historic 41-story clock tower offers jaw-dropping 360-degree views and is an iconic landmark against the city skyline.
