The Whitby

New York, New York

Why You Will Love It

Situated in upper Midtown on West 56th Street at 5th Avenue, The Whitby is in a prime location for the complete uptown experience: shopping, theater, Central Park, and museums. And even though it is in the heart of Manhattan, this boutique property – only 86 rooms! – is a charming oasis in the midst of the hustle and bustle.

Defining Factor

The style. As soon as you walk into the lobby and are warmly welcomed by the friendly, approachable staff, you be enchanted by the colorful, unique style of the property. Designed by Kit Kemp, The Whitby’s bright colors and bold patterns, original artwork, and charming décor make it anything but the average hotel.

Don't Leave Without

Having a drink at The Whitby Bar (one of our top hotel bars!). The Firmdale Signature Cocktails are inspired by each of the properties in the Firmdale portfolio.


The Whitby Bar & Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner. If you’re headed to a play, be sure to check out the pre-theater dining.
