Whether they’re masquerading as a group of close-knit cohorts, or plotting cut-throat takeovers, the Roy children and their minions all need a place to lay their heads at the end of the night. And when in New York City, we believe those places to be the most luxurious, opulent hotel rooms money can buy. Here are six of the finest in the concrete jungle.
Since Marcia plans on selling her inherited $63 million-dollar townhouse to Connor, she may need somewhere to live until the deal goes through. Luckily, the posh Mark Hotel is nearby and features sweeping views of Central Park from the lavish penthouse suite that unfolds across the top two levels of the UES compound. Logan Roy’s third wife will fit right in, especially with Frederic Fekkai’s salon downstairs for weekly blowouts and a Jean-Georges restaurant and caviar bar on-site, until she returns to Europe for the foreseeable future.
Between grieving her father’s death, dealing with an impending divorce (as well as an apparent pregnancy?), and constantly battling it out with her brothers to determine the future of Waystar Royco, Shiv’s got a lot going on. So, when she’s not running power plays, she definitely deserves a little R&R. The eclectic Crosby Street Hotel in the heart of SoHo would be the ideal refuge for the cunning, yet complicated, Roy daughter. With kitted-out suites designed by Firmdale Hotels founder Kit Kemp, deep soaking tubs and flat-screen TVs for keeping an eye on the market, a world-renowned art collection, and a private garden, she’ll feel right at home.
Given that The Wall Street Hotel is one of the premiere boutique hotels in the Financial District, we can see any of the Roys or their interlopers like Tom and Greg staying here. Housed in a historic building that sits on the site of the original New York Stock Exchange, it’s been described as “off-the-chart luxurious” and we concur. 180 residentially-inspired rooms and suites feel very old-world New York but feature modern-day amenities like Frette linens and heated bathroom floors that come to be expected when you’re part of the billion-dollar-babies crew. There’s also a whopping 6,500 square feet of meeting room space that’s well equipped for board member blowouts, Michelin-starred chef John Fraser’s acclaimed French restaurant La Marchande, and the Lounge on Pearl for bespoke cocktails to take the edge off.
Even though Kendall might be on the straight and narrow as the newly-appointed CEO of Waystar, he would never pass up a scene-y stay at The Bowery Hotel. The Lower East Side landmark has been luring New York’s elite for over 16 years now, thanks to its unwavering cool factor and an atmospheric lobby bar that caters to A-listers and hipsters alike. The second-oldest Roy son would undoubtedly opt for the penthouse terrace suite—the most baller of their handsome accommodations with a host of VIP perks, amenities, and killer views of his city.
For Gerri, a refined woman with excellent taste, we envision a stay at an Upper East Side beacon like The Lowell or The Carlyle. When she’s not eye-rolling her way through her General Counsel duties, she would swap her power suits for plush robes and hole up in an art deco-designed pied-à-terre with white-gloved butler service. Martinis at Bemelmans Bar, cabaret at Café Carlyle, and Steak Diane at Dowling’s downstairs—this is where you check in to live your best life away from NYC’s most demanding family. Luckily there’s also Spa Valmont on the premises for stress-relieving massage treatments.
As one of Tribeca’s most admired sanctuaries, The Greenwich Hotel is ideal for booking a Succession-like stay. After all, their owner is none other than Robert De Niro, who, by the way, would be perfect in a cameo role. When he’s not frequenting Chef Andrew Carmellini’s taverna Locanda Verde, or partaking in bodywork at Shibui Spa, we can totally see him coming for Logan Roys’ offspring in some Machiavellian turn of events, then withdrawing to the palatial Tribeca penthouse. Created by Belgian designer Axel Vervoordt and Japanese architect Tatsuro Miki, the wabi-sabi designed space features wisteria-clad terraces, a heated spa pool, and rustic, repurposed materials in every room, making it a zen haven for discerning guests.
