The St. Giles Hotel - located in midtown between Lexington and Park Avenues – provides guests with the finest New York City accommodations. Divided into The Court and The Tuscany, the 39th Street hotels are just steps from Grand Central Station and a short walk from Central Park. The defining features of the NYC boutique hotels, however, are their stunning views of the famed Chrysler Building just beyond the many shops and eateries that make staying at either The Court or the Tuscany so convenient. But you don’t even have to leave the hotel lobby to sample some of the best food the city has to offer. Let's listen in as Chris Swain, Director of Lifestyle, for the St. Giles New York, chats about packages, specials & amenities for these two elegant properties.
