Property description

Our Park Avenue apartment is in a wonderfully warm boutique hotel on the 3rd floor looking into the tree tops on quiet city street.
Make yourself at home in a spacious 900 square-foot, one-bedroom apartment in a prewar building, circa 1920. Our apartment is quiet, private and furnish by us in a contemporary style with real furniture, books, art and object D'art that makes it a home not a hotel room.

A little history of why we bought this apartment in the Lombardy Hotel. We live in the suburbs about 60 miles outside on NYC and we came into the city frequently to visit the Museums or attend the theaters or just have dinner with friends. We would drive in and then drive home at night. A friend of ours introduced us to the Lombardy in which they owned an apartment for many years and used it on their trips to NY. They invited us to stay there and we fell in love with the calm atmosphere of the Hotel and the warm attention or the staff.

We decided to buy an apartment. We bought apartment 303 and spent 5 months renovating the space. We installed all new wide width wood floors in the living room, a marble floor in the entry and beautiful wool carpeting in the bedroom. We tore down walls and created a open kitchen and a dining space. Removed the old bathroom and built a fabulous new one with walls of Italian designer" Porcelanosa" linen tiles, a walk in shower with a contemporary rain shower plus a hand held shower and installed all new European fixtures. Since, this is our apartment the bed is luxurious which translates to very comfortable. There is also a large walk in closet and a dresser with 6 large drawers.

We also choose art work from our own art collection and added some of the many books we have read and loved to the bookshelves in the living room. In both the living room and the bedroom there are 40 " flat screen TV's. In the living room you can kick up your feet and watch a DVD or attach to Netflix via the DVD player. In addition there is a radio/CD player in the living room.

The Hotel provides valet parking at the front door. You are greeted by name and your rooms are ready on your arrival. The housekeeper cleans the apartment in the morning and returns in the evening to turn down the beds.

The Lombardy Hotel is
The best of both worlds: the discreet privacy of an apartment, the full services of a great hotel. Every day your apartment is cleaned , beds made, the linen and towels changed and the dishes are washed and put away. You are truly pampered and on vacation. When you arrive back from the theater or a wonderful dinner you enter 303 and you find that the housekeeper has visited and straighten out the rooms , turned down the bed and left you a chocolate treat.

The apartment has
Terry bathrobes in the closet are for your use.
A personal safe is in the apartment for your valuables
Free Cable TV and Netflix available

William Randolph Hearst built the Lombardy Hotel in 1926. The building is constructed with thick walls that make the apartment very quiet . Your neighbor will not disturb you and the apartment's living room has double insulated glass windows and the Bedroom has triple insulated windows to keep the city noise out.
The living room and bedroom face the tops of the trees on 56th Street and make a wonderful display when in flower.

You are on East 56 Street in a door man building and a few steps from Park Ave. At night the street is safe and it is easy to walk to and from the theaters and the hundreds of restaurants that are in the neighborhood. Many of the best Museums are near. Public transportation is within blocks of the Hotel.

You are in the Heart of Midtown East.

Come and enjoy!

Additional information about rental rates


  • NYC Tax per night $8 + tax
  • Tax Rate 14.75%


I don't collect any monies from you. The transaction goes through the Lombardy Hotel and is subject to their rules.

As the owner of the Apartment I will reserve apartment 303 for you and establish the nightly rate you will pay. I will always give you the best on line rate possible at the time of booking and pass on any discounts that maybe available.

You may also go to our website to link to the Hotel website. In that case it is imperative you contact me so I may reserve Apt 303 for you. If you book an apartment directly with the hotel and request 303 they will try to accommodate you on your arrival but cannot guarantee it will be available in which case you will be assigned another unit of the same size.

As the owner, my requests are honored and you will be registered in Apt 303.

If you are comfortable in 303 and plan a return visit you can request the apartment when you book. Just let me know and I will secure it for you.

This is as simple as booking any hotel in NY. The difference is you will have a lovely apartment and remove the chance of being assigned to a space you are not happy with.

*Damages are charged to your credit card as per your agreement with the Hotel.

*The City of NY charges a $7.50 per night tax in addition to the Sales Tax charge. This tax is listed under Fees and Taxes. Home Away does not have the computer capability to multiply the nights by the $7.50 per night charge. On booking 303 you will receive a confirmation from the Hotel that will reflect this tax.

Payment is by Credit Card. Your Credit information is given to the Hotel when I make the booking. The hotel has a deposit policy and a Cancellation policy of 24 hour or you will be charged for one night

The hotel will email you a confirmation. When you arrive you will be asked for your credit card.

The rate is subject to NY State and City taxes of 14.75% plus $7.50 per night Occupancy Tax.
