Opening ceremonies held for the Sutton hotel.

The Sutton, an elegant boutique apartment hotel offering long-term leases with a 30-day minimum occupancy to an international audience of primarily business executives, opened in November, 1992, in New York's elite Sutton Place district at 330 East 56th Street.

Modeled after exclusive British residences called "service flats", The Sutton features exquisitely appointed, unusually spacious apartments with traditional English-style furnishings, and beamed ceilings and crown moldings which lend a gracious Old World-style ambience to all living areas. Fully-equipped kitchens in all apartments feature a stove, dishwasher, full-size ice-maker refrigerator, glassware and flatware, granite countertops, glass-door cabinetry, and built-in under-counter coffee and tea makers.

In addition, each apartment features a videocassette recorder, two color TV's (three in two-bedrooms, one in studios), multi-line telephones, and computer and fax outlets. Marble bathrooms possess all-brass faucets, shower controls, and accessories.

Over two-thirds of the 84 apartments will be one-bedrooms - averaging 810 square feet in size - while two-bedrooms and studios are also available. Some two-bedrooms and penthouses have solariums and spacious terraces with spectacular East River and skyline Manhattan views, while some feature huge walk-in closets.

One of the most striking amenities of The Sutton is a health club with a 55-foot swimming pool, exercise room, massage room and sauna, and wood-paneled locker rooms, which is free to all guests. Other amenities include daily maid service, a 24-hour concierge to arrange for food delivery, limousine rental, and personal shopping, 24-hour valet and dry cleaning, valet parking, free fax machine rentals, and a multi-lingual staff.

"The Sutton will introduce a new product niche in New York - a boutique hotel devoted to long-term stays of at least 30 days which offers the last word in luxury and comfort for executive travelers," according to Paul T. Underhill, chief operating officer of Sovereign Management Corp., the management company for the property.

"Our product offers tremendous value for high levels of quality and service, with rates starting at $3,500 per month for studios and $4,000 for one-bed-rooms."
