This noble pile of white marble, Corinthian architecture, covering eighteen full city lots and accommodating one thousand guests, marks a place in the heart of the great City of New-York, and an era in the history of the Nation's wealth and advancement. It is located in the centre of the City, upon the charming Madison Square and at the intersection of the two great streets, Broadway and Fifth Avenue, and convenient to the most important points of interest in the Metropolis.

Its patrons include the names of the most prominent men and women in America-The Presidents, hundreds of Government Officials, Senators, Congressmen, Judges, Army and Navy Officers, Divines, Physicians, Authors, and in fact all who have attained prominence and celebrity in public and private life, both at home and abroad; and the most distinguished Europeans of rank and title who have visited this country,

It has been the centre of all the great public occasions which the City has witnessed for thirty years.

Years have come and gone, new hotels have multiplied with innovations and features introduced to affect and influence patronage, but the Fifth Avenue is as new and fresh as the most recent hotel construction, with more liberal accommodations than any of them, and its well-earned reputation as the leading hotel of the world is more and more assured.
