Is New York ready for the Setai Fifth Avenue? Because the hotel is already getting a bit of a swagger on its website, where it boasts a long list of luxury amenities, and promises that "the experience at The Setai Fifth Avenue is one that will leave you breathing easy, if it hasnít already left you breathless."

Phew! We know we were left a little flabbergasted by the recent announcement of the hotel's opening dateóNovember 1stóbut that's because it came during a big week for NYC hotel news. (Or maybe it was the $545 opening rate...)

Will we really be left breathless by this new player in Midtown? Let's see what they're offering, shall we...?

Oooh, is that Calacatta marble we see?

Fancy finishes: On its website the hotel boasts about the exotic materials selected to create the rooms. These include Italian Walnut, Italian Rosewood, Calacatta Marble, Grohe bath fixtures, and Luce Di Luna Marble countertops. Everything has been chosen "to create majestic and welcoming spaces."

Expensive furniture: Think Italian. Duxania beds, Pratesi linens, and in the bathroom, floor-to-ceiling rain showers.

Size: In New York, it matters, and The Setai is showing off the fact that it will have some of the largest "expansive and spacious boutique hotel rooms" in the city. We know that sounds like an oxymoron, so we can't wait to see how they look in person. (It looks like standard rooms start at 400 sq ft.)

We're guessing those custom-designed windows that let the light pour in help with the spacious feeling.

Oróif you're scared of heights, they might simply leave you breathless?
