Tuscany NYC Reopens After Renovation
The St. Giles Hotel Group announced the reopening of the Tuscany NYC following the completion of the first phase of a multi-million dollar renovation project. The hotel reopened with 124 guestrooms and suites, and the second phase will be completed in early 2013.
Phase one included the lobby, with a design that features strongly-textured materials including wide-plank oak floors and rare Tuscan travertine marble that are combined with contemporary design themes.
The rooms emphasize space, and typically range from 400 square feet and up. They feature custom oak and leather wall panels, hardwood floors and 46” LCD high-definition TVs. Glass tile is used in the bathrooms. In addition, the hotel’s suites now feature large wall murals created by a famous artist or designer.
The second phase of renovations will focus on the hotel’s 17th floor Penthouse Suite, which will include a wraparound terrace and views of the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building. There will also be a private kitchen and large living room with a working fireplace.
The St. Giles and The Court, a neighboring hotel, were both W Hotels until 2010, when they were acquired by the St. Giles Hotel Group.
