New York Palace Announces $120 Million Renovation
The New York Palace has begun the first phase of renovations with a complete makeover of its hotel-within-a-hotel, the Towers. The $25 million project is the first phase of a $120 million redesign of the entire property.
The Towers occupies the top 14 floors of the Palace, and includes 176 guestrooms and suites. It also has a private reception area, accessible from the main lobby of the New York Palace, complete with a concierge team exclusively for guests at the Towers.
Each room will feature soft color palettes, while the furniture, carpet, and textiles will emphasize geometric elements.
The rooms will also be outfitted with new technology, such as touch-screens to control the high-tech features of the room, easily accessible outlets, and automatic shades. The rooms will also have LED lighting, iPod docking stations, and TV systems that the hotel says can sync with a guest’s computer.
The Metropolitan Suite will be redone with yellow and blue accent colors, meant to mirror the city’s taxis and sky, as well as a black and white photo collection of the city. New furniture and artwork will also be added, with the purpose of creating a feeling of the inside of an art gallery.
As part of the renovation, the lobby of the Towers will also be expanded and receive upgrades such as art deco screens, warm lighting, and brown carpeting and ceilings. The entranceway will have walls accented with silk and wood grain paneling.
The rooms are set to be completed in June of this year, while the lobby redesign will be completed shortly after.
