NEW YORK—Wyndham Hotel Group welcomed the New Yorker Hotel to the company’s upper-upscale Wyndham Hotels and Resorts brand. With 1,083 guestrooms, the Wyndham New Yorker Hotel becomes the largest property in the brand’s portfolio.
The addition of Wyndham New Yorker Hotel, located in Midtown Manhattan at Eighth Avenue and 34th Street, is a significant milestone in Wyndham Hotel Group’s strategy to fly the Wyndham flag in key cities around the world. In the past 18 months, the brand’s footprint has expanded to city-center locations in major markets including Boston, San Diego and Philadelphia in the US; Istanbul; Berlin and Salzburg, Austria, in Europe; and Cusco, Peru, and Guayaquil, Ecuador, in Latin America, among others.
Owned by New Yorker Hotel Management Company, Inc., the 40-story hotel becomes the fourth Wyndham hotel in Manhattan, joining Wyndham Midtown 45, Wyndham Garden Chinatown and Wyndham Garden Manhattan Chelsea West.
After previously undergoing over $100 million in renovations, a new multi-million dollar renovation is currently underway at the historic hotel to upgrade all guestrooms, public spaces and meeting facilities.
“The New Yorker Hotel is an iconic mainstay that is synonymous with one of the greatest cities in the world,” stated Keith Pierce, EVP of brand operations for Wyndham Hotel Group. “This key landmark and recipient of TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence in 2013 puts business and leisure travelers in the heart of New York City’s excitement and greatly strengthens the Wyndham brand’s profile in this important market.”
Currently, the property’s 25,000 sq. ft. of meeting and event space is comprised of 14 conference rooms and two large ballrooms that cater to functions ranging from 10 to 600 attendees. Upon completion of renovations, meeting and event space will increase to over 30,000 sq. ft. Guests hosting events at Wyndham New Yorker Hotel have access to state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment and services, personalized catering and an on-site, dedicated events team.
Newly renovated guestrooms feature views of New York City, flat-screen TVs and art deco-style decor. The hotel offers two on-site dining locations: Cooper’s Tavern, which serves fresh American cuisine at lunch and dinner, and the 24-hour Tick Tock Diner featuring classing American dishes.

The theme of this year’s ALIS conference was “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.” But, lets face it, there are always going to be some people who aren’t happy unless they are worried about something—whether it’s the Fed potentially raising interest rates or that the price of oil is now too low, threatening to cripple the economies of some foreign nations.
