NEW YORK—The New York Palace, a luxury hotel in midtown Manhattan, has completed the second phase of its $140-million renovation, with the addition of six culinary destinations and a redesign of its hotel Lobby and Towers Lobby.
New York City dignitaries and politicians, including Mayor Michael Bloomberg, attended the hotel’s grand opening celebration on Tuesday, September 17. The hotel features upscale establishments and redesigned lobby spaces.
San Francisco-based design firm BAMO, who was tapped to redesign the hotel’s newly enhanced VIP Towers Rooms and Suites, was also employed to transform the private Towers Lobby.
New York-based architecture and interior design firm BBG-BBGM was retained to create a comprehensive master plan for the reuse of the hotel’s public spaces as well as design interiors for two previously unused spaces of the north Villard Mansion: the new street-facing bar, Tavern on 51, as well as the exclusive, sumptuous lounge Rarities.
New York-based design firm Champalimaud was selected to remodel the hotel’s main guest reception area and lobby, as well as a new bar, Trouble’s Trust and the new Lobby Lounge.
The John Hardy Group served as project manager.
