Grand Hyatt New York Completes Renovation

Big news from Manhattan: The Grand Hyatt New York has completed its $130 million, multi-phased renovation. The property, which is right next to Grand Central Terminal, has been under construction for months, and we say it was worth the wait!
 
Cool touch: As part of the hotel’s new design aesthetic, Grand Hyatt New York has commissioned artists and designers to re-animate and re-energize the public spaces. Multiple works by sculptor Jaume Plensa, known for his monumental public projects in Madison Square Park in New York, Millennium Park in Chicago, and Yorkshire Sculpture Park in England, will be positioned in the hotel lobby; murals representing snapshots of New York from Norwegian artist Per Fronth are showcased in both the guest rooms and in New York Central’s Wine Gallery; and colorful panels from German artist, Burghard Muller-Dannhausen, are displayed in the new Gallery on Lex event space.
 
The completed hotel has 1,306 guest rooms, including 51 suites. Of these, we're keen on the 20 VIP Suites, which offer two distinct concepts: the idea of a “loft” and the idea of a modern “residence.” The Loft Suites spacious lounge areas, a good option for business travelers who wish to utilize the spaces for small meetings. The Residence Suites offer a softer tone and a more neutral feel. But we're most excited by the four Premier Suites, which are based on the concept of the "pied-à-terre" and feature two main schemes: uptown and downtown. The Uptown Suites capture the tones of a classic Manhattan townhouse while the Downtown Suites are inspired by the open lofts of TriBeCa.
