The historic Garden City Hotel on Long Island has completed a multi-million dollar restoration to its public spaces, including the legendary grand ballroom and lobby.
The hotel, which opened in 1874, redesigned its expansive lobby with imported custom Italian furnishings by Felice Tedeschi of Tedeschi USA featuring classic-contemporary pieces in the seating areas throughout the space. Detailed changes also include a custom 30-foot Venetian Murano crystal chandelier, and complete restoration of its marble floors.
The project rejuvenated the 6,000 square foot grand ballroom from floor to ceiling, including the gleaming, gold leafing of its coffered ceiling, which illuminates the room’s crystal chandeliers. The floor of the famed Rotunda - known as the ideal location for cocktail receptions - has been refreshed with new Nourison carpeting designed in a modern print of gold and deep reds also installed in the ballroom and extends to its adjoining reception spaces, the Grand Salon, Petit Salon and Concorde Suite, on the same level.
Finishing touches include custom Versailles-style chairs and a collection of brand new tabletop details.
