New York, NY- The New York Palace, a luxury midtown hotel, commenced the first phase of a $140 million redesign with a $25 million makeover of its luxurious Towers accommodations. The New York Palace employed two design firms to assist in this renovation: San Francisco-based design firm BAMO; who redesigned The Towers’ 176 guest rooms and suites as well as the new private reception experience; and New York-based design firm BBG-BBGM, who renovated two of the hotel’s triplex suites and the new Metropolitan Suite. Reflecting an upscale residential atmosphere with hints of inspiration from The Palace’s historic Villard Mansion, the redesign elevates traditional luxury to new heights for today’s discerning global traveler.
The Towers is a separate and distinct part of The New York Palace, occupying the hotel’s top 14 floors. With a private reception area, accessible from the main lobby, the Towers come complete with a dedicated Les Clefs d'Or concierge team, exclusively for The Towers guests. Elevators transport guests to floors 41 through 53, which house luxurious accommodations with spectacular skyline views.
The private entranceway to The Towers lobby was expanded in size and boasts stylish upgrades, such as art deco screens and warm lighting. Upon entering the reception area, guests are warmly greeted by The Towers’ staff into a room of quiet elegance surrounded by richly appointed materials. The walls of the entranceway feature silk and wood grain paneling. Elements of the lobby design also harken back to the Villard Mansion design, with classical 19th century patterns echoing through the design of the rich brown carpeting and ceiling.
