New Yorker Hotel
New York, NY
Architecture, Interior Design
The rebranded Wyndham New Yorker honors the history of the iconic New Yorker Hotel building by layering historical references of the art-deco era with contemporary design. A major focus of the redesign was the use of various materials and custom patterns to emulate both the art-deco inspiration and the inclusion of a modernized look. The signature center chandelier in the lobby, originally designed by Stonehill Taylor President Paul Taylor in 2006, remains the visual center of the lobby highlighted underneath by a large stone table and custom carpet. Carefully crafted seating groups update the space to cater to the needs of business travelers, as do the increased number of outlets and the addition of the communal table and new library area.
The guestrooms were refreshed with an elegant, new palette of blues and grays as well as a complete softgoods and lighting update. The addition of new artwork to the rooms the new, warmer look and feel within the rooms. A large-scale upgrade in the presidential suites, alternatively, follows the lobby design concept and feature wrap around terraces with a view of NYC’s iconic skyline.
