New Yorker Hotel Targets Business Travelers with Renovation Effort

Following the New Yorker Hotel's $65 million renovation and remodeling effort, which will be completed in phases now through August 2008, business travelers will experience completely remodeled rooms (featuring plasma televisions and art-deco-inspired furnishings), improved free guest Wi-Fi (with more bandwidth to increase speed of access), upgraded dining options, and much more. The hotel is also looking into purchasing 'jack packs' that feature iPod docking stations, since iPods and BlackBerrys go hand-in-hand with today’s business traveler.

For added convenience, the New Yorker Hotel features a fully-equipped, 24-hour Business Center complete with computer terminals with high-speed Internet access, fax machine printers and copier.

The New Yorker has 25,000 square feet of meeting space in 15 meeting rooms (two stately ballrooms, 12 meeting and conference rooms, and the Sky Lounge), 24-hour room service, and a complimentary Fitness Center complete with stationary bikes, treadmills, Stairmaster, free weights and weight/resistance equipment.

The Sky Lounge also accommodates up to 40 people and can also be used as a meeting space to host breakfast appointments, cocktail receptions, small seminars or board meetings.
