New Yorker Hotel Wraps $70 Million Transformation

Although it's 80 years old, the New Yorker Hotel in New York is looking brand new thanks to an 18-month, $70-million renovation that included a top-to-bottom transformation of its 860 pre-existing guest rooms.

The re-launched New Yorker Hotel, which sports a 1930s New York/Hollywood art deco theme, features completely new furniture, carpet, wallpaper and lighting, not to mention 52 new guest rooms in what was once commercial space, bringing the hotel's total room count up to 912.

Each of the hotel's guest rooms also features a new bathroom, as guest bathrooms throughout the hotel were updated with new sinks, shower curtains, mirrors, faucets and tile.

Other upgrades in the hotel were made in the lobby—which was re-designed with new lounge seating, a new chandelier, new check-in and concierge desks, new signage and new flooring in the form of the hotel's original marble floors, which were previously covered with carpet and have since been restored—and outside, where the building's Eighth Avenue facade has been re-finished with new stone, new revolving entrance doors and new exterior signage.
