The RIHGA Royal Hotel Becomes The London NYC

Formerly the RIHGA Royal Hotel, the London NYC will debut this November. It boasts 564 suites and flats, interiors designed by David Collins, Michelin chef Gordon Ramsay's first U.S. restaurant, and the services of the elite global concierge outlet, Quintessentially. The 2,200 sf of meeting space is scheduled for refurbishment in early 2007 and around the same time the hotel plans to offer a Duplex Penthouse located on the 53rd and 54th floors, a venue designed with cocktail parties in mind.
