Already in March, 2012 the guests of the renewed hotel will be able to see new Grand Hyatt New York. The culmination of the reconstruction project was installation in the lobby of the «Awilda» and «Chloe» sculptures of the famous Spanish artist Jaume Plensa.
Grand Hyatt New York is one of legendary hotels in New York. The hotel was opened in 1919 as The Commodore. It became a part of the Hyatt portfolio in 1980.
Renovation of the hotel located in Manhattan, a few steps from the Central Station, the Times Square, the Central Park, the Broadway and the 5th Avenue included 1306 rooms and suites, lobby, New York Central restaurant, meeting rooms and conference halls. The hotel renovation project was a part of the single plan for the Grand Central district reconstruction.
Famous artists and designers, who designed the Grand Hyatt New York, have breathed new life into the historic building.
Two design bureaus participated in creating the hotel interior - Looney & Associates (Dallas) and George Wong Design (New York).
Design project of the most rooms in the Grand Hyatt New York was developed by professionals from Looney & Associates. Thanks to the stylish wooden decorations, deep colored carpets and bright lighting, the designers managed to create elegant and refined atmosphere of the "Manhattan apartments" in the rooms. The hotel also has 20 VIP-suites divided into two categories: urban "lofts" and modern "residences".
George Wong Design created the interiors of the four Premier suites according to the «pied-a-terre» concept, which implies creation of a cozy country house atmosphere in the room. Premiere Suites are created in the classic suburban townhouse and apartment style, which are found in the central part of New York.
Grand Club lounge zone, Gallery On Lex playground decorated with colorful panels of the German artist Burghard Muller-Dannhausen, New York Central restaurant, Market facility in the «grab and go» style with a full range of foods for breakfast , lunch and dinner - all of them were updated during the reconstruction.
