HGU New York is located in one of our favorite areas in New York City, the NoMad District – with stunning architecture and its convenience to both Midtown and Downtown.
The beautiful $18 million dollar renovation of HGU New York, marries both style and substance. The hotel definitely stands as crown jewel to the Park/Madison area.
Preserving the history of the 1905 landmark Beaux-Arts structure, designed by architect Frederick C. Browne, Alfa Development collaborated with hospitality designer Peter Guzy (of Asfour Guzy Architects) as well as DD Allen (of Pierce Allen Design) to ensure all spaces are both comfortable and chic.
Furthermore, Gallery 151 provided the curated art throughout the hotel featuring New York’s emerging artists among icons such as Fab 5 Freddy and Liz Markus. The walls are bursting with artwork accented with large, ornate flower arrangements that create an atmosphere unique to HGU New York.
Establishing a home-away-from-home experience, each of the 90 guest rooms is decorated with serene grey and white décor. Also, you’ll find 300-thread count Frette bedding, bath and beauty products from New York’s own C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries.
Also, the pillows deserve a special mention – they are incredible. Varying in firmness with white goose down and feather fill, the hotel provides guests with options to complement their sleep.
The 1905 Lounge is complete with a fireplace from the building’s original structure.
A large TV is masked behind a mirror, not competing with the décor. Eventually, it will serve as the perfect place for film screenings as well as meetings and intimate events.
In October 2016, the hotel’s restaurant opened and now provides room service. Plus, in 2017, guests will enjoy the city’s night lights when the rooftop inaugurates.
Lastly, there is so much to do in the City, that is can be pretty overwhelming, so do contact us to learn more about our Concierge Services. We will make your trip to NYC a perfect, seamless experience! Do you need help organizing your company’s business trip? Look at the Corporate Services we offer and how we can help.
