The Garden City Hotel restored

The historic Garden City Hotel in Long Island, New York completed a multi-million dollar restoration to public spaces within the hotel, including the grand ballroom and lobby. Fortuna Realty Group acquired the iconic property.

The hotel redesigned its lobby with imported custom Italian furnishings by Felice Tedeschi of Tedeschi USA, including classic-contemporary pieces in the seating areas throughout the space. Changes also include a custom 30-foot Venetian Murano crystal chandelier, the restoration of its marble floors and revival of the millwork to its original grandeur.

The project also rejuvenated the 6,000-square-foot grand ballroom from floor to ceiling, including the gold leafing of its coffered ceiling, bringing attention to the room’s crystal chandeliers. The floor of the famed Rotunda has been refreshed with new Nourison carpeting designed in a modern print of gold and deep reds, similarly installed in the ballroom and extends to its adjoining reception spaces, the Grand Salon, Petit Salon and Concorde Suite, on the same level. Finishing touches include custom Versailles-style chairs and a collection of brand new tabletop details.

Since 1874, The Garden City Hotel has welcomed guests. From post-Civil War beginnings to present-day, The Garden City Hotel has hosted meetings and special events.
