The renovations begin at the door. A new lobby entrance will better showcase the hotel's riverfront location and underscore its nautical theme. Under the direction of Stonehill & Taylor, the New York-based architectural and design firm, the lobby will be completely redesigned to feature the Link @ Sheraton alongside friendlier check-in "pods," flat-screen monitors and contemporary furnishings. A collection of museum-quality antique nautical maps of the Hudson River celebrate the area's rich maritime heritage.

Noting the hotel's appeal to business travelers, general manager David Chu said, "This hotel is an obvious choice for anyone traveling to New York on business. Beyond its strategic location, we offer spacious guest rooms at a great value compared to many accommodations just five minutes by ferry across the Hudson," referencing the hotel's front-door access to the New York Waterway's regularly scheduled departures. "In under 10 minutes, our guests can be in the heart of midtown Manhattan."

Overlooking the Hudson River, the hotel's glamorous new Masina Trattoria Italiana will open July 23 serving home-style Italian specialties such as Grilled Octopus, Cauliflower Carbonara, Osso Bucco and Scarpariello. The restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner for hotel guests and the public with seating indoor and out.

The hotel features 9,800 square feet of renovated meeting space, including several rooms with spectacular views of the Hudson River and Manhattan skyline, ample natural light and the full range of audio-visual equipment. The hotel can accommodate groups of ten to 150 in a variety of configurations.
