Starwood's in-house design team, Novogratz, helps renovate W Hoboken

W Hotels Worldwide announced that, as part of the second wave of renovation projects to reinvigorate its iconic North American portfolio, W Hoboken will see each of its 265 guestrooms and suites updated by Starwood's in-house design team. The upgrade is inspired by Frank Sinatra and baseball.

W Hoboken’s room categories include: Cozy Room, measuring on average 330 square feet; Spectacular Room, measuring on average 448 square feet; and Extreme Wow Suite, measuring on average 1,088 square feet.

Meanwhile, a custom-designed 25 foot chandelier by Madlab will be installed in the hotel's Great Room. These renovations follow the February 2014 opening of the new destination bar, LuLu's, designed by Novogratz.
