Grayson Hotel opens in NYC, joins Hyatt's Unbound Collection

The Grayson Hotel has opened in New York City, paying homage to the turn-of-the-century industrialization of New York and the cross-cultural culinary awakening it inspired, according to the property's leadership. The new-build hotel is owned, developed and managed by the Fortuna Hotel Collection, and joins The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand as its first New York City property.

A two-story steel spiral staircase connecting the street level with an indoor-outdoor dining space on the second floor displays the industrial-chic property design. 

Each of Grayson Hotel’s 296 guestrooms has a collection of artwork curated by global art consultancy firm Indiewalls, highlighting historical sites in New York City. Three interconnecting hotel suites on the fourth floor have private balconies with views of landmarks.

Guestrooms and suites display vintage books and objects to immerse guests in the local culture and the unique story of the hotel. The accommodations are designed to blend the contrast of raw and refined, with steel and glass juxtaposed with lacquered wood, rattan and gold accents.

“New York is a city built on grace and grit and we've engaged the same principles to create Grayson,” GM David McManus said in a statement. “Concrete ceilings, iron-railed staircases and detailed millwork are the backdrop for the best in dining, rooftop lounging and a series of collaborations with NYC institutions. Grayson Hotel is all about celebrating what makes New York, New York."

Guests have access to the 24-hour fitness center and to the nearby Oasis Day Spa. 

New York City-based hospitality company Apicii will open multiple dining experiences at Grayson Hotel beginning this fall. 

The architecture and design of Grayson Hotel is credited to Italian Marcello Pozzi, founder and principal of MarceLLO Pozzi architecture & design. The guestroom’s design elements were developed and implemented by The Setting New York. The restaurant concept and design was developed by Dutch East Designs.
