Ardent Hotel Management Company will manage two institutional, select-service hotels in Manhattan. 

The hotels include the 148-room Hampton Inn United Nations and the 135-room Holiday Inn Express Herald Square. The assignments come on the heels of 1754 Properties’ recent acquisition of an interest in Ardent. 1754 Properties is an institutional investment and ownership company specializing in hotels properties in urban and infill resort areas.

Opened in February 2013, the Hampton Inn United Nations is located between the United Nations and Grand Central Station, the city's transit hub, at 231 East 43rd St. The hotel has a 24-hour business center, fitness center access, complimentary in-room internet service and Hampton's signature complimentary, hot breakfast daily.
