The Renwick, a new 173-room hotel with 33 custom suites, opened in New York. Located steps from Grand Central Station and Midtown Manhattan, the hotel is the product of a partnership between Interstate Hotels & Resorts, hotel Asset Value Enhancement (hotelAVE) and Meadow Partners.
“The Renwick is an artfully curated hospitality experience that caters to the most discerning of travelers and locals,” said David Israel, SVP of hotelAVE. “We’re excited to bring back the creative spirit of the building’s past through each detail of the property and launch a new lifestyle luxury hotel that brings to life the new soul of classic New York.”
The hotel takes its name from James Renwick, Jr., the architect best known for his design of St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Fifth Avenue in NYC. The property’s 173 loft-style guestrooms and suites have custom-furnishings made to reference items found in an artist’s studio such as easel-inspired television stands, desks reminiscent of the artist’s work bench, nightstands intended to mimic flat file cabinets and a patterned carpet that simulates paint-splattered concrete.
