Renaissance New York Times Square completes refresh by Dash Design

In New York City, the Renaissance New York Times Square completely redesigned its 317 guestrooms and suites, following the earlier completion of its terrace suites. The hotel’s recent renovations pay homage to the property's Times Square neighborhood and the area’s evolution as a hub steeped in theatrical history.

Dash Design, a New York-based interior design and branding agency by founder David Ashen, spearheaded the makeover.

Color palettes depict shades synonymous with New York City, including cement gray representing the concrete jungle, white to mimic markings on the street’s blacktop, and yellow accents evoking the New York City taxi.

Guestroom windows and their ombre window treatments frame views of Times Square. Above the bed, the ceiling serves as a canvas featuring strokes of glossy, white feathers, said to be a nod to the spirit of the theater district. Refurbished bathrooms have refinished vanities, cheeky artwork and mirrors with a frosted outline of the city’s skyline. Curated touches include multifunctional, custom-designed furniture, which transform from seating to storage, as well as NYC snow globes.

Renaissance New York Times Square is located in Times Square, on Seventh Avenue at West 47th Street.  The 317-room hotel also has seven terrace rooms, all with outdoor private terraces on the hotel’s 4th floor.
