The historic New York Helmsley Hotel has launched a $65-million renovation in preparation for flying the Westin flag following the extensive re-branding.
Each offering over 300 sq. ft., all 774 guestrooms will undergo a floor-to-ceiling renovation and feature the brand’s eco-friendly Westin Classic design scheme.
More than 15,000 sq. ft. of meeting space will also be renovated. Five new breakout rooms will be added, with the largest space accommodating 450. Additional amenities include teleconferencing capabilities, fibre optics, and some of the highest bandwidth in Manhattan.
In addition, the lobby bar/restaurant will be extended to 42nd Street and the entire façade of the building will be transformed.
The renovation is expected to be completed in June and rooms will remain open during the conversion.
