Park Central Hotel New York Unveils Extensive Multi-Million Dollar Renovation And Inspired Redesign

September 25, 2013 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

In the pre-Depression building frenzy of 1927, a hotel named Park Central, a nod to nearby Central Park, opened in Midtown West.

Now, following an immense multi-million dollar renovation, this landmark property at 870 7th Avenue now features newly refurbished guest rooms, and will unveil elegant interiors and public spaces in October inspired by Central Park and other iconic New York locations.

PARK CENTRAL HOTEL NEW YORKThe hotel is designed by award-winning architecture and design firm, Jeffrey Beers International (JBI), whose inspiration for the renovation stemmed from the hotel’s surrounding iconic landmarks and celebrated history, to create a distinctive, stylish and guest-centric experience.

“Park Central Hotel New York has been part of New York City’s history for close to a century, and we are excited to revive its original grandeur with a new contemporary attitude,” explained Don Fraser, General Manager, Park Central Hotel New York. “In doing so, we retained the integrity of its architecture through a significant renovation, but updated it with chic design and amenities to seamlessly weave together old and new.”

Park Central Hotel New York is a full service lifestyle hotel catering to a wide range of travelers, with 761 guest rooms, a grand lobby and mezzanine, and a meeting space made up of over 15,000 square feet of diversified event areas, including 11 meeting rooms, one boardroom and a versatile ballroom with an adjacent forum.  It will also house a signature restaurant and bar concept, a “grab-and-go” fine foods market, and a state-of-the-art fitness center.

From the neutral palettes, tranquil ambience and authentic furnishings found in the hotel’s public spaces, to the handsomely outfitted guest rooms replete with tufted fabric headboards and dark-stained millwork details, it is evident that Beers allowed the property’s original personality to be showcased brilliantly in his redesign.

“This was a special project for us,” said Jeffrey Beers, founder of Jeffrey Beers International. “Park Central has a long and distinguished history, and its location at the epicenter of New York City served as a true inspiration. We really viewed this project as a love letter to New York City.”

While this redesign is not the first Park Central Hotel New York has seen, it is the most significant to date.  The property was originally a 1,600 room hotel, and was downsized to 1,450 rooms in the 1980s, making it the city’s fifth largest hotel at the time, while operating as The Omni Park Central.  By 2004, the hotel had been scaled back to 935 rooms, and it stands today at nearly half the room count of its original incarnation.

Since opening in 1927, the Park Central has played host to many iconic celebrities and figures including Jackie Gleason, Frank Sinatra, Mae West and Eleanor Roosevelt, who kept a suite at the hotel.  As it moves into its next era with a revived elegance, the landmark building is primed to further its reputation as a premier destination.
