The first phase of The New York Palace’s major revamp will see the hotel’s towers get a US$25m (€ 19m, £17m) upgrade and makeover.

Two design firms have been selected, San Francisco-based BAMO; who will redesign The Towers’ 176 guest rooms and suites as well as the new private reception experience; and New York-based design firm BBG-BBGM, who is renovating two of the hotel’s triplex suites and the new Metropolitan Suite.

The makeover of The Towers, which is a separate part of the hotel occupying the top 14 floors, will include the expansion of its private entranceway and the addition of art deco screens and warm lighting. The walls of the entranceway will feature silk and wood grain panelling. Pops of colour will also come from the mixed media artwork on the walls, selected by art advisor Nancy Sweeney.

Other highlights include the addition of rainshowers in many of the rooms, repurposed wood features over guestroom doors and valances and sliding partition doors in The Tower Executive suites.

In addition to a rejuvenated look, rooms in The Towers will also receive a technological and sustainability facelift that includes automated roman shades and blackout privacy curtains, iPod docking stations, television systems that can sync with computers or Netflix accounts and full lighting controls.

The combination of these technologies, including LED lighting and intelligent thermostats, also provides the hotel with energy management that creates zero impact on the overall guest experience.

Guests will also have access to an on screen menu of the hotel’s amenity offerings including spa appointments and in-room dining menus.

The rooms and suites are scheduled for completion in June 2013, with the Towers lobby following shortly.

General manager David Chase said: “The connectivity and functionality in The Towers rooms and suites has become just as important to our guests as their beauty.

“With this renovation, we have the opportunity to completely rethink how a hotel can serve its guests. The updated Towers are an extension of our guests’ homes and offices, allowing them to access all of the comforts and conveniences of each – with the addition of an exceptional view over midtown Manhattan.”
