Paris-born Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts, part of Marriott International, along with Arden Group, is excited to announce the opening of Le Méridien New York, Central Park, a 240-room hotel that offers breathtaking views of Central Park and Manhattan skyline. The former Viceroy hotel was converted to showcase Le Méridien's heritage and mid-century design. With a nostalgic nod to the glamour of the French Riviera in the 1960s, Le Méridien inspires travellers to explore the world in style, savour the good life and enjoy experiences that offer something more than meets the eye.

This marks the brand's entrance into New York City, bringing its French heritage and the allure of the Côte d'Azur to the Big Apple. Ideally located at 120 West 57thStreet, travellers are immersed in Manhattan's most iconic 5th Avenue location next to high-end storefronts such as Tiffany's, Harry Winston, and more, further speaking to the crossroad where the New York jet set meets nostalgic 1960s high fashion and glamour. Additionally, travellers are just steps away from must-see attractions such as Carnegie Hall, Museum of Modern Art, Radio City Music Hall, Broadway, Central Park and much more. Marriott Bonvoy members will be able to redeem and earn points at this new Le Méridien location.

Designed by renowned firm Roman and Williams, the hotel's façade cleverly blends traditional elements with a modern flair, while the interior features a combination of custom designed and vintage details. Welcoming accommodations and suites on 28 floors offer stunning views of Central Park and are adorned with gold finishes and marble surfaces. The guestrooms are outfitted with Le Méridien's signature bed, HD Samsung SmartTVs, illy espresso machines, Mondaine work spaces and superior Wi-Fi. Guests will also be able to enjoy a revamped state-of-the-art fitness center and take advantage of the hotel's sprawling scenic views of Central Park on its outdoor rooftop terrace.

For guests' dining pleasures, Petit Plates offerings include unique bites inspired by European classics which are infused with a distinctly local flavor for a chic twist. The Sparkling programme is the perfect complement to these light bites. Adding a modern twist to the traditional aperitif hour, Le Méridien Hub transitions into sparkling evening ambiance providing a sophisticated array of spirited libations.

To meet the needs of business travellers and small groups, the property also offers over 1,000 square feet of meeting room space. The Empire meeting room accommodates up to 30 guests within 700 square feet of space, and America's Boardroom is the richly appointed 306-square-foot executive boardroom with adjacent pre-function space which accommodates smaller groups of up to 12 guests. Creative Meetings by Le Méridien are designed to unlock inspiration and foster innovation. Attendees can discover local cultural experiences to immerse themselves in all that New York City has to offer.

Le Méridien Hotels also offers guests a sensorial environment - this unique atmosphere is created including the brand's signature scent, which was developed with NYC-born brand MALIN+GOETZ. Aptly named LM002 for airplane tail numbers, the alluring scent is featured in the public spaces of all properties globally. Paying homage to its French roots, the brand also has a signature soundtrack that fills the Hub and public spaces, curated by French Bossa Nova band Nouvelle Vague.

While the initial conversion is now completed, additional renovations including guestroom upgrades are slated to be completed in 2020. HEI Hotels & Resorts, an independent owner and third-party management company, operates the hotel and oversee the renovation process.
