NYLO Hotels Releases Design Details of Upcoming NYLO New York City
NYC-inspired aesthetic will pair with NYLO brand's signature industrial style
NYLO Hotels LLC today released design details for the upcoming NYLO New York City, set to open this summer at 77thand Broadway on the Upper West Side ofManhattan. With a nod to the Roaring 20's and the Jazz Era, the hotel's design scheme by architecture and design firm Stonehill & Taylor will capture the cultural and historical essence ofNew York City while maintaining the urban, industrial style that is the hallmark of the NYLO brand. Stonehill & Taylor worked closely with NYLO Hotels and its design consultant,Stephane Dupouxof Dupoux Design, to infuse a distinctlyNew York-feel into the NYLO design philosophy—a mix of comfortable and cutting-edge with touches of fun and whimsy.
"This is NYLO's second conversion property, and our first inNew York City," explainedMichael Mueller, CEO, NYLO Hotels. "This property is a diamond in the rough: it has historic charm and unique character that reflect its surroundings, larger-than-average guest rooms, plenty of natural light and outdoor space, great restaurant venues and the opportunity to add a destination lobby bar. On top of that, it's in a quintessentialNew York Cityneighborhood that's ideal for business and leisure travelers: minutes from almost anywhere inManhattanand a short walk from Central Park, with the charm and amenities of a residential neighborhood."
As with each NYLO property, NYLO New York City will showcase hundreds of pieces of original artwork from emerging local artists. Placed throughout the hotel's guest rooms and public spaces, the paintings capture the spirit and energy ofNew York City. The artwork was commissioned through a recent contest that sought original paintings created specifically for the hotel.
In addition to updated guest rooms and suites, NYLO New York City will feature a brand new lobby and bar that will complement the hotel's overall design aesthetic while showcasing the building's historic details and industrial core. NYLO New York City is also home to three highly popular and innovative restaurants: Serafina Upper West Side, Geisha Table andRed Farm, which is also currently under construction and scheduled to make its Upper West Side debut in the next few months. NYLO New York City—owned by an affiliate of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.—will replace the existing On The Ave Hotel, which will remain open during renovations. The property will be NYLO's fifth hotel, joining its other properties inDallas, Texas; Las Colinas,Texas;Plano, TexasandWarwick, Rhode Island.
