Hilton has reopened its Curio Collection hotel on New York’s Broadway, following a multi-million dollar “top to bottom transformation”.
The Henry J Hardenbergh-designed Beaux-Art property was originally built in 1897, and has been marketed under brands including Holiday Inn and Radisson, before joining Hilton’s Curio Collection in 2019.
Features include 531 refurbished guest rooms with new bathrooms and design elements paying homage to the 1920s, as well as a new fitness centre and restored public spaces with “new grandiose velvet blue and gold furnishings and an expansive art collection”.
The hotel will also welcome “several new, inventive food and beverage venues” next year, including an American grill concept on Broadway, a cocktail lounge on 33rd Street “harkening back to the era of great New York hotel bars featuring a small plates menu”, a coffee kiosk and an “innovative donut concept”.
Until these open guests “can enjoy a preview of the team’s culinary vision within the hotel at The Early Edition, an intimate setting featuring breakfast and an all-day, market-driven menu”.
Hilton’s Curio Collection launched in 2014, and recently passed the milestone of 100 properties worldwide.
Martinique New York on Broadway is one of two Curio properties in New York, the other being The Renwick in Midtown.
Commenting on the news Dan Briks, general manager, Martinique New York on Broadway, Curio Collection by Hilton, said:
“For over a century, Martinique New York on Broadway has elegantly reflected the rich history of its vibrant and dynamic surroundings.
“Just as it was during the Gilded Age, the hotel remains a symbol of grand hospitality and we’re excited to debut its new, reimagined look to our guests who have come to know and love our hotel.”
