The Sheraton New York Hotel and Towers is to undergo a $150 million renovation programme, to take place over the coming months.
All 1,780 guestrooms and grand suites, plus the Sheraton Club Lounge, will be increased in size in what Sheraton describes as a “floor-to-ceiling transformation”.
The redesign of 1,080 guestrooms and 32 suites is expected to be completed in May. Work on the remaining rooms will begin in December for completion in April next year.
As well as being larger, rooms will feature wall-mounted flat screen TVs, mini-bars and coffee making facilities, renovated bathrooms, a chaise lounge that converts into an extra bed and both wired and wifi internet.
The 45th-floor Sheraton Club Lounge will be transformed with extra seating, five TVs plus two “personal TVs” at the bar tables and a business centre with three computers and a printer. Guests will also have 24-hour access to espresso machines.
Hoyt Harper, global brand leader for Sheraton, said the plans came on the heels of a “$6 billion revitalisation effort” to improve quality across the Sheraton brand.
Harper said: “As the economy continues to rebound and travellers return to the road en masse, Sheraton will be ready with newly renovated flagship hotels and brand offerings.”
