What used to be known as the Radisson Lexington Hotel in New York has recently become an independently operated property, the Lexington New York City. Following its multi-million dollar renovation—during which the property will remain open—the 712-room property will feature custom furnishings and commissioned art pieces in a style reminiscent of New York’s classic jazz era.
“The Lexington’s historical significance is something that has proven to be a great influence throughout the design process,” says David Ashen of Dash Design, the design firm overseeing the property’s reimagination. Referring to such icons as Joe DiMaggio, Marilyn Monroe, Bill Clinton and Jennifer Lopez, he continues, “We felt it was important to highlight the elements that have drawn so many noteworthy guests to this hotel since the late 1920s. We are bringing a fresh perspective to the property and working to create a place that feels familiar and referential.”
Lexington New York City is located in Midtown Manhattan, just a few blocks from a variety of such famous New York City attractions as Grand Central Station. On property, the hotel will feature six onsite bars and restaurants, a spacious fitness center and a concierge staff to attend to guest requests and concerns.
Lexington New York City’s renovation aims to be complete by April 2013. Rates start at $159 per night through Dec. 30. For more information, call (800) 448-4471 or visit lexingtonhotelnyc.com.
