New Renaissance Hotel to Debut in New York’s Chelsea Neighborhood

The design-focused hotel has 7,326 square feet of meeting space and one of the highest rooftop pools in Manhattan.

The fourth Renaissance Hotel in New York will open in September just over a mile from the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and close to the High Line elevated park, Times Square, and the Chelsea Piers Entertainment Complex.

The 341-room Renaissance New York Chelsea Hotel is built on the site of a former flea market in a 430-foot tower. The hotel design features vintage-inspired items to highlight the site’s history, and rooms and public spaces are garden-themed with touches such as ivy-and-brick-patterned wallpaper, concrete tiles, and whimsical coat hooks and lamps that reference its location in Chelsea’s Flower District.

There is a duplex nightclub, Somewhere Nowhere, with an indoor lounge and an upstairs open-air rooftop pool, lounge, and bar with views of the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building. The 2,530-square-foot rooftop lounge can accommodate 150 guests for a reception or 88 for a banquet. In addition, the hotel has three meeting rooms: The 2,170-square-foot Cardinal Ballroom, with floor-to-ceiling windows that can host up to 150 for a banquet, and two rooms that can accommodate meetings of up to 72 attendees.

Cotto, the signature restaurant, has indoor and outdoor seating in a private courtyard, and will feature an Italian menu overseen by Chef Fabrizio Facchini.

It is within easy walking distance of Broadway theaters and several subway lines.
