The iconic Grand Hyatt New York in Midtown Manhattan recently debuted a multimillion dollar renovation of its conference level, including 12,000 square feet of meeting space and 18 breakout rooms. Designed by New York City-based interior design and architecture firm Nemaworkshop, the new design reflects the energy of the adjacent Grand Central Terminal and the New York City skyline.

“Following the last major renovation of the guestrooms and public spaces in 2011, the makeover of our conference level and meetings space was important in creating a more cohesive design and guest experience throughout the hotel.” says John Schafer, general manager.

The designers chose silver and metallic wallcoverings from Wolf Gordon and Koroseal as well as a brown and blue palette. These choices reflect Grand Central’s turn-of-the-century style and offer a warm and welcoming environment. Other features include a barn door for a conference room, custom drink case and a digital touch screen for wayfinding. Artwork and photographs of Grand Central Terminal grace the walls. Nemaworkshop started with consideration of the art and chose photographs of the iconic landmark that focused on abstract elements of the terminal.

“With over 60,000 square feet of unique meeting space, our hotel is a leading New York City meetings hotel, and with this renovation, our facilities now truly match our superior service. We look forward to welcoming both past and future guests,” says Schafer.

With 1,298 guest rooms, 43 suites, more than 50 meeting rooms and 60,000 square feet of meeting space, Grand Hyatt New York is appropriate for groups of any size. The Grand Club provides added luxury, offering elevator key access, complimentary breakfast, afternoon snacks and evening hors d’oeuvres.

The Broadmoor is welcoming a new 125,000-square-foot Exhibition Hall in spring 2020, an addition to the existing Broadmoor Hall, International Center and Colorado Hall to form “The Broadmoor Event Center.”  

The Broadmoor will be the only Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five Diamond awarded hotel in the country to operate a large on-site exhibition space.
