New York on the move

Latest developments in New York on the business-travel front were outlined in London last week by tourist office NYC and Company president Fred Dixon and senior vice-president Chris Heywood.

“The city continues to attract new developments in luxury hotels, boutique and lifestyle brands, independent and affiliated properties, ranging in size from just 14 rooms to more than 900,” Dixon said.

“The opportunities for any business traveller are immense and great options exist at every price point and length of stay. New York City has rooms to suit all travellers’ needs and preferences.” 

New York today has more than 109,000 hotel rooms on offer, with at least another 26,000 in the short- and long-term pipeline, with 11 new hotels opening since January, he added. 

They include the renovated InterContinental New York Barclay with new meeting spaces and the first Riu Plaza, which opened in March bringing the Spanish brand to Times Square with 647 new-build rooms. 

Also new are Melia Hotels’ Innside New York, the 28-storey, 348-room Renaissance New York on Manhattan’s west side and numerous small boutique properties in Midtown, the Lower East Side and Downtown. 

“NYC is still host to the most dynamic development environment in the US,” Dixon noted. “By year-end 2016, we could have more than 120,000 rooms in active inventory.”
