Grand Hyatt New York Debuts Big Conference Level Reno




Conference room at the Grand Hyatt New York

The Grand Hyatt New York in Midtown Manhattan recently debuted a multi-million dollar renovation of its Conference Level, including 12,000 square feet of meeting space and 18 breakout rooms. The new project marks the first major renovation at the hotel since a refresh of its guestrooms and public spaces in 2011. 

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. The designers chose material that would reflect Grand Central’s vitality and kinetic energy, most notably silver and metallic wall coverings from Wolf Gordon and Koroseal. The silver and metallic, along with a brown and blue color palette, aims to reflect the turn of the century style of Grand Central Terminal. Other aspects of the design aim to evoke a warm living room environment that complements the existing spaces of the hotel.

The design incorporates unique elements such as a barn door for a conference room and a custom drink case that encourages meetings guests to have a less formal office experience. The walls are adorned with artwork and photographs of Grand Central Terminal, curated to complement the interiors. Unlike in other projects where artwork is the last step of the design process, Nemaworkshop started with consideration of the art and chose photographs of this iconic landmark that focused on abstract elements of the terminal, both inside and out, the hotel said. They also added new technologies, including a digital touch screen for wayfinding.

The Grand Hyatt New York has a total of over 60,000 square feet of meeting space and 1,298 guestrooms, including 43 suites.
