Renovation boosts New York Radisson

Following a nearly $20 million renovation, The Radisson Lexington Hotel has emerged with world-class amenities and six distinct dining and entertainment outlets that have positioned the hotel as a top destination in New York City.  Located in the heart of Manhattan’s fashionable East Side, the Radisson Lexington Hotel offers guests the best of New York City all under one roof. Visitors can experience several different types of world cuisine, a topnotch dance club and superior athletic facilities without ever leaving hotel grounds. The 27-story hotel has been a hospitality landmark for decades, and now features 705 newly renovated guest rooms including a variety of suites, as well as rooms with terraces, in addition to spacious meeting facilities, luxurious amenities and a fully redesigned lobby.  The Radisson Lexington Hotel has a long, illustrious history. Most notably, the hotel features a penthouse suite that served as the residence for “Hall of Famer” Joe DiMaggio during the eighteen seasons he played for the New York Yankees.  The aptly named Centerfield Suite is adorned with granite, marble and mahogany furniture, and features rare photos of DiMaggio on and off the field in addition to a terrace that offers a sweeping view of Midtown Manhattan from eighteen stories high. Marilyn Monroe was also a guest of the suite when the two were married.    “Since 1929, the Radisson Lexington Hotel has welcomed global leaders, star-studded celebrities, famous sports icons and business executives.  Seventy-five years later, we remain the hotel of choice for such clientele and continue to be called home by today’s sophisticated traveler,” said Brendan Moraes, General Manager of the Radisson Lexington Hotel.
