W New York Union Square completes $15 million renovation

W New York - Union Square has unveiled the completion of a multi-layered renovation project that merges traditional and contemporary styles. The transformation is part of the W brand’s ongoing, $100 million commitment to the renovation of more than 11 of its properties across North America, and includes a full re-design of the hotel’s 270 guestrooms and top suites, W Living Room, Todd English’s iconic Olives New York and destination bar Lilium by Gerber Group (previously Underbar).

Inspired by the neighbourhood’s junction of uptown and downtown New York City, the renovation also preserves original design details of the landmark 1911 Beaux Arts building, including its turn-of-the century Great Room with 23-foot high gilded ceilings and grand windows which was restored late last year.
