Millennium Hotels & Resorts has completed a $70 million renovation to its North American flagship hotel, ONE UN New York, an iconic hotel situated at the heart of the International United Nations Headquarter enclave.
In keeping with the distinctive architecture and design of the original Kevin Roche-designed building, the multi-million-dollar renovation has been thoughtfully carried out, bringing back to life the original elegance and stature of the hotel that has welcomed world leaders, diplomats and heads of state since its opening in 1976.
The renovation encompassed all 439 guest rooms and suites, meetings and event spaces, public areas and the Ambassador Grill Restaurant and Bar.
Throughout the project, Millennium Hotels & Resorts collaborated with architect and interior design consultants, Didier Gomez Interiors and DYAMI Architecture PC in order to realise the vision of the hotel.
The transformation has resulted in significant front-of-house improvements along with upgraded facilities and equipment, enhancing the overall guest experience.
The spacious interiors of the redesigned guest rooms and suites at ONE UN New York are characterised by warm bronze and taupe hues, creating a stylish sanctuary where guests can relax away from the buzz of the city below.
Ranging from 240 square-feet to a generous 510 square-feet (22 square-metres to 47 square-metres), each of the rooms and suites combine understated luxury with modern amenities.
Paul Rene Lee, general manager of ONE UN New York, commented: “We are delighted with the outcome of the recent renovation to ONE UN New York.
“The complete transformation is a testament to our concerted effort to ensure that our guest experience remains unparalleled, without having compromised the rich history and heritage of the hotel.”
Complementing the new guest experience, all 281 associates at ONE UN New York underwent an extensive training programme throughout the renovation, focused on maintaining and exceeding the high standard of service that goes hand in hand with outstanding hospitality.
Newly-designed staff uniforms together with new guest room linens and amenities complete the experience.
