Renaissance New York Midtown Hotel Throws Grand Unveiling Celebration
The tag line, ‘It’s Business Unusual’ was the experience Thursday evening as party goers celebrated the unveiling of the flagship, Renaissance New York Midtown Hotel located in the heart of the Garment District. The fête brought the world of music, fashion, entertainment, design, and culinary together on West 35th Street to view the world’s first digitally enhanced and living hotel. DJ’s Harley Viera-Newton, Timo Weiland, Alexandra Richards, and Franco V manned the turntables throughout the evening as attendees sampled delectable bites of sea urchin crostini with torched lardo and griddled pimento cheese sandwiches by Andrew Zimmern. Performances by Wyclef Jean and The Knocks even had supermodel Chanel Iman groove to the beat during their live set held at the hotel’s restaurant, Rock & Reilly’s.
This new 348-room hotel boasts to go beyond the ordinary as it appeals to the Next Generation business traveler that desires to blend with the local neighborhood and its culture. It responds to human movement and features a living wall acting as the hotel’s virtual concierge, The Renaissance Navigator, highlighting exclusive neighborhood experiences and charms. We are certain this flagship will draw in the fashionable crowd this summer as it also offers one of the largest outdoor spaces in Manhattan. The 8,000 square foot terrace features a retractable roof, private cabanas and two-stocked bars.
