The Renwick Hotel New York City, Hilton’s Curio Collection was established in the ‘Roaring Twenties,’ in which age was characterized by flappers, radio and the Art Deco movement.
Housed in 1928 as a residence of long-term accommodation, the hotel Renwick takes inspiration from its former tenants. This residence is the birthplace of writers, scholars and noted authors-such as Thomas Mann and Ernest Hemingway. Their work influenced a variety of elements in the rooms and suites. The name of the hotel comes from James Renwick Jr., the most well known architect in New York for his construction of the St. Patrick Cathedral.
Stonehill & Taylor, a New York-based architect and interior design firm, rethought the room and paid tribute to the 1920’s cultural and architectural developments and the people of the past. The 173 rooms and suites at the hotel have a loft design, with customized facilities that relate to objects found in the studio of artists, such as TV stands with stainless steels, tablecloths that are reminiscent of the bench of artist’s work, flat-file cabinets and a built carpet which is a simulation of paint-splattered cement.
The historic hotel provides a fitness center, business center and free Wi-Fi internet access. The origami package, hanging from the tight cork boards over the desk in the guest rooms is a fascinating feature of the hotel. Another is an interactive postcard, which guests can send directly to the hotel through the original mail box next to the bank of the elevator. When picked, the design is presented in the hotel or even used as a postage card for the future hotel.
The hotel highlights functional art created by 19 local artists from New York who have been tapped to produce exclusively hotel works complementing public spaces and guest rooms. Hand-painted skyline blinds hang in every room in New York City. Ceramic cups with F one-of-a-kind excerpt. Sit on each guest desk, Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. The signs, “Don’t interrupt” are in the form of paint pins hanging from door pins. Each room has another hand-painted artist’s stool on the desk and a quote from inspiration. Artist Gregory Siff of Brooklyn designed the mural at the lobby of the hotel which is a signature piece that pays homage to the skylines of New York City and the former inhabitants of the building.
