Hilton has announced the reopening the Martinique New York on Broadway, a Curio Collection hotel, following a multi-million dollar “top to bottom transformation.”
The property features 531 refurbished guest rooms with new bathrooms and restored public spaces with “new grandiose velvet blue and gold furnishings and an expansive art collection,” and design elements that pay homage to the 1920s.
The Beaux-Art property, originally built in 1897, was designed by Henry J Hardenbergh. Over the years, it has flown the flags of brands that included Holiday Inn and Radisson, before joining Hilton’s Curio Collection in 2019.
The hotel will welcome “several new, inventive food and beverage venues” next year, including an American grill concept on Broadway, a cocktail lounge on 33rd Street “harkening back to the era of great New York hotel bars featuring a small plates menu,” a coffee kiosk and an “innovative donut concept.”
Meanwhile, guests “can enjoy a preview of the team’s culinary vision within the hotel at The Early Edition, an intimate setting featuring breakfast and an all-day, market-driven menu.” In addition, as part of the renovation, the hotel also offers a new fitness center.
Hilton’s Curio Collection launched in 2014, and recently passed the milestone of 100 properties worldwide. Martinique New York on Broadway is one of two Curio properties in New York, joining the The Renwick in Midtown.
The reopening of the Martinique comes amid a flurry of Hilton debuts and relaunches in Manhattan, including the 1,878-room Hilton Midtown, which reopened in October, and the anticipated debut of the third Motto brand property coming Dec. 20.
“For over a century, Martinique New York on Broadway has elegantly reflected the rich history of its vibrant and dynamic surroundings,” said Dan Briks, general manager, Martinique New York on Broadway, Curio Collection by Hilton. “Just as it was during the Gilded Age, the hotel remains a symbol of grand hospitality and we’re excited to debut its new, reimagined look.”
