In recognition of the continually changing desires of its guests, the Soho Grand Hotel has added ten beautifully designed suites for those who want a bit more room when they travel.
Online PR News – 25-August-2010 – – From the Soho Grand Hotel in New York comes ten stunning new suites, each with their own living room and bedroom, allowing guests to immerse themselves in luxury and fine design.
The Soho Grand Hotel has just added ten beautifully designed suites to their room collection. Each suite features separate living and sleeping quarters, custom furnishings and high end fixtures. The airy one bedroom suites can sleep four comfortably with the option of adding a second bedroom to accommodate up to six adults.
The addition of the suites follows the huge success of the Hotel’s Penthouse Lofts, which were introduced in 2004. For Tony Fant, President and COO of Grand Hotels NYC, “the call for the suites was obvious after recognizing the shifting needs of our guests,” many of whom have been with the Hotels from the beginning. “Their requests have changed; many have built families and require more space when traveling.” The suites are ideal for those staying at New York hotels for longer periods, traveling with their families, or just desiring more room.
The Soho Grand Hotel looked to celebrated interior designer Bill Sofield, who has worked with the Manhattan hotel since its inception, to bring their vision to fruition; “With the design of the suites for the 16th floor, we took advantage of the incredibly expansive views, bringing the relationship of the city right into the rooms. To impart a more personal experience, the layout of each suite was carefully considered to create spaces for entertaining, relaxing and working. The final result is a place guests should feel right at home, albeit with all the amenities of a five star hotel.”
Sofield employed rich materials and textures in palettes of chocolate, champagne, and taupe. Solid steel, marble, and wood are softened by luxurious fabrics like velvet, silk, and supple leathers. Ebonized ash plank wood flooring is strewn with vintage area rugs. An appreciation for artistry is visible in the selection of custom and vintage pieces and in the workmanship of the cabinets, wire-glass mirror, and coffee table made of recycled newspapers. Tables inspired by renowned artist Jasper Johns and the master bath’s wall covering was designed by famed New Yorker illustrator, Saul Steinberg.
The suites are located on a private floor of the Soho Grand Hotel, accessible only with an exclusive key card. Each room is equipped with wall-mounted flat-screen plasma televisions and iPod dock & speakers. Working desks have a 27-inch iMacs and an iPad pre-loaded with GrandLifeNYC’s carefully curated downtown City Guide.
