Renaissance New York Harlem Hotel is the tallest building north of Central Park and offers 211 guest rooms and suites. The property’s aesthetic is centered around a theatrical design with contemporary accommodations that combines the vibrant spirit and rich culture of Harlem with the polished glamor of the Harlem Renaissance era. 

Renaissance New York Harlem Hotel’s restaurant The Victoria was designed to become a neighborhood hot spot, encompassing a marble bar, dramatic lounge seating and a fifth-floor mezzanine overlooking the heart of the property. The menu, designed by Executive Chef Bobby Bouyer, offers a creative twist on modern global cuisine with nods to the Gulf Region and the American South.

Renaissance New York Harlem Hotel offers more than 9,000 square feet of meeting and event space across five fully customizable venues. The property’s event spaces can accommodate up to 300 people. 

Managed by Highgate, the Manhattan’s Kimpton Hotel Theta opened near Times Square, bringing another 364 guest rooms to the area and offering a completely redesigned property blending modern roots with high design, evoking a sense of serenity within one of New York City’s busiest neighborhoods. The 15-floor hotel is set in the nexus of Hell’s Kitchen and Times Square and offers a design inspired by the Theta brainwaves most present in moments of self-reflection, meditation and internal focus.

The lobby contains Cafe Otto, offering a “coffee window” for travelers on the go or those looking for a caffeine fix to start their day. Early this year, Kimpton Hotel Theta will welcome Bar Sprezzatura, a rooftop restaurant in partnership with TableOne Hospitality and inspired by the relaxed elegance of the Italian Riviera. The rooftop space will be able to host formal events and private dining experiences.
