NEW YORK — Renaissance, a Marriott brand, has opened its third hotel in Manhattan this week with the Renaissance New York Chelsea Hotel located at 112 W. 25th Street. With 39 floors and 430 feet high, the hotel is one of the tallest buildings in the Chelsea neighborhood and also features one of the highest rooftop pools in the city,offering 360-degree views of NY.
Located on the former site of the iconic Antiques Garage flea market, the hotel pays homage to the site’s history and the area’s antique shops with a theatrical design concept by architecture and interior design firm Stonehill Taylor. Drawing inspiration from the surrounding neighborhood, spaces within the hotel aim to surprise and delight guests with unexpected moments, each thoughtfully designed to tell a story.
“Renaissance New York Chelsea Hotel encourages guests to discover this iconic location with a sense of reimagined curiosity,” said George Fleck, vice president of global brand marketing & management, Renaissance Hotels. “This new hotel, coupled with our significant growth and renovation strategy in North America, further reinforces our brand’s global commitment to ensuring that guests experience the DNA of the neighborhood through our dramatic design and engaging guest experiences – ultimately leaving with a new appreciation of the destination.”

Additionally, the brand is set to grow in New York City over the next two years with hotels in both Flushing and Harlem.

Our guests have access to new, stunningly appointed amenities and accommodations, but also a connection to the neighborhood, which is an integral part of a Renaissance Hotels stay.”
