LuxeGetaways Magazine – Fall/Winter 2017 | You will be swept off your feet in a New York minute by the dramatic views of Gotham’s iconic skyline and the East River from the new Millennium Hilton New York One UN Plaza. The property has recently undergone a 68 million dollar renovation, and is now managed by Hilton. The renovation has resulted in expansive rooms and stunning suites – and in a city where location is everything, this hotel is close to many of the major New York City attractions and transportation hubs.
This landmark hotel is situated alongside the United Nations headquarters, and has long welcomed visitors – including many of the world’s most esteemed leaders, diplomats and heads of state. The hotel’s 439 guest rooms and suites; meetings and event spaces; and public areas and restaurant have all been updated. The renovation has fortunately preserved the distinctive architecture and layout of the original Kevin Roche-designed building.
The hotel is within walking distance (or a short Citi Bike ride) to Grand Central Terminal, the Empire State Building, Fifth Avenue, Times Square and the Broadway Theatre district; all making this a perfect location for both business travelers and tourists coming to New York City. With a 24-hour fitness center and a year round tennis court, everyone can find time in their schedule to stick to an exercise routine. Tip: If you are planning to travel to Manhattan in July, make sure to reserve your room well in advance as you will have the best seats in town from your room for the Macy*s 4th of July Fireworks.
Hotel guests can enjoy a variety of dining options without even needing to leave the property. The Skyline Club is an executive’s retreat on the 30th floor, and is the perfect place for breakfast or an after work cocktail. The Ambassador Grill is a modern, all-day dining destination that offers fresh, globally inspired fare including classic dishes and all-time favorites. The Ambassador Lounge is set within the hotel’s signature restaurant, and features an extensive menu of wine, beer and spirits for guests to unwind in a chic and casual setting. The UN Café is perfect for the guest “on the go” by serving freshly brewed coffee complemented by a wide selection of pastries, salads and sandwiches. The hotel also offers six adaptable meeting, function and exhibit spaces with panoramic views of New York City, including the hotel’s stunning ballroom, which can accommodate up to 300 guests.
