New York City’s Moderne Hotel undergoes complete redesign

NEW YORK CITY Amsterdam Hospitality Group has tapped Goodman Charlton LLC to execute a complete redesign of The Moderne Hotel in Manhattan.

The lavish restoration, slated to be completed this month, will consist of a revamp of the hotel’s interiors, including the 40 guestrooms, communal lounge space and business center, creating an aesthetic that is reflective of the neighborhood where high art meets the daily hustle of commerce.

The renovation of The Moderne will combine the essence of an intimate Europe hotel with the glamour and style of a chic New York City townhouse. Goodman Charlton’s redesign will combine some of the hotel’s existing small units to create six loft-like suites with exposed brick walls and high ceilings.

Guestrooms will feature oversized tufted white leather beds, polished stainless steel desks and a Charles Eames-inspired black and white woven carpet. In addition to donning bold original abstract artwork, each guestroom reflects the whimsical spirit of the 1950s Color Field art movement. Refurbished bathrooms boast stainless steel tiles and an oversized backlit mirror. Bath amenities are custom-formulated, based on the essence of spearmint. 

The redesign will also give life to a large communal living room and lounge space on the second floor that will feature silver leather sofas and a cozy brick fireplace, as well as numerous iPad docks. In addition, guests can enjoy a wet bar to relax, lounge and socialize.

“We want to deliver a true boutique hotel experience to our guests in the heart of a bustling area of Manhattan,” says T. Blake Danner, executive vice president of the hotels division of Amsterdam Hospitality. “With only five rooms on each floor, the redesign of The Moderne will allow guests to enjoy secluded solace and a truly intimate experience.”
