Which iconic city center hotel just completed an exterior renovation resulting in a restored facade?
Answer: If you guessed The Plaza (1845) in New York, New York you guessed correctly!
The Plaza, one of New York's celebrated and historic hotels, is pleased to announce the completion of an extensive exterior renovation, presenting a brilliantly restored façade. A treasured part of New York history, The Plaza Hotel's elegant architecture has been a fixture in Manhattan's landscape since the French Renaissance château-style hotel first opened in 1907.
Renovation of the façade, which was designed by Henry Janeway Hardenbergh, included the replacement of ornamental terracotta as well as the extensive restoration of deteriorated terracotta, brick, and marble.
The Plaza originally served as a residence for wealthy New Yorkers. The first to register were Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt. For those who rented rooms on a nightly basis, the cost started at $2.50 per night. Since then The Plaza has served as a luxurious home away from home for a wide variety of guests, from presidents and royalty to Hollywood stars and professional athletes. Today the hotel continues to welcome discerning guests with the pomp and elegance of a true luxury hotel.
