Renaissance New York Times Square Unveils New Guestrooms and Suites With Multi-Million-Dollar Refresh

USA, New York City, New York. July 15, 2019

Renaissance New York Times Square continues to provide travelers with unparalleled experiences in the heart of Manhattan with the official debut of its completely redesigned 317 guestrooms and suites, following the earlier completion of its unique terrace suites. The hotel's chic renovations pay homage to its bustling Times Square neighborhood and the area's evolution as an iconic hub steeped in theatrical history.

"This redesign fully encapsulates the pulsating energy of this city," said Renaissance New York Times Square General Manager Christine Devers. "We've created an authentic New York experience for guests to discover from the moment they enter their rooms."

Dash Design, a leading NYC-based interior design and branding agency by founder David Ashen, was selected to spearhead the makeover. When envisioning the hotel's new look, the firm aimed to inspire guests with a sense of endless discovery and unexpected twists at every turn.

"Every aspect of each guestroom is a piece of art," said Dash Design President David Ashen. "We created a local pied-à-terre for guests with a vision to capture the pulsating energy of Times Square while paying reference to Broadway's theatrical roots."

Color palettes depict shades synonymous with New York City - cement gray represents the concrete jungle, white mimics markings on the street's blacktop, and yellow accents evoke the New York City taxi. Guestroom windows and their ombre window treatments serve as frames for the theater that is Times Square. Above the bed, the ceiling steps in as a matte canvas featuring strokes of glossy, white feathers, a nod to a festive spirit of theater district. Refurbished bathrooms are outfitted with refinished vanities, cheeky artwork, and mirrors featuring a frosted outline of the city's famed skyline. Carefully curated touches include multifunctional, custom-designed furniture, which transform from seating to storage, and NYC snow globes, which provide playful moments.

In essence, the design invites the guest to decide how to work, relax, and play in their personal space. At every turn is a moment of discovery.

Social Media: Social Listening Tools

The reach and influence of social media is staggering. Nearly 3 billion people use social media daily, posting a range of messages, selfies, images, and everything in-between. According to HubSpot, almost 4 million posts are uploaded to the major social networks every single minute! That's an astounding amount of content and it is crucial for hotels to skillfully use social media in order to effectively compete. From establishing a suitable brand identity and voice to creating content across all the major networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.), the goal is to actively engage consumers and to eventually convert them to customers. Some hotels are initiating online contests as a way to attract new customers, while others are rewarding customers with discounts who subscribe to the their email lists or follow their social media pages. Another recent strategy is to employ social media listening tools that track what people are posting online about their businesses. These tools allow hotels to monitor - or listen to - what's being said about a brand across the entire social web, and this can prove to be very valuable, unfiltered information. Social listening permits hotels to be aware of people's opinions about their business, industry or competitors, and some of these tools even listen beyond social media platforms. They also monitor publicly available information on blogs, forums, news outlets and websites. Some listening tools are more focused on gathering and analyzing data, while others offer more engagement-oriented features, which allow hotels to interact with people right from the platform. Often the information that is gleaned from these listening tools ends up being the most authentic, unbiased insights a business can get. The February Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to successfully integrate social media strategies into their operations.
