The New Yorker Hotel opened as one of the premiere hotel's of its time in 1930. This 43 story art deco building that sits on 8th Ave has been the center of the city's charm and hospitality for decades. When the designers Sara Duffy and Wally Aubuchon at Stonehill & Taylor were asked to help with the renovation in late 2013, they turned to CM Hospitality Carpets (then known as Clayton Miller Hospitality Carpets) to design the corridor and guestroom carpets. The Parker Company was the purchasing firm for this project and CM finished the project coordination with Linda Hein, their Senior Vice President.

The design stayed true to the art deco themed building but with a bit of a modern twist. The use of subtle blues calmed the spaces giving it an elegant yet projessional look. S&T chose to use a custom 42 oz tapistron carpet construction for all of their corridors. The simplistic mid-scale pattern added to the ambiance and sophistication of the areas that carries guests to their well appointed guestrooms.

Nikola Tesla, the famous electrical inventor, was one of many famous people who made the New Yorker Hotel their home. It is said that daily you could see Tesla leave his room to feed his beloved pigeons in near by Bryant Park. He mysterious lived and died in Room 3327 at age 86.
Big Bands played in the New Yorker Hotel's halls in the 30's and 40's when the hotel was one of the main hangout for the socialites.

The designers chose two color combinations for their guestrooms - a blue scheme and a brown scheme. Both are equally elegant and compliment the modern furnishings that were chosen. Art deco design was a major design influence in NYC's architecture and continues to thrive there through revitalized renovations like the New Yorker Hotel.
