With a Nod to the Roaring 20's and the Jazz Era, NYLO Hotels Shares Design
Details of the Soon to Open 285-room NYLO New York City

DALLAS, March 25, 2013 -- NYLO Hotels LLC today released design details for the upcoming NYLO New York City, set to open this summer at 77th and Broadway on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. With a nod to the Roaring 20's and the Jazz Era, the hotel's design scheme by architecture and design firm Stonehill & Taylor will capture the cultural and historical essence of New York City while maintaining the urban, industrial style that is the hallmark of the NYLO brand. Stonehill & Taylor worked closely with NYLO Hotels and its design consultant, Stephane Dupoux of Dupoux Design, to infuse a distinctly New York-feel into the NYLO design philosophy—a mix of comfortable and cutting-edge with touches of fun and whimsy.

A seamless blend of the elegant and the industrial will be on display in all of the property's 285 guest rooms and suites, which are already under renovation. Rooms will feature a warm palette of grays, blues, and other natural tones paired with pops of vibrant color from accents such as hanging lamps and metal doors on storage cabinets and nightstands. Each room will be outfitted with all new custom designed furnishings, the award-winning NYLO NYTE bed, and other signature NYLO features including floor-to-ceiling decorative ultra-suede drapery, luxury linens and towels, and original artwork. A number of rooms offer balconies and stunning views of the New York City skyline, Central Park, and the Hudson River.

"This is NYLO's second conversion property, and our first in New York City," explained Michael Mueller , CEO, NYLO Hotels. "This property is a diamond in the rough: it has historic charm and unique character that reflect its surroundings, larger-than-average guest rooms, plenty of natural light and outdoor space, great restaurant venues and the opportunity to add a destination lobby bar. On top of that, it's in a quintessential New York City neighborhood that's ideal for business and leisure travelers: minutes from almost anywhere in Manhattan and a short walk from Central Park, with the charm and amenities of a residential neighborhood."

As with each NYLO property, NYLO New York City will showcase hundreds of pieces of original artwork from emerging local artists. Placed throughout the hotel's guest rooms and public spaces, the paintings capture the spirit and energy of New York City. The artwork was commissioned through a recent contest that sought original paintings created specifically for the hotel.

In addition to updated guest rooms and suites, NYLO New York City will feature a brand new lobby and bar that will complement the hotel's overall design aesthetic while showcasing the building's historic details and industrial core. NYLO New York City is also home to three highly popular and innovative restaurants: Serafina Upper West Side, Geisha Table and Red Farm , which is also currently under construction and scheduled to make its Upper West Side debut in the next few months. NYLO New York City—owned by an affiliate of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.—will replace the existing On The Ave Hotel, which will remain open during renovations. The property will be NYLO's fifth hotel, joining its other properties in Dallas, Texas; Las Colinas, Texas; Plano, Texas and Warwick, Rhode Island.
