The Renwick offers a haven for creative types and architecture buffs.
Named for renowned American architect James Renwick, Jr. and inspired by the former artists and writers who once made their homes here (including F. Scott Fitzgerald and John Steinbeck), The Renwick both honors and celebrates its colorful past with a wealth of clever features and design details. The boutique hotel’s Midtown East address makes the perfect character-rich setting for this property, full of history that echoes the stories these walls would tell if they could. Designers Stonehill & Taylor breathed new life into the 1920s-era building while still managing to faithfully preserve its creative, independent spirit with gallery rooms and suites with whimsical details like art easels, paints, inks, pens and writing paper. The property skillfully marries 173 lofted accommodations (some with private balconies) with modern amenities such as free Wi-Fi, customized Apotheke bath products and a contemporary workout facility.
