Hard Rock New York
“New York City is one of the greatest cities in the world and we are honoured to open our doors to locals and travellers looking for a best in class hotel, dining, entertainment experience,” said Jim Allen, Chairman of Hard Rock International.
Hard Rock has had a presence for decades in the City, but this location will deliver an entirely new experience from the brand that’s been synonymous with music and entertainment for over 50 years.”
Uniquely situated between the Theatre District and Radio City Music Hall, Hard Rock Hotel New York will offer a backstage pass to the city’s historic Music Row.
Paying homage to the mecca of recording studios and music stores that once lined 48th Street, the hotel will offer live music across all public spaces with a dynamic and engaging approach to entertainment programming.
To spearhead the property’s interior design, Hard Rock Hotels enlisted the services of award-winning design firm Jeffrey Beers International to bring a music-infused vision to life, accented by legendary memorabilia honouring musicians from and inspired by New York City.
“We were inspired by New York’s bygone Jazz Age and its iconic speakeasies and super-theatres.
Upon seeing the design, guests feel instantly transported to a new, exciting, and engaging atmosphere that exudes entertaining energy and Hard Rock culture and history.”
– Architect Jeffrey Beers, Founder & CEO
Bold materials include lush dark woods, striking marbles, luxurious brass finishes, and tactile leather and velvet fabrics.
The colour palette is handsome and timeless, featuring the property’s signature blue, rich browns, warm golds and brass, as well as surprise pops of metallic silver, lush greens, and vibrant reds.
Throughout the design, an artistic expression of music is layered in meticulous detail.
In each space, guests discover a design or sculptural homage to either musical instruments, such as guitars and brass wind instruments, or to music notes and sound waves.
The 446 guestrooms are designed with striking blue tones and gold accents to mimic the magical light of New York City at dusk.
Guests will find iconic imagery of notable artists printed on glass doors along with sound wave carpet patterns and sculptural artwork above the headboards.
With a variety of room types ranging from well-appointed King Rooms to Platinum Suites with terraces, each features Kimono robes, Lavazza® espresso, Rock Spa® bath products, and high speed Wi-Fi to complete the act.
The upscale steakhouse in partnership with the New York Yankees, NYY Steak features dark wood panelled walls that will are complemented by autographs from famed players.
The main dishes are served on fine China inscribed with player numbers within the iconic franchise insignia.
The rooftop bar & lounge, RT60, delivers an effortlessly stylish scene, and a chance to soak in the city from above.
The visually unique space is layered with lush green toned fabrics, herringbone patterned wood flooring, and warm brass detailing.
The Venue on Music Row is the hotel’s show stopping feature with an extraordinary entertainment space spanning two floors inspired by New York from a bygone era when jazz clubs, speakeasies, and dinner-theatre performances reigned supreme.
The Venue aims to be a must-visit destination, playing host to world class entertainment performances as well as fashion shows, after-parties, and gala dinners for some of the city’s most sought-after moments.
The newly constructed hotel features 446 exquisitely designed guest rooms and specialty suites offering floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase the city’s vibrant energy.
Sitting atop the 34th floor is the jewel of the Rock Star Suite, a bi-level glass-enclosed penthouse with expansive city views, original contemporary artwork, bespoke music memorabilia, and one of the largest terraces for entertaining in New York City.
This hotel is not only a showcase to the music that helped make New York such an iconic city but it is also the most impressive Hard Rock hotel that we’ve seen to date.
