Grayson Hotel debuts

Hyatt Hotels Corporation has opened the Grayson Hotel, introducing The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand to New York City.

Located in Midtown Manhattan and steps from Fifth Avenue and Bryant Park, the hotel occupies a brand-new building at 30 W. 39th St., and tells the story of its surrounding neighborhoods: Murray Hill, named for the Irish-born merchant who came to New York in 1753; the Garment District, America’s fashion epicenter since 1919; and most recently, Hudson Yards, a sprawling 28-acre neighborhood built over a historic rail yard.

Each of Grayson Hotel’s 296 guestrooms have been designed with the destination in mind, showcasing a collection of artwork curated by Indie Walls, a full-service global art consultancy, highlighting historical sites in New York City. Guestrooms and suites feature the juxtaposition of grace and grit—interiors with exposed concrete ceilings, bathrooms with subway tiles, and bespoke artwork designed to evoke an authentic sense of Manhattan style.

Decor elements in both the rooms and suites feature vintage books and objects that represent industrial accomplishments, past and present, fully immersing guests in the unique story of the hotel. Three interconnecting hotel suites on the fourth floor offer private balconies with views of landmarks old and new.

In-room amenities include a butler-style mini-bar service offering to-go craft cocktails and locally sourced snacks and beverages. Additional amenities include Lather bath and body products in bamboo lemongrass scent; custom-designed “hoodie” bathrobes and a bronze statue of the hotel’s French Bulldog mascot, Grayson. Guests will also be met with a 24-hour fitness center, GRIT, including SoulCycle commercial bikes, TRX treadmills, a StairMaster HIIT machine, dumbbells, cross trainers and more.
