strandnyc

The Strand, a new 177-room hotel in Manhattan’s fashion district will debut August 2009.  Housed within a contemporary metal and glass structure on 37th street off Fifth Avenue, The Strand blends old-world glamour with modern day amenities.  The hotel is a new build designed by New York architect Gene Kaufman. Rack rates for the hotel will start at $325.

Among the highlights: a celebrated restaurant making its New York debut (A Fish Called Avalon, the award-winning South Beach dining fixture for 20 years); and an open-air rooftop bar that features a retractable roof and magnificent views of the Empire State Building.  

The Strand is the latest project of entrepreneur Don Glassie, president of Newport-based Atlantic Stars Hotels and Cruises.  He tapped Lisa Knight of ABI Design & Construction to infuse the hotel with 1930’s Hollywood glamour, yet adhere to today’s contemporary definition of comfort and luxury.

Other special features of the hotel will be a multi-use event/meeting space accommodating up to 350, a fitness center with massage services, and a comfortable and well-stocked library and espresso lounge with a daily selection of international newspapers.
