Texas-based boutique hotel chain NYLO has completed the $20 million transformation of a quaint Upper West Side inn into a 1920s-style hotel which is now open to the public.
The 13-year-old On the Ave hotel, located on West 77th Street a short walk away from the Museum of Natural History and Central Park, has the loft-like ambiance characteristic of NYLO’s other hotels, Michael Dwyer, director of sales at the company, told DNAinfo.
“This is a cozy industrial feel,” Dwyer said, and emphasized the expansion of the lobby, and the exposed brick walls.
Designed by architects Stonehill & Taylor and Stephanie Dupoux, the hotel will also feature a bar called LOCL which will serve Prohibition-era cocktails – such as an Old Fashioned and Strawberry Bramble – Dwyer added. [DNAinfo] – Hiten Samtani
