    Martha Washington Hotel

    The landmark Martha Washington Hotel made its official debut under Chelsea Hotels founder Ed Scheetz. The unveiling marks the first major revamp of the property since Scheetz rebranded the former King and Grove hotel family and transformed the boutique NoMad property into a full service hotel.

    The 29 East 29th Street Renaissance Revival style hotel, formerly known as the King and Grove New York, underwent millions of dollars in renovations to bring the property — a former all-women’s hotel that has operated under multiple names since 1903 — into the 21st century as a luxury boutique property.

    Hotel Chelsea’s controversial and much-delayed conversion from a mostly rent-stabilized residential building to an upscale boutique hotel was hit with a stop-work order last month, after former owners the Chetrit Group and David Bistricer requested the cancellation of Department of Buildings permits authorizing the work.

    The tenant evictions at Hotel Chelsea show no signs of letting up, even though Joseph Chetrit and David Bistricer no longer have an ownership stake in the historic property at 222 West 23rd Street. King & Grove, led by CEO Ed Scheetz, bought out Chetrit and Bistricer’s interest last month, and has moved forward with evictions against tenants of an eight-unit brownstone known as the Townhouse.

  • Ed Scheetz, the former CEO of Morgan Hotel Group, is now heading up King & Grove

    From the May issue:  Walter “Ed” Scheetz might be one of the biggest New York City hotel players that you’ve never heard of — but that could soon change.

    Having cut his teeth at Apollo Real Estate Advisors and then working with famed hotelier Ian Schrager, Scheetz disappeared from the city’s hotel-and-nightlife scene for several years. Now, in what could be a storied second act, he’s quietly reemerged and is partnering with the head of a major real estate family: Joseph Chetrit. [more]

    The saga of the Surf Lodge has generated countless recent headlines, between its hundreds of municipal code citations and a sale to a technology entrepreneur earlier this year. But now, the former owners are blaming a minority investor that allegedly opened a competing restaurant for some of the property’s financial strife.

    The former owners have accused King & Grove hotels, the Manhattan-based boutique chain, of mismanaging and misappropriating funds from the Montauk hotspot before launching a rival hotel-restaurant called Ruschmeyer’s. [more]
