The Hotel Roger Williams in Murray Hill, now known as the Roger, will be opening June 1, and the hotel’s publicity team released a rendering of the lobby and a photograph of a renovated hotel room to The Real Deal today.

As Crain’s reported, the hotel, at 131 Madison Avenue, at the corner 31st Street, is undergoing a $10 million renovation, including a makeover of the hotel’s 194 rooms, restaurant and lounge. A spokesperson told The Real Deal that 60 percent of the rooms are completed and available for hotel guests.

Room renovations began Jan. 1 and renovation of the lobby, including lounge, bar and restaurant, began March 26. Everything’s expected to be complete by June 1, when the Roger will officially launch in its new incarnation.

JRK Hotel Group, which owns and operates the Roger Williams as well as three hotels in California and one in Tennessee, brought in famed hospitality guru Steven Kamali as a consultant for the the design of the public spaces, plus its food and beverage selection (note: correction appended). The hotel’s new restaurant, according to the spokesperson, will be an American bistro. The spokesperson said roll-out of the hotel’s food and beverage spaces won’t happen until late May. — Zachary Kussin
