The New York Palace possesses a prestigious heritage. More than a century ago, Henry Villard, one of the nation's most prominent financiers, commissioned McKim, Mead & White to create a residence of singular style. Constructed in 1882, that residence became known as The Villard Houses. Over the next century, the residence would change from private homes to offices for the Archdiocese and later, corporate offices for internationally known companies.
In the mid-1970s, the Archdiocese of New York, owners of the land, cleared the way for a hotel development that would incorporate this unique property, gracefully blending the landmark 1882 Villard Houses with a contemporary 55-story tower. The hotel opened in 1980 as The Helmsley Palace.
The New York Palace recently completed an all-encompassing $140-million renovation project that transformed a landmark architectural gem into the premier modern hotel in Midtown Manhattan. The 18-month renovation project rethought, upgraded, and perfected every aspect of your experience at this legendary destination - upscale accommodations, distinctive dining destinations and extraordinary event spaces all received intuitive updates. Through this perfect blend of past and present, the legacy of this historic New York City hotel continues, providing residents and guests with a distinctive experience at a truly iconic New York City hotel.
