The New York Helmsley Hotel is set to undergo a $65m renovation, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide and Host Hotels & Resorts have announced.

Following the extensive re-branding initiative, the 774-room hotel in New York, US, will fly the Westin flag.

The hotel will debut in 2012 as Westin New York and will be the second Westin Hotel in New York City, accompanying the Westin Times Square.

According to Starwood, more than 15,000ft² of meeting space will be renovated and the hotel’s 300ft² guestrooms will be redesigned.

The lobby bar / restaurant has been planned for an extension to 42nd street and the entire façade of the building will be completely transformed.
