Spain-based IBEROSTAR Hotels & Resorts has revealed plans to open two new hotels in New York City and Miami, expanding its footprint into the US.

Located at 70 Park Avenue, at the centre of Manhattan, the New York hotel will be a 4-star boutique hotel featuring 205 rooms spread across 16 floors and is scheduled to be inaugurated on 15 June.

The central location of the hotel places it at the vicinity of the key tourist attractions including Times Square, Grand Central Station, and the headquarters of the United Nations, Bryant Park and the Flatiron District.

Grupo Iberostar America vice-chairman and CEO José Antonio González said: "Here at Grupo Iberostar, we are extremely excited to launch a new hotel in New York, one of the most vibrant cities in the world.

"With its prime location and focus on service, this new hotel is the perfect way to mark our entrance into the US market.

"This property will be a valued addition to our portfolio by our current customers and will also allow us to reach a new audience in the US market."

The hotel will be built inside an iconic stone and red brick building, which will feature a vintage design with a modern touch following a recent series of renovations.

The ground floor of the hotel will serve as a lobby and will feature an array of cuisine options such as Silverleaf Coffee & Tea and Silverleaf Tavern, a chic baroque-inspired lounge.

IBEROSTAR will open its second hotel, IBEROSTAR Berkeley, in the famous Art Deco district of South Beach, Miami, this December.

It will be built in a renovated 1940’s Art Deco building featuring 96 boutique rooms.
