Trump International Hotel & Tower New York Plans $30 Million Makeover
Donald Trump's flagship hotel, the Trump International Hotel & Tower New York is getting a little sprucing up. A $30 million renovation will update the 167 guest rooms and suites beginning in January 2010. The renovation will happen in two stages timed for the slower New York City travel months, one half in January through April, and the other half in June through September. The hotel will remain open. The new decor will have a color palette of gray and aubergine with accents of ivory and caramel. Furnishings will be done in velvets and silky fabrics with rosewood, mahogany, maple and walnut finishes. Schonbek crystal chandeliers, purple velvet draperies and silk accent walls will complete the glamorous look. The renovation will be finished by next Labor Day.
