NEW YORK, Nov. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of continued, brand-wide investments in its U.S. properties, Millennium Hotels and Resorts has announced the second phase of renovations for ONE UN New York. Along with the $30-million makeover of 154 West Tower rooms and suites in 2012, the total investment will be $70 million once this next phase is complete.
The refurbishments will kick off on November 15 when part of the hotel will close to begin work on the transformation of 285 guest rooms and suites in the East Tower. Upon completion in Spring 2016, the spacious accommodations, ranging in size from 240 square-feet to a generous 510 square-feet for the one-bedroom duplex suites, will combine understated luxury with modern amenities and stylish, warm interiors in bronze and taupe hues.

"We look forward to showcasing the new look to our distinguished guests," said Colin Wang, Vice President Operations, North America. "The completion of refurbishments to ONE UN New York will make it the sixth Millennium property to see extensive upgrades in the past two years. At this time we also have work being done at our iconic Millennium Biltmore Los Angeles and Millennium Hotel Durham that will also be unveiled soon. It is an exciting time for our brand."
