Historic Manhattan Hotel Wraps Meeting Space Revamps

NEW YORK, N.Y.

The Lexington New York City, a historic midtown Manhattan hotel, is in the final stages of a multi-million dollar renovation – including a full redo of their meeting spaces.

The Lexington New York City features three modern meeting rooms on the mezzanine level with more than 1,000 square feet of flexible function space. All meeting rooms vary in size, accommodating intimate gatherings of 8-10 professionals or larger conferences of up to 50. Each space is equipped with state-of-the-art wireless technology, professional administrative support, and access to a complimentary business center. The Lexington New York City is also able to provide food and beverage services upon request and houses a Starbucks located in the hotel lobby.

The Lexington has played host to some of the country’s most notable personalities and exclusive groups. Actor Arthur Godfrey entertained in The Hawaiian Room; actress Dorothy Lamour was a regular guest; The Playboy Club occupied multiple areas of the hotel; and Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe lived in a suite on the 18th floor.
