FiDi Hampton Inn ready to open

A new Hampton Inn hotel, designed by Gene Kaufman Architect (GKA), is set to make its debut in the historic building at 32 Pearl Street in Manhattan’s Financial District. The hotel suffered damage during Hurricane Sandy, but following a restoration, it is ready to welcome guests. GKA converted the existing Art Deco-era structure into an 81-room hotel, with a new lobby designed by GKA’s Interiors Group, transforming the building into a state-of-the-art hospitality destination while retaining its old New York charm. 2014-04-16-RealEstateWeekly-Deals-DealMakers
