On April 29, Lotte New York Palace welcomed its newest event space in the historic Villard Mansion. The Gold Room boasts 1,020 square feet of meeting and event space ideal for anything from large scale corporate meetings and bridal affairs to smaller, intimate gatherings. With a capacity of 150 people, The Gold Room has already become a staple meeting location for business people in the Midtown area.

The Gold Room features a revolutionary design concept by French interior designer Patrick Jouin. With opulent walls and barrel-vaulted ceilings, the venue is meant to exude a sense of intimacy and warmth while also presenting itself as a sleek, ultramodern structure. Located in the most famous Renaissance-style room in the Villard Mansion, The Gold Room offers menu items from VILLARD Restaurant as well as The Gold Room Bar.

The room is almost entirely gold with gilt ceilings, walls and wainscoting. Wall panels are adorned with images of musical instruments and garlands of foliage to reflect the space's original plan to be a music room.

“The Gold Room is undoubtedly the most iconic architectural dining setting in New York City,” says Rebecca Hubbard, general manager of Lotte New York Palace. “We are thrilled to invite our hotel guests, local residents and business executives to experience the new innovative cocktail and dining concept of this Renaissance-style bar against the striking backdrop of the historic Villard Mansion.” 

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.
