Pestana Hotel Group has announced that it will be opening its first property in New York. The new hotel, Pestana Park Avenue, is located at 23 E. 39th St. between Park and Madison avenues and within walking distance from Grand Central Terminal, the United Nations Headquarters, Bryant Park, Fifth Avenue and many more attractions.
Along with Pestana Park Avenue being the first Pestana Hotel Group property to open in New York, it will be the group’s 100th property to open worldwide.
“It is an incredible accomplishment for our family-owned business to be opening our group’s 100th property. It is particularly thrilling to being doing so in New York City, in one of the world’s top destinations. We are dedicated to building on the strategy of increasing our footprint worldwide in key global locations with great hotels that meet the needs of our guests,” says Sofia Fernandes, North and South America board member, Pestana Hotel Group.
The multinational Pestana Hotel Group is of Portuguese origin, so it often incorporates Portuguese details into the design of each hotel.
“Elements of Portugal including traditional tiles inspired by local designs and our staff’s uniforms that are also Portuguese-inspired. On a daily basis, our Grab and Go market will offer Pastel de Nata, a typical Portuguese custard tart. The outdoor patio will feature decorated tiles brought over from Portugal. Our guestrooms will highlight several elements including photography by Portuguese artist Catia Castel Branco, throw blankets designed by Bainha de Copas that replicate Portuguese tile designs that incorporate a New York twist as well as in-room amenities by Castebel, from Porto, Portugal,” says Fernandes.
The one-of-a-kind hotel is a luxurious getaway for any traveler, including business travelers. With its central location being minutes away from corporate offices, restaurants and the like, Pestana Park Avenue has partnered with Convene to offer various full-service meeting venues situated just around the block from the hotel.
“As our space is more intimate, we believe partnering with Convene makes strategic sense. Convene offers abundant spaces for meetings and events at a competitive price as well as offer onsite AV, daily refreshments and F&B options. After a busy day of conferences and events, Pestana Park Avenue is the prime accommodation option for guests to step away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy a comfortable retreat,” explains Fernandes.
The hotel also has an outdoor space available for rent and can collaborate with New York City’s best caterers to make any event special. Moreover, the on-site Grab and Go Market offers a daily variety of snacks and beverages. Additionally, Pestana Park Avenue is surrounded with an array of wonderful restaurants.
“As a brand, we want guests to know that we will always put their needs first. The hotel offers multifunctional elements in the guestrooms including full-length rotating mirrors as well as digital television with frames that also function as custom artwork displays. Pestana Park Avenue embraces everything our brand has to offer with its modern design and outstanding Portuguese hospitality, and we hope guests will cherish each moment of their stay,” says Fernandes.
