New York City’s Hotel Pennsylvania Celebrates 100 Years With Announcement of Complete Modernization: “The Penn Plaza Collection”

Special 30% off promotion for guests to enjoy

There’s so much to do in mid-town New York City and now you have added incentive (for a limited time) to try out the modernized, yet century-old “Penn Hotel”. With bonus rates like these, I sense a visit to explore New York City may be on the plans this spring.

Hotel Pennsylvania NYCNew York, NY (April 3, 2019) — A New York City hotel classic since 1919, Hotel Pennsylvania, recently called “the most important hotel of the 20th Century,” is proud to announce it will be celebrating its 100-year mark with the introduction of “The Penn Plaza Collection” featuring hundreds of fully modernized rooms achieved after a multi-phase, multi-million dollar design project that will make guests fall in love with this historic hotel all over again.  

Renowned for having some of the largest accommodations in New York City, the revamped rooms in tones of whites, and pale beige and complemented by contemporary Hotel Pennsylvania's Penn Plaza Collectionwooden furnishings provide an uplifting experience with brand new fittings, carpeting, oversized state-of-the-art HD Televisions and rejuvenated bathrooms. Yet these rooms will maintain their authenticity with many of the original elements brought back to life.

Often chosen for its prime Midtown location, Hotel Penn, as the hotel is often known, is just across the street from the iconic Madison Square Garden venue and a block from shopping mecca Macy’s, the world’s largest store. Also directly across the street is the hotel’s original neighbor, Pennsylvania Station, the busiest railroad station in the Western Hemisphere. Lots to see in New York City (co NewYorkPass)The Empire State Building, Times Square and the new grand mall at Hudson Yards, are within close proximity. Known for offering one of the best values in Manhattan, based upon the average size of guest rooms and central location, Hotel Pennsylvania began its refurbishment project to ensure a modern, comfortable experience for guests for many more years to come.

“It's incredibly exciting to take such major steps to improve our overall guest experience as we enter into our 100 year anniversary” said Gene Nicotra, Vice President and General Manager of Hotel Pennsylvania. “This modernization is a firm commitment to our community and to our valued guests, addressing much of the feedback we have received from them through the years. This investment will return Hotel Penn to a hallmark and celebrated treasure of New York City’s rich history.”

It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "

  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
