Lemay + Escobar developed the concept for this 166-room hotel as a metaphor for the crossing of the George Washington Bridge over the Hudson River from Manhattan. Warm, natural tones, flowing liquid lines and river stone motifs translate into a polished, inviting ambiance.
An ingenious use of porcelain panels gives a huge reception wall the look of solid stone without the impractical weight. Stylized images of the bridge reinforce the sense of place, while acoustic material in the high-ceilinged lobby creates an organic effect.
The hotel is conveniently located near Yankee Stadium, Meadowlands Sports Complex, Columbia University and other New York City attractions. The Lemay + Escobar interiors heighten the sense of quality and well-being associated with top hotels while preserving the affordable functionality of the Hyatt Place brand.
