One of the city’s Grand Dame hotels will be debuting her significant facelift in this month — one that puts her in position to woo the president of the United States.
The InterContinental New York Barclay has been shuttered for the past 20 months for a massive $180 million renovation, including a new 3,000-square-foot presidential suite — twice the size of the of the previous penthouse suite.
The two-bedroom presidential suite — costing between $15,000 and $25,000 a night, depending on the season — will be completed by the summer and will have a steam room, fitness equipment, a living and dining room, among other amenities that will put the property in the running for the White House’s business.
