Located between Bryant Park and Grand Central Terminal, in the shadow of the Empire State Building, the William Hotel enjoys a spectacular location in the centre of Midtown New York. Of exceptional beauty are also the two brownstone buildings that house it, converted to new use through a radical exterior and interior renovation through the work of many hands from the studio In Situ Design, Lillian B Interiors and the artist William Engel. The six floors of the William Hotel are all characterized by different shades which clothe the surroundings, transforming them into works of total art. The corridors leading to the rooms are “buffer zones”, where large abstract paintings created on commission by Engel announce what will be the dominant colour of that floor: blue, pink, yellow, orange, green or teal. The rooms – 33 in all – are the “boxes” with pure white floors, walls and ceilings, decorated with designer pieces chosen with great care such that the dominant nuance remains always clearly distinguishable. This is a new frontier of hospitality, since at The William the customer is free to choose the type of accommodation (deluxe studio, premium, penthouse) but also the colour of the furniture closest to his or her tastes. Or why not, to your mood!
