Since early 2019, Disney's Hotel New York has closed to be renovated and redesigned. It was scheduled to reopen on June 15th but the date has been postponed to 2021 due to the corona crisis. It will then be named Disney's Hotel New York - The Art of Marvel.
It is therefore clear that the hotel will not only be given a new coat of paint and new furniture, but will also shine in a whole new light. It will transform into a modern New York art gallery where everything revolves around the Marvel superheroes. More than 300 Marvel artworks will be on display, making the hotel truly a Marvel art gallery. Each floor of the hotel will be dedicated to one of the superheroes from the Marvel universe, which should be reflected in the design.
But even if you have not booked a room at Disney's Hotel New York - The Art of Marvel, you can look at some of the art objects. For example, many paintings are to be exhibited at one of the restaurants. There also will be plenty to see in the lobby and other public areas of the Disney hotel. The rooms are of course also designed to match the superhero of the floor and will contain paintings, drawings or sculptures. Basically, the design should be elegant and not striking or too colorful, after all, the character of a luxury hotel with at least 4-star level should be preserved.
Disney's Hotel New York - The Art of Marvel is a true art gallery with more than 300 Marvel artworks by over 50 artists from around the world. Both, the rooms and suites, as well as the public areas are decorated with these art works. In addition, hotel guests have the opportunity to meet the Marvel superheroes and children can learn how to become a Marvel comic artist themselves.
