Corinthia Group takes New York

New York, you say? Yes! The Corinthia Group has expanded its operations to New York after securing a deal to operate The Surrey hotel, once it re-opens following refurbishments. The hotel is located in the upper east side and is set to be re-opened in early 2023.

The building was acquired by private investment firm Reuben Brothers in 2020 and will be the first Corinthia-run property in the United States. The group also has a similar deal with the Reuben Brothers, with a luxury hotel in Rome, in Italy.

The Surrey hotel was first build back in 1926, and can be found on East 76th Street and Madison Avenue, a stone’s throw away from Central Park. It will have 97 guest rooms, including 33 suites, five signature suites and 12 luxury residences.

Casa Tua, which is famous for its restaurant, hotel and private club on Miami Beach and also has locations in Paris and Aspen, will be handling the hotel’s food and beverage offering.

“We trust the Corinthia brand, with whom we have also partnered with on another notable project in Rome, to deliver a current and innovative hotel proposition with an uplifting guest experience while rejuvenating the properties to their former, historic grandeur,” said Jamie Reuben.

Simon Naudi, Corinthia Group’s CEO, said that a presence in the United States, especially New York, has always been a goal for the group. “We look forward to working closely with the Reuben Brothers to restore The Surrey to its former glory in time for its 100th anniversary,” he said.
