New York City, the place where its always HAPPENING! No other place knows glitz and glamour like NYC. On any given any weekend, or quite frankly, on any given day, NYC could be and IS home to more than a hundred stars. Each of the stars have their own reasons to be there, some for premieres, some for shootings, some for parties, some for vacations, some for privacy and some just because they simply live there. New York has long been witness to the pitter-patter of movie premieres, GQ parties, Vogue photoshoots, movie sets, etc and the city has almost grown to accommodate every need of the entertainment industry. And some hotels more than others are more attuned to the needs of this industry that aims to entertain.

The Triumph Hotel Group of New York are one such group, a collection of small boutique hotels, that prioritize on comfort and luxury while also providing privacy.

Pritan Ambroase, Emporio Vogue Ambassador and CDCLifestyle Global Brand Ambassador had been invited by the Triumph Hotel Group to stay in their luxury establishments while in NYC attending events and movie premieres. He remarked,

An amazing weekend. My NY weekends are normally filled with excitement, rushing from one party or event to another, and this makes the establishment I stay at, very important as comfort is mandatory to relax and recuperate for the next day. The Triumph Hotel Group is the perfect getaway for anyone looking for an intimate setting that values first class customer service along with privacy.

I am very impressed with both Hotel Belleclaire and Hotel Chandler. I especially enjoyed the Babe Ruth Suite at Hotel Belleclaire as it was the most ideal man cave. Remarkably comfortable at both the hotels where service from the hosts, managers and every attendant was up to the highest standards as each of our needs were well taken care of. In regards to Triomphe Restaurant, SPECTACULAR is the key word, everything from the ambiance, to the setting, service and especially the food was first class. I can honestly say I am not a fan of salad, Triomphe made salad taste good and coming from me, that is a superb compliment. Each of the dishes tasted were delicious, unique and simply amazing. Furthermore, my mum and some of my close friends accompanied me to the venues and since my mum has great taste and eye for style, she was thoroughly impressed.  Anyone looking for a getaway or an escape and value first class customer service, luxury settings and privacy, should head to the members of the Triumph Hotel Group in New York, namely Hotels Belleclaire and Chandler and experience an exquisite dining experience at Triomphe, this will only compliment your complete NYC experience. Triump Hotel Group = Total NYC Experience. This group and its luxury establishments are definitely up to par with the standards of both Emporio Vogue and CDCLifestyle.”

In the final stages of a multi-million dollar, multi-phase restorative renovation, Hotel Belleclaire is situated in the heart of the Upper West Side, steps away from some of the city’s most cultural attractions. A member of Triumph Hotel Group, a collection of sophisticated New York City boutique hotels, Hotel Belleclaire provides guests the rare opportunity to experience the charm of a turn-of-the-century American landmark hotel combined with all of the comforts and conveniences that modern day travelers expect and enjoy. The Belleclaire offers 230 freshly revamped guest rooms, a modern fitness center, energetic lobby scene with Coffee Bean coffee bar, panoramic city and Hudson River views, and a state-of-the-art media lounge, with a chic full-service cocktail lounge and rooftop garden and restaurant to come in late 2014. Originally built in 1903 by famed architect Emery Roth, the building’s brick, terracotta and limestone façade reflect Beaux Arts and Art Nouveau styles. Unique design elements such as a 40-foot skylight, 18-foot high ceilings, hand- laid mosaic tile and intricate wood doors dating back over 110 years were discovered throughout the renovation process and became a significant part of interior designer Silvia Zofio’s inspiration for the property. The ornately carved wooden doors inside the lobby are in the same original location and help recreate the historic ambiance of Hotel Belleclaire. Hotel Belleclaire continues to tie into it’s unique history with specialty suites such as the Babe Ruth Suite. The famed baseball player frequented Hotel Belleclaire and the suite is filled with Yankee memorabilia making it the perfect man cave.

All 148 guestrooms are now appointed with a stately style and color scheme to create a sophisticated feeling throughout the property. The guestroom refresh was inspired by residential design, turning Hotel Chandler into a cozy reprieve with a calming neutral palette with pops of blue color in a variety of textures and materials.
