Last week, the 1,311-room Grand Hyatt New York, near Manhattan's Grand Central Station, premiered the $12 million renovation of its Empire Ballroom. Built in 1917, the 18,000-square-foot space can accommodate up to 1,500 guests and can be divided into five meeting rooms. All audiovisual equipment has been upgraded and advanced LED lighting added.
