New York City’s The Muse, a Kimpton Hotel, has completed an extensive renovation encompassing the entire property. Upgrades include new décor for the 200 guest rooms, including the addition of Carrera marble-and-glass-enclosed walk-in showers with large overhead rainwater and handheld shower heads. The lobby now sports new chaise-style seating for relaxing and mingling, and the NIOS Restaurant, under the direction of executive chef Jarett Brodie, now features "live edge" communal dining tables. Corridors from the lobby and guest floors to the meeting rooms have new carpeting, and the hotel’s three meeting rooms have new furnishings, including waterfall chandeliers and black-and-white photographs depicting surreal mirror images of iconic New York City architecture and skyline views. The meeting rooms have been outfitted with 65-inch flat-screen TVs enhanced with Apple TV and Google Chromecast streaming devices.
