Restoration

The former Gotham Hotel underwent a major restoration and reemerged as the opulent 300-suite flagship Peninsula Hotel, for which Gotham served as construction manager. The primary goal during construction was to maintain the majestic Beaux-Arts grandeur of the original 1905 landmark structure, but to reconfigure rooms and common areas to be operationally efficient in providing hospitality services by today’s standards. Renovation of the historic lobby included preserving the marble walls and floors, and the original ceiling details. All were executed to compliment the original neo-Italian Renaissance exterior façade.
