According to this report in the New York Times at least some of the seven-story WestHouse's 172 guest rooms are cast offs from the neighboring Park Central, which has just undergone a top-to-bottom, multi-million dollar renovation, also guided by Jeffrey Beers International. When we visited the site the other day, we saw carts of linens labeled Park Central being wheeled in through the WestHouse's entrance, which made us wonder if the two hotels will be collaborating further.
Bedrooms and suites will feature leather-tufted headboards, custom carpeting, Art Deco-style eucalyptus wood dressers, beveled mirrors, and brown leather desks, while bathrooms will have black-and-white chevron-patterned marble floors. Rooms categories range from a Luxe Queen to a 1,500-square-foot Presidential Suite.
The website lists guest "privileges" such as breakfast and evening canapés, and "courtesies" including a WestHouse Attaché and butler service upon request.
The website also prompts you to sign up for a "personal email invitation." To what, we are not sure, but we signed up and await further news.
Rates for opening night (November 15th) start at $475 for a Luxe King.
