The New Yorker Hotel has seen some ups and downs in its 84 year history: from fashionable hotspot that drew the likes of Joan Crawford and Muhammad Ali; to scene of Nikola Tesla's death and, in recent years, status as a lowly Ramada.

But the iconic Art Deco-style hotel entered a new era last week when it joined the Wyndham Hotel brand, which, with a 1,083 room count, makes it the biggest hotel in the Wyndham portfolio.

The hotel is also embarking on a fresh look with the rollout of a five-year, multi-million dollar renovation that will modernize exteriors, 114 guestrooms (additional rooms slated for 2015 and 2016), ballroom facilities and meeting space, as well as upgrading their food and beverage outlets. We are rooting for this one; let's see the New Yorker recapture its former glory.

Rates currently start at $229, which is slightly less than the $299 starting rate at nearby Wyndham Midtown 45.
