Crowne Plaza Suffern, New York Receives IHG’S 2011 Renovation Award

The Crowne Plaza Suffern, New York has been recognized by the InterContinental Hotels Group for its extensive renovation and modernization of the hotel. The award was presented to Hotel Ownership and Management Company at the 2011 InterContinental Hotels Group Americas Investors & Leadership Conference in Las Vegas.

Lined with sleek, modern elegance, the spectacular atrium displays a 15-foot tall waterfall surrounded by a koi pond. The renovations also yielded 230 exquisite guest rooms, including 6 luxurious 2-room suites and 15 executive King rooms. Each hotel room features an oversized 42” flat-screen television, a personal Keurig coffeemaker and a high-security safe, among other signature Crowne Plaza amenities.

Particular attention was given to the hotel’s ability to host conferences and events. Crowne Plaza Suffern boasts one of the region’s largest conference centers, with 11 meeting rooms offering up to 25,000 square feet of space. A 24-hour business center, well-equipped fitness room and complimentary wired and wireless internet throughout the hotel are also available.

The Holiday Inn opened in 1978 and served the Lower Hudson Valley for 32 years before closing its doors in October 2010. The transformation into Crowne Plaza Suffern, led by the Goldstein Family along with Glenn Squires, also the CEO of the hotel management firm Pacrim Hospitality, this transition took less than six months.

“The Holiday Inn played a vital role in the Lower Hudson Valley for more than three decades”, said Squires. “Times have changed and so has the demand for a hotel with the prestige that the Crowne Plaza brand carries. I look forward to working with the Goldstein family to ensure that the Crowne Plaza Suffern meets and exceeds all expectations.

“The all-new Crowne Plaza Suffern is designed to perfectly meet the needs of families and businesses hosting events from weddings and bar/bat mitzvahs, to corporate retreats and business conferences,” said Joshua Goldstein of Empire Executive Inn, LLC. “New York residents will no longer have to hold special events at hotels in New Jersey or Westchester Country to be dazzled with class and sophistication.”
