‘Lullabuy of Broadway’ hotel gets renovation

NEW YORK – In the heart of New York’s Theater District, I recently enjoyed a front-row seat to one of the largest hotel renovations going on right now in the Big Apple.

The historic, 1,300-room Milford Plaza Hotel is receiving a top-to-bottom upgrade that last month you couldn’t miss – especially, if you were in the right spot.

I watched (and cringed a little) as workers dangled high above Eighth Avenue and 44 Street on a windy day from my 28th-floor room at the InterContinental Times Square hotel.

The Milford Plaza, nicknamed “The Lullabuy of Broadway,” first opened in the 1920s as the Lincoln Hotel.

It was repositioned as the Milford Plaza in 1978, according to a press release issued one year ago by owners Highgate Holdings and private equity firm Rockpoint Group.

The ongoing renovation will improve the hotel’s aging infrastructure, public spaces and guest rooms.

The hotel is also getting restaurant and retail components on the ground floor, the release said.

The Milford’s large-scale upgrade means the end to what has been one of the cheaper hotels in the Broadway area.

The owners weren’t quite ready to reveal further details about the renovation, but I thought you might like these photos.
