by Francis McGovern

In our series on literary and historic hotels, we take a look at some hotels that can inspire your literary travels.

On a recent visit to New York City, we spent some time at the Renwick Hotel (118 E 40th St). The hotel is named after James Renwick Jr., one of the most successful American architects of the early nineteenth century. The hotel is known for the great artists, writers and intellectuals of the 1920’s who frequented the property, and includes remnants of the past with artwork from local artists in the guestrooms.
