A chic, elegant Boutique Hotel is planned for 80-100 rooms and suites including a ground floor Duke Ellington jazz-themed restaurant/club-lounge. Edward Kennedy “Duke” Ellington (April 29, 1899 – May 24, 1974) was an American composer, pianist, and bandleader of a jazz orchestra, which he led from 1923 until his death in a career spanning over fifty years.
The hotel will bring back the sounds, the glamour and the swagger of jazz. Hotel Ellington will reclaim the legendary history and the magical spirit of Duke Ellington just as he performed in Harlem at the Cotton Club, Apollo Theatre, Roseland Ballroom & many others. In a city were luxuries are the norm, Hotel Ellington will be a cut above the rest. Stunning guest rooms and suites will be outfitted with luxurious bathrooms offering the latest amenities. All accommodations will feature the latest modern conveniences and technology support furnishings.
