Blaze at the Statler Hotel Called 'Definitely Arson'

FULL ARTICLE:

Fire marshals have determined that the blaze Friday that virtually closed the New York Statler Hotel was ''definitely arson,'' according to a spokesman for the Fire Department.

The spokesman, John Mulligan, said the marshals had found a gallon can containing a flammable liquid in the vicinity of the third-floor ballroom, where the fire broke out.

The blaze sent smoke billowing up the sides of the 21-story hotel at Seventh Avenue and 33d Street.

The marshals are attempting to determine where the can came from and what type fluid was in it, Mr. Mulligan said. About three hours after the fire was reported at 2:44 A.M., the 1,500 guests were permitted to return to their rooms. But late Friday afternoon, hotel managers said guests were being sent to other hotels in the area because of electrical problems caused by water damage.

William Senkbeil, an assistant manager, said yesterday afternoon that only ''a handful of permanent residents'' remained in the hotel and that he could not estimate when it might begin accepting guests again.

Real Estate; New Phase Beginning For Statler

By SHAWN G. KENNEDY

FULL ARTICLE:

WHEN Ellsworth Statler and the Pennsylvania Railroad built the Hotel Pennsylvania in 1919, on Seventh Avenue between 32d and 33d Streets, their aim was to serve travelers arriving at the recently opened Pennsylvania Station across the street.

Since then, air travel has replaced rail travel as the dominant mode of transportation. And the New York Statler Hotel, which was designed by Stanford White and until 1927 was the world's largest, has operated under several owners and several names.

The hotel recently changed hands again, and the new owners are looking for patronage from visitors drawn to Manhattan's West Side for another reason: The city's 1.8-million-square- foot convention center is going up five blocks from the hotel.

''We will have a distinct advantage in being the closest major hotel in the new convention center's vicinity,'' said Elie Hirschfeld. He and his father, Abraham Hirschfeld, and Arthur G. Cohen have joined with Penta Hotels, which owns and operates dozens of medium-priced hotels in Europe and the Middle East, to purchase the 1,700-room landmark from an investment group headed by Willim Zeckendorf Jr. for an estimated $46 million.

With 58,000 square feet of ballroom space and 24,000 square feet of exhibition room, the hotel, at the edge of the garment district, has long drawn its share of convention delegates and business travelers. The hotel was the headquarters for the Democratic National Convention in 1976 and 1980.

An underground passageway at 33d Street links the hotel with Pennsylvania Station, Madison Square Garden and other buildings, providing easy access for hotel guests.

Abelco, the name of the Hirschfeld- Cohen partnership, and the Penta organization each have a 50 percent interest in the venture. Penta will manage the hotel, which will be renamed the New York Penta.

The Penta Hotels chain is owned by British Airways, Lufthansa, Swissair and three major European banks. According to Pier Weidt, director for marketing for Penta, the consortium was formed in 1970 to secure hotel accomodations for the airlines' travelers in major gateway cities where the airlines flew.

''The acquisition of the Statler is the first that Penta has purchased in the United States, but there are plans for future development here,'' he said.

Although the hotel was upgraded just four years ago after Mr. Zeckendorf's group bought it, the new owners have announced a multimillion- dollar modernization program, to be completed in several stages during the next 18 months. All of the hotel's public spaces, including the lobbies and restaurants, and about 1,200 of the rooms and suites will be redesigned. The facelift will include the hotel's exterior.

Despite the money the new owners plan to put into the hotel, which is now the city's fourth largest, Elie Hirschfeld said the group was committed to maintaining its current room prices.

''We want to fit into a particular niche, to reach a market of business travelers and tourists who are not looking for a super-luxurious hotel,'' said Elie Hirschfeld. ''The current average price of a double room at the hotel is less than $100 per day, and we will maintain that price structure.''

The Penta-Abelco partners are not the only investors outside the city who are investing in Manhattan's West Side. In May V.M.S. Realty, a Chicago-based national real estate investment firm, acquired the New York Sheraton Hotel, on Seventh Avenue between 55th and 56th Streets, from the Sheraton Corporation. V.M.S. paid $60 million for the 1,450- room hotel, the city's fifth largest.

At the time of the purchase, Peter R. Morris, the 34-year-old chairman of V.M.S., called the acquisition a ''once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.'' He added that the company's decision to take over the Sheraton reflected its strong belief in the further economic growth of New York City in general and in what Mr. Morris called the renaissance taking place on the West Side between Times Square and Lincoln Center.

V.M.S. Realty, founded by Mr. Morris six years ago, is jointly owned by him and the Van Kamp Group, an investment banking firm. Since its beginning in 1977, V.M.S. has acquired 3,500 hotel and motel units. The company also owns 3.5 million square feet of commercial property in office buildings, shopping centers and hotels and owns or manages more than 12,000 residential units throughout the country.

V.M.S. selected the Dunfey Hotels Corporation, a hotel and restaurant chain owned by Aer Lingus, as its manager.

PERSPECTIVES;Its Name Restored, a Hotel Rides the Tourism Wave

By ALAN S. OSER

TIME seems to bring change to hotels more regularly than to most forms of commercial property. To maintain quality, renovation work has to be undertaken constantly. But the ownership of the property, and the character of its use, often changes as well.

In the case of what is now formally known as the Hotel Pennsylvania, in Manhattan, the changes extend also to the name. It was built in 1919 as the Hotel Pennsylvania by the Pennsylvania Railroad, whose late-lamented station faced it across Seventh Avenue between 32d and 33d Streets. It became the Statler in 1949 when the Statler Company bought it. Five years later, Conrad Hilton bought all 17 Statler hotels, and renamed it the Statler Hilton.

Metro Business; Vornado Buys Hotel Stake

FULL ARTICLE:

Vornado Realty Trust of Saddle Brook, N.J., says it has doubled its stake in the Hotel Pennsylvania in Manhattan to 80 percent by buying one of its partner's interests for $70 million in cash and assumed debt.

The move leaves Vornado, a real estate investment trust, and Planet Hollywood International as partners in the hotel, which they plan to turn into a sports-theme hotel and entertainment complex called the Official All-Star Hotel.

The hotel is on Seventh Avenue across the street from Madison Square Garden.

Vornado said last week that it had bought the 40 percent stake in the hotel from Ong Beng Seng, a Singapore businessman, for $22 million in cash and the assumption of $48 million of debt.

The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter.

In September, Vornado, Planet Hollywood and Ong Ben Seng acquired the 20-story hotel for $159 million.

The Hotel Pennsylvania has more than 1,700 guest rooms and 400,000 square feet of retail and office space. It was previously run under the names Penta, the Statler-Hilton and the Statler.

William B. Tabler Sr., Architect of Hilton Hotels, Dies at 89

By DAVID W. DUNLAP

FULL ARTICLE:

William B. Tabler Sr., an architect who gave Hilton hotels the crisp and clean but sometimes stark face of corporate America, most notably in the 46-story slablike New York Hilton near Rockefeller Center, died on Feb. 3. He was 89.

He died at his home in Upper Brookville, N.Y., said his son, William B. Tabler Jr., who continues the architectural practice in Manhattan.

Though he was not well known outside the profession, Mr. Tabler's designs affected generations of travelers after World War II when downtown hotels began to trade charm for efficiency, looking more and more like the office buildings around them. Nonetheless, Mr. Tabler could be counted on for architectural gestures that would make Hilton hotels stand apart.

Broad boomerang swoops in a figure 3 distinguish the 12-story Washington Hilton of 1965, as does its location on a bluff overlooking Connecticut Avenue. Mr. Tabler's design permitted all of the 1,250 guest rooms to face outside, rather than having some overlook courtyards. More than half of the hotel's floor area, including the ballroom, was built below ground so that it would conform to Washington's strict height limit.

The 1,200-room Hilton in San Francisco, built near Union Square in 1964, was called a motel within a hotel because Mr. Tabler's design allowed guests to drive their cars up ramps through the core of the building to park on the same floor as their rooms. On the exterior, windows alternated with structural panels, creating a kind of checkerboard facade that masked the X-shaped braces providing earthquake resistance.

And in New York, Mr. Tabler created angled window bays that allowed ductwork to run outside the main structure. Aesthetically, that imparted texture and dimension to an otherwise monolithic facade and gave a sense of extra space to the rooms. The glass was tinted blue, which also helped the tower, between 53rd and 54th Streets, distinguish itself from nearby corporate headquarters along the Avenue of the Americas.

Mr. Tabler designed the 2,153-room New York Hilton at Rockefeller Center with David P. Dann for a partnership called Rock-Hil-Uris for its principals: Laurance S. Rockefeller, Conrad N. Hilton and Percy and Harold Uris. It opened in 1963 and is now called the Hilton New York.

''The directness of the concept, the expertness of the plan and the quality of execution are commendable,'' Ada Louise Huxtable, then the architecture critic of The New York Times, wrote in 1963. ''If the building has a look that suggests that one might put change in at the top and get something out of the bottom, this is only because today's slickly designed commercial structures more and more frequently resemble a product, a machine or a package.''

Mr. Tabler was born in Momence, Ill., and received his bachelor's and master's degrees from Harvard. In 1939 he joined the Chicago firm Holabird & Root, where he worked on his first big hotel project, the 1,000-room Statler Hotel in Washington.

After serving in the Navy during the Second World War, he was asked to head Statler's in-house architecture department in 1946. He formed his own practice in 1955.

He designed more than 400 hotels. Among his recent projects were the 376-room New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge, 333 Adams Street in Brooklyn, which opened in 1998, and the 714-room Grand Hyatt Cairo, which opened in 2000. Mr. Tabler designed Hilton hotels in Baltimore, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh and St. Paul; Statler hotels in Dallas and Hartford; and InterContinental hotels worldwide.

Besides his son, of Locust Valley, N.Y., Mr. Tabler is survived by his wife, Phyllis Baker Tabler; a daughter, Judith Tabler Cook, of McLean, Va.; and three grandchildren.
