Lotte New York Palace, New York City, New York
A Fairytale Wedding
Welcome to the Palace
The Lotte New York Palace, a fairytale backdrop fit for a bride and groom’s magical happily ever after, resides on prominent Madison Avenue in the heart of New York City. The stunning property is beloved by New Yorkers and visitors alike. Famous financier, Henry Villard, founded the historic property in 1882 when he commissioned an illustrious architectural firm to design a collection of neo-Italian renaissance townhouses bordering the Madison Avenue courtyard. Fast forward to 2015, after a multi-million dollar restoration and refurbishment, the Lotte New York Palace is once again a reigning jewel of old world elegance, luxurious accommodations, fine dining, and provides a one-of-a-kind event space for grand celebrations.
