The Triumph Hotels, which include the Iroquois Hotel, the Chandler Hotel, the Belleclaire Hotel and the Washington Jefferson Hotel, are all owned by Shimmie Horn, a graduate of the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.
The hotels, as well as numerous other properties throughout New York City, are part of a unique collection originally established by Shimmie Horn’s grandfather in the early 1950s. Focusing on emerging hotels and real estate in the area, Horn’s father continued to strengthen the business through the early 90s.
Immediately after his father’s unexpected death, Shimmie Horn was given the responsibility of the four Manhattan hotels. Seeing opportunity amidst the throes of the recession, Shimmie decided to enhance the business by refurbishing the venues.
First was the Iroquois Hotel on West 44th St. in 1996. Shimmie’s efforts paid off almost immediately when the hotel was invited to become the Manhattan flagship of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. The Iroquois’s Triomphe Restaurant’s award also proved a beneficial stepping stone for the hotels of Triumph Hospitality. Now, Triumph Hospitality includes four luxury hotels in Manhattan, with more than 200 in staff.
Newcomers to New York may feel lost and overwhelmed, especially in Manhattan- and rightfully so! The city is filled with hundreds of different attractions, busy streets and endless avenues.
A popular scene is the Theatre District, which is where the majority of Broadway theatres, cinemas, restaurants and hotels are located. Current popular Broadway shows include the timeless The Lion King, the spectacular Wicked, the notorious Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark, Rock of Ages and many more!
Restaurants and hotels abound in the area, so tourists and Broadway lovers have endless dining options as well. Re Sette is one of the more popular eateries, serving Barese regional dishes and offering a relaxed atmosphere in the center of one of the liveliest neighborhoods in the city.
Triomphe, at the Iroquois Hotel owned by Shimmie Horn, is another popular restaurant, with a seasonal menu and sophisticated atmosphere. The Triumph Hotel restaurants are a favorite of Zagat reviewers, and have been called “tasteful Midtown gems”.
For an authentic Roman feel, many enjoy the Trattoria Dopo Teatro on 44th Street. The new chef, Giuseppe Guglielmo Amoroso, studied the culinary arts in Rome and Geneva, and his dishes add to the unique interior of the restaurant.
