The United Nations Plaza complex was constructed by the City of New York[2] and the hotel opened on June 8, 1976[3] as the United Nations Plaza Hotel, operated by Hyatt International, originally containing 288 rooms atop One United Nations Plaza. Two United Nations Plaza was constructed in 1984 and the hotel was expanded with guest rooms atop that tower as well.[4] Hong Kong-based Regal Hotels bought the property from the City of New York in 1997 for $102 million, and it was renamed the Regal UN Plaza.[5] Millennium & Copthorne Hotels bought the hotel in 2000, and it became the Millennium UN Plaza.[6] The owners renovated the hotel in 2013 and renamed it ONE UN New York Hotel.[7] Hilton was contracted to manage the hotel in August 2017 and it was renamed Millennium Hilton New York One UN Plaza.[8]

Its Ambassador Grill, designed by Kevin Roche and John Dinkeloo, was assigned New York City Landmark status in January 2017.[9]
