The Lowell Hotel – New York City

Posted on 25 August 2010

Tucked away on a quiet street in the Upper East Side of Manhattan you will find the charming boutique hotel, The Lowell. You know exactly what to expect from the outside with the friendly doormen and classic Art Deco designed exterior but then when you enter the lobby you instantly know you’ve stumbled upon a classic hideaway. The Lowell has a very intimate yet warm feeling upon entry. Marble floors greet you along with English style interior decor and dim tasteful lighting. It feels elegant and lived in at the same time, which is comforting when far from home. The room was beautiful, well designed and thought out. That touch of old world design prevails in the guest room but with modern amenities including a large flat screen, IPod doc, WIFI and more. A large panel flat screen hangs over the bathtub and the walk in shower is spacious and sparkling clean.

After settling into the room I decided to venture out to see what the Upper East Side had to offer. The hotel is in the perfect location- close to bars, restaurants shopping and nightlife. Barney’s, Bergdorf’s, Saks and all the shopping you could ever want are a short stroll away and Central Park is a stone’s throw. The concierge was very helpful and recommended a lot of great places to go. Walking around Central Park all afternoon was great and tiring, I wanted to go back to the plushness of the hotel. When I arrived at the entrance the doorman quickly handed me a bottle of water and opened the door for me. Nice.

The hotel has a total 23 bedrooms and 49 suites. The country-house style suites feature wood-burning fireplaces, and 14 feature sunny terraces overlooking the cityscape. There are also six specialty suites, including two Lowell Suites, The Garden Suite with two terraces, The Hollywood Suite with state-of-the-art conference room for 12 people; The Manhattan Suite with its spacious marble bath complete with steam-shower, Jacuzzi bath and two terraces and The Penthouse Suite with three bedrooms, a large terrace and a private conservatory.

A stay at the Lowell is incredibly relaxing yet convenient, this boutique hotel is definitely the place to be for business or pleasure.
