For a quintessentially New York Hotel experience, tourists and locals alike might indulge in a stay at the Loews Regency. Along with hot dogs from street venders, the yellow blur of taxicabs, retro and authentic art deco edifices and the bold rhythms of Gershwin, Loews Regency New York Hotel epitomizes that classic New York style.
With sister hotels in Boston and Philadelphia, the Loews Regency at 540 Park Avenue at 61st Street is within reach of some other historic locations. The hotel is two blocks away from Bloomingdale’s, a similar distance to Central Park, a healthy jaunt to Rockefeller Center and a stone’s throw away from Trump Tower.
In the world of big city hotels, Loews Regency is the over-achiever. In an attempt to create a unique and memorable experience, the Regency offers an iconic décor that blends classic elements with contemporary styles. Special creature comforts are also a signature of the hotel.
In December, guests were invited to enjoying complimentary cups of hot chocolate with marshmallows in the lobby every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 3:30-6:00 pm. During the holiday season, guests were also offered discounts at Wollman Rink, special menus and themed desserts at The Regency Bar and Grill, and a great deal on a collectible, first edition Loews Regency Hotel ornament ($50). In the spirit of giving, the hotel partners with Toys for Tots where guests are given the opportunity to donate unused toys.
The accommodations at the Loews Regency offer luxury at every price range. All rooms include an oversized workspace, high-speed wifi, smart TV, personalized temperature controls, electronic window shades and even flat screen TVs built into the bathroom mirror.
Despite the modern features, the room décor balances out the ages by transporting the guest back to previously decades with retro design elements and a Park Avenue view through the panoramic windows.
In addition to the standard rooms, Loews Regency’s 58 suites make luxury all the more obvious with expandable living space perfect for business meetings or families traveling with children. The rooms feature a terrace/atrium, bedroom with accordion doors and opaque panes of glass, built-in bookcase, deep soaking tub and spa-like shower. The signature residences add big city style to the already spacious suites: a bit more modern, a bit more chic.
Finally, the Regency Residence is for the itinerant elite with 5,520 square feet of living space, hardwood floors, arched ceiling, formal dining room, spacious kitchen, breakfast nook and butler’s pantry. The den is a restful retreat with wood paneling, tripod lamps and comfortable seating options. Each room has its own distinct style and color scheme, from the wood inset of the dining room to the marble paradise of the bathroom, which offers a deep tub and glass enclosed shower.
