The Chatwal Transports You in Time
I had the good fortune to be invited to a breakfast business conference this past week at the Lambs Club at the Chatwal Hotel in midtown Manhattan. As soon as you enter the lobby, you are transported to another era. The spectacular look of the Art Deco movement is evident in every inch of the hotel, as well as the restaurant, bar and meeting rooms. Attention to detail is what makes the look and feel of the hotel so successful.
This property was designed by Stanford White and opened in 1905 with the purpose of providing a home for American theatre actors including luminaries like the Barrymores, Fred Astaire and Rodgers and Hammerstein. In 1974 the building was declared a landmark.
Today, the lush and elegant 1930’s deco look has been re-imagined by Thierry Despont, utilizing a palette of saffron, sepia and ruby tones.
The Chatwal has been named one of the ten best hotels in New York by Travel and Leisure Magazine this year.
Celebrated chef Geoffrey Zakarian has created an inventive American menu for the dining room.
What a treat it was for me to wander around the lobby and meeting rooms of The Chatwal.
Everything about this hotel is just exquisite. Even the scents are delightful.
