Swellegant Stay – The Chatwal


Rich hues of saffron, ruby and sepia lure you into the Chatwal.

The 1930’s Art Deco building has been reimagined to suit today’s expectations.  While owning its position, steps away from Broadway, the hotel stands on its own merits.  Each of the 76 guest rooms and suites are outfitted with luxe amenities like handmade mattresses.  Yes, handmade. This is how you set yourself apart in the city that never sleeps.  Throw in custom closet space to rival any you have at home, and complimentary butler service, well…you start to get the drift.Guests who discover this Manhattan hotel are a collection of international and domestic travelers looking for a different experience in the heart of the city.

Although the hotel maintains its Art Deco feel, rebranding has taken place over the past two years, so even those who have stayed here before will be impressed with the overall refresh and improved suites. Although it is perfectly suited for the business traveler, being located between 6th and 7th, there are bikes available to wander the city and discover all the spunk that New York has to offer. Cycling in the city may require a bit more dexterity than most of us are willing to muster up, so a stroll to a show or downstairs for a meal, is always a simple decision.

The hotel’s restaurant, The Lambs Club, predates the 1930’s hotel by about 25 years, and was home to America’s first professional theater club. The original honor roll is located just off the elevator. If only these walls could talk, we think they’d babble on and on. It’s very swanky to have one of the country’s most historic restaurants in the lobby of your hotel. Sit close to the 18th century fireplace in the center of the dining room and give your friends an eye-full on social media.
