An airy European-style pied-à-terre on a tree-lined block of the Upper East Side
Trends come and go in New York City, but on the Upper East Side, it’s the timeless things that are always in fashion. The Lowell maintains the charm of the past while offering all the luxuries we demand in the present. The stately lobby sets the tone for European elegance, with marble floors, ornate wainscoting and heavily tassled drapes. Old New York sophistication is alive and well.
Bed and Bath
Upstairs the look is lighter and more modern, with serene earth tones and lush textures (mahogany, leather) in the 47 suites and 27 deluxe rooms. Colossal bathrooms with full-size DDC28 amenities feel especially indulgent, while kitchenettes provide the comforts of a hot cup of chamomile tea or a snack without the need to pick up the phone.
The Lowell recognizes the potential for luxury in even the smallest touch. Breakfast in the hotel’s gracious Pembroke Room is an elegant affair, with tables covered in white linen, polished silver and fresh flowers (they also offer afternoon tea and pre-theater dinner). But the real perk is the excellent staff and concierge (multilingual and on call 24 hours a day), one of the reasons that nearly 75 percent of guests return for another stay.
