Upscale Beaux-Arts property in Midtown, with renovated interiors, comfortable rooms, and a cozy cocktail lounge

The Lowdown

Set in a handsome Beaux-Arts building from the early 1900s, this 148-room hotel offers a taste of old New York without skimping on modern comforts. In 2013, along with a complete restoration of its classic limestone facade, Hotel Chandler’s interiors got a major revamp. Designer Jane Capellini chose stone floors, chestnut wood paneling, textured neutral fabrics, and Art Deco light fittings to create a style that rests between traditional and contemporary. The guest rooms are clean-lined and comfortable, with full or queen-sized beds backed by oversized tufted-leather headboards and luxe perks like turndown service. For extra space, book one of the Chandler Suites, which have generous four-poster beds, separate living rooms, large wooden desks, and decorative fireplaces. While there’s plenty to explore just steps away from the hotel, spending some time in the Library Room by the lobby is not a bad idea; it’s a great spot to catch up on email while sipping a complimentary coffee or tea. And the adjacent bar has a robust selection of craft cocktails and wines, as well as light bites.

In the Area

Hotel Chandler sits on the southern edge of Midtown East, right next to the thriving NoMad area, which is home to top-notch restaurants like celebrity chef April Bloomfield’s fashionable gastropub, The Breslin, and Marta, a Roman pizzeria run by one of New York’s top restaurateurs, Danny Meyer. Madison Square Park, a lovely tree-shaded square that hosts public art exhibits, is just a short walk away. All around are heaps of attractions, including the original Shake Shack, the iconic Flatiron Building, Eataly, and coveted shops like ABC Home. Tourist landmarks like the Empire State Building and Times Square are also nearby.
