In January 2014, the 379-room Loews Regency Hotel in Manhattan will reopen following a $100 million renovation. The flagship hotel is located just steps from Central Park, Madison Avenue and Museum Mile. The renovation included a redesign of the guest rooms, a new restaurant, addition meeting space and a 10,000-sf spa. The redesign is the work of Jonathan Tisch, chairman of Loews Hotel & Resorts.
The new look features modern designs with classic style beneath the 24-foot ceilings within the expansive lobby. The hotel opened in 1963, providing groups with a quintessential New York meetings hotel. Guestrooms include new moldings with chrome furnishings against the marble and wood furniture with plush bedding and green accents.
“We are thrilled to reopen this New York institution and greatly look forward to welcoming our guests back to the Loews Regency in January,” says Him McPartlin, managing director. “Visitors in town for both business and leisure want to stay in Midtown Manhattan and the hotel’s comprehensive re-imagination puts everything at our guests’ fingertips. Every detail of Loews Regency is focused on enticing today’s sophisticated, urban traveler by offering them warm, personalized service and the benefit of the perfect Park Avenue location for a true New York experience.”
Plans for a new restaurant are already in the works. The eatery will be managed by famed New York culinary experts, Gherardo Guarducuci and Dimitri Pauli of the San Ambroeus hospitality group. The menu will feature fresh, innovative cuisine by Executive chef Dan Silverman, with modern interpretations of classic comfort food.
The spa is at the helm of stylist Julien Farel, whose products will be on display throughout the salon and fitness faculty. The renovation also included the addition of four new meeting rooms, the largest seating 20 pax. Total meeting space is 1,900 sf.
