Glamour in New York's theater district

What was once home to The Lambs, the nation’s first professional theater organization, is now a luxurious hotel with Art Deco details that harken back to a bygone era. The Chatwal Hotel sits in the heart of Manhattan’s Theater District, a quick walk from Times Square, yet emits an exclusive and luxurious aura the moment you walk through the door.

Each of the 76 rooms is meticulously designed in a 1930s Empire Art Deco style — think built-in cabinets wrapped in faux leather and rich color schemes including oxblood red and light ochre. The luxury doesn’t stop with the furniture (though the pieces certainly add to the allure); the mini-bar, which takes up an entire floor-to-ceiling section of the closet, is curated by chef Geoffrey Zakarian, the man behind the signature Lambs Club Restaurant downstairs.

A culinary hot spot, The Lambs Club Restaurant retains that Art Deco flavor in its dining room. A nod to the historic theater group (though it’s not affiliated with The Lambs in any way), the restaurant serves up modern takes on American classics. During breakfast, you’ll see New Yorkers and hotel guests alike fueling up with to-die-for omelets (the fluffiest you’ll ever have), while dinner brings a sleeker crowd.

The Chatwal may be a boutique hotel, but that doesn’t mean it skimps on amenities. On the lower level, you’ll find its intimate Red Door Spa alongside the fitness center and pool — all appropriately sized for the 76-room hotel. The spa boasts three treatment rooms, and rather than having to share a locker room with other spa-goers, guests have personal changing suites complete with steam showers.
