25 Rooms / 47 Suites
Located in a landmark 1920s building on the Upper East Side, The Lowell captures the essence of an elegant country house with a blend of English prints, floral fabrics and Chinese porcelains that surprisingly works. Many suites boast wood-burning fireplaces, a rarity in Manhattan. All rooms are individually decorated, and The Lowell’s specialty suites are a unique treat. The Hollywood Suite reflects the 1930s silver-screen era with photos of glamorous ingenues. The English influences extend to the Pembroke Room, where Anglophiles can throw their pinkies up at tea time (breakfast and brunch is also served). But for something uniquely American, check out the clubby Post House, a well-respected New York steakhouse that serves terrific chops.
