Exquisitely private and elegantly Upper East Side
The Lowell, which was constructed in 1927 as a 17-story apartment hotel, has an eye-catching Art Deco façade with brick and glazed terra cotta. Clearly, great care has been taken in preserving the original architecture both inside and out, though the interiors have gotten a fantastic contemporary upgrade, showcasing a blend of European classicism and American modernism. The 23 rooms and 49 suites are uniquely conceived, many with wood-burning fireplaces, terraces and kitchens. The Lowell’s true luxury is in its service. Thoughtful, personalized, anticipatory service is the cherry on the top at this exquisite hotel.
