Now Open: Loews Regency Hotel Welcomes Guests Home

Iconic Flagship Hotel is Reimagined with a Spectacular Lobby, Luxury Guestrooms, and new Restaurant and Cafe

NEW YORK, Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Loews Regency Hotel, the landmark hotel in Midtown Manhattan, steps away from Central Park, Madison Avenue, and Museum Mile, welcomes guests back to the beloved New York institution following a year-long $100 million transformation.  The redesign of the 379-room hotel represents the dynamic vision of Jonathan Tisch, Chairman of Loews Hotels & Resorts. The hotel features 328 apartment-styled guestrooms and 58 suites boasting crisp lines and a fresh aesthetic, four private meeting spaces equipped with state-of-the-art technology, and introduces The Regency Bar & Grill serving lunch, dinner and the highly anticipated return of the Power Breakfast.  The new Julien Farel Restore Salon & Spa flagship will complete the guest experience, once it opens in March 2014.  The enhancements continue to evoke the spirit and traditions of the hotel's storied past while offering guests contemporary luxury benefits and amenities, all from an unparalleled Park Avenue address.

"For more than 50 years, Loews Regency has captured the hearts of guests from around the world through distinctly personalized attention to individuals," says Jim McPartlin, Managing Director, Loews Regency Hotel.  "By partnering with the city's finest talents and experts, we've put the best of New York City at our guests' fingertips, so that we can continue offering the sophisticated urban traveler an unmatched New York experience."

New York City's most talented design minds, including Rottet Studio, Meyer Davis Studio Inc, and Jonathan Nehmer + Associates were selected by Jonathan Tisch for the re-design of the hotel.  Blending modern design with clean and classic style, the expansive 24-foot high ceiling provides a grand entrance to the lobby that invites and energizes guests, bringing New York's unmistakable Midtown vibe to life.  A bar just off the lobby and in the forefront of The Regency Bar & Grill is the perfect place to watch the hustle and bustle of Park Avenue, while alluring seating and decor of the Lobby Lounge is an inviting respite to relax and mingle with other guests and visitors. The serene lobby designed by Rottet Studio offers a grand marble entrance with bespoke finishes and an urban sophisticated neutral palette. The Lobby Lounge area with rich velvet sofas, complete with power and hardline internet outlets, sits under a breathtaking art installation by Brooklyn-based artist Nina Helms called Brise de printemps (spring breeze).

Loews Regency's guestrooms, also designed by Rottet Studio, offer a fresh aesthetic combined with luxury, comfort and style. Guest rooms feature Frette linens and bathrobes, smart televisions and complimentary high-speed internet access.  Additionally, Loews Regency will debut six signature suites in spring 2014.  Ranging in size from 700 square feet to 1,550 square feet, the suites will each feature their own design concept and unparalleled views over Park Avenue and 61st Street.

The Regency Bar & Grill
The Regency Bar & Grill is a new restaurant and dining concept managed by famed New York restaurateurs Gherardo Guarducci and Dimitri Pauli of the Sant Ambroeus Hospitality Group, and helmed by culinary heavy-hitter Executive Chef Dan Silverman, whose resume includes The Standard Grill and Union Square Cafe.  Together Sant Ambroeus and Executive Chef Silverman will oversee the menu with an emphasis on market-fresh ingredients and modern interpretations of classic dishes that combine local New York produce with international flavors.  Combining the old and the new, the hotel's signature restaurant will reclaim its place as the pinnacle for the New York 'Power Breakfast,' having introduced the concept in 1975.  Designed by Meyer Davis Studio Inc. the restaurant encompasses a 135-seat dining room and a 32-seat full-service bar and lounge.

Sant Ambroeus at The Regency is a Milanese style coffee bar that brings the special brand of Sant Ambroeus coffee culture to life within a pristine, jewel box atmosphere.  With a separate entrance on 61st Street, the stand-alone, take-out concept offers signature pastries, sandwiches and coffee, and is the perfect destination for hotel guests, local residents and business people looking for a daily boost while en route to the many local upscale offices.

The Julien Farel Restore Salon & Spa
In March 2014, 'Power Hairstylist' Julien Farel is bringing 'Power Beauty' to Loews Regency Hotel.  This new beauty destination and fitness center features 10,000-square-feet complete with 32 custom-designed hair stations, eight spa treatment rooms and private suites for VIP clients. 

This revolutionary beauty flagship will cater to the ultimate New Yorker and international travel set in this prime location, embracing a multi-disciplinary approach to Anti-Aging – literally, head-to-toe, that will offer the best of hairdressing, aesthetics, dermatology, and fitness under one glorious roof.

To meet the demands of morning warriors, the Salon & Spa will open at 7am by appointment. The 'power' behind 'Power Beauty' is versatile in scope and can stem from Anti-Aging efficacy like the 'Power Facial" or the ability to be performed quickly and simultaneously like the 'Power Hour' which includes a blowout, manicure and pedicure services all within one hour.  On the ground floor, conveniently close to the legendary Power Breakfast, Julien Farel will launch JF Men, which will cater to every man's grooming needs, complete with two private multi-service rooms.

The 1,700-square-foot fitness center will feature cutting edge cardiovascular and strengthening equipment and a medley of spin bikes and elliptical machines.  The fitness center will be available 24 hours a day for all hotel guests and appointments for private health assessments, personal trainers and nutrition can be arranged through the hotel concierge.
