Located in midtown Manhattan, Loews Regency Hotel New York reopened in January 2014 after completing a yearlong $100 million renovation. The hotel is known for popularizing the “power breakfast” (a working breakfast usually involving politicians and influential businesspeople), and the renovation ensures the tradition will continue.
The hotel has 1,900 square feet of meeting space in four small rooms. All are named after notable Central Park spots: Great Lawn is the largest at 525 square feet and seats 22; Sheep Meadow seats 16; Boathouse seats 10; and Conservatory seats six. All rooms have ample natural light, Internet access and updated audiovisual technology.
Loews Regency has 379 guest rooms, including 58 suites. There are four Terrace Suites that range in size from 950 to 1,350 square feet, and each has private outdoor space for small gatherings. Private dining for groups can also be arranged.
The 135-seat Regency Bar & Grill serves local ingredients with international flavors and has a 32-seat bar. A standalone Italian cafe is also on-site; it seats eight people and has takeout options. Also new is the on-site 10,000-sq.-ft. Julien Farel salon and spa.
Guest rooms have Frette linens, smart TVs and free Internet access. The on-site fitness center is open 24 hours. The hotel is walking distance from Central Park, Madison Avenue shopping and Fifth Avenue’s Museum Mile.
