Recently we got a chance to check out the new Signature Suites at the Loews Regency Hotel in New York. Here's a photo tour.
The six designer-inspired suites were created by top local names, like Nate Berkus Associates, Meyer Davis Studio, Inc., Rottet Studio and Haynes-Roberts, Inc.
The new suites follow a $100 million renovation at the property that debuted in January 2014, which included a new dining concept managed by New York restaurateurs Gherardo Guarducci and Dimitri Pauli of the Sant Ambroeus Hospitality Group and developed by Executive Chef Dan Silverman. Additionally, celebrity hairstylist Julien Farel debuted a 10,000-square-foot beauty flagship complete with salon, spa and fitness center.
Nate Berkus Apartment
The Nate Berkus Apartment, designed by Nate Berkus, takes its inspiration from the history of the hotel and Park Avenue. The 1,000-square-foot suite includes a formal living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom and balcony. Bonus: Families or guests looking to entertain can also book a connecting bedroom for an additional 400 square feet of space.
The Glamour Suite
Inspired by cultural icon Marilyn Monroe, this Lauren-Rottet designed space is meant to be a reinterpretation of how the famed actress might have lived in her heyday in NYC.
Pop Art Suite
Another Rottet creation, this suite is inspired by Andy Warhol and explores the seminal Pop Art period. Black and white architectural finishes are meant to supply a bold background to the pastels, primaries and jewel tones in the suite's art and finishes, a look inspired by comic book and ad-based Pop Art works.
Classic 1970s Apartment
70s nostalgia is in at this space inspired by Milan in the 1970s. Designers Timothy Haynes and Kevin Roberts combine large steel sonces from a Paris flea market with a Venetian plastered wall for an eclectic feel.
The Bespoke Suite, designed by Will Meyer and Gray Davis, draws its inspiration from New York's famed fashion industry. The look includes nods to designers ranging from Halston to Geoffrey Beene.
Uptown Bohemian Suite
Meyer and Davis also designed this suite as an homage to New York's history of supporting a strong contemporary arts scene. A light airy backdrop is meant to evoke the Soho lofts of artists like Donald Judd.
