Heads up, New York fans! Loews Regency Hotel in midtown Manhattan is now accepting reservations for stays beginning on January 16, 2014. The reopening of the flagship property follows a $100 million renovation, and the hotel is returning with a new restaurant as well as a top-tier urban salon and spa. For business guests, the hotel will have four new private meeting spaces.
The 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—will have a menu with an emphasis on seasonal ingredients and modern interpretations of classic dishes that combine local New York produce with international flavors and palates.
Celebrity hairstylist Julien Farel will debut a 10,000-square-foot beauty flagship complete with salon, spa and fitness at Loews Regency. The Julien Farel Salon will have 30 custom-designed stations and private rooms for VIP clients. The Julien Farel Anti-Aging Spa will feature derm-focused, anti-aging science with traditional French techniques for a transformative spa experience. Adjacent to the Regency Power Breakfast, Julien Farel will launch JF Men, which will cater to men’s grooming needs.
The 1,700-square-foot fitness facility will have modern cardiovascular and strengthening equipment as well as spin bikes and elliptical machines. The fitness center is open 24 hours a day for all hotel guests, and a private health assessment or personal trainer can be arranged through the hotel concierge.
