In New York City's fashionable midtown neighborhood, the Loews Regency Hotel has just unveiled six designer-inspired Signature Suites. Created by top local names like Nate Berkus Associates, Meyer Davis Studio, Inc., Rottet Studio and Haynes-Roberts, Inc., we say the suites are a must-see for visitors...or locals seeking a glamourous staycation.
The Signature Suites are anchored by the Nate Berkus-designed suite on the 21st floor. 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.

Bohemian and Bespoke
Meyer Davis Studio Inc., helmed by Will Meyer and Gray Davis, designed the Uptown Bohemian suite on the 21st floor. We hear the suite's "light, airy backdrop" suggests the SoHo lofts of artists like Donald Judd, while tinted plaster walls evoke Julian Schnabel. As such, the room has an "eclectic" artwork selection that includes photography, paintings and found artifacts.
The Grand Suites
Rottet Studio designed The Grand Suites, which we hear were inspired by a singular cultural icon: Marilyn Monroe. Suite 1620, The Glamour Suite, is an interpretation of what might have been Marilyn’s Park Avenue pied a terre, evoking how she would have lived in the heyday of her celebrity glamour in New York City. The living room has a continuous cove light ceiling and a Wenge-clad wall behind the 55-inch TV. In the bedroom, a pink leather, diamond-studded headboard softly glows at the edges.
Next door is the Pop Art Suite, which plays off Marilyn’s immortalization by pop artist icon Andy Warhol. A custom-designed “Pop Art” carpet flows from the living room into the bedroom where a pastel-lacquered wardrobe wall creates a suede-lined niche for the bed headboard.

Haynes-Roberts, Inc. created the last suite, inspired by the glamorous apartments of Milan from the 1970s. In the bedrooms, velvet headboards set against suede walls are styled with over-scale vintage ceramic lamps.
The recent renovation complete's the hotel’s $100 million transformation earlier this year, including 321 apartment-styled guestrooms, Julien Farel’s new flagship salon and spa, and The Regency Bar & Grill.
