If you were “evah planning to attend an elegant swellegant party” in New York, then whether for work, pleasure or a mix of both, a stay at The Chatwal, will make you feel like a star.

Based near Broadway, there’s always magic in the air and the neon lights are bright, but The Chatwal has the energy of money and taste with decorative, grand art deco, furnishings that set it apart like a 1940’s Hollywood actress arriving at the red carpet, perhaps Elizabeth Taylor.

With a car, put on for guests, the hotel has worked on the finer details including a novel idea of a black make-up cloth to save white towels and Frette sheets - the Rolls Royce of bedlinen.

The hotel has 76 rooms, with many large rooms with outside balconies and terraces and also a generous number of suites which include the Sanctuary Suite with a full size, terrace above it, accessed by stairs.

To drink to your health there is a bar in the lobby and to celebrate your wealth you are invited to eat in the dining room which is called The Lambs Club, originally a theatrical club, with members including the likes of Fred Astaire and Charlie Chaplin. Celebrity chef Geoffrey Azkarian, who regularly appears on the Food Network show, brings American cuisine which includes pastas, lobster and steak to The Chatwal. All areas are fitted with royal red leather seating, for comfort and style.   

As well as a luxury stay and cozy bed, to keep fit there is a small pool with lap jets to help you get some serious exercise in, jacuzzi, plunge pool and gym. Afterwards there is a Mynd spa to unwind in with massage, facials, make-up and nails. For corporate events there is a spacious room for cocktail receptions upstairs with its own private bar. The venue can host c120 people and the event spaces have been modernized with audio visual equipment to allow for presentations.

So if you like French champagne, which some say is good for the brain, with some bon ami, whilst looking at the stars, I bet you will have a swell party, a swellegant, elegant party right here. 

Prices for a Superior Queen room start from $595 per night. To book, please visit, email or call +1 866 716 8136.

The Chatwal is part of Marriot Bonvoy and was voted “city's #1 Hotel by the 2018 Condé Nast Traveler Readers Choice Awards”.
