  • The beautifully decorated rooms, some of which feature wood-burning fireplaces.
  • The small but sufficient gym that has plenty of natural sunlight, views of East 63rd Street and complimentary healthy snacks.
  • Majorelle Restaurant and Jacques Bar, two stylish mainstays for guests and neighbors.


Guests of this discreet Upper East Side hotel feel as though they are in one of the city’s rarefied co-ops, some of which, in fact, are just around the corner. However, the Lowell lobby offers much better service than even the best Park Avenue buildings, because the concierge can arrange for theater tickets and babysitters and fill any other special requests guests may have. The pied-à-terre concept continues with the interior design of the 70 guest rooms, most of which have soft, comfortable color schemes and tasteful mahogany furniture and prints, courtesy of the designer Michael S. Smith.

Of the 72 room options, most are suites. The best have terraces and/or wood-burning fireplaces and some come with kitchens. The Garden Suite, with two terraces (one large enough for a small dinner party) and a fireplace in the living room, is popular with couples who want to entertain when in town. Another favorite is the Penthouse Suite on the 17th floor. Envision a three-bedroom apartment with four terraces, views in all directions and interiors that manage to bring just the right sunny Southern California ease and glamour to Manhattan apartment living.

While there is no spa, the hotel can arrange for in-room treatments and there is a small but fabulous gym with windows looking onto East 63rd Street. The elegant second floor dining room serves food throughout the day and the ground-floor Majorelle Restaurant, Club Room and Jacques Bar are neighborhood mainstays.

Who Should Stay

Those visiting New York who would like a discreet, under-the-radar option ideally located on the border between midtown and the Upper East Side.
