NEW YORK—Following a $100-million renovation, Loews Regency Hotel located here will reopen January 2014.
The redesign of the 379-room hotel will feature luxury guestrooms, 58 suites and four new private meeting spaces. Situated near Central Park, Madison Avenue and Museum Mile, Loews Regency Hotel first opened its doors in 1963. The renovation will blend modern design with classic style.
“We are thrilled to reopen this New York institution and greatly look forward to welcoming our guests back to the Loews Regency in January,” stated Jim McPartlin, managing director, Loews Regency. “Every detail of Loews Regency is focused on enticing today’s sophisticated, urban traveler, by offering them warm, personalized service and the benefit of the perfect Park Avenue location for a true New York experience.”
Loews Regency will also offer a new restaurant and dining concept, managed by New York restaurateurs Gherardo Guarducci and Dimitri Pauli of the Sant Ambroeus Hospitality Group. Together with Executive Chef Dan Silverman, they will oversee a menu with an emphasis on market-fresh 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-sq.-ft, beauty flagship complete with salon, spa and fitness at Loews Regency. The Julien Farel Salon will feature 30 custom-designed stations and private rooms for VIP clients.
The 1,700-sq.-ft. fitness facility will feature cardiovascular and strengthening equipment and a medley of spin bikes and elliptical machines.
