... you won't want to go out.
In the thirties and forties, gentlemen from film and theatre claimed this private space, enjoying the perfect location, club amenities and ahem.. discretion. Today- with 2012 sparkle, we can all enjoy it. The property is a jewel box. The staff understands how to deliver the magic travelers appreciate. Perfect enclave. Steps from theatres.
The earlier reviews are spot on. The upgrades will delight you; cuisine will make you smile. It's just far enough away from Times Square (one long block) to have a residential feel, yet you can zip to restaurant row in heels, in minutes. I don't thing a bad view is possible here. The historical buildings facing The Chatwal add so much. Terraces are fenced, landscaping is added... so nice.
The photos will help you take in the art deco decor. But there is more to it... the sense of belonging once you get to know the people at reception is one of family. You'll think you've come into a manor house as a guest. The property has no pretense... just that sense of belonging. I appreciated that full coffee service is set out very early in the morning, in the alcove near the elevators. No need to walk through a lobby, ask for it or wait for the restaurant to open.
I've enjoyed many a rainshowers in my life....these baths take it to a new level.
Thanks to Martin for arranging porting of our luggage across town, in the rain, like it was nothing at all. Elizabeth, you were delightful to get to know. Sorry we didn't have more time. Gemma - thanks for the tour and update on the property. Best wishes on your August arrival.
I will definitely be back and will refer.
