“A hidden gem”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

Boutique hotels nowadays try to be edgy and modern but this hotel is a classic hidden gem. I've been staying in so many contemporary style hotels lately I forgot how lovely it can be to stay somewhere with old world charm. Every touch speaks quality, Bulgari amenities, soft fluffy towels embroidered with "L", Wedgewood cutlery... The only flaw I could find in this hotel was the tv in the bathroom. It is mounted above the tub but if you're inside the tub you can't see anything because it doesn't tilt down. Otherwise everything was fabulous.

The Lowell is like having your own apartment in the Upper East Side. The rooms are large, luxe, spotless, cozy, and there is a little kichenette in each room. The location is perfect, right on 63rd and Madison, easy to get to theater or downtown. The people at the desk and Concierge are always helpful as are the doormen. And internet is free, as it should be.

I recently stayed in this wonderful and real Boutique Hotel in New York, the building has a lot of charm and the location is so elegant upper east side.
The staff is really nice, having real attention to the guests. The rooms and bathroom are very comfortable and large, even if mine was bit noisy due to the central AC in the backyard.
The reception area is small yet very charming and you feel at home with the scents of fresh flowers, soft drinks available.
I do regret the breakfast which is quite poor for the price.

Room Tip: Ask for room with a balcony

Wow. Worth the money. We've stayed there several times and have never been disappointed. Stayed in one of their smallest, least expensive rooms and it was beautiful and well appointed. Only "problem" was that the view from the window looked down upon other exterior walls, not the street, but this meant the room was extraordinarily quiet for NYC. The service is wonderful; they manage to meet and anticipate every need without being obsequious or fawning. A gem of a NY hotel.

Room Tip: they're all good!

Stayed here in March for a week and was treated like a member of the family, all staff were warm, welcoming and friendly. Special mention of Lovely Dutch girl in the Pembrooke room and the fabulous doorman, sorry dont remember their name, but they made me feel welcome everytime i stepped out and in..

Very good room facilities, comfortable bed, mini bar is really high standard and has got excellent choice, room service and dinner at posthouse all brilliant.

Location was wonderful, as it felt safe, and quiet and residential , as if I was coming home every night!
Thank you everyone at the Lowell, i will definately recommend and come back!

This Hotel is truly a gem! Discreet with understated elegance and low key luxury. If you are looking for flashy this is not the place to go but if you love discretion, class and efficency this hotel has it all. My room although rather small was very comfortable with good closet space and the kitchenette was really a plus. Service is exceptional in all aspects. As for location it is not the best for me as I generally prefer to be closer to downtown, but it is a short walking distance to the subway and many bus lines on Lex, Madison and Fifth.
