The location of the Lowell offers something rare in New York- quiet while still being close to attractions. It is in a residential neighborhood, away from the garbage trucks and sirens that are typical almost everywhere else. The hotel small, about 50 rooms, so the staff recognize you, and know your name. The decor is classic, but does not feel old. Our room was updated with a bath that matches what you'd find in a Four Seasons or Ritz property. The restaurant was excellent, fitness center was fine, and the concierge was able to find face-price tickets for one of the harder shows in the city. Walk 1/2 block and you are on Madison Avenue, a bit further an you are near Central Park and the many museums. i

I could not disagree with "areviewer"'s review (talk about awkward english).

If you read my review on The Surrey Hotel, I say it is my second favourite hotel in New York.....I don't mention my favourite.

Somethings you must keep sacred, but then after reading what "areviwer" wrote, I felt compelled to spill the beans.

There is a bar..... and a restaurant (one of the best in the city) but discreet.
Did I say best in NYC? .... I mean in America. I'm actually quoting Wine Spectator, Esquire magazine and NYTimes. This is where real NYers dine.

The rooms are DIVINE!
You feel as if you are in your own pied a terre.

I could go on and on..... but I will allow you to find out for yourself.

This property is the standard that I compare all Hotel experiences to.
Period.

Room Tip: Not a bad room in the hotel, but if you would like a fireplace room do request it.

The hotel's location is fantastic however -the following points should be considered before booking:

1. It is very discrete - however, the service for me was a bit impersonal at times
2. The hotel has more of a serviced apartment/ B&B feel - this is fine if its what you are looking for - but a bit souless. The public areas are very small and there is no bar
4. The decor in the public areas as well as the restaurant is dated - lots of floral patterns and chintz
5. The rooms are very well appointed and reasonably large - do ask for one of the renovated ones

I am glad I experienced The Lowell - but for me - if you are looking at staying in this area - The Surrey does it much better at a lesser price. Even if both were the same price I would go for the surrey

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.
