New York City evokes images of busy streets, bright lights, an iconic skyline made of soaring skyscrapers, movies, art, comedy. The city that never sleeps. The Chatwal Hotel is a sanctuary right in the center of this hustle and bustle of city life.  On West 44th Street, only a moments walk from Times Square and Broadway, it’s perfectly situated to explore midtown Manhattan by foot, venture further north or south via the Subway, or head east to experience trendy Brooklyn.

They have amenities, experiences and offers tailored for families throughout the year, including in-room shows, babysitting services, goodies for baby and mom, and an organic baby food menu curated by The Lambs Club restaurant downstairs. Take advantage of complimentary bicycles and take the kids up to Central Park to explore the sprawling green space and burn off some energy.

This beautiful landmark hotel was built in 1905 by Stanford White and has been restored and renewed by master architect Thierry Despont and was re-launched in 2010, giving it all of the charm of an original Manhattan building with all of the luxe of an expertly curated renovation.

The hotel feels like a hidden gem. Walking down the inconspicuous urban street, you’ll spot The Chatwal logo hung gracefully over a subtle red door. Through the door, you’ll be greeted with an air of calm and peace. The lobby is beautiful and serene, the staff are warm and friendly; you’re instantly at home.

The Chatwal houses 76 rooms, including 29 suites and 14 themed suites with spacious designer terraces. You can take things at your own pace and tailor your visit to suit you down to the finest detail.

There’s a team of professional Butlers, 24-hour in-room dining, and distinct private bars to give you a bespoke experience. For a taste of the hotel evening vibe you can head downstairs for a cocktail in the lobby or – we highly recommend – make a reservation at The Lambs Club, a divine little restaurant in the hotel. All softly lit, old New York-feel decor and impeccable service accompany a beautiful menu and extensive wine list.

With a decent fitness room, Elizabeth Arden Red Door spa, small swimming pool, and hot jet-spa, you could spend your whole New York vacation in The Chatwal. We suggest heading out to explore during the day – so easy considering its central location – and head back to your new home after your busy day exploring, sightseeing, shopping and making family memories in The Big Apple.
