OVERVIEW of The Loew’s Regency Hotel
The Regency is a Loews Hotel, located on the Upper East Side near some of the City’s best shopping, museums and restaurants. With 379 rooms and 58 suites, it is one of my favorites for a number of reasons; great location, a wonderful bar, large rooms and one of the best weekend values for a hotel at this quality level.
THE ROOMS at The Loew’s Regency Hotel
My room, a luxury king, was a study in beige; walls, carpeting, draperies, and even the marble top desk and bath countertops. The monochromatic look was somehow very soothing and made the room very comfortable. Large by NY standards, it boasted a luxurious king bed with soft linens, an easy chair with an ottoman and reading lamp and a large marble topped desk. The marble bath, while small, had plush towels, a mini TV and Clarity toiletries.
DINING at The Loew’s Regency Hotel
The day begins with the infamous “Power Breakfast” at the Regency Bar & Grill, a term coined by the hotel’s founder Bob Tisch in the 70’s when he brought together the movers and shakers of the City during its bankruptcy problems. The tradition continues today and on any day you can see the powers of the worlds of Wall Street, entertainment, media and politics. By night the restaurant is a warm and comfortable spot serving small plates, steaks and fresh fish and other comfort food.
THE SPA at The Loew’s Regency Hotel
The Julian Farel Hair Care and Day Spa has taken a page from the Power Breakfast and created the “Power Hour” where the guests and enjoy three simultaneous services in an hour.
THE SERVICE at The Loew’s Regency Hotel
I was greeted promptly at the curb upon arrival and escorted thru the marble lobby to the front desk. A computer glitch made check-in longer than necessary, but it wasn’t unbearable. Overall service was very pleasant and there are some nice touches; a basket of fresh fruit and Fiji water upon arrival, virtually any amenity you might need in your room from Q-tips to a shoe shine sponge and a very innovative program called Home Sweet Loews where you can order up things like a chenille throw, night light, sound machine and other things that make you feel more at home. They’ll also provide things you may have forgotten; reading glasses, a belt, and tie and so forth.

WHAT OTHERS SAY About The Loew’s Regency Hotel
AAA Four Diamond Award
“Everyone gets the superstar treatment at this Upper East Side grande dame on Park Avenue; with its famous power breakfasts, afternoon wine in the Library, accommodating staff and wish-fulfillment address, it’s particularly impressive for out-of-town business clients; just a few nitpickers natter about spotty rooms.” ZAGAT
