New York City

As you can imagine, every detail of the renovated Loews Regency had to be precise and thoughtfully selected.  The project scope not only covered the more obvious checklist such as the entryway, guest rooms, and lobby, but also included the daunting task of determining how to best use the public areas of the redefined hotel.

As Loews brings new and notable partners into the hotel, guests and New Yorkers alike will be more than delighted.  I know I am!  Renowned hairstylist Julien Farel and restauranteurs, Gherardo Guarducci and Dimitri Pauli, of Sant Ambroeus popularity will set up shop within the walls of 540 Park Avenue when it is set to reopen late this year.

The salon, relocating from its current Madison Avenue address, will wave its orange flags from the second floor of the Loews Regency.  The beautiful space will feature floor-to-ceiling windows (who doesn’t look better in natural light?) and an open floor plan that is rumored to be 10,000 square feet.  I’m trying my best not to think about the fact that the salon and spa will be over 10 times larger than my New York apartment.  Sigh.  Knowing Julien Farel’s clientele will follow his lead to the new location, the Loews Regency planned for a convenient dedicated entrance on 61st Street, so no need to fend off lobby traffic before your treatment.

Meanwhile, back on the first floor, traction has been made on the new restaurant concept that will prominently wrap around the corner of Park Avenue and 61st Street.  Sant Ambroeus Hospitality Group will manage the restaurant, an Italian grill, as well as a grab-and-go food option that is sure to be popular in the business-heavy neighborhood.  Finally, an alternative to my grilled cheese from the diners.  Not to worry for those who are looking to sign a contract over breakfast at the Loews Regency, the ‘power breakfast’ will return to its original home when the hotel reopens.

With new additions like these, I think we can all agree that the updated Loews Regency will be well worth the wait!
