Lotte Palace New York perfectly marries Manhattan’s rich 19th-century history with the modern day throughout,most notably in the landarked original building, which is connected to a modern tower. There’s a quaint courtyard between the street and the front entrance; once you step inside, you’re greeted by an opulent lobby — one of the most well-preserved in the city. Get to know the history of New York through its six restaurants and bars, which include Rarities, a rare wines and spirits bar that recalls interiors of a bygone era, or via the hotel’s craft-cocktail bar. The Jewel Suite by Martin Katz, created in collaboration with the esteemed jeweler, is a triplex suite featuring a two-story crystal chandelier and radiant features like mirrored furniture, sumptuous velvet fabrics in rich dark purple and grey hues, and shiny silver art sculptures and light fixtures. When you book the suite, you will receive a complimentary Martin Katz diamond microband ring, as well as a private consultation with the jewelry designer himself should you want to design a custom piece.
