Room Request! The Chatwal

Inside a NYC hotel with a unique experience for guests

The Chatwal New York, a Luxury Collection Hotel is a true haven in Manhattan’s bustling Midtown area. Its rooms and suites are elegantly appointed with Art Deco-style décor and furnishings, and the amenities are unmatched. Butler service, a chauffeured car and an indoor pool are just the beginning. Guests can enjoy treatments at the downstairs Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa and dine at top New York Chef Geoffrey Zakarian’s acclaimed restaurant The Lambs Club.

For guests new to the city (or ones familiar with it and looking for an adventure), The Luxury Collection has partnered with Leica to offer a unique package that includes suite accommodations, daily breakfast at The Lambs Club and access to a Leica T Camera that comes with a photography destination guide curated by New York-based Leica photographer Jillian Guyette. Guests can venture out to visit each suggested spot and document their jaunt on the high-tech camera. The package is available at Luxury Collection hotels in Shanghai, Paris and the United Arab Emirates, and it will roll out in San Francisco and Milan later this year.
