Located on 44th Street, Chatwal, a Luxurious Collection hotel is steps from Broadway theaters and the city’s media and financial giants. Designed by Stanford White, its 1930s Empire Art Deco look has been re-imagined by Thierry Despont in rich hues of saffron, sepia and ruby.
The 76 guestrooms and suites boast custom amenities, such as handmade Shifman mattresses and 400-thread-count Frette linens. All rooms are also state of the art, with complimentary internet access, Blu-ray/DVD players (upon request) and iPod docks.
The Chatwal also features a pool and 24-hour fitness center, and is home to The Red Door Spa by Elizabeth Arden. Guests are invited to enjoy celebrated “Iron Chef” Geoffrey Zakarian’s Lambs Club Restaurant, featuring modern American Cuisine. Wireless internet access and butler service is complimentary in all guestrooms.

The Chatwal hotel is an elegant mire boutique -style hotel with a warm contemporary decor very close to Times Square. The staff are very friendly and helpful, very good rooms with a larger bathroom, great Red Door Spa within the hotel and a great American - European cuisine restaurant with the Lambs Clubs. Overall, I can recommend this hotel.
The Chatwal is perfectly located right by all the action but in quiet side street. It is a boutique hotel with nicely contemporary designed rooms of a good size for Manhattan too & super large bathroom & very well equipped.
