Why Stay At The Chatwal
A 1930s midtown Manhattan hangout has been converted into the 76-room Chatwal; it's now the buzziest place to stay in the Theater District.
Once a 1930s hangout for the likes of Fred Astaire, Irving Berlin, and John Barrymore, the Lambs Club, originally designed by Beaux-Arts architect Stanford White, has been reinvented as the new 76-room Chatwal. A decade in the making, the hotel is named after Indian entrepreneur Sant-Singh Chatwal (father of hotelier Vikram Chatwal). For the interiors, Thierry Despont put an updated twist on Art Deco: from the red-leather banquettes and a limestone fireplace to the terrazzo floors and leather-wrapped closets. Bellhops wear pillbox hats, and rooms are stocked with backgammon sets and copies of The Great Gatsby. A former library has been converted into the Stanford White Studio, a lounge and event space complete with original bookshelves and wood paneling. The hotel's restaurant, appropriately called the Lambs Club, is Manhattan's new hot spot: chef Geoffrey Zakarian serves modern American fare (olive oil and lemon-infused chicken, buttery poached halibut) while the bar turns out retro cocktails by Milk & Honey mixologist Sasha Petraske, who pioneered the city's speakeasy trend.
Shop New York's premier boutiques like a fashion insider thanks to The Chatwal's Fashion Cognoscenti package. Stylist Jean Mayer will tailor the day's itinerary to your tastes and help you select from this season's hottest trends (half-day tour for two people from $650, including private chauffeur and champagne).
Decompress at The Chatwal Spa by Kashwére with one of the oxygen infusion facials; the hyperbaric oxygen technology instantly hydrates and continues to rejuvenate the skin days after your treatment (facials from $100).
Arrive at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) which is approximately 18 miles (about 30-45 minutes depending on traffic) away from the hotel.130 West 44th Street, New York, New York, United States

Gansevoort Street to West 30th Street, along 10th Avenue.
Where to Eat: Go no further than The Chatwal's first floor for a pretheater tasting menu at Geoffrey Zakarian's Lambs Club. Opt for the chef's tasting menu, where signature dishes include grilled Atlantic cod with celery root and lobster sofrito and a decadent lemon meringue tart drizzled with chamomile broth.
132 W. 44th St. 1-212-997-5262
Three-course tasting menu for two $88.
Where to Drink: The Bar Downstairs, a subterranean bar beneath the Andaz 5th Avenue lobby, feels more like a swank private lounge than the traditional midtown watering hole. Try a Cellar Door—Pimm's, lemon, bergamot syrup, spiced rum, and allspice dram.
