The Chatwal – A High-End New York City Hotel with an Illustrious History

By Brody Patterson


Updated on

Located in the heart of New York City’s famous Theater District, in Midtown Manhattan, The Chatwal, A Luxury Collection Hotel is a luxurious retreat which was once of the Big Apple’s most prestigious addresses – a title, it could be argued, it still deserves today.

Completed in 1905, the building has quite a rich history, as it used to be home to the illustrious Lambs Club, American’s oldest theatrical organization. In its current form, the hotel opened in 2010, after being magnificently renovated in the Art Deco style by master architect and designer Thierry Despont.

Accommodations comprise 76 exquisitely appointed rooms, boasting such high-end amenities as suede-covered walls, or leather wrapped double closets, desks, and nightstands. Every one of these spaces is meticulously designed to offer guests a memorable experience, with their brilliant mix of vintage and modern vibes.

The Lambs Club is still part of the hotel to this day – but we’re not talking about the famed theatrical group (which has since moved). This is now also the name of the The Chatwal’s 90-seat restaurant, currently run by Chef Geoffrey Zakarian, who brought his particular style of Modern American cuisine to this acclaimed establishment.
