Loews Regency

Loews Regency Hotel
Upper East Side

The birthplace of the power breakfast, the Loews’s ground floor Regency Bar & Grill has remained New York’s see-and-be-seen spot for business meetings ever since the term was coined in the 1970s. In 2014, a $100 million overhaul and yearlong closure brought the property up to speed, with 379 guest rooms redone in a sleek, dove-gray palette with Frette linens, Stan Herman bathrobes, bathroom amenities by Julien Farel, and an executive desk with an ergonomic chair. The hotel is home to the two-level, 10,000-square-foot Julien Farel Restores Salon & Spa for men and women, plus a private salon space for VIP guests. (Rooms, from $399)
