Unveiled in 1961 in front of a crowd including Judy Garland and Noel Coward, the Metropolitan Hotel (then called The Summit) was the talk of the town for its ideal midtown location and tropical deco look. Designed by famed architect Morris Lapidus, the buildings curving facade coated in seafoam-colored brick was an extreme contrast to the somber hues and straight lines of the surrounding skyscrapers. During the next two decades, the bright colors were traded for muted tones and the name was changed to Loews New York Hotel. But the hotel’s popularity with people seeking a prime Manhattan location stayed the same. Today, the deco glory of the hotel has been restored and refined with 21st-century amenities, including high-speed check-in, high-tech connections, and brand-new business facilities.
The Metropolitan Hotel is convenient to many major area attractions such as the Broadway Theatres, Rockefeller Center, Fifth Avenue Shopping, and Central Park. Other places to visit while staying at the Metropolitan Hotel include the Central Park, South Street Seaport, Empire State Building, and the United Nations. The hotel’s world-class style is reflected in the new inviting lobby. The Metropolitan’s guest rooms have an attractive, contemporary decor. Each guest room is carefully appointed and equipped with modern amenities for your comfort and convenience. The friendly staff will add to your comfort with their efficient and professional service.
