NEW YORK, Oct. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lowell, a landmark luxury hotel tucked away in the heart of Manhattan, has been awarded the coveted title of the #1 hotel in New York City in Condé Nast Traveler's Readers' Choice Awards.
A member of the Leading Hotels of the World, The Lowell was established in 1927 and has been independently owned since 1984. Located within New York City's illustrious Upper East Side, the 74-key property continues to prosper as a timeless classic. The luxuriously elegant rooms and suites inspired by designer Michael Smith's timeless residential style are punctuated with original wood-burning fireplaces, gourmet kitchens and beautiful terraces with spectacular city views.
"It is a great honor to receive this recognition from Condé Nast Traveler's esteemed readership, and we are elated that this is the second #1 NYC hotel honor we've been granted this year," said Heiko Kuenstle, General Manager of The Lowell. "The Lowell is a beloved second home to International guests and New Yorkers alike, from leaders in business to acclaimed entertainers.

At The Lowell, guests savor exquisite French classics with Mediterranean influences from the Riviera to Morocco at the hotel's signature restaurant Majorelle, led by Executive Chef, Emmanuel Niess, who joined Majorelle from several Michelin starred restaurants in Belgium. Chef Niess effortlessly but deliberately combines color, texture and temperature in dishes that are familiar but unanticipated.
