Now Open: The New and Improved Loews Regency

The luxury Loews Regency, (one of our picks for this year’s New & Noteworthy Hotels) has reopened after a year-long, $100-million renovation. The 379-room Midtown hotel now has a striking blend of contemporary and classic, including a 24-foot-high entrance that gives way to a marble lobby with velvet sofas, crowned by an art installation called Brise de Printemps by Brooklyn-based artist Nina Helms. The apartment-style rooms have a spacious layout, with lots of upscale amenities, including Frette linens and fluffy Stan Herman robes.

The new Regency Bar & Grill once again excels at power breakfasts, from classics like Eggs Benedict to low-cal favorites for the ladies-who-lunch brigade, including an egg-white omelette with a salad.  But, the restaurant is doing a lot more: Helmed by restaurateurs Gherardo Guarducci and Dimitri Pauli of the Sant Ambroeus Hospitality Group, and Executive Chef Dan Silverman (formerly of the Standard Grill), the market-fresh menu features a full lunch and dinner menu, from duck breast with dried cherries and pistachios to swordfish with golden raisins. For an ink-black espresso, stop by the Sant Ambroeus at The Regency, a coffee bar with fresh pastries.

But a power breakfast is only one part of taking on the world. The hotel is also introducing “power beauty” by celebrity hairstylist Julien Farel, who is opening the 10,000-square-foot Julien Farel Restore Salon & Spa in March. The salon specializes in anti-aging treatments, and offers a “power hour” blowout, manicure and pedicure, all within an hour.
