About Hotel Chandler
A piece of living history, Hotel Chandler occupies one of the city’s classic buildings, a 1905 masterpiece that originally opened as the Hotel Le Marquis, designed by architects Buchman & Fox, who also built the Sherry-Netherland Hotel. The Beaux-Arts building has always been an icon in the Flatiron district, and now it’s even better. In late 2012, the hotel wrapped up a $10-million renovation focused on carefully restoring the historic structure, including the limestone façade and a unique iron spiral staircase. Look down as you cross the lobby, which is known for its mosaic-tile “rug.”
For all its history, the Chandler today might fit best into the category of cool boutique hotel. The rooms reflect the classic trappings of the original building, with bay windows and cherry-wood furnishings, but they also feature contemporary designer touches like plush beds piled with Frette linens, ample desks with ergonomic chairs and gleaming bathrooms with high-end bath products. Other amenities include a complimentary Time Out New York, turndown service with gourmet chocolates, iHome stereos with docking stations, an umbrella in every room, and free overnight shoeshines.
The Flatiron neighborhood is often overlooked by visitors considering where to stay, but it shouldn’t be. It’s not Midtown or Downtown, but perhaps even better – it’s right between the two. Walk or take a quick subway ride to most of the city’s blockbuster sights, including the Empire State Building, Herald Square, the Flatiron Building, Union Square and Grand Central Terminal. Nearby is Madison Square Park and Mario Batali’s Eataly, an Italian emporium filled with rich cheeses, wines, cured meats, fresh pastas and more.
The hotel will be opening the highly anticipated restaurant, Juni, in 2013, by chef Shaun Hergatt, which will serve “high-end organic” cuisine.
