Located in the once-grand neighborhood of Murray Hill, next to what used to be J.P. Morgan's New York mansion, Morgans Hotel looks turn-of-the-century grand from the outside, with its Beaux-Arts limestone facade, but inside is smaller and less intimidating than Morgans Hotel Group's other hotels. The lobby resembles a slightly updated but very tasteful mansion living room: leather armchairs, 1920s nickel lamps, and Parisian flea market cane tables. There's also an M.C. Escher carpet and Japanese paper screens; but the feeling is old-fashioned formal.
The rooms are stylish in a masculine way, but far from overwhelming. Bathrooms are modestly sized and tiled in black and white, while bedrooms are a calming caramel, ivory and pale gold. The fabrics provide an unexpected tingle — corduroy armchairs, suede banquettes and silk lampshades. There's even a cherry wood breakfast nook where you can nibble your croissant and scan Page Six.
Though the underground Morgans Hotel bar is quite the after-office hangout, it is incredibly dark, and therefore perfect for a clandestine rendezvous — but only if you can find your date. If you are hungry for a bit of outrageous style, eat upstairs at Asia de Cuba where you'll find massive expanses of white marble, the rather forbidding “communal” table, and a motel-style waterfall mural. The food is described as New York-innovative pan-Asian — sometimes dubious (like five spice foie gras with bananas), sometimes delicious, but always daring.
Morgans Hotel is proud to count execs-on-the-run among its fashionable clientele: after all, the midtown location makes it a perfect base for business travelers. But with only four to five rooms per floor Morgans is more intimate than the average business hotel. While the service may not be the in-your-face convenient that most execs demand, the staffers always make you feel right at home. Morgans is perfect for those with a bit of patience, who want a taste of New York, an exceedingly handsome atmosphere, but with just a bit of nostalgia for what they've left behind.
