Stepping into the regal U.S. Grant not only places you in the lap of luxury but also transports you back in time. The lobby of this city icon built in 1910 is a confection of luxurious French fabrics, crystal chandeliers, and Italian Carrera–marble floors. Guests sip tea and pre-dinner martinis here. Rooms feature custom Italian linens and original French and Native American artwork, and the sunny baths are elegantly designed with marble-tile shower enclosures and basin
sinks. The Grant Grill specializes in seafood and steaks whose preparations include herbs from the hotel's rooftop garden; the restaurant's 1940s-style New York decor adds a touch of glamour.
