The Royalton Review

Back in the 1990s, the Royalton's lobby bar was one of the prime meeting spots for local A-listers and a redesign now attracts a new generation of movers and shakers—so be prepared to run the gauntlet of the buzzing lounge before reaching your room—but the helpful staff ensures the process goes smoothly. Updated guest rooms, designed by Charlotte Macaux, are comfortably sleek and elegantly outfitted with atmospheric lighting, fresh flowers, and candles changed daily. Some rooms have working fireplaces; there are plasma-screen TVs and iPads in every room. Luxe bathrooms have huge circular Roman soaking tubs and rainfall showers. The restaurant Forty Four is a solid locale for a quick bite, with a menu of global small plates and fancy cocktails.
