Description of the Metropolitan Hotel

Unveiled in 1961 in front of a crowd that included Judy Garland and Noel Coward, the Metropolitan Hotel - then called The Summit - was the talk of the town for its ideal midtown location and tropical deco look. Designed by famed architect Morris Lapidus, the building's curving facade coated in seafoam-colored brick was an extreme contrast to the sombre hues and straight lines of the surrounding skyscrapers.

During the next two decades, the bright colors were traded in for muted tones and the name was changed to Loews New York Hotel. But one thing remained the same: The hotel's popularity with people seeking a prime Manhattan location as a base for their city travels. Today, the original deco glory of the hotel has been restored and refined with 21st century amenities - including high-speed check-in, high-tech connections, and brand-new business facilities. The Metropolitan Hotel is a superior first-class hotel located in Midtown Manhattan.
