The hotel that started it all, Morgans, located in the heart of Manhattan, is a quietly sophisticated hotel offering understated elegance and unparalleled service in an intimate, friendly, home-away-from-home atmosphere. With interiors by the renowned French designer Andree Putman, Morgans chic, decidedly residential feel created a sensation in the hotel industry when it opened 20 years ago, and is still the choice for discerning travelers seeking the very best.
With its ultra-comfortable Guestrooms, cozy Living Room, the exciting new Morgans Bar, and the wildly popular Asia de Cuba restaurant, Morgans has earned its reputation as a New York classic.
Conceived by critically acclaimed French designer Andree Putman, Morgans 113 guestrooms and suites bespeak a quiet, timeless elegance. Soothing shades of taupe, camel and ivory are accented by birdseye maple paneling, luxe bedding, plush ultrasuede banquettes, silk throw pillows, roomy corduroy clubchairs, and the now legendary black and white tiled bathrooms.
The walls have been painted using a special technique that creates a subtle impressionist effect, providing the perfect backdrop for original black and white photographs, specially commissioned by the hotel from world-renowned artist Robert Mapplethorpe.
Morgans offers multi-service meeting spaces in New York with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment, computers with internet access, smart boards, electronic flip charts, plasma monitors for audio-visual playback, portable computers, mobile phones and fax machines available upon request.
Also available for special functions are the hotels acclaimed Penthouse, Living Room, Morgans Bar, and Asia de Cuba restaurant.
From the day it opened, Asia de Cuba has been one of New Yorks liveliest and most popular restaurants. Under the direction of acclaimed restaurateur Jeffrey Chodorow, Asia de Cuba serves an innovative menu that blends the best of Asian and Latino cuisines in a soaring and beautifully theatrical Philippe Starck-designed space. Featuring a 30-foot long illuminated marble communal table that runs through the main dining area, a 15-foot tall photo lightbox featuring a running waterfall, ultra-comfortable high-backed white banquettes, and cozy living room areas with fireplaces.
One of New Yorks hottest nightspots, Morgans Bar is tucked away in a surreally glamorous subterranean world beneath the hotel Lobby. The bars rustic exposed brick walls, poured concrete floor, and dozens of flickering candles evoke the feeling of a charming wine-cellar but for the outrageous collection of furniture, from Louis XVI gilded fauteuil chairs upholstered in bold digitized prints of flowers, an enormous carved sleigh bed fashioned entirely of clear Lucite, chain metal curtains, and side tables that look like melting blocks of ice.
In keeping with its residential mood, the Living Room at Morgans feels like the private library or drawing room of a classic estate transported to midtown Manhattan. Filled with a charming mix of styles, from comfortable English sofas, to a midcentury modern Danish chair, to African carved wood side tables, as well as televisions, computers, and shelves filled with books on everything from film and fashion to politics and geography, the Living Room is the ideal place to relax, have a drink, enjoy a movie, read a book or play a computer game.
