Loews Regency Hotel Review: Three design studios put their heads (and individual styles) together to refurbish this midtown branch from the Loews Hotel Group. Rottet Studio, Meyer Davis Studio Inc., and Jonathan Nehmer + Associates have transformed a traditional hotel with a streamlined modernism that begins with the 24-foot-high marble entrance way decked out in cool earth tones. The lobby takes a different approach with plush velvets juxtaposed with local artist Nina Helms' "Brise de printemps" art installation. While above, the 379 guest rooms and suites continue the cool earth-tone color scheme. Amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi, flat-screen televisions, work desks and marble-top bathrooms. Guests need not venture far for a bite; on-site Regency Bar & Grill serves American fare, while the Milanese-style Sant Ambroeus at Loews Regency gives guests the convenience of grabbing a coffee and pastry on the go. Four fully equipped meeting rooms can accommodate small or large parties. The Spa offers facials, massages, manicures and pedicures, as well as a variety of other services. There is also a fitness center on for guest use.
