The Lowell, located all the way up there on the Upper East Side at 63rd Street, boasts one very special touch that sets it apart from all of the other New York City hotels. All of them! You see, its rooms have that perfect reminder of old school romance, the wood-burning fireplace. In addition, The Lowell happens to be one of Fashion Week Daily's recommended hotel hideaways, meaning that it's popular with the chic set who are notoriously choosy over their accommodations.
Cut a slice of the fashionable romantic atmosphere of the place by booking their "Dinner and a Movie" deal, starting from $495 and lasting through March 31. WIth it, you'll get a night in front of a fireplace and access to the hotel's extensive movie library. Curling up in front of the fire and with a good movie can't be done on an empty stomach of course, and so the package graciously includes a three-course gourmet dinner, chocolate fondue dessert, and buttered popcorn and champagne in your room.
This kind of room package goes way beyond Valentine's Day; this is the heavy romantic stuff of an anniversary or a marriage proposal. It's just too bad that the fireplace doesn't include a thick bearskin rug, otherwise The Lowell might have a permanent place in our fantasies.
