If you're visiting New York to admire the stunning Art Deco architecture, then you may as well complete the experience by staying in one of the city's famous Art Deco style hotels.

Just a short walk from Times Square, the Chatwal, on West 44th Street, is in an ideal central location to explore some of the world's most iconic Art Deco buildings like the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Rockefeller Centre and, if you’re prepared to walk a little further, the Eldorado off Central Park.

The midtown location also makes it ideal for shopping on Fifth Avenue, taking in a musical or two on Broadway and seeing those locations you're familiar with from all those blockbuster films you’ve seen over the years. Despite its proximity to Times Square the hotel is surprisingly quite, so you shouldn’t have any problems getting plenty of rest after an exhausting day site seeing and shopping.

With just 76 rooms, 30 of which are suites, the hotel has a smaller more intimate feel than many of the larger hotels nearby and as you'd expect of an American hotel, service is top notch thanks to the very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast is excellent and the Lambs Club is a well-known New York destination restaurant serving superb food. You’ll be pleased to know there's a small gym and swimming pool to help work off any overindulgence at breakfast or dinner!

The hotel itself was built in 1905 by Stanford White and relatively recently, 2010 to be exact, has been fully restored by master architect Thierry Despont and re-launched. The interior is a modern Art Deco delight with warm woods, polished metal accents and splashes of bold colours used to great effect throughout the building. Rooms are based on the glamour of early 20th-century travel, with faux leather wrapped cabinets resembling classic luggage of the period, luxurious suede walls and tinted mirror clad baths.
