In 2007, Royalton proudly re-opened its doors onto midtown Manhattan, rethought, re-imagined, but still an icon. Morgans commissioned Roman and Williams, the NY design firm, to recreate Royaton’s legendary lobby as a crossroads for international travelers and the New York elite.

The design – simultaneously sophisticated and complex – juxtaposes an icy cast-glass vestibule and brutalist steel and brass furnishings with soft suede upholstery, thick leather walls and hide-covered chairs to create a dark, sexy and luxurious space. Design and architectural details include a mammoth floor-to-ceiling hand forged cast-bronze fireplace, a twenty-foot screen that was once part of the facade of a building in France and hand-upholstered leather walls done in a pattern reminiscent of African tribal art.

The Royalton is a beautiful masculine hotel with a dark lush elegance.  It’s the perfect place to relax and unwind with a classic cocktail.  Have a grey goose martini or manhattan in the hotel lobby.  There’s nothing like sipping and admiring the view of the fire and pretty people that populate the space.
