Launching in time for what would have been Monroe's 89th birthday on June 1st, guests who book the package will have the unique opportunity to experience New York the way Marilyn experienced it, with exclusive access to New York City's best shopping and pampering experiences, including a private shopping outing at Bloomingdales. Ideal for girlfriend getaways or mother-daughter retreats, the package also includes a curated guide to Marilyn's favorite haunts and various landmarks from her films, as well as accommodations in one of the hotel's two new Signature Suites inspired by the movie star herself – The Glamour Suite and the Pop Art Suite.
“What better way to discover the city synonymous with style than through the eyes of one of its most timeless icons?” said Jim McPartlin, Managing Director, Loews Regency. “Perfect for today's sophisticated, urban travelers – from fashion enthusiasts and beauty mavens to lovers of old-New York glitz – Park Avenue Pied-à-terre allows visitors to take full advantage of Loews Regency's unparalleled location, putting the city's most high-end, luxurious offerings at their fingertips for a quintessentially New York experience.”
Guests who book the package will enjoy luxurious accommodations in Loews Regency's Glamour or Pop Art Suite. Designed by internationally-renowned architecture and design firm, Rottet Studio, Glamour and Pop Art are two of six new designer-inspired suites that debuted at Loews Regency in December 2014, marking the culmination of the hotel's $100 million transformation in 2014. The Glamour Suite is an interpretation of what might been Marilyn's Park Avenue Pied-a-terre, evoking how she would have lived in the heyday of her celebrity glamour in New York City. The suite features ladylike details such as a pink leather and studded headboard in the bedroom, and leopard print accents. Next door, the Pop Art Suite plays off Marilyn's immortalization by pop artist icon, Andy Warhol. Black and white architectural finishes inspired by comic books and ad-based Pop Art graphics provide a bold background, while pastels, saturated primaries and jewel-toned materials provide pops of vibrant color. Additionally, both the Glamour and Pop Art suites are stocked with an assortment of Marilyn's films and concession-inspired snacks, for a truly indulgent Marilyn movie marathon in-suite.
After a relaxing evening of movie screenings, guests can begin their starlet-approved itinerary with a visit to Bloomingdales, one of Marilyn Monroe's favorite shopping haunts. Here a personal stylist will assist you with all your shopping and styling needs. Guests can also spend the afternoon visiting iconic New York City destinations frequented by Monroe or showcased in her films with a curated guide received upon check-in.
After a day experiencing the best New York has to offer, guests can unwind in the comfort of their Signature Suite before heading to The Julien Farel Restore Salon & Spa located on the second level of the hotel for a blow-out.
