The Champagne Suite’s interior reflects a contemporary and modern design, welcoming guests with a Nouveau Nero marble floor leading to a double-story Grand Parlour surrounded by floor to ceiling windows.

The Champagne cave, the only one of its kind in New York City, provides a rustic experience for guests directly adjacent to the dining room, while the tasting lounge and outdoor terrace house a black glass fireplace and custom designed hot tub where guests can enjoy unobstructed views.

The Grand Parlor showcases a magnificent grand piano with breathtaking 15-foot windows which gracefully flows into the dining room.

The terrace level is an intimate and romantic setting, featuring one of the few wood burning fireplaces while the exterior terrace features a formal manicured garden and green space with an elevated spa in a striking stone landscape.
Design and Functionality
In addition to featuring Hästens mattresses in every master and guest room, Lotte New York Palace has incorporated the iconic, trademarked checkered pattern in various shades throughout the suites as an extension of the interior design. Outfitted in soft natural tones with neutral textures and splashes of vibrant blue, the one-of-a-kind suites offer a residential design that invites guests to feel at home during their stays.
Handmade in India, the rugs in each suite beautifully complement the subdued palette, paired with working fireplaces that add a sense of warmth and comfort. Seamlessly connected, the dining space introduces a moody and textural environment with earthy browns and nudes contrasted by lighter pops of white and tan. Each suite consists of a library and seating area, some serving as the entrance to the bedroom, which opens the space and brings a new element to the room.
Large windows offer natural light and stunning views of Manhattan, while pops of color in the furniture add brightness to the rooms. The custom millwork walk-in closets incorporate the neutral colors and feature several full-length mirrors and deep storage space to keep items and valuables safe. The contemporary design continues into the suites’ bathrooms, which reflect cool tones, flaunting marble stone walls and floors within the space. Electric mirrors allow guests to control the lighting and mood, adding a sleek design element and sense of elegance to the space.
Curated by DM Art, the newly renovated suites feature a bespoke art collection that celebrates New York City with particular inspiration from nearby Central Park. The art collection is an eclectic mix of fine art prints, collage, paintings on canvas, photography, mixed media and multi-dimensional works. The urban- and nature-inspired imagery grounded in a neutral palette uses subtle pops of color and metallics to bring the narrative of classic New York elegance to life.
Each piece of art was designed and produced by DM Art’s in-house team of artists and artisans whose talents range from traditional fine art techniques to modern digital practices. The overall goal for the collection was to evoke the unique qualities of the property and its locale with some influences easily recognizable, while others subjective to the guest.
