Yes this is the very same Palace Hotel that Serena stays at in Season 1 of Gossip Girl. And there were no disappoints here. The Lotte New York Palace is truly fit for a queen, whether that be S or B.

Lotte New York Palace Tower Rooms Review 

So let's get right to it with this review. 

The Lotte New York Palace Hotel boasts an impressive 909 rooms and suites including 176 Tower rooms. The Villard Mansion, the main building, was recognized as an official New York City landmark in 1882.


Live Luxuriously Above


Last winter, I had to pleasure of staying in one of the gorgeous Tower rooms.

These rooms are newer and more spacious and they also start at the 41st floor, so no matter which tower room you're in you're guaranteed an awesome view. Although the best views do come with the Cathedral view rooms, which overlook the famed St. Patrick's Cathedral. 

Decor wise, the Tower Room is a mix of traditional and modern luxury. Also, finding a room that spacious in New York is extremely difficult. Trust me. I know. I've stayed in some pretty tight spaces. So with 465 square feet of space and 2 queen beds, the room I was in was anything but claustrophobic. 

Alright so on to...Amenities. Amenities. Amenities. 

You have to have your luxury amenities in a luxury hotel. A night in a tower room will get you all of the following: 

1. Complimentary welcome refreshments
2.  Unpacking services
3. Reading materials
4. Complimentary WiFi (for all you digital nomads or social media obsessed millennials out there) 
5. Customized bath upon request
6. Complimentary shoe shine and valet pressing service
7. Multilingual private concierge
8. House car service (ride in a Mercedes GL350 or Maybach anywhere within a 20 block radius! Unfortunately I didn't get to experience this because Snowpocalypse 2016 happened while I was there.) 
9. Complimentary shuttle service to Broadway, theater district

In addition to all of this you'll also have a private check in area, private elevators, nightly turn down service, and most importantly 24 hour room service. I always have to order room service when I'm at a hotel. I don't know why, but it's a little traditional treat I always have to gift myself. The food in the towers is supposed to be better than in the main hotel. But I can't really say anything about that because I've never stayed in the main rooms. The food was delicious. And we were basically forced to order room service because of the blizzard that hit!  

More Perks

The service here was wonderful. Every staff member went above and beyond to make sure our stay was great. They were especially accommodating with the blizzard situation. People were complaining that the room service food would take too long if everyone was ordering but we didn't have any problems at all. The hotel is also situated in the perfect location. It's walkable to many sights and is only a few minutes walk away from the closest subway station. 

The Cost 

And now I know what you're all wondering. What will it cost for 1 night here. A Tower Room will run you about minimum $500 a night in the summer and minimum $750 a night in the winter.
