Map & Directions

It's a 30-40 ride from JFK Airport, depending on the traffic, and the fare is approximately $50, not including tip or toll. To reach the hotel via public transport, take the AirTrain from the airport and transfer to the E subway line to Manhattan at Jamaica Station. The journey should take about an hour, although it might be longer during peak periods. Times Square-42 Street is the nearest subway stop, and Grand Central Station is 10 minutes away on foot.

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Following a $100 million renovation, The Chatwal, A Luxury Collection Hotel is a quiet hideaway, two blocks from busy Times Square, and occupies a neo-Georgian building that was once the clubhouse of The Lambs (the lauded entertainers club, which counted Charlie Chaplin and Fred Astaire as members). According to About.com, it is home to one of New York City's top hotel spas, offering special treatments like the 'In a New York Minute' facial. A butler is also on-hand to cater to spa-goers needs.

The location is ideal for sightseeing, four blocks from Rockefeller Center and 15 minutes on foot from the Empire State Building, and there are six subway lines within a two-block radius.

Celebrity chef Geoffrey Zakarian runs the restaurant, serving top-notch modern American dishes such as Long Island duck with huckleberries and coffee molé, and The Lambs Club Bar hosts regular jazz nights.

Art Deco-style rooms are sophisticated with suede-covered walls and trunk-style cabinets. You'll find private bars -- complete with bespoke cocktail sets and menus -- as well as copies of The Great Gatsby and backgammon sets in every room, and some rooms have terraces with under-floor heating. Laptops, iPods and iPads can be borrowed for free, and the nightly turndown service supplies bottled water and a free shoeshining service.
