The Lexington Hotel, Autograph Collection has a storied past including a long and illustrious history of hosting celebrities and high society guests. The building is itself a work of art, melding a high-end architectural design with chic, historic accents to maximize style and comfort. Rows of winged lions decorate the façade, and terracotta figures flank the Lexington Avenue entrance, reminiscent of those adorning Notre Dame. The spacious, marble-floored living room features sky-scraping pillars and plush décor echoing the glamour and sophisticated style of the 1920s, while our hallways present Soho-style black-and-white prints of the city’s most notable landmarks. Our extraordinary midtown hotel also serves as a modern museum, showcasing a variety of exceptional art that captures the essence of NYC, the jazz age and Art Deco style within our walls.
In June of 2018, The Lexington Hotel unveiled the “Norma Jeane Suite,” giving guests the opportunity to stay in the very room where Monroe and DiMaggio lived. The 600-square-foot suite, which underwent a complete redesign by Fringe, features a spacious living room and dining area that lead out to a 200-square-foot private terrace, as well as a master bedroom and bathroom. The suite was designed to create a similar atmosphere to what Monroe and DiMaggio would have called home, with luxe furnishings and pops of red symbolic of Marilyn's favorite lip color.
The full “Golden Dreams” collection will be on display throughout the suite, along with additional pinup calendars and memorabilia.
