The Lowell Hotel for many years was a small boutique hotel on the Upper East side of Manhattan and by all accounts a spectacular spot. A few years back the owners decided to take it down to the studs and bring in famed designer Michael Smith. The results are breathtaking. Smith’s attention to detail is impeccable. He single-handedly brought to life this once quaint hotel and turned it into an absolute gem. Stop in for a drink and be inspired how to transform small spaces into a magical experience.
