The Lexington Hotel, Autograph Collection

New York, NY

All that jazz! Built in 1929, the historic 725-room Lexington Hotel is rich in Art Deco style and Jazz Era ambiance. Located on Lexington Avenue and East 48th Street, the hotel was landmarked in 2016 as one of the most architecturally significant properties in Manhattan. Today, the pet-friendly member of Marriott’s Autograph Collection nods to its past as a respite for celebrity residents and a refuge for guests in the Prohibition Era.

Destined for Fame

Each of our themed specialty suites evoke a legendary guest. Suite 1806, the Norma Jeane Suite, unfolds in the rooms where Marilyn Monroe and New York Yankees Hall of Famer Joe DiMaggio spent their 274-day marriage in 1954 (the actress filmed The Seven-Year Itch during that time!). The Lady Ella Suite is inspired by frequent visitor Ella Fitzgerald, who crooned across the street at Basin Street East nightclub in the 1960s. And The Arthur Godfrey Suite pays homage to the entertainer who broadcasted his radio show live from the hotel’s Hawaiian Room, where hula dancers once performed while revelers sipped coconut willies!
