One of the city’s first boutique hotels, Morgans was established by Studio 54 cofounder Ian Schrager in 1984. Renovated in 2008, the Murray Hill hotel juxtaposes a Renaissance-style façade with a contemporary interior by celebrated French designer Andrée Putnam. Putnam’s palette of grays, blacks, and whites extends from the lobby (also furnished with 1930’s armchairs) to the 113 guestrooms, decorated with white duvets, black-and-white-checkered throws, plush gray window seats, and black-and-white photos by Robert Mapplethorpe. Morgans also has a complimentary continental breakfast and a stylish living room area with antique French leather chairs, flat-screen TV’s, computers, and well-stocked bookshelves.
