Designed by New York’s Post Company, the 139-room hotel pays homage to its roots, which date back to 1946, with seven inspired culinary venues and one photo-worthy pool deck. Sip cocktails and show off your bowling skills at The Gutter; dine around the clock at the 24-hour Beginners Diner, housed in a replica of a 1940s Worcester lunch car; or clink glasses at the Slim Aaron-inspired Pool Bar. There’s also Quixote, a Mexican hot spot serving up mezcal and tequila; cocktail haven The Mississippi Room; and the forthcoming Le Horse, a steakhouse that will go big on tableside presentations. To experience the best of the hotel’s decadent design, book a poolside Suze Suite, where layered patterns, bold textiles and a mirrored bar car are illuminated by ornate lighting. Up next, Lafayette will unveil its spa and wellness areas highlighted by Russian, Roman and Turkish baths. Your reservation awaits!
