Lowell. Smith had recently done over many of the suites and rooms, so the $25 million was earmarked for the first floor: Majorelle, the new Jacques, the Club Room, and the lobby. Smith's elegant and deliberate hand shows wonderfully in the French art deco furnishings, statuary, and art, such as Twombly's Roman Notes II offset lithograph, a David Hockney lithograph, a 1965 Josef Albers screen print, and Bert Stern's photographs of Marilyn Monroe. The 1932 classic movie Grand Hotel fed him inspiration. Botticino Classico blue and white marble blocks from the Botticino quarry, Feau & Cie French oak woodwork, leather-paneled walls, French Oak parquet flooring, and hand-painted paneling give the Club Room and Jacques a certain air … and the distinct whiff of old money.
