The Lowell Hotel由Henry Stern Churchill（1893-1962）设计，于1925年至1926年间建于Leo Wise。其艺术装饰/现代立面是砖块和玻璃貂皮陶器的杰出设计。
Owner and Design Director Dina DeLuca Charouni, along with her team, the London based architect Mark Pinney (Harrods) and designer Michael Smith (The White House), in 1984, restored every nook to luxurious perfection.
Known for its discreet service, under the watchful eyes of Heiko Kuenstle, GM and Eric Dupaix, Director of Operations, whether decorated for the holidays or in full bloom on a beautiful spring day, The Lowell specializes in understated elegance. Elite film industry executives and CEOs from the major fashion design houses; publishing and financial worlds are regular patrons.
In a serene setting on the second floor of The Lowell,The Pembroke Room, serves as the ideal backdrop for Executive Chef,Michael Fred’slegendary afternoon teas. All are regally presented with aristocratic ambiance on hand-painted Washington Pickard china, one of America’s finest china companies.
The management holds steadfast to a traditional English tea menu that changes several times a year but often with a non-traditional twist. Do not be alarmed if you find your cucumber savory on grain bread instead of the palette cleansing white with mint. A selection of properly sized scones served warmed and passed by the wait staff, includes Chef’s very own strawberry preserves. So scrumptious in fact, discerning diners – both Lowell Hotel guests and area residents alike – often ask for a sampling of Chef’s preserves to take home as a reminder.
Each sweet and pastry is finely crafted to enhance the experience of the guest.
在洛厄尔的赞助人酒店了thirty-five years, in addition to the regular afternoon teas and theme teas, I have given-as well as recommended others for private tea parties. I have found for the most part the management to be receptive to my tea etiquette and menu suggestions. I have yet to be disappointed with the results.

Afternoon Tea at The Lowell Hotel, Pembroke Room with What’s Cooking America
We were looking forward to meeting with What’s Cooking America Columnist, Ellen Easton for tea in thePembroke Room在The Lowell Hotel。Ellen has been a Tea Travel columnist for us for over 10 years and our first time meeting her in person and sharing an afternoon tea.
The Lowell is a quaint boutique hotel that is warm and luxurious hidden by a modest entry from the street. You would not know from the outside what a gem lies within until you step through the door.
We were greeted in the lobby by the Director of Operations of The Lowell, Eric Dupaix. He walked us through lovely parlors, library, and sitting rooms, each with their own working fireplace. Guests of The Lowell can easily find a respite from the busy city while staying there. A lovely restaurant is hidden within the walls of The Lowell, the马弗雷。他们serve a French/Moroccan cuisine in a colorful dining room, with bursting bouquets of fresh flower arrangements and a miraculous illumination of bright natural light flooding through the dining areas.
Mr. Dupaix escorted us to the stairway that took us to the second floor when our tea time approached where we ascended to thePembroke Room。通过大型法国人进入，到俯瞰欧洲风格的茶处沙龙的可爱角桌，装饰着圣诞装饰和新鲜的绿色植物。桌子全部设定，抛光银和假日颜色向我们展示了一个完美的下午茶经验。亚慱足球网址多少yabo体育vip
The tray of sweet delights was displayed with, small pecan tarts, squares of deep red velvet cake, a seasonal macaron, carrot cake, and a crunchy chocolate mousse. Scones were served fresh from a basket by the waiter with Devonshire cream, lemon curd, strawberry preserves, and orange marmalade.
The tea menu had quite a variety of teas to choose from their “Grand Cru Teas” of a premium Darjeeling, a Himalayan 1英石Flush, and a Assam Donyipolo。我们还发现了一种经典的黑人，绿色和特色度假选择和水果茶输液的旋律，这听起来太好了，不能尝试。好消息，你可以在你的第一个锅里改变茶，另一份混合尝试。
