The Lady Ella Suite
The Queen of Jazz, Ella Fitzgerald, inspired the glam, soulful design of our Lady Ella Suite. The Lexington Hotel was built during the Golden Age of Jazz in NYC, when Ella made her debut at the Apollo Theater in Harlem. Known for her sultry smooth voice, ability to transcend expectations by appealing to all audiences, and her civil rights activism, Ella’s reach went beyond that of an entertainer. We paid homage to her illustrious career and cultural impact by creating a harmonious juxtaposition between her glamorous persona and her humble musical beginnings on the streets of New York. We used feather plumes to accessorize this 2-bedroom suite, rich soulful colors and luxe finishes we felt Ella would love, and the icon’s record albums as wall art.
