Hotel Lexington, New York Postcard

The postcard shows the Revere Room of the Hotel Lexington, New York. The back of the postcard reads:

New York's Smartest Bar and Restaurant. Here you may see the famous murals depicting the life of Paul Revere. Open for breakfast, luncheon, dinner and supper-delicious meals at popular prices. Hotel Lexington. Lexington Avenue at 48th Street New York. Charles E. Rochester (Vice Pres. and Man. Dir.)

Unfortunately I couldn't find any information about the hotel, and am not sure if this hotel is the same as the Radisson Lexington Hotel. The hotel lies right in the heart of Manhattan's prestigious East Side, and has offered the finest in hospitality since 1929 (The Lexington Hotel was completed six months before the market crash of 1929 and costing $5,000,000.) The 2-storey lobby is fairly large and combines a modern style with traditional touches, such as the 3 tier chandelier, the polished brown & beige marbled floor and sprawling oriental rugs.
