The iconic Maidstone Hotel will reopen its doors June, 2024 under the discerning new vision of John Meadow and his esteemed team from LDV Hospitality. The over 150 year old boutique hotel recognized for its whitewash shingles and green awnings will be infused with a new touch of Italian luxury paired with signature culinary excellence.

Under the ownership of LDV Hospitality, in partnership with Irwin Simon and Mayank Dwivedi of ISMD, The Maidstone Hotel will offer a rejuvenated experience, boasting an exquisite food and beverage program. Crafted by the esteemed Chef Jorge Espinoza, renowned for his tenure at Scarpetta, the menu will evoke quintessential moments of ‘Italian Summer’ in the Hamptons.  Highlights include Spaghetti alla Nerano with fried zucchini and provolone and Squid Ink Linguine with crabmeat, uni, calabrian chili, and lemon. An aperitivo hour will be offered daily from 3pm-6pm in the garden.

Irwin Simon, Managing Director of ISMD, said, “As a long-time admirer of the Hamptons’ unique blend of elegance and tranquility, acquiring The Maidstone Hotel has been a deeply personal endeavor for me. My family’s ties to this cherished community run deep, and it’s an honor to play a part in preserving its rich heritage in partnership with LDV Hospitality. Together, we aim to create a haven where guests can immerse themselves in the timeless charm.:”

On achieving his dream of transitioning into the hotel space, John Meadow, CEO of LDV Hospitality said, “I’ve witnessed firsthand the allure and charm of The Maidstone Hotel as it has been a beacon in the community for many years. In partnership with ISMD, we look forward to bringing new memories to this idyllic retreat.  We partner with some of the most prestigious hotels around the world and are excited to evolve into this next phase as a company.”

Designer Poonam Khanna of  The Unionworks will lead a cosmetic refresh of the entire hotel with guest room interiors rooted in a natural palette of earthy sand tones, warm amber and soft peaches. Greens and blues inspired by the ocean and sky will accent the updated public spaces. Luxury touches such as Frette Linens, Santa Maria Novella amenities, as well as small details to the upholstery and furnishings will add subtle variations to each room.

The Maidstone Hotel signals a new chapter for LDV Hospitality as it continues to expand its portfolio of properties beyond food and beverage programming. The Maidstone Hotel will offer a harmonious fusion of luxury, and innovation, combined with the unmistakable LDV touch.
