Here are some of the city's hottest holiday addresses: the Hotel Guru's pick of the best places to stay in New York starting from 'Up' top of Manhattan and heading 'Down'.
The Best of Historic Harlem
- The Harlem Flophouse might not sound like the kind of place your Mum would want you to stay; but Harlem's star is on the rise at the moment, and this bit of New York is arty, vibrant and historic. The Flophouse itself is a lovingly restored brownstone building, complete with wonderful original features.
For the museums - Central Park & the Upper East Side
- If you want aristocratic elegance on Madison Avenue, the Hotel Wales is defintiely one of the best places to stay in New York. A few steps from the park, and right by the museum district, this is one of those traditional luxury hotels where the linens are better than the ones you have at home.
- Long an uptown landmark, The Mark, value adds to its park side location with an award winning restaurant and a world renowned hairdresser. 'Stylish' doesn't do the decor by Jacques Grange enough credit.
- The Lowell Hotel is perfect if you're looking for classic, intimate luxury. The bathrooms are marble, the colour pallet draws only from nature, the lobby is well dressed and the staff will all know you by name after your first nights stay.
For Central New York - Times Square
- Vibrant and friendly, the Casablanca Hotel is one of the best places to stay in New York if you want to be right in the heart of things. The decor, as you may have guessed, is Moroccan, with beautiful mosaics, tapestries ad paintings, impressive rugs and even ornate ceiling fans. These unique, careful touches, and the fact that it's incredibly well priced for its location, mean that its 48 rooms are often booked solid with repeat guests.
- The Algonquin Hotel opened its doors in 1902, and has been doing a roaring trade ever since. The decor is gorgeous, an antique lover's dream, and they even still have a hotel cat, her name's Matilda.
Highlights of Midtown
Midtown has the Museum of Modern Art, Grand Central Station, the UN, the New York Public Library, the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building and the Rockefeller Centre. Shoppers will know that the Midtown is also where you'll find Fifth Avenue, with Saks, FAO Schwartz and Tiffany & Co.. Bloomingdale's is on Third Ave..
- If you believe 'you gotta have a gimmick', then the Library Hotel may be for you. Their bookish theme is anything but gimmicky though, in addition to a well stocked reading room there's also a writer's den and poetry garden, and the rooms all have individual literary themes.
- The Hotel Elysee is one of those addresses forever associated with literary greats and fading movie stars. This is the hotel Tennessee Williams moved into to live out his last years, a place of low-key elegance and comfort on demand. Built in the 20s the hotel has been renovated, but it's still every inch an old fashioned hotel.
For fashionistas - Gramercy Park
- This boho original had art by Andy Warhol and Damien Hirst on the walls of the bar, and in the revamp, the Gramercy Park Hotel has kept these, and other original details, in a style they're calling 'Bohemia reinvented for the 21st Century'.
For Hipsters - SoHo, Tribeca & the Meatpacking District
- These days Soho is pretty cool. And if you're looking for a cool place to lay your head in a cool place, then you'll want the SoHo Grand Hotel. The rooms are comfortable, and relatively modest, but the public spaces are beautifully imaginative. There's colour, there's chic design, and in the Grand Lounge there's live music.
- Jostling for cool with the Soho Grand is the Tribeca Grand. Like competitive sisters they fight to have the hippest fashionistas in their bars and musicians at their live music events. And the Tribeca Grand can also add filmmakers using its in-house cinema.
- With panoramic views over the Hudson River, The Standard, an Andre Balaza hotel, is one of the best places to stay in New York if you're after detail and atmosphere. Cool, stark and perfectly proportioned to take best advantage of the location, this is a great place from which to experience New York. You're starting the day with the city spread out beneath you.
For something unusual - Wall Street
- The Andaz, Wall Street, is the only hotel on Wall Street. It may also be the only hotel in the world which used to be a Barclays Bank. They've done it over with clever, innovative design - think sharp shiny edges, but in warm colours - and it has an excellent spa.
