About New York
All our New York collections:
New York, New York, a wonderful town, the Bronx is up and the Battery's down. This is a factual, yet brief, introduction to one of the world's best known cities. Gloried in many a film, New York doesn't have an equivalent. Once she welcomed in the poor and huddled masses and the city is now a celebration of their triumphs. Here anyone is welcome to be themselves and many of the best places to stay in New York reflect this philosophy.
The grid may seem simple enough to navigate from the maps, but New York is a hive of industry, and hives have all sorts of ins and outs that you only see once you're in the thick of things. So choosing where to stay can be a complicated part of planning your visit.
What not to miss:
- Join the crowds at atmospheric Times Square.
- Enjoy panoramic views from the observatory deck in the iconic Empire State Building.
- View famed works at the Museum of Modern Art.
- Make a trip to the Statue of Liberty and neighbouring Ellis Island.
- Stroll through New York's renowned Central Park.
- Catch a performance on Broadway.
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
- 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 from nature, the lobby is well dressed and the staff will all know you by name after your first nights stay.
- The Surrey, a grand and gracious 5* Upper East Side Manhattan hotel is not one to be outdone. The Art Deco inspired lobby features many unique modern art pieces. With a private roof garden, a decadent bar and surrounded by some of the city's best restaurant - this really is New York City Luxury.
For Central New York - Times Square
- Vibrant and friendly, the Casablanca Hotel is one of the best places to stay 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 the location, means that the 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 is Matilda.
- City Club Hotel is an impressive former gentleman's club preserving the glamour and style as a hotel just minutes from Times Square and Broadway.
- Westhouse Hotel is an exclusive hotel in a fantastic location a few minutes from Times Square and Central Park. Channeling rich 1920s glamour with a touch of Art Deco, it boasts crystal chandeliers and polished wooden floors.
- Room Mate Grace is a funky and lively hotel just minutes from Times Square with a colourfully illuminated indoor pool with underwater music and a swim-up bar.
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, 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. If you are 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. 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 are starting the day with the city spread out beneath you.
- Bryant Park Hotel is a black and gold gothic landmark overlooking Byrant Park in the heart of Soho. Light, sharp rooms with luxury linens, bathtubs and city views. KOI sushi restaurant is popular with locals and the bar is a lively start to the night.
- This achingly chic hotel in Manhattan’s SoHo/Nolita district attracts celebrities and design addicts alike with its cool interiors by Kit Kemp. Despite the enviable location Crosby Street Hotel is on a quiet street so you can leave the city chaos behind.
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 renovated with clever, innovative design - think sharp shiny edges in warm colours - it has an excellent spa.
- Paper Factory is a quirky and unusual hotel in Long Island city styled as industrial-chic; a modern renovation of a paper factory. The spacious rooms pay homage to the historic industrial architecture whilst featuring upscale and antique furnishings.
- Archer New York blends downtown-style brick walls and industrial spaces with uptown decorative influences, located in the Garment District just a mile from Times Square. The modern rooms are chic and delicately decorated and the rooftop bar Spyglass offers irresistible panoramic views.
- citizenM New York offers the usual luxury for less that you've come to expect from their brand. Compact rooms boast wall to wall windows, and there's a rooftop bar for panoramic views across the city.
For an eco stay
- 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge offers contemporary designer accommodation, right beside the famed Brooklyn Bridge Promenade. Think chic wooden furnishings, warm hues and superb views of the area. Kick back and enjoy a movie in the screening room after a busy day sightseeing. A perfect Eco break!
For an apartment or flat
- For those keen on some additional privacy, explore the private apartment options available at our online partner Booking.com.
- Fly to any of the three well connected airports: John F. Kennedy International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and LaGuardia Airport (serving domestic flights).
- New York is a year round destination with four distinct seasons. Summers get very hot, winters extremely cold, while spring and autumn are moderate. Perhaps Autumn or 'fall' is one of the most beautiful seasons.
- If you plan to hire a car, we recommend you visit our online partner Rentalcars.
