10 best luxury hotels in New York
Fortunately the luxury hotels in Manhattan are among the best in the world,
offering the finest interiors from renowned designers, chic in-room amenities, attentive service, and glorious city views (which is often the number one selling point for a hotel).
1. Best for scene: New York Edition
The sexy Edition brand, created by Studio 54 legend-turned-boutique-hotelier Ian Schrager in partnership with Marriott Hotels,
caters to sophisticated travellers who are after high design and exciting nightlife, rolled up in five-star service.
2. Best for design inspiration: The Crosby Street Hotel
The thoroughly British Firmdale Hotels first crossed the pond in 2009 to open the Crosby Street Hotel in Soho
(their second NYC hotel, The Whitby, opened in 2017).
3. Best for artists: The Mercer
One of the original boutique hotels in Soho, The Mercer has retained its exclusive je nai se quoi even after 20 years.
4.Best for families: The Surrey
One block from Central Park and its popular Alice in Wonderland bronze statue, the hotel’s 190 elegant rooms feature a mix of king,
queen and twin beds, the latter being a rare commodity in New York, but essential for families.
5. Best for privacy: NoMad Hotel
Meant to be a fresh take on the grand European hotels of yore, the NoMad sometimes feels as if it’s from another century entirely,
or at least from a time before we were all obsessed with handheld devices.
6. Best for power players: Park Hyatt New York
The Park Hyatt New York, located in Midtown across from Carnegie Hall and a block from Central Park, wowed even the most jaded of hotel observers when it opened in 2014, largely because of its gorgeous rooms (designed by Yabu Pushelberg) and its distinctive ribbon facade architecture (envisioned by Christian doe Portzamparc.)
7. Best for movie stars: The Greenwich Hotel
In the heart of Tribeca, the Greenwich has a bona fide film star pedigree – one of its owners is none other than Robert De Niro.
8. Best for pampering: St. Regis New York
Every room here comes with the service of a dedicated maitre d’étages – butler to you and me.
Guests can also be ferried about town in a Bentley within a 10-block radius of the hotel.
9. Best for Instagram: Baccarat New York
At the street-level entrance, across from the Museum of Modern Art, there’s a wall adorned with 1,800 Baccarat “Harcourt” stemware, all lit up by LED lights in the shape of the Baccarat “B.” Upstairs in the Grand Salon, just beyond check-in, is a delicate 64-armed chandelier that hangs over an assortment of high-backed banquettes and mirrored tables,
all topped off with some form of Baccarat crystal.
10. Best for wellness: The Mark
Guests booking the new Wellness package will receive a custom Mark Hotel yoga mat with matching ear buds,
a facial treatment, a personal training session with Dan Flores or a private yoga class, as well as fresh juice and vegan muffins at check-in from the hotel’s Jean-Georges Vongericten restaurant.
