Hotels in Manhattan

Who would stock a Manhattan mini-bar with a harmonica and furnish a bathroom with denim bathrobes?

One of the few independent hotels left in Manhattan, this 142-room bijou is cherished by Europeans (and savvy celebrities) for its intimacy and attentive staff.

While the Jane, designed by Sean MacPherson (the Bowery Hotel, the Maritime Hotel), is romantic in theory—an old riverfront building with tiny rooms modeled after European train sleeper cars—keep in mind that a New York hotel with starting rates in the double digits comes with drawbacks.

Two adjoining town houses comprise this unassuming Victorian inn, housed in an 1834 brownstone just south of historic Gramercy Park.

The 300-room Hampton Inn Manhattan-Times Square North sits just minutes from New York’s Broadway theaters and popular attractions such as Rockefeller Center.

Let the Marmara Manhattan hotel serve as home base during your stay in New York.

Housed in a 1927 Beaux-Arts building designed by famed architect Emery Roth, this midtown hotel is located within a mile of Times Square. The high-ceilinged lobby has a marble floor and illuminated columns, while the 209 guestrooms are more basic, designed with a good night’s sleep in mind.

Recently acquired by the London-based St. Giles hotel group, The Court and The Tuscany are located in the peaceful Murray Hill neighborhood, yet are within walking distance of some of New York’s best destinations.

Opened July 2010, this 36-story, glass paneled hotel towers above Times Square at 44th Street and 8th Avenue.

Intimate, elegant, and authentically Villagey, the Abingdon occupies two adjacent, refurbished 18th-century Federal town houses in the heart of the West Village.

The Westin New York at Times Square is something of a beacon of calm and respite in one of the world's most bustling landscapes, complete with a beam of light soaring from the atrium to the top of the 45 story building.

The city’s second property from Hyatt’s boutique brand—located directly across from the New York Public Library—has 184 loftlike guest rooms with 12-foot floor-to-ceiling windows and muted interiors by designer Tony Chi.

Stylish and compact, this former members-only club is a well-designed secret among midtown hotels. The 65 smallish rooms have combed-plaster walls, chocolate-marble showers, and Honduran mahogany accents; TV's placed behind two-way mirrors are clever space-savers.

Opened in 2008, the Marcel at Gramercy is located in New York’s Gramercy Park. The mod-inspired hotel features 135 guest rooms furnished with custom beds and leather headboards, animal-print décor, and wireless Internet access.

The 201-room Tribeca Grand is significantly smaller than its SoHo sister property, but you wouldn't know it from the hotel's soaring atrium, eight stories tall and naturally illuminated thanks to translucent skylights.
