Hotels in Manhattan

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

A cross between a bed and breakfast (except there’s no breakfast) and a hostel, East Village Bed & Coffee is the creation of Anne Edris. Since Edris has lived in the neighborhood for nearly 24 years, she provides a wealth of information for out-of-towners on the best local dives and sights.

Attracting a steady flow of celebrities (like its Meatpacking District sibling), this NoMad (north of Madison Square Park) hotel is within easy walking distance of Union Square, the Theatre District, and the Empire State Building. Throughout the 249-room hotel, décor makes a statement.

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.

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.

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

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

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