The best hotels in NYC are as diverse as the city. Whether you’re craving five stars or a funky boutique hotel, T+L’s guide to where to stay in New York has you covered.

More than just a place to sleep in between shopping and museum outings, New York City hotels can be an experience in and of themselves, giving travellers insight into the personality of a particular corner of the city.

Want to go all out? Book a room at the Baccarat, the Four Seasons, or the Peninsula—a stay might cost thousands a night, but you’ll be rewarded with extravagant accommodations and incredible views over Park Avenue or Central Park. Other T+L editor favorites highlighted in the guide include the St. Regis, a Beaux-Arts beauty that houses the bar that invented the Bloody Mary; the Ritz-Carlton, which overlooks Central Park and provides outrageously luxurious amenities like a “tech butler,” a gemologist, and an award-winning concierge team; and the Mandarin Oriental, with its sleek, modern design, opulent Asian-inspired décor, and a 14,500-square-foot spa that offers treatments like ayurvedic scalp stimulation and Thai yoga massage.

No matter where in the five boroughs you’re heading, the T+L guide will help you find a hotel as singular as the city itself.
