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. Take the Harlem Flophouse, for example: a small boutique hotel set in an 1890s townhouse with vintage wallpapered rooms named after jazz greats like Duke Ellington and Thelonius Monk. Or for a taste of old New York glamour, there’s the Carlyle, an Upper East Side icon with Louis XVI-style furnishings and black-marble bathrooms. Even the more familiar hotel staples, like Sofitel, Marriott, Hyatt, and Hilton—often set in center-of-it-all spots like Times Square and the Financial District—offer their own particular slice of the New York scene.
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.
