Hotels in New York
From big city luxury hotels to countryside inns and lakeside lodges, the best New York hotels reflect their settings, whether you're sitting on a porch swing listening to the sounds of nature, or stepping out onto a busy street from the sleek lobby of a boutique hotel. Here are some highlights among the hotels in New York:
The Quin is located at 57th Street and 6th Avenue, this five-star beauty is a new star in Manhattan with easy access to 5th Avenue shopping, Columbus Circle and Central Park. The NoMad Hotel is a newish hotel in New York City, on 28th St. that embraces Old New York glamour in a rehabbed, turn-of-the-century building. The 168 unique rooms feature clawfoot tubs and atelier-inspired furniture. Aunt Louise’s Lake House is at the waters edge of Skaneateles Lake in the Finger Lakes area, an ultimate lake retreat that was built in 1840. Mohonk Mountain House is a legendary New York hotel that sits on the edge of Lake Mohonk in the Hudson Valley. The Victorian-era palace has been run by the same family since 1869. It’s also considered one of the top spa resorts in the United States.

The three-bedroom guesthouse at Apple Pond Farm comes with a fully equipped kitchen and plenty of toys that will delight the kids. Rooms from $420 (five people, two nights).
The rentals are simple and summery, like the town of Clayton itself, with screened porches and a view of the St. Lawrence River.
Opened in September, 2010, this Modernist addition to SoHo has a permanent art collection and 114 rooms with natural linen bedding and reclaimed-wood floors. We love wall-size murals by area artists.
Most people don't think of midtown Manhattan as a place to chill out—but don't tell the Shoreham, a 177-room hotel that resembles a chic spa retreat.
A high-design (and high-profile) herald of change in a once-grubby neighborhood, the glass-façaded Rivington soars above the old brick tenements of the Lower East Side.
Formerly the headquarters of the National Maritime Union, this Chelsea boutique hotel is housed in a 12-story white building lined with row after row of porthole windows.
The 10 motel-style rooms are outfitted with crisp white linens and flat-screen televisions.
