Hotels in New York
This chic, glass-walled hotel abuts Williamsburg’s popular McCarren Park.
In a former factory by the waterfront of Willamsburg’s north side, this boutique property is hot as much for its 70 rooms as it is for its always-packed rooftop bar, The Ides, and it’s main floor restaurant, Reynard.
People are still buzzing about the “new Brooklyn,” where each artisan establishment seems to out-craft the next. And the Wythe—near the Williamsburg riverfront—has become the crown jewel of the borough’s renaissance.
mar 17Stylish 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.
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).
Who would stock a Manhattan mini-bar with a harmonica and furnish a bathroom with denim bathrobes?
The 11 rooms mix old and new, as in flat-screen TV’s atop antique bureaus. Pub grub and a carved 19-foot-long bar make the downstairs tavern a neighborhood hot spot.
On the western corner of New York's Shelter Island, the Pridwin offers guests panoramic views of Southold Bay and easy access to Crescent Beach. Some of the rooms and cottages come with water views, while others have fireplaces.
Actor-entrepreneur Robert De Niro opened this hotel in 2008, but the corner building, erected on an empty parking lot, looks as if it’s been there since the turn of the century—the truth hidden by its hand-distressed brick façade.
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.
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.
The cozy Victorian hotel on Signal Hill was built in 1912 and overlooks Mirror Lake. There are 10 tidy, affordable rooms and a stellar restaurant that draws on the region's bounty.
