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 brick-and-steel Nu Hotel has 93 minimalist-chic rooms appointed with faux-sheepskin rugs, gauzy white curtains, and Brooklyn-centric artwork.

This striking, 46-story property is within walking distance of Lower Manhattan neighborhoods such as Greenwich Village and SoHo. Public spaces are dramatically designed: the two-story lobby has Venetian-plaster columns and discreet leather seating.

This charming little B&B in an 1855 Gothic Revival house on Van Cleef Lake features Victorian antiques and full sit-down breakfasts.

Built in 1911 for real estate maven Robert Goelet on a hill overlooking Glenmere Lake, the pink Tuscan-style mansion was never intended to blend in with its 3,000 wooded acres but rather to make a grand statement.

You're on your own at this hip approximation of a Victorian pied-à-terre, but that's one of its selling points. Checking in means ringing the buzzer so a staff member can come up from the basement and hand you the key.

The Pierre, A Taj Hotel, New York refreshes the luxury and exclusivity that have long defined the hotel.

Hoteliers Sean MacPherson and Eric Goode—the team behind New York’s Maritime Hotel—are breathing new life into Manhattan’s once-desolate Bowery with their 135-room Bowery Hotel.

Located in the Upper West Side between Central Park and Columbus Avenue, the 16-story Hotel Excelsior overlooks the verdant park, the Hayden Planetarium, and the Museum of Natural History, which is only a five-minute walk away.

Part private members’ club and part hotel, the Soho House is located inside a repurposed warehouse building in New York’s Meatpacking District.

After a five-year renovation, the 1854 Rhinecliff Hotel is once again a bustling hub. The nine rooms have balconies that seem to float over the Hudson. Fair warning: they also hover over Rhinecliff Station’s railroad tracks, so be prepared to hear the whistle blow.

An updated homestead from the 17th century set on 70 lush green acres along the banks of the Hudson River, Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa has 18 individualized guest rooms and suites, all with fireplaces and most with whirlpool baths and views of the Hudson Valley.

Set on the Lower East Side's main thoroughfare, this 22-room brick guesthouse—originally built as a tenement in 1879—perfectly embodies its quirky, eclectic home neighborhood.
