Hotels in New York

Stylish 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.

Raising the opulence bar—even for a Four Seasons property—this soaring, sleek, I. M. Pei-designed tower epitomizes the cool high life in this coolest of American cities.

This inn’s breakfast has made a name for itself as one of Long Island’s most indulgent; don’t leave without sampling the lobster frittatas and crayfish and andouille étouffe omelettes.

This trendsetting refuge for downtown movers and shakers still has as much élan as it did when it opened in 1996.

Of the same vintage as the neighboring St. Regis (both hotels were built between 1904 and 1905), the Peninsula has retained its decorative Beaux-Arts façade—but inside, old-world grandeur meets streamlined modernity.

Don’t let the frivolous pink façade of Lefèvre House fool you. Behind the Victorian frippery is a sleek, European-style inn. The 1870’s farmhouse in New Paltz, New York, a funky mountain town 90 minutes north of Manhattan, puts a contemporary spin on the entire B&B stereotype.

The old-fashioned inn opened as the Hotel Monaquaga in 1928.

The Millennium UN Plaza Hotel is located at the core of the Big Apple.

Instantly recognizable by the large red “WJ” marking the front entrance, the six-story Washington Jefferson Hotel is located within a 10-minute walk of Times Square, Central Park, and the theatre district.

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.

The 300-room Hampton Inn Manhattan-Times Square North sits just minutes from New York’s Broadway theaters and popular attractions such as Rockefeller Center.
