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 lakeside Victorian B&B has romantic rooms decked out with Persian rugs and antique beds.

Opened in August 2011, W Hotel’s Lower Manhattan location is on top of the footprint of the old Twin Towers. This 58-story hotel touts all of the amenities that the W brand is known for: signature bed and bathrobes, rainforest shower, and a snack-filled Munchie Box on a whim.

It didn't reinvent New York's downtown hotel scene the way the Soho Grand and the Mercer did—it came later, in 2001—but this hyperdesigned, esoteric 97-room enclave has still managed to up the exclusivity ante in an already exclusive neighborhood.

After a devastating fire in 2005 damaged the original 1882 main house, the hotel reopened a new five-suite 30,000-square-foot main building in August of 2008. The new lodge's style is updated Arts and Crafts with antique local furniture.

This iconic Park Avenue hotel is located in midtown, just two blocks from Central Park. Inside, the high-ceilinged lobby is decorated with marble pillars and oversize armchairs, while the 354 guest rooms contain silk wallpaper, granite-top desks, and doeskin bathrobes.

Originally built as a rectory, this restored Victorian inn with five guest rooms is within walking distance of Warren Street's plentiful antiques shops and boutiques.

Intimate, elegant, and authentically Villagey, the Abingdon occupies two adjacent, refurbished 18th-century Federal town houses in the heart of the West Village.

At Kate’s Lazy Meadow Motel, the quirky personality of Kate Pierson, one of the lead singers for the B-52’s, shines through in every detail.

Rustic, all-suite lodge featuring white-pine beams, cast-iron fireplaces, and well-equipped rooms (full kitchens; private patios) abutting the 6 million acre Adirondack Park.

You’d never use chic to describe the Empire State Building area, packed with souvenir shops and sports bars. But enter the Langham Place Fifth Avenue, and you may be singing a different tune.

The 149-room Kitano hotel could not have a better location for business or leisure travelers. It is on Park Avenue in Manhattan’s Murray Hill neighborhood, close to top sites such as the Empire State Building, Grand Central Station, Broadway, and hundreds of shops and restaurants.

Owned by a team of New York City club impresarios, the Surf Lodge made a splash when it opened its 32-waterfront rooms on Fort Pond in the summer of 2008.

Thirty bright rooms face an onsite pool.

Situated just south of Central Park, Le Parker Meridien hotel juxtaposes classic chic with whimsical details.
