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.

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 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’s newest addition to his mini TriBeCa empire is his most inviting yet.

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.

Taking its cue from the Ikea school of cheap chic, this youth-oriented urban hotel isn't for everyone. But its 347 tiny, clean, cleverly designed rooms—very mod, with stainless-steel sinks and Eames-inspired desk chairs—are a blessing for anyone visiting New York on a budget.

Situated in the 1926 Taft Hotel building, a 22-story Spanish Renaissance—style structure on Seventh Avenue, this Italian-inspired hotel is just a four-minute walk from Times Square.

Opt for the Mother & Daughter Retreat Package, which includes 75-minute facials, manicures, pedicures, and a two-night stay at this country lodge on a private Lake George island with a Donald Ross golf course.

Hidden in the dunes beyond the center of Amagansett, the property isn’t the height of glamour, but it has steps leading right onto a private beach. 

The property was built in 1883 and underwent a restoration in 2010. The inn’s bar and restaurant feel almost Southern, like something out of a Mark Twain Mississippi tale. Only the sumptuous murals of nearby inlets done in the lush and romantic Hudson River School style remind you where you are.

While the Jane, designed by Sean MacPherson (the Bowery Hotel, the Maritime Hotel), is romantic in theory—an old riverfront building with tiny rooms modeled after European train sleeper cars—keep in mind that a New York hotel with starting rates in the double digits comes with drawbacks.

Recently acquired by the London-based St. Giles hotel group, The Court and The Tuscany are located in the peaceful Murray Hill neighborhood, yet are within walking distance of some of New York’s best destinations.

The hotel also rents out apartments that run from $3,500 to $12,000 per month.

A modern interpretation of a British gentlemen’s club, the Blakely hotel is situated in midtown west, just a short walk from Central Park and Broadway. Inside, the lobby is furnished with Persian rugs, worn leather couches, and bookshelves lined with Charles Dickens classics.

Situated within a mile and a half of Central Park, Times Square, and the theatre district, this 17-story hotel is ideal for visitors seeking a convenient location and affordable rates. The 597 rooms are basic but clean and comfortable, and all of them are large by New York standards.
