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.

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.

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.

Popular among student travelers and Columbia-visiting academics, this upper-Broadway hotel offers a surprising amount of comfort and style for an affordable price.

The rooms at the Sherwood Inn—a former stagecoach stop—have lake views and fireplaces.

The city’s second property from Hyatt’s boutique brand—located directly across from the New York Public Library—has 184 loftlike guest rooms with 12-foot floor-to-ceiling windows and muted interiors by designer Tony Chi.

Located in midtown Manhattan just steps from Times Square and Broadway, Hotel Edison was built in 1931 in the same art deco style as Radio City Music Hall. Today, the former depression era hotel welcomes guests into its guest rooms, which offer a neutral palate in shades of tan and brown.

Although nonbibliophiles may find it a tad precious, it's hard not to be charmed by the schtick of this bookish hotel.

Situated behind a gated courtyard and an arched colonnade, the New York Palace is a luxury hotel located directly across the street from St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

The property is a nice change from the area’s chain hotels: B&B accommodations, art glass, and antiques in an 1890 Greek Revival mansion in a leafy residential neighborhood.

With 187 rooms and 23 suites, the Hotel Gansevoort is a stylish resort located in New York’s Meatpacking District.
