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.

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.

One of two lakeside inns in buildings owned by Wells College, the 1858 former residence was reimagined, top to toe, by American Girl doll creator Pleasant Rowland—part of a one-woman beautification campaign in a historic Finger Lakes town.

For families or extended stay travelers, Herrick Guest Suites one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartment suites provide the essential comforts of home.

One of the few independent hotels left in Manhattan, this 142-room bijou is cherished by Europeans (and savvy celebrities) for its intimacy and attentive staff.

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.

To get a true sense of the brand of luxury the Roosevelt Hotel has exemplified since opening in 1924, guests needn't venture past the lobby, where the gilded molding and columns, domed ceiling, Tiffany crystal chandelier, rich draperies, and balconies suggest a confident, dignified air.

A cross between a bed and breakfast (except there’s no breakfast) and a hostel, East Village Bed & Coffee is the creation of Anne Edris. Since Edris has lived in the neighborhood for nearly 24 years, she provides a wealth of information for out-of-towners on the best local dives and sights.

Set at the southern tip of Manhattan, this Ritz may be the only hotel in the city where you'll wake to the morning cries of seagulls.

Formerly Jumeirah Essex House

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