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 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.

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.

Set in a landmark 17-story Beaux-Arts-style building on Madison Avenue and 76th Street, the 190-room hotel reopened in 2009 following a $60 million top-down restoration led by award-winning designer Lauren Rottet. The result?

The cozy Victorian hotel on Signal Hill was built in 1912 and overlooks Mirror Lake. There are 10 tidy, affordable rooms and a stellar restaurant that draws on the region's bounty.

Since opening in late 2006, the London may have received less press than its Gordon Ramsay-run in-house restaurant, but this elegant, all-suite hotel justly deserves its own following.

The quirky property in Rhinebeck has been hosting guests since 1766 (yes, George Washington slept here), and though modernized, it retains its original plank floors and oak beams.

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.

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.
