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.

The rentals are simple and summery, like the town of Clayton itself, with screened porches and a view of the St. Lawrence River.

Formerly the headquarters of the National Maritime Union, this Chelsea boutique hotel is housed in a 12-story white building lined with row after row of porthole windows.

The 10 motel-style rooms are outfitted with crisp white linens and flat-screen televisions.

With its location in the Upper East Side, a few blocks from the East River, this Courtyard by Marriott offers rooms that are quieter andmore spacious than in downtown, owing to its residential location.The hotel makes a convenient base for exploring Central Park, Columbia University, and Yankee S

The low-key Tudor-style hotel has beachy accents like sisal carpets and wood-burning fireplaces.

The sight (and, it must be said, smell) of carriage horses greets you as you enter this 33-story, limestone-fronted building on the southern edge of Central Park. Transformed from the St.

Like your meals, lodging is simple but memorable—there’s no TV, and your light is by propane lam, but every unit has a lake view. Far from feeling deprived, you’ll be transported, especially when the rain dances on the roof of your cabin.
