  • 4.8 Crosby Street Hotel NYC

    Crosby Street Hotel, New York

    Fodors

    “Each of the rooms is individually designed, with fun patterns and colors, big warehouse style windows, and a cozy, residential feel. The location is smack in the heart of the action in SoHo.”

    Featured as Fodor’s Choice in New York.

  • 4.5 Nomad Hotel NYC

    The NoMad Hotel, New York

    New York Times

    “Conceived by Andrew Zobler, developer of the nearby Ace Hotel, the NoMad is the Ace for grown-ups. The hotel stands out for its bohemian glamour, from the laser-sharp but friendly service to the opulent yet intimate interiors.”

  • 4.6 The Bowery Hotel NYC

    The Bowery Hotel, New York

    CNN

    “Lying right at the intersection of hip and elegant, The Bowery Hotel is appointed with luxurious old world refinements and décor while retaining a vibe that’s lively and modern. Factory windows offer 360-degrees of the city.”

  • 4.4 Mandarin Oriental New York

    Hotel Mandarin Oriental, New York

    CNN

    “Located atop one of the twin sentries comprising the Time Warner Center, the five-star Mandarin Oriental enjoys unobstructed views through its floor-to-ceiling windows of the Hudson River, Central Park and Brooklyn.”

  • 4.6 CitizenM New York

    Hotel CitizenM Times Square, New York

    New York Times

    “The trendy but affordable, limited-service hotel offers self-check-in at welcome kiosks in the art-filled double-height lobby staffed by friendly hosts. Fresh, funky and affordable, citizenM is a modern haven in touristy Times Square. Its D.I.Y. ethos, like picking your room art, offers efficiency with flair.”

  • 4.5 Refinery Hotel NYC

    Refinery Hotel Manhattan, New York

    New York Times

    “With its hat factory history, good location, upscale finish and an eager-to-please staff, the Refinery is a definite draw and is an ideal place for travelers who are looking to be near the city’s major tourist attractions. It lacked the polish of other well-established luxury properties in town, but that may improve over time, and its charm more than makes up for it.”

  • 4.3 Gramercy Park Hotel NYC

    Gramercy Park Hotel, New York

    Frommers

    “One of the most coveted status symbols in NYC is a key to Gramercy Park. Stay here, though, and you can join the elite, in more ways than just park access. Few hotels in the city, or anywhere for that matter, are as truly luxurious or as riotously artistic.”

    Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in New York.

  • 4.4 Andaz Wall Street NYC

    Hotel Andaz Wall Street, New York

    Frommers

    “The Andaz is a wonderfully chic haven from the bustle of Manhattan. Designed by David Rockwell with a comfy, loft sensibility, the rooms are larger-than-the-norm, with floor-to-ceiling windows that let in scads of light (but are soundproofed for serenity).”

    Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in New York.

  • 4.3 High Line Hotel NYC

    The High Line Hotel, New York

    Frommers

    “Very few NYC hotels deserve the high price tag they wear. This one just may. Its interior is as grand, though delightfully quirky, with rooms that look like they could have been inhabited by a Gatsby type in the 1920s.”

    Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in New York.

  • 4.5 Ludlow Hotel New York

    The Ludlow Hotel, New York

    New York Times

    “The Ludlow is in the heart of the Lower East Side, one of the city’s most desirable areas for the hip and youthful set. The hotel wins high marks for its neighborhood feel and is a smart choice for travelers looking for an authentic sense of place away from the crowds.”

  • 4.4 Marlton Hotel NYC

    The Marlton Hotel, New York

    New York Times

    “During its bohemian heyday, scores of artists and writers stayed at the Marlton House, built in 1900 and beloved for its prime Greenwich Village location and cheap rates. The Marlton is a snug and affordable alternative to larger hotels, and it’s a must for anyone seeking to replicate downtown living.”

  • 4.1 Standard High Line NYC

    Hotel The Standard High Line, New York

    CNN

    “If aesthetics are a requisite, The Standard, High Line — situated directly above a stretch of old elevated railway now known as High Line Park — is a best of New York City landmark in Manhattan’s most model-intensive neighborhood.”

  • 4.6 Made Hotel NYC

    Made Hotel, New York

    CN Traveler

    “This hotel is totally worth the money and is a great deal for a Manhattan hotel. The rooms are high-end in all the right ways (great amenities, quality, linens, and covetable bathroom fixtures) but not at all over-the-top.”

    Featured in CN Traveler’s 2018 Hot List.

  • 4.6 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge

    1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, New York

    CN Traveler

    “Few things are as ‘New York’ as the 1 Hotel’s location at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge. Aside from that, it’s a thoughtfully designed, supremely attractive place to call home for as long you’re a guest here. Plus, it has one of the prettiest farm-to-table restaurants in all of Brooklyn: the Osprey.”

    Featured in CN Traveler’s 2018 Hot List.

  • 4.6 Baccarat NYC

    Baccarat Hotel & Residences, New York

    CN Traveler

    “Unabashed opulence is what you get as soon as you step into the lobby, there are about 15,000 pieces of the brand’s crystal throughout, including glassware and chandeliers. Arrangements of fresh red roses everywhere add a touch of color.”

    Featured in CN Traveler’s 2020 Gold List.

  • 4.8 Whitby NYC

    The Whitby Hotel, New York

    CN Traveler

    “It’s like an English summer garden come to life in hotel form. A welcome addition to staid Midtown, it’s that rare find that is both family-friendly and sophisticated. A gorgeous hotel two blocks from Central Park.”

    Featured in CN Traveler’s 2020 Gold List.

  • 4.8 Lowell Hotel NYC

    The Lowell Hotel, New York

    CN Traveler

    “The Lowell, on the Upper East Side, reopened in 2017 after a three-year renovation. Its 74 rooms got a refresh, but the important touches stayed the same: wood-burning fireplaces, grisaille wallpaper in the lobby, tasseled key fobs.”

    Featured in CN Traveler’s 2020 Gold List.

  • 4.7 Greenwich Hotel NYC

    The Greenwich Hotel, New York

    CN Traveler

    “In an era of the ever-more-exclusive members’ club luring the black-card-carrying wolf pack, Robert De Niro’s hotel makes privacy feel refreshingly effortless. It creates the sensation of stepping into the actor’s own salon.”

    Featured in CN Traveler’s 2020 Gold List.

  • 4.4 Freehand NYC

    Freehand Hotel, New York

    CN Traveler

    “Better to book something that’s at least clean, comfortable, and strategically located, and spend the extra cash on that restaurant everyone has been posting about. Freehand takes this compromise and somehow manages to make it feel sexy and stylish. Rooms are basic but brightened up with artworks that sometimes snake across the walls and ceilings.”

    Featured in CN Traveler’s Best New Hotels of 2019.

  • 4.1 Pod 39 NYC

    Hotel Pod 39, New York

    CNN

    “Rooms at the Murray Hill location all feature private bathrooms, along with free Wi-Fi and an emphasis on communal space typified by the Pod 39’s rooftop lounge. The hotel’s perks are few but if you want hip and affordable, you won’t likely do better.”

  • 4.4 Edge Hotel NYC

    The Edge Hotel Washington Heights, New York

    New York Times

    “The Edge Hotel, on a leafy block of Washington Heights at 514 West 168 Street, is just steps away from the subway. A rare boutique hotel in the neighborhood, the modern 54-room property offers complimentary continental breakfast.”

    Shortlisted in New York Times’ 36 Hours in New York City.

  • 4.0 Hotel Wales NYC

    Hotel Wales, New York

    New York Times

    “The Hotel Wales, at 1295 Madison Avenue on the Upper East Side, is within walking distance of East Harlem. The hotel has 89 rooms and suites and a rooftop patio with views of Central Park.”

    Shortlisted in New York Times’ 36 Hours in New York City.

  • 4.2 Paper Factory NYC

    Paper Factory Hotel Queens, New York

    New York Times

    “This 123-room hotel in Long Island City, Queens, draws its name from its previous life as a paper factory. A short trip from Midtown Manhattan, the Paper Factory offers an exceptionally friendly staff and a more sophisticated experience than other Queens properties.”

  • 4.4 11 Howard Hotel NYC

    11 Howard Hotel, New York

    New York Times

    “With its enviable location in a fashionable part of town, efficient and personable service and eye-catching design combined with its Starwood partnership, 11 Howard is a solid choice for both leisure and business travelers.”

  • 4.5 The William New York

    Aparthotel The William, New York

    CNN

    “Though each suite has all the amenities that you’d find at home — kitchens, living spaces, work areas, and in some cases, private terraces — their shockingly bright color palette, quirky mid-century furniture and bold abstract art make it a stay you won’t soon forget.”
