As an ever-trendy tourist destination, New York City has a diverse collection of hotels catering to every traveler’s taste. From luxurious hotels to cool boutiques, you’ll be spoiled for choice when trying to decide where to go here. Learn more about the best hotels in New York City.
Here are just a few of our favorite hotels in New York City.
The Standard, High Line
Fans of retro-futurism are going to absolutely adore The Standard. Its 1950’s inspired lighting and furniture are contained in a big block of concrete that looks like it’s floating above the High Line – it could double as George Jetson’s pad!
The cool design isn’t all there is to the Standard! The gym on the seventeenth floor is a must-visit even if you don’t like working out; it has the most spectacular views of the Hudson River. It also has a disco-inspired bar called Le Bain on the penthouse, where you can catch even better views of the city.
This is easily one of the most famous of New York’s hotels, especially since it has been featured in so many movies! 19 stories high, this landmark stands on the corner of Fifth Avenue and Central Park South and is the final word on elegant and sophisticated rooms. Every room comes furnished with chandeliers and period furniture, as well as iPads and gold-plated faucets.
And of course, the Plaza has butler service every hour of the day. Don’t forget to marvel at the décor in the Palm Court during breakfast time!
Hotel 50 Bowery NYC
Hotel 50 Bowery is located in the heart of Chinatown and does an admirable job of reflecting the identity of the ever-shifting neighborhood. And simultaneously, it offers every single amenity the modern guest would want.
The guest rooms contain gorgeous original artwork, huge windows, hardwood floors, free Wi-Fi, honor bars, and the fluffiest white bathrobes majestically embroidered with Chinese dragons on the back. You’ll get to eat some of the best Asian-American cuisine at Chef Dale Talde’s Rice & Gold restaurant, and enjoy the soaring views of Manhattan from The Crown, the rooftop bar on the 21st floor.
The Greenwich Hotel
Subtle opulence: that’s the theme of the Greenwich Hotel. Moroccan tiles, Tibetan silk rugs, English leather settees, and Carrara marble from Italy – it could feel like a lot under a less restrained hand. At the Greenwich, however, they’re thrown together with a studied casualness that makes the place as snug as it’s grand.
Small rooms with larger-than-life personalities – that’s the design philosophy of Arlo NoMad. Its 249 rooms may be no larger than 150 square feet, but they do so much with that space! Each room has 42 inch LED TVs, as well as mini-fridges, free Wi-Fi, and floor-to-ceiling windows that make for an open and spacious atmosphere.
It also has a bar on the second floor, as well as a restaurant, a bodega, and a second bar on the rooftop. Add some chic boho décor, and you have yourself a hotel with some real character.
