Hotels in New York City

Nowhere is New York City's rich history more visible than in the landmark Beaux-Arts architecture of its finest hotels. With their arched windows, deep cornices, and bold sculptural supporting consoles, these breathtaking, landmark-quality buildings reflect the neoclassical architectural style taught at the Ecoles des Beaux-Arts in Paris.

Three fine examples of the Beaux-Arts movement are The Dylan, The Mark, and The W. Built in 1911, The Dylan Hotel New York is a 3.5-star hotel with an acclaimed on-site restaurant and fitness center. A few blocks north, in Manhattan's Upper East Side, you'll find The Mark Hotel NYC, a 5-star luxury hotel with a stunning 1927 Beaux-Art facade. Venture down south to Gramercy Park and you'll find The W Hotel Union Square, which is housed in the 1911 Guardian Life Beaux-Arts Building.

Along with many other hotels in NYC, these majestic Beaux-Arts structures make the Big Apple what it is today.
