Hotels in NY

The hotel choices in New York City are almost limitless. Here you’ll find some of the best luxury hotels in the world, including the Ritz Carlton NYC Central Park Hotel and The Mark Hotel New York, along with a few quaint boutique hotels, such as Hotel Bedford. Because Manhattan is relatively small - a modest 22.96 square miles - most popular Manhattan attractions are within walking distance.

Of course, you have plenty of NYC hotels to choose from in the other four boroughs of New York City. Brooklyn and Queens feature a wide variety of budget New York hotels, such as La Quinta Inn Queens. Many of these cheap NYC hotels stand within a mile of New York’s principal airports, LaGuardia and JFK. Like those popular hotels in Manhattan, the hotels in Queens and Brooklyn are extremely varied. Whether you want to be charmed by a small NY boutique hotel or pampered by a large luxury one, you’ll find the experience you’re after.

Famous Hotels in NYC

Many of the best hotels in NY were built over 100 years ago. They share a rich, fascinating history. Walking down almost any given street in New York City, you're bound to pass a landmark Beaux-Arts structure like the NYC Public Library or an Art Deco masterpiece like the Chrysler Building. Here are a few of our favorite historic NYC hotels:

  • Hotel Chelsea: A National Historic Landmark since 1977, Hotel Chelsea was first built in 1883 and has been home to many artistic luminaries, including Bob Dylan, Dylan Thomas, Jimi Hendrix, Allen Ginsberg, Eugene O'Neil, Arthur Miller, Patti Smith, Thomas Wolfe, and The Grateful Dead. It was also the place where legendary punk rock musician Sid Vicious of the Sex Pistols purportedly stabbed his girlfriend, Nancy Spungen, to death. To celebrate the rich history of New York, Hotel Chelsea displays artwork by many of the guests who have stayed at the hotel.
  • Hotel Bedford: Located in Midtown Manhattan, Hotel Bedford boasts a history as rich as the city itself: in the early 20th century, this NYC hotel was home to President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the admired Jazz Age writer F. Scott Fitzgerald, author of The Great Gatsby.

Pet-Friendly New York Hotels

If you plan to tour New York City with a four-legged friend, you’re in luck: many of the best hotels in NY, such as The W Hotel Union Square and The Surrey NYC, feature generous pet accommodations. The former hotel is the only luxury hotel in New York to offer the P.A.W. (Pets Are Welcome) service, which ensures that your cuddly friend will be walked, groomed, and cared for. You can even order a birthday cake for your pampered pet.

Not to be outdone, The Surrey NYC offers its own luxury pet accommodations, including Stella & Chewy's all natural, gourmet dog treats and dinners, Pratesi pet robes, and Lauren Rottet-designed pet beds with Duxiana mattresses. Your pet will love it.

Note that very few hotels in NY will accept exotic animals. You'd best leave your pet tiger at home.
