The Knickerbocker was ranked as the #5 hotel in the US, the number #3 hotel in New York
WestHouse was named the #6 property in New York City.
No. 1: The Surrey
It’s hard to imagine a better-situated hotel in New York City than The Surrey—if you’d rather feel like an Upper East Side resident than a Times Square tourist, at least. The Relais & Châteaux property is located in one of New York’s most pedigreed neighborhoods, a block from Central Park and around the corner from the high-end shops of Madison Avenue. Guest rooms have Frette sheets, as well as a bar with bottles of top-shelf liquor—you can even request a bartender to shake up a bedside drink. Readers raved about the “quiet elegance” as well as the rooftop garden, a glorious perch in summer.
