Stay Close to the Action at These 9 Best Hotels in New York City
Centrally located in Manhattan (and only two blocks away from Central Park), the Lowell Hotel sits atop an intimate list of highly rated luxury hotels in the city. Conde Nast Traveler gave it a spot on their Gold List this year after a $25 million upgrade and the addition of Majorelle, a Mediterranean-influenced French restaurant headed up by restaurateur, Charles Masson.
In addition to the gourmet food, you can also enjoy afternoon tea in their Pembroke Room.
As luxury rooms go, the Lowell leads the pack with wood burning fireplaces, heated oak floors and landscaped terraces. A variety of Apple products are available in-room upon request and there’s even a special pet menu for room service orders, making this one of the top boutique hotels in New York.
To really drive home the exclusivity appeal, the Lowell’s concierge service is rumored to have the power to get you VIP access to events and tickets to sold out shows. Rates start at around $700 per night.

One of the world’s most famous hotels, The Plaza Hotel in New York City has hosted celebrities, diplomats and royalty throughout its 110-year history. Just off of Fifth Avenue and Central Park, the Plaza is smack dab in the middle of the most luxurious neighborhood in the city.
As such, it’s no surprise that they have some of the best suites in the world, with the largest coming in around 4,500 square feet. Some suites are designed by Hollywood costume designers and fashion designers, and most also feature 24-karat gold fixtures in their bathrooms.
Aside from their large rooms and views of Central Park, The Plaza also has a variety of iconic dining options from their champagne bar to the Todd English Food Hall. After you’ve eaten your fill of caviar and foie gras, work it off in their onsite fitness club or have equipment and apparel delivered to your room for a private workout.
