Best Design Projects wants you to have the most pleasing experience, so we suggest you the best luxury hotels in NYC for you to enjoy the most of BDNY 2017.
#1 The Plaza
It could be said that no other New York hotel is as synonymous with luxury as the century-old, 282-room Plaza. A $400 million overhaul to the New York landmark gave the huge rooms gold-plated bathroom fixtures, but it also converted most rooms overlooking Central Park into privately owned residences. Still, the exceptional spa, 24-hour butler service, and history make it worth the splurge.
#2 The St Regis New York
The grand, century-old St. Regis is known for its extraordinary service, but the hotel has many other outstanding features, including 229 elegant rooms and a great location on Fifth Avenue. While it lacks the pool and Central Park views of other Midtown luxury hotels, some will find that a famed Bloody Mary at the King Cole Bar more than compensates.
#3 Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York
With a prime location across from the MoMA and close to top shopping, this Midtown luxury hotel from the famed French crystal brand provides an opulent experience. A host of luxurious features includes the world’s first La Mer spa, a beautiful indoor pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and chic all-day dining and drinks. The 114 guest rooms feature high-tech details like tablet-controlled settings and large flat-screen TVs concealed in mirrors, plus gourmet minibars stocked with Baccarat glassware, Champagne, and Laduree treats (plus free non-alcoholic drinks). White marble bathrooms have separate tubs and rainfall showers.
#4 Four Seasons New York
Deliberately business-like, the 368-room Four Seasons in Midtown East has all the luxury essentials: an elegant, cavernous lobby (legendary architect I.M. Pei designed all of the public areas to adhere to a rigorous symmetry); beck-and-call service; a fine spa and fitness center; and some of the largest, most comfortable rooms in the city. Plus, guests can use spa facilities (whirlpool, sauna, and steam room) for free.
#5 Mandarin Oriental, New York
In the same building as some of the city’s best restaurants, and across Columbus Circle from Central Park, the Mandarin’s location is ideal. But it’s the hotel’s dizzying array of modern luxuries — a 75-foot pool, one of the city’s best spas, sweeping views from nearly every common area, huge bathrooms with deep soaking tubs (even in standard rooms), superb on-site fine-dining options, to name a few.
#6 The Peninsula New York
The 239-room Peninsula has elegant guest rooms, an indoor pool, superb gym (free workout gear, organic teas, and a sauna and steam room), widely praised spa and salon, and in-room printers that make it a fine choice for a quiet, classically luxurious hotel. And for designer shopping, its Fifth Avenue location is ideal.
#7 The Greenwich Hotel
This virtually flawless 88-room TriBeCa newcomer (opened in 2008 by Robert de Niro, among others) offers large, homey rooms, breathtaking design, and very attentive service. Even better: free Wi-Fi; free minibar snacks; and free Wii video games by request. Better still: an underground pool; a standout Japanese spa; a premier gym; and the critically acclaimed Locanda Verde restaurant.
#8 The Surrey
After a $60 million renovation, this 190-room hotel on the Upper East Side is ready to pull guests away from the nearby Carlyle with room service by Cafe Boulud, a guest-only rooftop garden with butler service, and some of the most comfortable hotel beds in New York.
#9 Langham Place Fifth Avenue
The 214-room Langham Place Fifth Avenue is a modern, luxurious hotel conveniently located close to the popular tourist sites and corporate offices of Midtown Manhattan. Rooms are huge and come with top-notch features (free Wi-Fi, iPod docks, high-end linens and toiletries).
#10 Hotel Plaza Athenee, New York
This Upper East Side boutique hotel, a sister to the world-renowned Hotel Plaza Athenee in Paris, possesses a deep-rooted commitment to service, luxury, and sophistication. Rooms are sumptuous, with classic European decor and gorgeous bathrooms. The bar and restaurant are intimate and romantic, serving excellent fine-dining fare and cocktails, while the spa and fitness center provide charming spaces to relax and rejuvenate. Above all, though, is the hotel’s dedication to service, made evident from the outset with a sit-down check-in, and continued throughout guests’ stays by the excellent Clefs d’Or concierges. It is no wonder that both Princess Diana and Elizabeth Taylor have called the Plaza Athenee home.
