Heading to NYC? Why Not Stay at The Best of the Best?

We know that you’re just itching for that next vacation or staycation at the earliest possible date. If you’re heading to the Big Apple then you might want to retire for the night at the best possible hotel. Here’s our list of establishments which we consider the best in terms of services and luxury, even though they come at a price.

Baccarat Hotel

Midtown from $895/night

The Baccarat promises unabashed opulence when you step into the lobby with about 15,000 individual pieces of the same brand’s crystal throughout the hotel, including the glassware and the grand chandeliers. Though with a singular vision, the little touches in the minibar to the Baccarat tumblers in the wash closet, make the stay so very special.

The Greenwich Hotel

Tribeca from $755/night

Greenwich Hotel’s 88 rooms are exquisitely arranged and adorned with antique silk rugs, odd vintage tables, marble bath tubs, while the famed TriBeCa Penthouse is minimalist and earthy. The Shibui Spa, has a lantern-lit pool glimmering under the wooden beams from a real 250-year-old Japanese farmhouse.

The Lowell Hotel

Upper East Side from $610/night

A feeling of refinement as every room has daily changed fresh flowers, huge marble-laid bathrooms with a separate tub and shower section, and custom-made products from the expensive DDC28 line. Unlike other big luxury chains, it infuses a quiet and almost personalized feeling, decidedly on a small scale, and worth the lack of extras like a spa or swimming pool.

NoMad Hotel

NoMad from $400/night

The NoMad lets you experience a little bit of Paris, urbane and cultivated, in the Flatiron district, without any stuffiness. If possible, the food is even better than the accommodations and that is high praise indeed.

The Whitby Hotel

Manhattan from $570/night

It’s family-friendly and sophisticated, operated by the Firmdale Group. The Whitby offers its patrons a calm stay, with loud and calm eclectic designs and focus on art, serious luxury and unpretentious service. A gorgeous hotel two blocks from Central Park with excellent restaurant and afternoon tea service, Whitby is value for money.

The Chatwal     

Midtown from £360/night

With 76 rooms, this Theatre District jewel proves that many great things may come in rather small packages. The beautiful Art Deco interiors, personal service, and Geoffrey Zakarian’s fancy restaurant and bar hoist up The Chatwal as one of the most preferred of Midtown’s hotels.
