U.S. News Review

Elegant luxury at its finest, The Sherry-Netherland hotel of the high-class Upper East Side offers guests a palatial experience with its high ceilings, large bathrooms, high-end shops and contemporary, art-filled rooms. Recent guests particularly compliment this boutique's stylish accommodations, filled with large marble baths, complimentary morning newspapers and free Wi-Fi access. A few visitors lament that standard guest rooms lack kitchenettes (those are only available in suites). Still, most report an excellent stay overall thanks to the hotel's refined setting, superb location and delectable cuisine and cocktails served at Harry Cipriani.

Critic Reviews

Forbes Travel

“Since its opening in 1927, The Sherry-Netherland has been a Central Park favorite and a Fifth Avenue landmark thanks to its stunning architecture and Gothic minaret.”

The Guardian

“The rooms have placed comfort above all and the hotel boasts a beautiful view of Central Park.”


“With only 100 individually decorated rooms, white-gloved elevator operators, and a marble, vaulted lobby with crystal chandeliers, this boutique is exclusive, elegant and historic.”

Condé Nast Traveler

“Built in 1927, this former residential hotel across from Central Park earns perfect scores for its "wonderful service," "perfect location," and rooms with a "million-dollar view of the park."”

New York Magazine

“Class and elegance emanate from every pore of the Sherry-Netherland.”

Location & Parking

In the Upper East Side, on the edge of Central Park's southeastern tip, this historic hotel is hard to miss. In an old-money area that oozes luxury this hotel fits right in with its Fifth Avenue clock and Gothic minaret. This area is bustling during the day, but empties out in the evenings.

  • On Fifth Avenue, the hotel is just a stroll away from high-end shopping like Tiffany's, Louis Vuitton, Burberry, and Chanel to name a few. Just around the corner from the Pulitzer Fountain.
  • Four subway stations within a five block radius (subway lines F, N, Q, R, 4, 5 and 6)
  • 24-hour valet parking ($55 )
  • 24-hour self-parking

  • While the part of the Upper East Side surrounding the Sherry-Netherland isn't particularly known for its innovative restaurant scene, there are a few tucked away options including some delis four blocks south on Seventh Avenue
