    The St. Regis, a landmark hotel set in midtown Manhattan, prides itself on its sophisticated setting and high level of customer service. Recent travelers said the hotel offers the perfect combination of old-world glamour and modern conveniences, reflected in the opulent silk wall coverings, custom-made furnishings and rich blue accents found in each of its 238 well-appointed guest rooms and suites. Inside the accommodations, guests will also find Bose sound systems, Remède toiletries and airy floor-to-ceiling windows, among other features. Visitors also suggest indulging in a refreshing cocktail at King Cole Bar. A stay here will cost a pretty penny, but if you're a Marriott Bonvoy member, rest assured that you can earn or redeem privileges, like complimentary nights, for choosing to stay here.

    Luxury-seekers have a difficult time finding fault with The Langham, New York, Fifth Avenue. Because of the contemporary panache of its interior and exterior, visitors find themselves in a world of modern luxury. Guests describe the accommodations as well-furnished and incredibly spacious (at least for New York City), though housekeeping services received mixed reviews. Rooms are outfitted with floor-to-ceiling windows, TVs built into the bathroom mirror, deep soaking tubs and complimentary Wi-Fi. Looking for a little more indulgence? Tantalize your taste buds with a meal at Ai Fiori restaurant, which serves gourmet Mediterranean cuisine. The Langham's prime location – on Fifth Avenue near the New York Public Library also appeals to both leisure and business travelers (as well as trendy city-dwellers looking for some respite from Manhattan's hustle and bustle).

    Perched on the Upper East Side just a couple of blocks from Fifth Avenue's sleek storefronts, The Lowell Hotel New York provides travelers with easy access to iconic city attractions and venerable department stores. But that's not the only reason recent guests adore this stylish boutique. The Lowell exudes a serene, elegant ambiance, further enhanced by its calming gold, cream and white color scheme. By New York standards, The Lowell is small (74 rooms and suites); however, many previous travelers call the hotel's quiet, cozy atmosphere the perfect retreat from the buzzing city blocks. Accommodations come appointed with luxurious extras, such as down comforters, flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi access – all major perks, according to previous visitors. The refreshing afternoon teatime, complete with Devonshire cream-topped scones and finger sandwiches, takes place in the second-floor Pembroke Room and also earns a nod of approval from recent guests. Keep in mind, Leaders Club members can earn or redeem perks here.

    This historical Luxury Collection hotel prides itself on blending art deco accents with modern-day accouterments like an on-site Red Door Spa and fitness lounge. Originally built in 1905, the 76-room hotel was renovated in 2010 by architect Thierry Despont. Inside the guest rooms and suites, guests will find 400-thread-count linens, 42-inch flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi access and rainfall showerheads – all excellent perks, according to recent visitors. Some suites even boast private terraces with New York City views. Plus this five-star hotel earns high marks from travelers for its prime midtown Manhattan location, just steps away from Rockefeller Center, Bryant ParkBroadway and Fifth Avenue. Recent patrons also praised the lively Lambs Club Restaurant & Bar; the hotel's intimate dining establishment has played host to a long list of celebrities and bigwigs, including Fred Astaire and Charlie Chaplin. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Midtown Manhattan's golden Peninsula calls itself a "cocoon of peace and quiet" amid the fray on Fifth Avenue. And recent travelers agree, though they contend that it's an expensive cocoon. Highlights include free internet access, the rooftop terrace Salon de Ning (which offers stunning city views) and a highly acclaimed spa and health club. But that's not all this ultra-luxurious hotel has going for it. Previous visitors cited the top-notch service, spectacular vistas and enviable location (just steps away from Central Park and Rockefeller Center) as equally compelling reasons to return. Others described the property as elegant and serene, praising the hotel's calming color palette and extra touches found in each of the accommodations, such as stocked minibars, marble baths, cozy robes and slippers, and sleek flat-screen TVs. Recent visitors also raved about the delectable dishes and sophisticated atmosphere offered at the hotel's dining establishments, the Clement Restaurant and the Gotham Lounge.

    You'll find the lobby of this Asian-inspired luxury hotel on the 35th floor of the Time Warner Building. From there, you can ascend to one of the 244 rooms and suites known for their impressive decor. Each of the accommodations – which recent guests describe as "luxury in the sky" – comes appointed with high-end amenities, such as goose-down bedding, Italian linens, complimentary bottled water, yoga mats and bathroom TVs. The spa is another matter altogether: Covering 14,500 square feet, it has a much-acclaimed lap pool and lodgers rave over the natural spa treatments. And as far as dining is concerned, you must have the delectable Asian-American fusion fare served at Asiate and the creative cocktails and small plates at The Aviary NYC and The Office NYC, which is styled after a speakeasy.

    This stylish Ritz rises above Central Park's south side, beckoning to luxury-seekers in search of a prime midtown Manhattan location paired with impeccable customer service. Previous travelers highlight the elegance of the 259 redesigned accommodations, calling out extra touches like 400-thread-count linens, deep-soaking tubs and Asprey bath products as major perks. Past visitors also cite the hotel staff as extremely accommodating. You're guaranteed a five-star stay here, from the mouthwatering entrees served at the swanky Auden Bistro & Bar to the lavish spa services at the in-house La Prairie. Despite the exorbitant price tag, recent guests agreed the hotel's unparalleled location and ambiance are worth the splurge. And thanks to the Ritz's Marriott ties, guests who participate in the company's guest loyalty program may also receive complimentary perks, such as free nights, for choosing to stay here.

    Part of the sky-high One57 building, the Park Hyatt New York is one of the newest five-star properties in the Big Apple. First opened in August 2014, the hotel houses 210 spacious rooms, including 92 suites, outfitted with natural stone floors, minibars and Nespresso coffee makers, as well as dual-sink bathrooms with separate soaking tubs and rainfall showers. Each accommodation also features techie touches, including a TV built into the bathroom mirror. When it's time to disconnect and unwind, guests can get a treatment at the on-site Spa Nalai, then take advantage of the hot tub, steam room or indoor swimming pool. The hotel is also home to the Livint Room, a cozy bar and restaurant. Recent guests raved about the large, well-decorated guest rooms, the friendly staff and the hotel's prime location on West 57th Street, just south of Central Park and across the street from Carnegie Hall. However, some visitors note that because the hotel occupies the first 25 floors of the 90-story building, some of the rooms' views are less than stellar. (Try to book an accommodation on the 19th floor or above, facing midtown Manhattan for the best panorama.) Rates are on the pricey side, but because the hotel falls under the Hyatt umbrella, brand loyalty members are able to earn and redeem points to offset the cost.

    As you walk inside the Four Seasons Hotel New York, you might feel like you're entering a certain famous museum in Paris. After all, the opulent art deco lobby with its onyx ceiling was designed by I.M. Pei (you may have seen his pyramidal work outside the Louvre). This Four Seasons rises 52 stories high and holds 368 rooms and suites, including one of the most expensive guest rooms in America. You can unwind after a day of sightseeing with a cocktail in hand at the hotel's super-swanky and recently renovated bar, Ty Bar. Or, if you're hungry, indulge your taste buds with delectable cuisine at one of the Big Apple's top-rated restaurants pioneered by executive chef John Johnson, The Garden. Afterward, retreat to your luxe digs, which offer plush robes, goose-down pillows and duvets, marble bathrooms and sweeping views of Central Park or the alluring Manhattan skyline. But the deluxe amenities and stunning vistas aren't the only things recent visitors gush over. Travelers say the outstanding service and sophisticated atmosphere found here make this world-class hotel stand apart from its competitors. And, of course, with that comes a high price tag.

    One of the newer luxury hotels in the Big Apple, the Quin may be on its way to becoming one of the best, according to feedback from guests. Steps from Central Park and Carnegie Hall in midtown Manhattan, the Quin Central Park by Hilton Club boasts brightly colored artwork (inspired by the works of Georgia O'Keeffe and Marc Chagall), contemporary architecture and 208 well-appointed guest rooms and suites. Sferra bedding, Fresh bath products and Nespresso coffee makers are just some of the brand-name amenities you can enjoy while you relax in your digs. The coolest part? You can manage your comfort from your nightstand, where you'll spot the Evolve Guest Controls system – a flat-screen console that powers everything from lighting and room temperature to your preferred music choice. Your comfortable stay extends to The Wayfarer restaurant, where decadence comes in the form of seafood and other tasty, innovative morsels. Artists and theatergoers alike will find an extra perk in the Quin: Once a respite for dancers, opera singers and painters, this hotel stirs a sense of creativity. It continues to foster that creativity through its art program, where it features a rotating collection of artwork from different artists throughout the year.

    Since 1930, The Pierre has been sitting pretty along swanky Fifth Avenue across from Central Park. Epitomized by its opulent rotunda, this elegant hotel strives to provide elite luxury befitting of its Upper East Side locale. Recent travelers praised the tastefully decorated rooms and comfortable beds, as well as the gracious hotel staff. Wellness professionals are ready to pamper you with soothing in-room massages, and Perrine, the on-site restaurant, draws guests out of their rooms with delectable dishes. If you can, book a room facing the park. Previous visitors said that the views overlooking the greenery are spectacular. Keep in mind that all of the recently renovated rooms boast sweeping city or park views, along with Turkish marble bathrooms, luxe toiletries and Bose sound systems.

    According to recent visitors, the best thing about this Trump property – which overlooks Central Park's southern end – is the service, from its white-gloved bellhops to its helpful concierges. Travelers, including those on business and those with kids in tow, rave about the staff's efficiency and professionalism. Along with impeccable service, you'll also have plenty of space in your accommodations, which are appointed with floor-to-ceiling windows, fully equipped kitchens and 55-inch flat-screen TVs. But if you're still craving more luxury, head straight to the 6,000-square-foot spa for a relaxing treatment or indulge in a world-class meal at Jean-Georges or Nougatine restaurants. Recent travelers caution, though, that the food and room rates are expensive.

    Those looking to embrace New York City's lavish lifestyle but with a sustainable, eco-friendly mindset should consider a stay at the 1 Hotel Central Park. Opened in August 2015, this 229-room property is LEED certified and features reclaimed barn wood ceiling beams, live-edge wood block desks, hemp-blend Keetsa bedding and views of Central Park. But that doesn't mean you'll miss out on modern luxuries when you bed down here. Each room comes equipped with a Nespresso coffee maker, a glass-enclosed walk-in shower, free Wi-Fi access and a 55-inch LCD TV. This modern-meets-green concept extends into the building amenities as well. In addition to the locally sourced California cuisine offered at Jams restaurant (which guests recommend even though menu items are on the pricier side), visitors also have access to a gym and a business area with iPads. And if you're looking for a bit more action, don't fret. As a guest of the 1 Hotel Central Park, you'll have access to the property's complimentary Tesla car service, which will drop you anywhere within a 15-block radius, including some of NYC's popular attractions like Times Square, Radio City Music Hall and the Museum of Modern Art.

Recent travelers were particularly impressed with the comfortable rooms, impeccable customer service and convenient location on Park Avenue. Although, some lamented the pricey rates. Another perk of staying here: Thanks to the hotel's Loews ties, guests participating in the company's rewards program may accrue extra freebies, such as complimentary room upgrades.

    This mansion-turned-hotel was designed by Stanford White and funded by railroad tycoon Henry Villard in the late 19th century; since then many have spent the night in the Lotte New York Palace (including the fictional Serena van der Woodsen of "Gossip Girl"). Previous visitors say the hotel is exquisite, from the decor to the view of St. Patrick's Cathedral just across the street. But above all, guests love the classic accommodations, outfitted in soothing neutral tones with brocade drapes and offering extra touches like thick terrycloth robes and 42-inch plasma TVs. Although some bemoan the iconic hotel's steep room rates and note a few issues with requests from hotel staff, most say the ideal location and impressive views make it worth the price.

    Archer Hotel New York is situated right off the Avenue of Americas in the Garment District, just two blocks south of Bryant Park and the New York Public Library. The hotel's midtown location makes it convenient to most attractions in Manhattan and guests can easily access multiple public transportation lines. Recent guests note that while rooms are on the smaller side, the accommodating customer service makes up for the lack of space. Staff members remember patrons by name and many guests credit the friendly and courteous employees as the reason for a return visit. Guests also praise the comfortable beds that make for a good night's sleep. Other room amenities include floor-to-ceiling windows (some with views of the Empire State Building), minifridges stocked with refreshments, 42-inch flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi. When it's time to eat, the Archer is home to two dining options: Check out the Spyglass rooftop bar for small bites and cocktails, or if you're in the mood for something more substantial, Charlie Palmer Steak offers seasonal menus, prime cuts of beef and a world-class wine list. Plus, taking a cue from its Garment District home, the Archer Hotel is decorated with curated souvenirs from local artisans.

    Some of the nearly 400 rooms in this midtown Manhattan hotel offer great views of the Chrysler Building – others offer less inspiring ones (request a room on a high floor for better views). Still, Sofitel's prime location is ideal for fashionistas and theatergoers looking to take advantage of much-loved Manhattan landmarks like Broadway and Fifth Avenue. And though Sofitel is a relatively new hotel, it blends a European Old World design aesthetic with modern amenities almost seamlessly, from its elegant bar to its soundproofed windows and walls. Accommodations also come appointed with complimentary mineral water, flat-screen TVs and spacious bathrooms – all perks recent visitors praised. Recent guests also appreciated the quiet rooms and enviable location. Plus, foodies will delight in the French fare dished up at the hotel's stylish bistro, Gaby. Those who prefer to explore the Big Apple by following their taste buds will find a bounty of world-class restaurants just steps away.

Another popular draw is the Refinery Rooftop Bar and Lounge, which offers tasty cocktails and sweeping views of downtown Manhattan and the Empire State Building. Inside, the hotel's drinking and dining options include nostalgia-inspired seasonal cuisine at the Parker & Quinn Restaurant and prohibition era drinks at Winnie's Jazz Lounge.

    This charming boutique midtown Manhattan hotel receives high praise from recent guests for its accommodating staff, fanciful decor and unique theme: the 10 major classifications of the Dewey Decimal System.

The accommodations also come with iHome radios, Gilchrist & Soames toiletries and minifridges, not to mention iconic Manhattan skyline views, in some suites. Additional amenities include complimentary breakfast, free bottled water, cheese and wine each evening and free wireless internet access – all much-appreciated perks according to previous visitors. Although some travelers describe the accommodations as slightly compact, even by New York standards, most cite a very pleasant stay overall thanks to the hotel's inviting atmosphere and prime location.

Most guests describe the hotel service as "outstanding," and though the high prices were a deterrent for some, visitors agree that the cuisine served at the award-winning Arabelle restaurant is worth tasting, even if the prices are high. Without making an extra dent in your wallet, you can enjoy access to the renovated fitness center and fully equipped business center.

Still, travelers praise the accommodations for their extra touches like marble bathrooms, Bose Wave sound systems and stocked minibars. Another perk: The Michelangelo offers complimentary shuttle service between the hotel and Wall Street from 7 to 9 a.m. Monday through Friday. After a long day, you can unwind at the casual hotel lounge, which earns props from previous patrons for its tasty Italian fare.

    The London NYC lures travelers with its sophisticated, yet relaxed atmosphere. And, like its name suggests, this luxury hotel has a very British vibe from its elegant decor to its on-site bar and eatery, The London Bar. Although The London NYC is perched in midtown on West 54th Street, the spacious vista suites are so high up that guests have sweeping views of Manhattan's city skyline and even Central Park, several blocks north. Accommodations are all suites and feature touches like oversized work desks, two flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi access. But, according to recent guests, what sets this hotel apart from its peers is its gracious hotel staff and central location, within walking distance of bustling Times Square and the storefronts lining Fifth Avenue. Now part of Hilton's Conrad brand, the hotel allows Hilton Honors members to rack up and redeem points here. The property will remain open as it undergoes a transition, renovation and rebranding to become the Conrad New York Midtown.

    Where 1920s glamour meets modern art deco design, the WestHouse New York is adorned with crystal chandeliers, eucalyptus wood accents and detailed handrails. This midtown Manhattan hotel is located at the corner of West 55th Street and Seventh Avenue. And the hotel offers guests a major perk for navigating the high-action neighborhood: Luxury concierge service WestHouse Attaché will design your New York itinerary, taking day-to-day activity planning off your hands. All that extra time should give you a chance to focus on enjoying the personal trainers, butlers, in-room spa treatments and overnight shoe shines all available upon request (and for a fee). Or simply fall into the Sferra luxury linens inside each of the 172 guest rooms and suites, where you can customize the temperature and music in your room with your Intelity Bedside Touchscreen Controls, or peruse the internet. Though keep in mind, there's a $45 per adult per night "residents fee;" this includes breakfast, afternoon treats and hors d'oeuvres, drinks on the terrace and the high-speed Wi-Fi. While some guests appreciated those extra offerings, guests who couldn't take advantage were not pleased they still had to pay the fee. Another point of contention among recent travelers was inconsistencies with the staff.

    This chic hotel set in the heart of Manhattan, right across the street from the New York Public Library, earns major props for its exceptional space. Inside, guests are greeted with a 14-foot mural, massive windows and unique loft-style guest rooms. And the elegance extends to the airy and spacious accommodations, which feature deluxe amenities like travertine marble bathrooms, thick robes, large work desks, flat-screen TVs and stocked minibars filled with complimentary snacks (a bonus recent visitors highlight as a much-appreciated perk). Another major plus about staying at Andaz: Thanks to its Hyatt connection, Hyatt Gold Passport holders may redeem privileges, such as free night stays, by choosing to stay here. And though some previous visitors were disappointed with the service, most report a pleasant stay overall thanks to great location and comfortable rooms. When your stomach starts to rumble, head downstairs to The Bar Downstairs for some food and drinks.

    Recent guests said this hotel's location, staff and design blew them out of the water. Many visitors especially loved the Viceroy Central Park New York's stylish common areas and smartly decorated rooms. Particular favorites among lodgers are the comfortable beds (with custom-designed Sferra linens), the complimentary wireless internet access and the flat-screen Samsung smart TVs in each room. While many guests complained that their rooms were a bit small, most agree that the hotel's location at West 57th Street and Sixth Avenue in midtown Manhattan makes up for it. You can nab a great view of all the action from this Viceroy hotel's lounge and outdoor terrace, The Roof, which serves up cocktails and light fare. And for a more substantial meal, slide into a leather booth at Kingside Restaurant for an eclectic menu of new American cuisine and regional brews.
