    The Lowell Hotel New York
    New York, NY
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 382 reviewsTripAdvisor (382)
    Free WiFi

    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.

    the Quin Central Park by Hilton Club
    New York, NY
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3386 reviewsTripAdvisor (3386)
    Free WiFi

    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.

    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 854 reviewsTripAdvisor (854)
    Free WiFi

    Situated in New York's trendy SoHo neighborhood, the Crosby Street Hotel is an import from Great Britain (both the brand and the designer are British). All 86 accommodations feature a whimsical yet refined appearance, complete with airy warehouse-style windows, flat-screen TVs and spacious bathrooms trimmed with granite, oak and glass. In addition to the mod decor, recent guests praise the elegant furnishings and stunning city views, not to mention amenities like iPod docking stations, flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi. As far as dining is concerned, previous visitors love the convivial Crosby Bar, which serves up American and British fare. Above all, travelers cite the impeccable customer service and colorful SoHo locale as primary reasons to stay, though caution that it is pricey to stay here.

    The Greenwich Hotel
    New York, NY
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 581 reviewsTripAdvisor (581)
    Free WiFi

    This ultra-trendy Tribeca hotel is often exalted by guests as "outstanding," "stylish" and "bohemian." Each of The Greenwich's 88 rooms and suites features eclectic accents that vary from Moroccan-tiled bathrooms to fine Tibetan silk rugs. And though no two accommodations are the same, travelers rave about the luxurious room amenities, which include flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and stocked minibars. But that's not all this chic hotel has going for it. The pool and Shibui spa earn high marks from previous visitors, as does the hip Locanda Verde restaurant – a casual Italian spot known for its zesty fare. While staying here, be sure to keep an eye out for celebrities; this discreet hotel serves as a stomping ground for A-listers (after all, the hotel is owned by actor Robert De Niro). And Leaders Club members you're in luck – as part of The Leading Hotels of the World, this property grants perks like welcome gifts and upgrades.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1770 reviewsTripAdvisor (1770)
    Free WiFi

    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.

    Archer Hotel New York
    New York, NY
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3718 reviewsTripAdvisor (3718)
    Free WiFi

    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.

    The James New York - SoHo
    New York, NY
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1634 reviewsTripAdvisor (1634)
    Free WiFi

    Sitting in the trendy SoHo neighborhood, The James specializes in providing guests with sophisticated and modern suites alongside excellent service. Each of The James' rooms features a flat-screen TV, complimentary Wi-Fi access, wood flooring and a natural color palette to create a warm and inviting place to bed down. Recent guests also give kudos to The James' luxurious (and eco-friendly) bath products, but note the rooms are small, even by New York standards. The rooftop bar, JIMMY, is equally alluring with its cozy fireplaces, zesty cocktails and 360-degree views of the Manhattan skyline. The Gitano Jungle Room NYC receives high praise from guests for its inventive fare inspired by the Yucutan Peninsula.

    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4907 reviewsTripAdvisor (4907)
    Free WiFi

    Manhattan's Fashion District is the perfect home for this stylish boutique hotel, where vintage furniture sits alongside original artwork that nods to the hotel's millinery factory past. Guest rooms complete the industrial aesthetic with hardwood floors, marble bathrooms, antique bronze hinges and door handles and desks that resemble sewing machines from the earliest years of the 20th century. Recent visitors rave about the property's hip, spacious digs, highly accommodating staff and accessible midtown Manhattan location. 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.

    Free WiFi

    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. Each of the hotel's 10 floors tastefully exhibits one of these categories from literature to technology to philosophy. 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.

    Hôtel Plaza Athénée New York

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 830 reviewsTripAdvisor (830)
    Free WiFi

    The Hôtel Plaza Athénée, located on the Upper East Side, exudes an air of grandeur. Recent guests loved the hotel's elegant atmosphere and tasteful decor, found everywhere from the lobby decked with Italian marble to the refined accommodations, appointed with crisp Italian linens, French accents, rich silks and modern amenities like iPod docking stations and flat-screen TVs. 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.

    The Michelangelo
    New York, NY
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4119 reviewsTripAdvisor (4119)
    Free Breakfast

    Recent guests raved about The Michelangelo's prime location, set within walking distance of major attractions like Times Square and Fifth Avenue. And although most of the hotel's rooms and suites are pretty spacious (for New York City, anyway), many previous visitors agreed that you should book a room with a view since those without one can feel a little drab. 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.

    WestHouse Hotel New York
    New York, NY
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2365 reviewsTripAdvisor (2365)
    Free WiFi

    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.

    Free WiFi

    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.

    Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa

    Free Parking

    Overlooking Lake Placid's main street from a hilltop perch, the Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa has been an Adirondack mainstay since 1883. The resort is filled with exposed wooden beams and cozy fireplaces reminiscent of the lodges of yesteryear, but Mirror Lake is still catching up to the times. Accommodations are outfitted with wooden furniture, vaulted ceilings and expansive windows that offer views of Mirror Lake and the surrounding mountains – and recent visitors say the panoramas are stunning. However, those looking to stay connected to the world bemoaned having to pay extra for Wi-Fi access. When it's time for some R&R outside your digs, head to the spa for a massage or body scrub, or take a dip in the hot tub. Aside from its location and ample on-site amenities, travelers also praise the delectable culinary offerings available at The View, Taste Bistro & Bar and The Cottage.
