The exclusive hotel blends seamlessly with the ritzy residential neighborhood just off of Central Park, and staff has plenty of experience assisting celebrity clientele. So, even if you’ve never won an Emmy, they’ll treat you like you have.

Set on a quiet, tree-lined street off Madison Avenue, the hotel entry has a hushed, secret-garden ambience; guests check in while seated at an antique French desk, then pass huge granite urns of cascading flowers on their way to the elevators.



The hotel may seem stuffy to younger visitors but to others it's a welcome dose of old-school luxury. (But it is a little stuffy.)


Historic property with gorgeous, European-style decor and charming period details
