The 13 Best Hotels in New York



Empire Suite

A fixture on Manhattan’s elegant Madison Avenue, this classic hotel has earned its status as a New York landmark.

Showcasing beautiful art and refined décor and positioned a stone’s throw away from some of the city’s finest galleries, The Carlyle is a sanctuary for sophisticated travelers seeking a ‘home away from home’. Every American president since Truman has visited The Carlyle, and many of Europe’s royals have stayed here as well, including the Prince of Wales and the Kings and Queens of Denmark, Greece, Spain and Sweden.


Why we love it: More an exclusive residential apartment than a hotel suite, this duplex’s hallmark is its private art collection curated by The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The spacious suite features three bedrooms, a living room, an office with an Apple computer and four and a half baths. Floor-to-ceiling views of Central Park, as well as the chic Art Deco design by Thierry Despont, will make you swoon. Complimentary services include a bottle of Dom Perignon, Cristal or Krug champagne.
