5-Star hotels in NY are special. Like 5-star hotels anywhere, the highest quality, impeccable service, luxurious amenities, and pristine facilities are expected. However, it's the "specialness" of NYC, its ecstatic energy, that elevates New York's 5-star hotels to a class of their own. The distinguished New York EDITION, housed in the historic Metropolitan Life clock tower, is irrefutably one of the best New York hotels, and definitely the place to stay when visiting the Big Apple. Everything is perfect— a serene atmosphere, generous staff, sophisticated furnishings, central location, and award-winning dining from Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton. Guest rooms are lavish, spotless, tastefully decorated and feature jaw-dropping views of the Empire State Building and NY's globally recognizable skyline. Ipads are available, so it's easy to stay connected; but trust us, you'll want to disconnect and spend quality time with your sweetheartover a ravishing meal at The Clocktower restaurant or while slowly appreciating Magic Owl Easy Blonde Ale at the hotel's lobby bar. Join locals and fellow travelers on the exciting streets of NY, as parks, shopping, restaurants, popular landmarks, and the subway are within walking distance.

The Pierre, A Taj Hotel, New York, or simply The Pierre, has been for several years in a row one of the finest hotels in NYC. Currently, the task of keeping The Pierre in top shape has been handed to Taj Hotels, the Indian hospitality group (after a US$100 million renovation). This Indian influence is felt in some details of today's The Pierre, namely on the gastronomic creations by executive chef Ashfer Biju or the outstanding butler service. One of the things we enjoy the most at The Pierre is its well-preserved atmosphere from the 1930's - something like a journey back in time with today's 5-star amenities. The Pierre, A Taj Hotel, New York is located in the prestigious Fifth Avenue and faces Central Park - some of its rooms and suites feature magnificent views onto New York's most famous park and skyscrapers.

Thanks to the vision of hoteliers Tim and Kit Kemp, we are proud to present you with one of the best boutique hotels in New York with a charming view: Crosby Street Hotel. All rooms are special but the ones to go for are the ones located on the hotel's top floor - floor to ceiling windows are absolutely perfect. In fact, we could spend hours gazing out of the window and admire New York's city landscape (lower Manhattan). The hotel's 12th floor reserves a surprise: a rooftop kitchen garden where some vegetables are grown - ask the Crosby Street Hotel's chef nicely and you may get to visit this interesting space featuring contrasting NYC views. A certain British influence can be felt at Crosby Street Hotel in some details such as the bed's headboards and the romantic afternoon tea, served at the elegant The Crosby Bar. Staying at Crosby Street Hotel means staying in one of the hippest areas in New York - the SoHo (right between Prince and Spring streets, in an area with several trendy restaurants, coffee shops and art galleries). For all these reasons, and also for the fact that there's a subterranean screening room on the hotel's premises, it's not hard to understand why Crosby Street Hotel is such a movie stars-magnet.

With that dazzling view, the Viceroy Central Park New York instantly became one of our top-choice hotels in NYC. Should you feel the need to have a Central Park hotel view available 24/7 (we do understand your need, really), our advice to you is to book a Park View Suite (these are also considerably bigger compared to the hotel's standard rooms). Central Park, Fifth Avenue and Broadway Theatre are just a few minutes away from this luxury New York hotel.
