Ace Hotel New York

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Bourgeois hipsters tired of crashing on couches will appreciate the New York outpost of the cool chainlet founded in Seattle by a pair of DJs. The music influence is clear: Many of the rooms in the 1904 building boast playful amenities like functioning turntables, stacks of vinyl and gleaming

The NoMad Hotel

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Price band: 3/4
  • Critics choice

A block south of hipster hub the Ace Hotel, the NoMad heralds what may finally emerge as a bona fide ’hood: North of Madison Square Park. The properties share a developer, and like the Ace, the NoMad is a self-contained microcosm encompassing destination dining—courtesy of Daniel Humm and Will

The Surrey

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Price band: 4/4
  • Critics choice

A stylish addition to an area thin on unstuffy accommodation, the Surrey, in a solid pre-war Beaux Arts building given a $60 million overhaul, pitches at both traditionalists and the trend-driven. Flanked by top chef Daniel Boulud’s Café Boulud and his chic cocktail destination, Bar Pleiades,

Chambers Hotel

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Price band: 3/4
  • Critics choice

Though it opened in 2001, Chambers has a contemporary residential style that feels utterly current. The double-height lobby, with low seating, a gas fire and a warm color palette of mossy green, brown and gray, exudes Zen serenity. It also showcases some of the owners’ 500-piece art collection,

The Chatwal New York

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Price band: 4/4
  • Critics choice

In a city awash with faux deco and incongruous nods to the style, the Chatwal New York opened in August 2010 in a Stanford White building whose interior art deco restoration is pitch perfect. Hotelier Sant Chatwal entrusted the design of this 1905 beaux arts building (formerly the clubhouse for the

414 Hotel

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Price band: 1/4
  • Critics choice

This reasonably priced hotel truly deserves the boutique title. Nearly everything about it is exquisite yet unshowy, from its power-blasted brick exterior to the modern color scheme in the rooms that pairs gray headboards and red accents. Rooms are equipped with fridges, flat-screen TVs and iPod

  1. 414 W 46th St, between Ninth and Tenth Aves, 10036

Greenwich Hotel

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Price band: 4/4
  • Critics choice

"Deluxe guest house" might be a more apt description of Robert De Niro’s latest property, which has the vibe of a large villa somewhere between Marrakech and Milan. Rooms are spare and comfortable, appointed with down-filled leather settees, kilims and oriental rugs, and furnished with small

Hotel Metro

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

It may not be trendy, but the Metro is that rare thing: a solid, good-value hotel that is extremely well maintained. Every two years, the owners start renovating the rooms, floor by floor, starting at the top; by the time they’re finished it’s almost time to start again. So even "old" rooms are

The James New York

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

Art is the new hotel buzzword, but displays are usually limited to some eye-catching lobby installations or forgettable in-room prints. Not so at the James, which maintains a substantial showcase of local talent. The corridor of each guest floor is dedicated to the work of an individual artist,

We will be heading to New York next month. It will be a very fun trip. However, we have no idea where to stay. Thanks for posting the prices of the hotels there. We are going to try and save as much money as we can. Finding a cheaper hotel would be ideal for us. http://www.cbvipg.com/
