Ace Hotel New York

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Price band: 3/4
  • 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: 2/4
  • 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

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,
