When you’re trying to choose from the overwhelming array of New York hotels, one strategy is to narrow it down by area. If Museum Mile institutions such as the Met are on your itinerary, you might want to base yourself on the Upper East Side. The Upper West Side is home to some of the city’s premier performing-arts venues, including the Metropolitan Opera House and the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center, while Harlem has lively bars, lots of history and one of the city’s classic music venues.

The 1930 landmark overlooking Central Park became part of the posh Indian Taj Hotels, Resorts and Palaces in 2005, setting in motion a $100 million overhaul—but it retains delightfully old-fashioned elements such as elevator operators and original fireplaces in some suites. In contrast to the

The Harlem Flophouse

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Price band: 1/4

The dark-wood interior, moody lighting and lilting jazz music make musician Rene Calvo’s Harlem inn feel more like a 1930s speakeasy than a 21st-century B&B. The airy suites, named for Harlem Renaissance figures such as Chester Himes and Cozy Cole, have restored tin ceilings, a quirky mix of
