I’ve always enjoyed staying at The Greenwich Hotel New York. Lovely pool, unpretentious & subtle. It may be a boutique hotel but it’s not Gansevoort loudness. At $ 800 per night, it’s clearly not cheap.
I always like smallish, quiet & comfortable hotels.
I’d welcome any suggestions. Thank you.30 Aug 2011
For Me, three favorites in NYC are St. Regis and Peninsula for Fifth Avenue and near enough Central Park, they are right across the street from each other, Butler service is superb, and stunning hotels in general. But my most favorite for the feeling of a private residence/club and the best in personlised service has to be the Carlyle at 35 East 76th street, simply put, an absolute delight!30 Aug 2011
I used to enjoy staying around Soho in the mid 90s when it was art galleries & non main stream. Soho is now too commercial for
I stayed at the Mandarin in 2006. Apart from the very high room rate, there is hardly any communal lounge space for guests & the address on Columbus Circle is a little misleading. When leaving at 06.30am for the day flight to London, I found the $ 20 charge for a black coffee excessive.
Recently I have enjoyed The Greenwich. Using the website suggested by CallMeIshmael, the Greenwich is the only hotel listing a pool. Personally I do like Tribeca, as it is a little undiscovered.
The Gansevoort’s pool was closed when I stayed at that hotel, so I was allowed to use the pool at Soho House. More like a bath, it was so small.30 Aug 2011
Hi, saw this thread and wanted to ask if anyone has been to the new Element Hotel by Westin at Times Sq? Its their new green eco brand.
Happy to reciprocate on Middle East hotels if needed.1 Sep 2011
Hello to all readers: Another great service hotel in New York is Warwick New York Hotel, located near Central Park South, 65th West 54th Street @ 6th avenue. Thanks.22 May 2012
Like London, I tend to find the hotels in NYC overpriced PLUS everything is extra. I tend to stay over the bridge in NJ and with the savings splash out on a decent limo service to take me around.22 May 2012
The Hyatt on the Hudson is a viable alternative to staying on Manhattan, and especially so if you’re flying into/out of EWR Newark New Jersey airport, as Silverjet used to do.
Very handy for the PATH trains direct to WTC, and great views of the city at night.22 May 2012

New York can be daunting to get around. My favorite downtown hotel’s Ritz Carlton Battery City, for easy access to EWR & lower Manhattan. Uptown’s its the Four Seasons NY. For an incredible stay, try PH 5501 at the Millenium Hilton NY for a fantastic view of both rivers. 5501 takes up half the top floor. Sign me, former New Yorker!6 Jun 2012
