“fun, elegant and personal”
Reviewed 26 March 2011

stayed at the sherry for 3 nights whilst in new york, which is one of my favourite cities in the world. the staff there are the best thing about it.... warm and helpful, but never intruding. the rooms are beautifully appointed without trying too hard, with a botanical theme. because i'm not fond of large impersonal lobbies, i was really pleased arriving at the sherry despite the bustle outside its entrance. it felt like SUCH a privilege every time i walked through that revolving door. although i would have preferred a slightly quieter address further into the upper east side, there is something to be said for its proximity to bergdorf goodman :P
although we didn't make use of the room service, i believe many good things have been said about its neighbour Harry cipriani. i'm always charmed by any establishment that offers free drinks in its minibar - whilst not the type to drink many of them in the first place, it just seems so much less 'commercial' this way... honestly, who's going to drink 20 cans of coke from the minibar, even if they were free?
so... the sherry might suit someone like me, who prefers their hotels thoughtful, beautiful and intimate.

Stayed December 2010, travelled as a couple

OK, so most of us can’t afford to be upper east-siders. But we can stay at the Sherry to see what the big deal is. And, it is a big deal. Walking distance to Broadway, the Lincoln Center and the main art museums. (don’t miss the Whitney!), as well as the many wonderful restaurants. Then, the hotel itself is no hotel. It is a residence. The staff is as professional as they come. We stayed for several days and lost the feeling of being yokels from Virginia because we were treated as residents. The rooms are exquisitely appointed and larger than the NYC norm. Cipriani’s is the attached restaurant and has great service and excellent food, which came with a discount, since we were residents … er … hotel guests. We try to get to the Apple at least once a year and traditionally select the Sherry. Occasionally we experiment with other venues such as the Plaza. But we have always happily returned to “our” place. The Sherry. We’d give it six stars, if we could.

I spent the weekend at the hotel and the service was perfect. The room was great and the staff was awesome as always. This is my favorite hotel in New York.

If I were to run a hotel, I'd do it the way it's done by the staff of The Sherry-Netherland. I'd been told by a friend of the superior staff, rooms, service, historical ambiance, still I knew there was no such place left in the U.S. Boy, was I wrong.

The building is comprised mainly of apartments, lending it an air of quiet elegance, not at all dreary like some historic hotels. It faces the SE corner of Central Park, convenient for shopping and hopping on local transportation. The rooms are cheerful and immaculate, tastefully appointed with modern conveniences. As a side note, the park was too icy to run in during my stay; I discovered the Sherry has one of the best fitness rooms I've ever visited at a hotel!

Prices are steep, but what isn't in the city? I can't wait to be able to come back to The Sherry!

My daughter and I spent last weekend at The Sherry-Netherland, and were immediately impressed with the warm welcome at the front desk and the handwritten welcome note in our room. The staff made us feel at home, from the elevator operators who knew our floor, to the doormen who always greeted us so graciously. Our suite was lovely, appointed with beautiful furnishings in soft colors, and the bedding was so comfortable, it was like sleeping on a cloud! The location of the hotel could not be better, right on Fifth Ave at
59th St, overlooking the main entrance to Central Park. The highly acclaimed restaurant, Harry Cipriani, is there to be enjoyed by hotel guests as well as New Yorkers in the know.
We think The Sherry-Netherland is a true gem, and give it the highest marks for luxury,
service and location in New York City!!!!

Great stay. The location, right next to the Apple Store — not far from the bustling stores that line 5th Ave, but not in the noise and commotion either. The hotel has a beautiful view of the trees and water bodies of Central Park.
Service was really personalized. It's a small hotel: a small but dedicated staff. The housingkeeping lady would talk to us every day if we were in. The guys at the reception would greet us every time we walked in.
The hotel lobby is small (really tiny), but tastefully decorated. This is not the kind of hotel that looks like The Plaza the moment you walk in, but it has its own charm — sometimes charm is in simplicity.
My only complaint is the breakfast: a tad bit too expensive. But with amazing breakfast places nearby, we had no reason to complain! (we tried out different breakfast places daily — it's a great way to dine at places you wouldn't normally visit).
The Sherry will remain our first choice in Manhattan — above the Waldorf, Plaza, Palace and Pierre.
