My husband and I stayed at the Surrey for three nights, and we were impressed by the size of the Grand Deluxe Salon room. For NYC, this was an amazingly spacious room with two sofas, a desk, king bed, steam shower, marble top sinks, and all impeccably decorated.
We met the general manager of the hotel, who informed us that the designer of this newly remodeled hotel apparently lived in the space for several months to get a feel for the neighborhood and style of the architecture before embarking on the design. It really shows! The mosaic tile in the lobby was impressive, and this theme is repeated in the guest rooms as well.
Be sure to enjoy the rooftop terrace on the penthouse floor. They serve great cocktails, and you'll get some amazing views of the city!
When we usually stay in NYC, we are much closer to Midtown, but we enjoyed the different vibe of the Upper East Side this time. Near our hotel, we saw Sean (P Diddy) Combs jogging and Gossip Girl was filming in the hotel lobby when we returned one night. The area is much more "neighborhood-y", so if you want to blend in, it's perfect.
Since we live in Boston, we drove and the hotel graciously kept our car safe for only $50/night in a nearby garage. Much cheaper than flying or taking the train!
All in all, I definitely recommend this hotel. It's well worth the price, and you won't be disappointed.
