Though actually fairly large (190 rooms), the Surrey seems like a small boutique hotel, due mainly to the excellent and personalized service of its staff.
Our king-bed room was not large in terms of square feet, but was so well-designed it offered everything we needed: a roomy sitting area, a desk and chair, the large bed, and a generous bathroom. The room was tastefully decorated in white, black, and grays, and had windows on two sides.
On one side of the compact lobby is Café Boulud. Known for its expensive, haute-cuisine dinners, it also offers a delicious and reasonably priced breakfast menu. On the other side of the lobby is the stunning Bar Pleiades.
The Surrey’s downside is the fact it’s very expensive. And it’s not just the high room rates; you end up paying more for everything. For example, there is no coffee maker, or even tea bags, in the room. If you want a couple of cups of coffee in your room, you must pay $17 plus tip for room service. Even more problematic, in-room wi-fi is $16 per day, and the service is so slow as to be almost useless.
