If you are going to New York stay in The Surrey. He's five reason why you should make it a must.
1) It's stunning. Decor, towels, robes, public areas and the new roof garden are furnished to the highest quality.
2) The location. Just close enough to the madness of NY city centre but far enough out to feel like you are in a suburb. Also it's a spit from Central Park.
3) Food. Have dinner at Cafe Boulud. Outstanding food.
4) The Staff. This could be 1 - 5 for good reasons. They really are so helpful. Michael the Concierge is out of this world. He'll fix anything and if he can't he'll have a back up plan! Front desk, house keeping, porters, etc are all immaculate and really want to help. They also get a big plus from me by not doing the normally gross New York Hotel tactic of expecting a tip instead they accept gratuities with grace and surprise (if it's faked it looks perfect!)
5) The overall package. OK so it's on the higher end but I'm all for value for money and The Surrey made me feel like we were getting outstanding VFM from the off.
Go for it and go!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in 1926 as a residence hotel, the original Surrey was home to many of New York's most eccentric celebrities. JFK, Bette Davis, Claudette Colbert, and other famous faces who recognized the allure of exceptional, discreet service. In re-creating The Surrey, we collaborated with acclaimed interior designer Lauren Rottet of Rottet Studio—to maintain the integrity of The Surrey’s history while modernizing New York's most intimate address. Rottet's inspiration was a New York City townhouse passed down through the generations. The Surrey is New York City’s only Relais & Chateaux boutique hotel, where discreet service allows guests to retreat from the public—and keep a low profile in an otherwise high profile lifestyle. The Surrey is a residential haven and luxury Upper East Side hotel getaway where guests access and revel in what makes New York City special—without compromising calm personal space. ... more less
