Where to Stay in New York

Getting engaged is a truly special moment in both your lives and you’ll want to make sure your accommodation lives up to the romance of the occasion. Here are a few great hotel choices, whether you are looking for sheer elegance and luxury, bohemian culture, or an uptown boutique hotel.

Hotels with classic luxury and elegance

To really get the feel of old style New York, stay in one of its famous luxury hotels. The Waldorf Astoria is one of America’s most prominent hotels and was originally an amalgamation of two buildings located in the current location of the Empire State Building, before it moved to its current Park Lane address.

For a Fifth Avenue alternative, nothing says style like The Plaza, which is frequented by the rich and famous. It retains its old world splendor and tradition despite recent multi-million dollar renovations. The Pierre is a less well known haven on Fifth Avenue, offering the ultimate in service and exclusivity.

Hotels with a bohemian artistic vibe

Hotel Chelsea is the ideal choice if you are looking to embrace the cultural heritage of New York. Bob Dylan, and Jack Kerouac both called this hotel home, along with a whole host of other artists and intellectuals. It has a laid back bohemian vibe and is located in the Chelsea district, close to the Empire State Building.

For a historic hotel in the Theater District, The Algonquin provides a gathering point for a diverse mix of New York’s cultural and artistic elite. An intimate hotel, well known for its hospitality, the Algonquin was the literary birth place of the New Yorker magazine.

Boutique hotels in uptown New York

If you’d prefer a stylish modern hotel away from the bustle of downtown Manhattan, On the Avenue is a cool, urban boutique hotel on the Upper West Side. Across town on the fashionable Upper East Side, The Lowell and The Carlyle, both on or around Madison Avenue, offer exclusive accommodation in landmark buildings.
