5 star hotels in New York

First impressions of New York can seem like a movie on fast-forward. As the yellow cab whisks you along its fabled streets, you’ll be mesmerized by the sheer pace of life. But beneath its frenetic surface lies a sophisticated city with world-class culture, cosmopolitan cuisine, and some of the best shopping on the planet. Prepare yourself for some serious pampering and get ready to roll out the red carpet for your New York City vacation.

Things to see in New York

Art-lovers will be spoilt for choice in New York. For starters, head to the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), where you can get up close to Van Gogh’s Starry Night and Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans, as well as priceless masterpieces by Picasso, Cézanne, and Hopper. Take a stroll around the Guggenheim Museum—the striking Frank Lloyd Wright building itself is worth a look, even if you don’t have time for a thorough tour of the galleries, and the third floor café has fabulous views over Central Park. Wander through Times Square to get a flavor of New York’s vibrant theater scene—go for the glamor of an old-school blockbuster musical, or check out the cutting edge of new writing in an off-Broadway playhouse. When the urge to shop strikes, it doesn’t get more New York than Macy’s, the largest department store in the world, packed with enough designer labels to satisfy your inner Carrie Bradshaw!

Five-star hotels in New York

With so many New York hotels to choose from, there’s no need to opt for the first available vacancy. If you’re looking for something a little upscale, you’ll find a high level of service and a range of convenient facilities at the city’s wide range of 5-star hotels. A typical five star hotel in New York City may offer amenities such as a spa, fitness center, gourmet restaurant, and even on-site parking. Many hotels in this category are housed in eye-catching historic buildings with a unique style that will make your Big Apple break extra-memorable.

Where to stay in New York

For easy access to theaterland without the crowds, look around Madison Square Park which has some of the best hotels in New York City. This area, known as the Flatiron District for its proximity to New York’s oldest skyscraper, is now a prime residential neighborhood incorporating two of the city’s official Historic Districts. The financial district of lower Manhattan offers the chance to sample the beating pulse of Wall Street or the scenic tranquility of Battery Park, with many of its high-rise hotels providing stunning views of New York Harbor. The trendy East Village is characterized by its stylish mix of old and new architecture, upscale boutiques, and award-winning restaurants.

How to get to New York

International flights arrive at either JFK or Newark airports, while LaGuardia connects the city with the rest of the US. All three airports have reliable public transportation links to downtown Manhattan. If you’re carrying heavy luggage or can’t wait to start exploring, consider pre-booking a private driver service to whisk you directly to your hotel. Getting around this civilized, compact city is easy, and you’re never far from one of its iconic yellow cabs. New York taxi drivers have a reputation for being the friendliest in the world—you may even find yourself in a seat once occupied by Frank Sinatra!
