5 High-end hotels
1) The Mark
For the high-minded design connoisseur. A hotel with an edgy, posh design by Jacques Grange situated in Manhattan’s most elegant neighborhood. Providing care and services beyond the 5-star standard, private local phone numbers can be assigned, or a car with driver, and lucky kids can be treated to indoor tents and cookies from The Mark, Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s restaurant.
2) The Pierre
If you’re looking for timeless, old-world luxury. Featured in many films, history and beauty is what you’ll find here. See the newly restored murals in The Rotunda ( find Jackie O.). Off the lobby is the Two E Bar, one of the classiest, undiscovered rooms in NYC great to meet up for a cocktail, snack, or afternoon tea. Rooms are sedately decked out.
If you love a fantasy and shopping. Inspired by Jean Cocteau’s La Belle et la Bête, this hotel lures you in through a dramatic courtyard of ivy-clad, metal framework. Its glass-roof restaurant is highlighted by sunlight flooding its groupings of chandeliers. Special services include personalized shopping experiences and in-room custom suit design.
4) William Vale Hotel
If you want to do Williamsburg in style. A spectacular, futuristic design by Albo Liberis perches dramatically above Brooklyn. Every single room features work of local artists, and has a balcony with unobstructed views. The rooftop bar is the new hot spot, capitalizing on its height with viewing scopes stationed around the space for an even closer look.
5) Crosby Street Hotel
If you are looking for homey elegance. The scale and peacefulness of this eco-conscious hotel is immediately felt upon entering. Newly built, each room is uniquely styled by London designer Kit Kemp and has industrial oversized windows to bring in the light. Crosby Bar is a popular NY meeting spot for cocktails and afternoon tea.
