The offerings of luxury hotels from the hotel industry in the largest city of New York in the United States are much larger today. The city’s boundaries are pushed beyond Manhattan, with plenty of high-end locations in Brooklyn or even Queens. Many networks use the city as a laboratory, testing innovative concepts there before distributing them around the world. And some big groups like Hyatt are making a comeback multiplying new establishments at the forefront of luxury.

And the atmosphere here is definitely trendy and exclusive.

Andaz 5th Avenue — an elite place in New York
Following the success of the first Hyatt hotel on the Wall Street side, in the heart of Midtown on prestigious 5th Avenue, they decided to create another hotel under the Andaz brand. Not the most chic stretch of the famous avenue, but central enough to satisfy a wide clientele.
Hyatt has succeeded in its bid with Andaz anyway, striking a delicate balance between boutique charm and the functionality of a 4-star, service-oriented business hotel. From a beautiful interior signed by Toni Chi & Associates to ultra pro staff, to a few touches (art collection, bookstore, self check-in, free Wi-Fi, soft drinks offered in the minibar) to stand out from the traditional chain hotels, everything works great. The best of both worlds.
New York’s The Peninsula, a Hong Kong-based group of the same name, has since opened in 1988 as one of the city’s finest hotels, at the intersection of 5th Avenue and 57th Street, a stone’s throw from two of Manhattan’s other mythical establishments, St Regis and Plaza.
In addition to its ideal location, everything that has made Peninsula prestigious in Asia is here: spacious rooms, unobtrusive luxurious décor, impeccable amenities and exceptional quality of service, including for international clientele accustomed to 5 stars.
In the evening, enjoy a moment at the Salon de Ning Lounge Bar, which boasts spectacular views of 5th Avenue and is decorated in the style of 1930s Shanghai. Unwind in complete relaxation after an exhausting day in the world of the Peninsula Spa, which stretches over three floors and 3500 square meters, an absolute record in the city.
The Plaza — the legendary New York hotel
The most iconic New York hotel is the benchmark for luxury Manhattan hotels.
Woody Allen loved to drive characters from his films there, Carmela and Meadow Soprano came to tea at Soprano, some scenes from The Magnificent Gatsby take place in one of his suites and countless other references in American pop culture exist about this hotel. The hotel complex resembles a French Renaissance castle and is strategically located at the corner of 5th Avenue and 59th Street.
After changing owners and closing for several years, as part of a major renovation and investment of $ 400 million yet — Plaza has reopened its doors with more luxurious than ever conditions for its clients: 24-carat gold taps, butlers on each floor, Louis XV style furniture and the extensive Caudalie spa.
One of the most beautiful hotels in the city, conveniently housed in a 1930 building that has housed the legendary St. Moritz is one of those hotels where many people dream of spending at least one night. The hotel’s reputation is impeccable. It is ideally located on 59th Street, around the corner from all the luxury shops, Rockefeller Center, Lincoln Center and dozens of famous restaurants. And most importantly — in front of Central Park.
You will have a view of the park when you get out of bed in the morning — there is something magical about it. Everything else is just as perfect: rooms, amenities, services, spa. If you would like to indulge in this pleasure, do not forget to book a room with a view of the park.
