The 11 Best Luxury Hotels in New York City

1) Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park

The Ritz-Carlton luxury establishment is housed in a historical building near the iconic Central Park in Manhattan. This renowned hotel offers various room and suite types, seamlessly blending old-world charm with sophisticated contemporary touches.

The most famed area of Manhattan’s Ritz-Carlton is undoubtedly the Royal Suite (priced at a staggering 30,000 USD per night!), over three times larger than an average apartment in this part of New York City.

2) The Mark

The Mark Hotel in Manhattan is a bastion of unparalleled luxury. This five-star establishment is famed for hosting a plethora of celebrities and billionaires seeking exceptional and refined service. Every inch of The Mark, nestled in the Upper East Side and just a block away from Central Park, exudes exclusivity in every detail.

Of particular note is the Mark Penthouse suite – extraordinarily spacious, boasting five bedrooms, six bathrooms, two powder rooms, a library, a grand dining room, and a panoramic terrace! It ranks among the most opulent suites not only in the city but across the nation.

This boutique hotel features an artistic design, spacious rooms adorned with ebony and sycamore furnishings, and marble bathrooms equipped with mini flat-screen TVs. The Mark Restaurant by Jean Georges offers European and international delicacies, while Mark’s Bar serves up signature cocktails. 

With amenities like the Frederic Fekkai Salon and business traveler services including laptop rentals and wireless printing, The Mark stands as one of New York’s premier luxury hotels.

3) The Plaza

The Plaza is unquestionably New York City’s most renowned hotel, etched in the annals of literature and cinema. Since its inauguration in 1907, the hotel has become a luxury landmark, epitomizing New York City hospitality and hosting notable figures in society.

The Palm Court is celebrated for its opulent afternoon tea, featuring golden champagne and macarons. Also worth experiencing is the elegant Guerlain spa, offering exceptional wellness treatments, not to mention its sumptuous rooms, including the lively pink space dedicated to Eloise, designed by Betsey Johnson.

The Plaza’s Royal Suite is regal, equipped with private elevator access, a grand living room with a baby grand piano, a chef’s kitchen, a spacious dining table, three bedrooms, and a personal butler to ensure impeccable service.

4) Aman New York

Aman New York stands as one of the most luxurious additions to Manhattan’s hospitality scene, an urban oasis featuring a zen-style spa, exceptional restaurants, and an underground jazz club, all housed within the renowned Crown Building. It promises an exclusive and elegant sojourn.

Guests are captivated by the magnificent suites, adorned with décor inspired by Southeast Asian architecture, marking Aman as a favored luxury hotel in New York City. Prices are not publicly listed, yet given the lavish amenities, a significant cost can be anticipated.

The culinary scene at Aman New York is enriched by its restaurants - Aman, Arva, and Nama, each celebrating Italian and Japanese traditions with a menu abundant in seasonal and local dishes. The hotel's spa, equipped with two luxurious private Spa Houses, ensures a cutting-edge wellness experience.

5) Baccarat Hotel

The Baccarat Hotel is a sparkling gem amongst Midtown accommodations, renowned not just for its meticulous aesthetics but also for the extraordinary experiences it affords. Particularly famed is the “Crystal Tea” at 3,000 USD, hosted in the Grand Salon. This glamorous afternoon affair features caviar, ganache-filled cakes presented on a three-tiered crystal stand, champagne, and a commemorative tea set.

Beyond the rooms, the splendid Baccarat Suite amazes with space and opulent comforts, including marble bathrooms stocked with La Mer products, cashmere blankets, and naturally, exquisite crystal. Every room at New York’s Baccarat Hotel flaunts refined Baccarat crystal elements, marking its distinctive allure.

6) Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown

At Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown, first-class service is a badge of honor. Every guest is treated as a VIP, with pampering at the wellness center, gastronomic delights from chef Wolfgang Puck, and excellent evening service.

Guests can stay in the expansive Empire Suite, boasting a spectacular city view. The lavish experience, albeit costly, includes helicopter transfers from the airport, breakfast in bed, in-room massages, and more, rightfully placing it amongst New York’s famed hotels.






7) Whitby Hotel

The Whitby Hotel possesses the charm and style that make it a favorite amongst celebrities, jet-setters, and fashion icons. Nestled in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, the Whitby Hotel is a celebration of contemporary art and design.

Each room is individually designed, offering splendid views of the Manhattan skyline. Interiors are the creations of Kit Kemp, a prominent figure in the design and fashion world, whose artistry has helped elevate the Whitby to one of New York's most enchanting luxury hotels.

Within the establishment is the Whitby Bar & Restaurant, a rich, colorful, and airy room with high ceilings, a stunning 9-meter pewter counter, and beautifully upholstered benches. It opens to a conservatory with vaulted ceilings and a skylight, flooding the space with natural light, a feature not to be missed.

8) Hôtel Barrière Fouquet’s

Located just blocks from Hudson River Park, Hôtel Barrière Fouquet’s brings Parisian charm to Tribeca, at the heart of New York City. The hotel exudes chic elegance, adorned with a pastel color palette dominated by lilac and almond green, accentuating the refined fabrics, wood paneling, and Art Deco furnishings.

Behind the glass and brick facade lies a small slice of Paris, featuring a classic brasserie, a sophisticated bar, the serene Spa Diane Barrière, a glamorous cinema, and residential-style rooms and suites, all designed by Martin Brudnizki with unmistakable French flair.

The hotel, rightfully acclaimed in New York, hosts several restaurants, all under the expertise of Michelin-starred chef Pierre Gagnaire. Don’t miss the Brasserie Fouquet’s, high-quality vegetarian cuisine at Par Ici, and the 1920s ambiance at Titsou Bar.

9) The Ned

The Ned exudes a boutique atmosphere, boundless charm, and holds many prestigious accolades. It’s essential to know that booking a room doesn’t guarantee access to some of the more exclusive spaces. The solution? Opt for the Duplex Terrace Suite, the building’s largest and most antique-rich accommodation, starting at 6,000 USD (surprisingly reasonable by this list’s standards), which provides entry to Ned’s Club Downstairs.

Membership to the Club allows guests to frequent a lounge with live music, a bar, and a library (hidden from public view by heavy curtains). Guests also receive priority seating at Cecconi's and Little Ned, the sophisticated 1920s-style speakeasy, ensuring a comprehensive experience in this luxurious New York hotel.

10) Mandarin Oriental

The Mandarin Oriental holds a well-deserved reputation for its impeccable style and detail-oriented service. The hotel features a renowned spa, a gourmet restaurant, and breathtaking views of Manhattan from every room. It’s unsurprising that a stay in this iconic Columbus Circle building comes at a substantial cost (870 USD just for entry).

Noteworthy is Suite 5000, equipped with every conceivable comfort and luxury. Positioned on the 50th floor and designed to awe, it is beautifully decorated. Among its most striking features are the hanging artistic installation by Steven Naifeh at the entrance, a sparkling Swarovski crystal wall in the dining room, and a custom bathtub in the bathroom.

11) Ritz-Carlton NoMad

The Ritz-Carlton NoMad, one of New York City’s most renowned hotels, stands majestic at the intersection of 28th Street and Broadway. Inside the bright skyscraper, you’ll find two excellent restaurants by Michelin-starred chef José Andrés, a rooftop bar with stunning views, a luxurious spa with saunas and aromatherapy, a fitness center, a Club Lounge, and 250 impeccable rooms.

On the 37th floor, the incredible Ritz-Carlton Suite boasts separate living and dining spaces, a large bedroom, a media room, a nearly endless walk-in closet, a marble bathroom with a bathtub and dual rain showers, and a private fitness area with a Peloton bike.
