Upper East Side Hotels
25 E. 77th St., Upper East Side
Here, you’ll get access to New York fantasy life, from 24/7 exclusive access to Bergdorf Goodman, Laduree macaroons at the bedside, custom bikes for touring the city, and Jean Georges Vongerichten-crafted picnics to go (he runs the The Mark’s restaurant). The rooms themselves are gorgeous; revamped by Jacques Grange, the interiors are sleek, and just a little splashy.
28 E. 63rd St., Upper East Side
This luxurious Upper East Side hotel is rare for NYC, with rooms so plush and inviting that you’ll be tempted to stay indoors rather than leave to explore the city. This is even more true now that it has Majorelle and Jacques, its new restaurant and bar respectively, and an elegant Club Room–all of which are the result of a recent renovation. Michael Smith designed the re-envisioned spaces and most of the rooms in his classically elegant style. It's more of a home away from home than most of its buzzy counterparts.
35 E. 76th St., Upper East Side
Open for business since 1930, The Carlyle is just a few blocks from Central Park and Museum Mile. And you can’t check-out without stopping for a drink in Bemelmans Bar, which has murals painted by Ludwig Bemelmans, the author of the Madeline series. This is one of the best hotels in the world in terms of service, décor, comfort, and amenities.
