Upper East Side Hotels

Leafy streets, doorman buildings with pine-green awnings and world-class museums characterize one of New York City’s most upscale neighborhoods. The hotels follow suit, like the opulent Pierre, where even the elevators are operated by white-gloved attendants, and the Art Deco Sherry-Netherland. But, the Upper East Side wasn’t always so ritzy, and you can still find some affordable hotels here and there that reflect its more modest beginnings. The Upper East Side is also home to the famous Museum Mile, so staying here puts you within walking distance to some of the world’s greatest museums. And, like other neighborhoods in Manhattan, subway and bus lines trundle through all day and night, so you’re never more than a short ride away from the rest of the island.

Home to the world’s most expensive real estate, the Upper East Side oozes luxury, from its manicured streets and perfume-scented boutiques to its preponderance of tiny bow-sporting dogs. The best Upper East hotels share this upper-crust breeding – many have been hosting the crème de la crème of society for decades. Top luxury hotels include the Carlyle, which harks back to the grand old days of New York City, with a supper club-cabaret that has headlined everyone from Eartha Kitt to Woody Allen. In the mood for a Bellini? Head to the Sherry-Netherland, crowned by a Gothic minaret, and home to the famous Harry Cipriani restaurant, which serves classic Venetian cuisine and its signature Bellini cocktails. Other luxe favorites include the European-style Hotel Plaza Athénée, awash in Italian marble, classic furnishings and handpainted murals; the discreet Mark Hotel, which is a top choice among celebrities who want to escape the prying eyes of the paparazzi; and, of course, the legendary Pierre. But the Upper East Side isn’t just the domain of hoity-toity hotels. The neighborhood also reveals plenty of more affordable hotels, like the Bentley. This gracious hotels lies slightly off the beaten track – it looms over the East River – but the views from the spacious rooms are superb, and the prices are considerably lower than elsewhere in the Upper East Side. Other mid-range hotels include the Marmara Manhattan Hotel, which also accommodates longer-term visitors with one-bedroom suites equipped with small kitchens. The stylish Affinia Gardens often offers excellent weekend deals. The perks of staying in the Upper East Side are numerous, including easy access to Central Park and Museum Mile, which is home to some of the world’s most renowned museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Posh Madison Avenue is lined with high-end boutiques, while Lexington Avenue features more wallet-friendly shops. The neighborhood is also well connected to the rest of Manhattan with a number of subway and bus lines.
