About the Surrey Hotel
Located just steps from Central Park, The Surrey is a fashionable, Upper East Side hotel designed like a luxurious New York City townhouse, complete with eclectic artwork, chic furnishings and high-end amenities. The Surrey is only a few blocks from the Museum Mile, featuring the Guggenheim, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Museum of American Art and Design. Upscale shopping is nearby on Madison Avenue.
The Surrey’s 1926 Beaux-Arts brick building was once a residential hotel that housed notable figures like John F. Kennedy and actresses Claudette Colbert and Bette Davis. After a $60 million redesign led by acclaimed interior and architectural designer Lauren Rottet, The Surrey reopened in 2009 with a lobby featuring limestone walls, marble floors and a hand-tooled leather reception desk. Inspired by sepia photographs, Rottet chose a refined palette of charcoal, silver, cream, light tobacco and black that spreads throughout the lobby and into the hotel’s 190 salon guest rooms.
Salons and suites in The Surrey range from 350 to 2,127 square feet and include 30 one-bedroom suites, a Penthouse and a grand Presidential Suite with a private terrace, baby grand piano, two bedrooms, three bathrooms, kitchen, fireplace, sauna, claw-foot tub and an Apple MacBook. In every room, guests sleep in handcrafted Dux beds by Duxiana topped with Sferra bedding and bathe in Italian-marble bathrooms with products by Laura Tonatto of Turin.
Culture abounds in The Surrey with eclectic artwork around every corner. A wall-sized black-and-white portrait of Kate Moss (Kate, 2007) by Chuck Close greets guests as they enter the lobby. Other artwork includes photographs by American conceptual artist Jenny Holzer and custom-made furnishings such as a chaise lounge and armoire covered in poetry by London-based design firm Jimmie Martin. Each room has coffee-table fashion books and a complimentary copy of My City, My New York by Jeryl Brunner.
In the pet-friendly hotel, pets get pampered with a curated biscuit menu and box of treats from Bocce’s Bakery, a monogrammed dog bed, food and water bowl and concierge services including dog walking and grooming services. Guests can exercise in the state-of-the-art fitness room and participate in sunrise yoga on the English Rooftop Garden, a 17th-floor, 2,200-square-foot outdoor space overlooking Central Park where guests can relax and enjoy butler service from Café Boulud. Ultimate pampering sessions are available at Cornelia Spa, which offers tailored services, private rooms, a relaxation library – as well as an amuse-bouche, a small botanical tasting after each treatment.
The Surrey is ideal for art and culture connoisseurs and those looking for high-end amenities in an intimate, private hotel, such as celebrities, business executives, socialites, politicians and other notable figures.

The menu’s contemporary twist on classic French cuisine reflects owner Daniel Boulud’s love for seasonal delicacies and worldly flavors. Chic yet casual, the restaurant also offers seasonal wine tasting dinners and Sunday brunch.
On the lobby level, guests can sip signature cocktails created by mixologist Cameron Bogue. Inspired by Coco Chanel, the hotel’s designer Lauren Rottet created the bar to look like the inside of a Chanel makeup compact with black lacquered wood and white lacquer inlay framing the bar. Quilted walls, inspired by Chanel handbags, and white shark skin seating complete the lush space.
Guests can enjoy 24-hour room service from the Café Boulud menu.
