Fodor's Review

The best luxury boutique hotel north of 57th Street, this nine-story town house is a gem in a decidedly residential neighborhood. Though quite small, rooms are well-appointed with name-brand knickknacks, including Bulgari toiletries, iHome stations, free Wi-Fi, and Frette linens. The lobby feels comfortable and lived-in, with newspapers laid out on couches and a free 24-hour cappuccino machine. The generous complimentary breakfast uses a local bakery for all goods, and the hotel hosts a wine-and-cheese reception on weekday evenings. You can meet (sweaty) locals using a free pass to the nearby New York Sports Club.
