Why We Like It

Choosing a hotel in New York City is often a decision between space and value, but this hotel miraculously offers both. We love the all-suites design with generous living space, the Central Park views, and the big bathrooms with double-headed showers. The ground floor bar is a lively spot that attracts a stylish after-work crowd.

Two cities, one hotel name. Stylish and sophisticated, this hotel merges the flair of both its namesake cities in spacious, tech-savvy suites (that are some of the largest in New York) starting at 500-square feet. This property has over 500 rooms but somehow manages to deliver a boutique feel and personalized service.

In this all-suites property, Manhattan skyline and Central Park views are a highlight. All suites are residential in style and have a spacious separate living area with a large work desk. Soft hues of powder blue and cream give the rooms a serene feel.

When making a reservation, be sure to request if you want a Central Park view—they're all pretty great, but not all rooms face north towards the park. If you want to look at the park, you gotta ask.

Large bathrooms have mosaic tiles and a Waterworks double-headed shower.

The small, sharp lobby has a long front desk framed by an artistic map of the city of London. Fresh flowers and a fireplace decorate the space.

The small lobby opens into the spacious London Bar, serving hearty breakfasts in the morning and London-inspired pub fare (fish & chips, burgers) alongside cocktails in the evening. Room service is available 24 hours a day, and with such big suites, there’s actually space to enjoy in-room dining.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Dining is on the expensive side, especially at breakfast.

Getting Around

Located on 54th Street near 7th Avenue, this hotel is in a convenient spot for exploring Midtown Manhattan on foot, with several attractions—including Radio City Music Hall, Carnegie Hall, and the theater district—in easy walking distance. Subway access is nearby with the E, B, and D trains at 53rd Street/7th Avenue and the N, Q, R, and W trains at 57th Street/7th Avenue. Taxis and Uber are widely available in the neighborhood but traffic congestion is often a problem.


One of New York’s most consistently praised fine-dining experiences, Le Bernardin (4-minute walk), is around the corner from this hotel. Chef Eric Ripert serves excellent seafood at this Michelin-rated restaurant. Tucked behind a curtain in the lobby of Le Parker Meridien hotel, Burger Joint (4-minute walk) is a classic, affordable burger counter. The Modern (6-minute walk) overlooks the sculpture garden of the Museum of Modern Art and serves creative fare that reflects the artistic spirit of the museum.


It can be a challenge to find a finely mixed cocktail in the theater district, but Rum House (10-minute walk) is an exception to the rule. All visitors to New York must at least once get a drink at the storied King Cole Bar (8-minute walk) located inside the St. Regis hotel.
