What makes a hotel qualify as one of the best in New York? At Oyster, we know that the "best hotel" is different for just about everyone. For some, the best hotel is the most luxurious, and for others, it's the one that offers the most for kids. We compiled lists of the best luxury hotels, value hotels, best kid-friendly hotels, most romantic hotels, "hidden gem" hotels, best honeymoon hotels, best business hotels, best hotel spas, best best party hotels, most pet-friendly hotels, most amazing hotel rooms, best hotel service, best hotel pools, hotels with notable restaurants, best bathrooms, and best hotel gyms. Don't have time to read all that? Not to fear. We selected one hotel from each list that bests its competitors (if only slightly). Below, we present the best hotels of New York.
