Crosby Street Hotel Rating: 4.5 Pearls
The Crosby Street Hotel opened in October 2009 on a quiet, cobblestoned street in SoHo. There's not a thread out of place in the luxurious, whimsically decorated rooms and public spaces.
The Surrey Rating: 4.5 Pearls
After a $60 million renovation in 2009, the Surrey reestablished itself as a top contendory in the New York luxury hotel market, and everything is immaculate -- the guest rooms, bathrooms, and common areas were all redone.
Smyth Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls
Smyth opened in March 2009, and the property is still clean and unblemished. Smyth's developers tore down the previous building on the property and started fresh, so tiles sparkle, paint is smooth, and furniture is unchipped; even the gym carpets are still in mint condition.
The Plaza Rating: 5.0 Pearls
The New York Palace Rating: 4.5 Pearls
Hilton Garden Inn Times Square Rating: 3.5 Pearls
Completely renovated in 2008, the Hilton Garden Inn has new fixtures and is very well-maintained. For a clean -- and affordable -- hotel in Times Square, this Hilton is an excellent option.
