Sex and the City: Hip New York City hotels for each of the gals

If you've ever dreamed of living it up in Manhattan Sex and the City style, here's your chance: We’ve selected four hip hotels in downtown Manhattan to match the personalities of everyone’s favorite women about town. Whether you consider yourself a “Carrie” or a “Charlotte,” we’ve picked the perfect place — so pack your stiletto heels and get ready for a glamorous trip to the Big Apple.

The Bowery Hotel


The Carrie: Boho-chic luxury

The Bowery Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls
Categories: Boutique, Luxury, Romantic

Why it’s Carrie: The hotel’s vintage, boho-chic design reminds us of Carrie’s funky fashion sense. The hotel redefined class in a neighborhood where punk rock and squalor once ruled, and like Carrie, it was an instant classic.

The Standard High Line


The Samantha: A mod hot spot

The Standard High Line Rating: 4.0 Pearls
Categories: Boutique, Luxury, Romantic

Why it’s Samantha: This sexy hotel packs a lot of va va voom — exhibitionist-friendly windows (you can see in from the outside) in the mod rooms; groundbreaking design; and three ultra-trendy night spots. Plus, it’s in the Meatpacking District, where Samantha moved after disapproving tenants drove her out of her old apartment.

Crosby Street Hotel


The Charlotte: Sweet and proper

Crosby Street Hotel Rating: 4.5 Pearls
Categories: Boutique, Luxury, Romantic

Why it’s Charlotte: Part of a small London-based hotel chain, the Crosby Street’s sophisticated, British-inspired style is perfect for proper Charlotte — and it’s near the SoHo gallery where she worked.

Smyth Hotel


The Miranda: Understated and unpretentious

Smyth Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls
Categories: Boutique

Why it’s Miranda: Just like Miranda, the Smyth delivers style and substance without pretension. Its clean-lined, no-fuss design reminds us of Miranda’s cool and collected demeanor.
