The Plaza

The Plaza Rating: 5.0 Pearls

The century-old, 282-room Plaza is a New York landmark. A $400 million overhaul in 2008 gave the huge rooms gold-plated bathroom fixtures, but it also converted most rooms overlooking Central Park into privately owned residences. Still, the exceptional spa and 24-hour butler service make it worth the splurge.

The St. Regis New York

The St. Regis New York Rating: 5.0 Pearls

The grand, century-old St. Regis is known for its extraordinary service -- rivaled only by that of the Plaza -- but the hotel has many other outstanding features, including 229 elegant rooms with great amenities; a world-class spa, and a great location on Fifth Avenue. While it lacks the pool and Central Park views of the Mandarin Oriental, a famed Bloody Mary at the King Cole Bar more than compensates.

The New York Palace

The New York Palace Rating: 4.5 Pearls

One of the most recognizable and respected luxury properties in New York City, The Palace lives up to its hype. The 909-room hotel completed a massive renovation in 2013, and features numerous property features, including a large, modern fitness center, a fine dining restaurant, and two intimate lounges. Tourists, business travelers, and celebrities alike stay in its spacious, sophisticated rooms, and it's convenient Midtown location, across the street from St. Patrick's Cathedral and within walking distance of numerous sights, is also a major draw. The lack of a full spa at such a large hotel is surprising, however, and there's an annoying Wi-Fi fee for guests not staying in the Tower suites. Nonetheless, The Palace remains a grand New York icon; Tiffany stained glass windows and gilded ceilings remain from its days as a private mansion.

The Lowell

The Lowell Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The Lowell is a high-end boutique known for its top-notch service and gorgeous individually decorated rooms. It is located in the tony Upper East Side, a block from Central Park, and a short walk from designer boutiques along Madison and Fifth avenues. Its 72 rooms and suites have elegant, stylish decor and great amenities, including Bulgari toiletries, flat-screen TVs with movies on demand, and free Wi-Fi. Most units also have wood-burning fireplaces, full kitchens, and terraces. The two solid on-site restaurants and the fitness center are all perks, but the hotel does not offer spa services.

The Peninsula New York

The Peninsula New York Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The 239-room Peninsula has small TVs in the standard rooms, but the indoor pool, superb gym (free workout gear, organic teas, and a sauna and steam room), widely praised spa and salon, and in-room fax machines make it a fine choice for a quiet, classically luxurious hotel. And for designer shopping, its 5th Avenue location is ideal.

The Gotham Hotel

The Gotham Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Gotham, one of Manhattan’s skinniest hotels, opened its doors in 2009 in the same spot that was once endearingly known as the Gotham Book Mart. The 66-room boutique pays homage to its former tenant through the name, of course, but also through the sophisticated bookish decor. The cheerful lobby has a welcoming feel -- even more so when guests are offered a glass of wine from one of the trendily dressed staff members (no uniforms here). With the cozy Tenpenny restaurant and bar in the rear, Gotham attracts regular corporate types for the ultra-cool, modern rooms. Every room comes with a balcony or patio, and guests enjoy free Wi-Fi and use of the neighborhood sports club.

The Lexington New York City

The Lexington New York City Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 725-room Lexington offers a stylish and luxurious stay in Manhattan’s Midtown East neighborhood. Featuring gorgeous Art Deco design throughout the property, the Lexington impresses immediately with its expansive lobby, which features a posh bar, ample seating, and a carefully curated collection of art. Rooms feature flat-screen TVs, iHome docking stations, Keurig coffee makers, and marble bathrooms with Lather toiletries. On-site dining options include the Chinese restaurant S. Dynasty, a neighborhood favorite, and Raffles, a more casual diner-style eatery. All in all, it's a good four-pearl value -- guests will be hard-pressed to find another hotel near Grand Central offering this level of style for the price. Just note that some rooms are small and those on lower floors may experience street noise.

Fitzpatrick Grand Central Hotel

Fitzpatrick Grand Central Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This charming, upscale Midtown East hotel -- located across the street from Grand Central Terminal --has classic, understated decor in the 155 rooms and the public spaces. The hotel’s Irish roots are subtly felt, with the restaurant serving traditional pub fare in a cozy setting. Features are few, however; travelers who prefer having a fitness and business center on-site may want to compare rates with the nearby Omni Berkshire Place.

Park Lane Hotel

Park Lane Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Park Lane is an aging luxury hotel living off of its past prestige and Central Park location. On the positive side, the common spaces are still grand, if a little old-fashioned, the restaurant has huge arched windows overlooking the park, and some rooms have gorgeous park views. But rates are high for what you get. Rooms have classic style that's a bit generic and are showing wear and tear; the bathrooms are similarly unexceptional. (We found an empty mini-fridge oddly placed under the bathroom sink.) Harry's New York Bar (named for real estate developer Harry Helmsley) has a dark, clubby ambiance, but cocktails are incredibly expensive, even for New York. Elevator waits can be very long, and the service feels unpolished for a hotel in this price range.

The Waldorf Astoria

The Waldorf Astoria Rating: 4.0 Pearls

A Midtown East icon, the 1,300-room Waldorf Astoria comes with some of New York's best (or at least most expensive) spa services, fitness facilities, restaurants, and bars. Rooms are elegant and feature the high-end amenities expected of a hotel of this category, and suites have palatial black-and-white marble bathrooms with separate showers and soaking tubs. However, Standard Rooms are small for the price, and there’s a fee for Wi-Fi. The dress code and antique decor aren't for everyone, though the cinematic history and unrivaled elegance might make the price tag well worth it.
