Quietest Hotels in New York City

View all New York City Hotels

New York is a loud city, and certain sections of it stay loud all night long. Getting a good night's sleep is never easy when it's interrupted by honking taxis and the shouts of drunken revelers. Anyone who needs peace and quiet when they head to bed should take a look at this list of our favorite quiet hotels in New York. Some are located in sleepy, residential neighborhoods; other just have genuinely soundproof windows; all will have light sleepers snoring in no time.

  1. Sleep is taken very seriously at the Benjamin. In addition to the "sleep concierge" and pillow menu, white noise machines, satin sleep masks, slippers, "sleep snacks," and a dream dictionary are available to make sure guests sleep through the endless sounds of the city.

  2. The Franklin's quiet, Upper East Side location is better known for its museums and stately apartment buildings than for any party-till-dawn nightlife.

  3. The Ritz's location at the southern tip of Manhattan, about 100 yards from New York Harbor, is tranquil during the day and downright -- almost eerily -- quiet at night. Since nearby dining and entertainment options are scarce, there won't be many late-night revelers around; the proximity to the Financial District makes this a popular choice for business travelers.

  4. Located on a quiet street in the Financial District, Gild Hall is far less of a "scene" hotel than its sister hotels in the Thompson brand. Its two bars are super-relaxed and mellow but still distinctly cool. Our reporter's room was right by the elevator but she never heard a sound.

  5. Located in Manhattan's largely residential, somewhat sleepy Murray Hill neighborhood, the mid-priced Affinia Shelburne is a quiet, low-key property.

  6. This quiet, relaxing hotel in Murrray Hill attracts mostly business travelers, so you'll be surrounded by guests trying to get sleep before work the next day -- not late-night partiers.

  7. Soundproof windows in the rooms shut out any outside noise at the Kitano, which isn't much. Located on an especially quiet, residential strip of snazzy Park Avenue in Murray Hill, Kitano caters to families and business travelers. Soft earth tones and hushed lounge music in the lobby enhance the hotel's relaxing, Japanese zen vibe.
