When you go to New York City, you can stay in many different places. In fact, there are so many options that it can be hard to choose. And while there’s nothing wrong with staying in one of the city’s famous high-rise buildings or a cozy Airbnb for a night or two, we’d argue that the best places to stay in NYC are its boutique hotels.

Boutique hotels are usually smaller (all of the ones on this list have fewer than 200 rooms, and some have far less than 50), with decor that includes vintage furniture, modern art, and handcrafted touches. And then there are the amenities. Free bike rentals and rooftop bars with custom cocktails are common at boutique hotels, which offer a level of personalized service that big hotels don’t always have.

Here are some of the best boutique hotels in New York City, from Brooklyn and Queens to Soho and Midtown. Some of them have hard-to-find features like private hot tubs, views of the Empire State Building, and open-air courtyards in the middle of the city.

46 Best Boutique Hotels in New York City

1. Ace Hotel New York

Ace Hotel New York

The Ace Hotel New York is right in the middle of everything and caters to people who are creative, hungry, young, adventurous, and interested in art. During the day, the lobby is a great place to work together. There are long tables with plenty of plugs and desk lamps. At night, there are a lot of things to do here, from shopping to an irresistible bar to an old-fashioned photo booth and a growing art space. Let’s just say that you’ll never be bored or thirsty at the hotel. You might be able to live here, let alone take a vacation here. When you’re not working, you can get to Times Square in a few minutes by subway, and there are a desk open 24 hours a day, so don’t worry about the time.

2. Boutique Hotels: The Mark

The Mark’s Jacques Grange-designed interiors and Upper East Side luxury make it the perfect place for celebrities to get ready for the Met Gala. You can ride one of the hotel’s custom bikes or a black-and-white-striped pedicab to the nearby 5th Avenue boutiques, but you don’t have to leave the hotel to enjoy the best in high-end shopping, pampering, and dining. The Mark has room service from the famous chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, sweets from Ladurée, a salon by Frédéric Fekkai, and penthouse guests can shop at Bergdorf Goodman any time of day or night.

3.Boutique Hotels:  11 Howard

SoHo used to be home to the artists’ lofts that made Downtown New York famous in the 20th century. Since the turn of the century, SoHo has steadily become more upscale and more international. Both of these trends can be seen in 11 Howard, which combines modern Scandinavian design with a version of luxury hospitality that is more open and less showy. It’s the first time architect Anda Andrei has worked on a hotel project on his own. For decades, he designed boutique hotels for Ian Schrager that broke new ground. 11 Howard, which was made with the help of Danish designers Space Copenhagen, doesn’t have the kind of bling that some New York hotels are known for. This one also backs up its egalitarian beliefs with money. They call it “conscious hospitality,” which means they give a portion of their earnings to charities like the Global Poverty Project.

4.The Whitby Hotel, Midtown Manhattan

The Whitby Hotel, Midtown Manhattan

The Whitby Hotel brings some traditional British charm to the streets of Midtown Manhattan. This New York boutique hotel was designed by Kit Kemp. His rooms are full of his signature touches, like wild floral wallpaper, furniture with a mix of patterns that are meant to clash, and sustainable RikRak toiletries that make it easy to relax in the walk-in showers. Downstairs, in the charming guest rooms, you’ll find a mix of gold sunburst mirrors and decorative china that reminds you of your aunts who were always different. You can have afternoon tea in the orange-walled Orangery or watch a movie on the big screen in the hotel’s own theater.

5.The Sherry Netherland

In a famous Central Park hotel, you can stay in rooms of the highest quality and get service like in Europe. The Sherry-Netherlands elaborate Gothic minaret gives the Midtown Manhattan skyline a touch of drama and history. The entrance to this Central Park hotel is marked by a clock on the sidewalk on Fifth Avenue.

This hotel is right across from the Grand Army Plaza and the main entrance to Central Park. It is in the middle of Midtown Manhattan on Fifth Avenue. It has places to eat on-site and free Wi-Fi.

In each room at The Sherry Netherland, there is a flat-screen TV and an iPod docking station. Each room has a high ceiling and a bathroom made of marble. When you get there, you’ll get a bouquet of flowers and a box of Belgian chocolates. Every room comes with a Keurig coffee machine and free soft drinks and water.

This New York hotel has a gym with mirrors from floor to ceiling. There are services like concierge and ticket sales.

The Sherry-Netherland is a 10-minute walk from Rockefeller Center. Also, you can walk to the Museum of Modern Art from the hotel in just 10 minutes.

6.The High Line

When it comes to New York City boutique hotels, this one is great for people who like to read. The upscale High Line Hotel was built in 1895 on a property in Chelsea that was once owned by Clement Clarke Moore, who wrote “The Night Before Christmas.” The building was originally meant to house students at the General Theological Seminary.

Expect old-fashioned elegance in each room. Hardwood floors, well-made furniture, and old things give a room a classic elegance. Large windows let in lots of light and offer beautiful views of the High Line Park or the hotel’s Parisian-style courtyard.

7. Walker Hotel Greenwich Village

The Walker Hotel is a 113-room building with a red-brick facade, stained-glass windows, and Art Deco-style details. It has a lot of personalities. The property’s decor is a nod to the early days of Greenwich Village, when artists, writers, and other creative people lived there. Plus, you can walk to Washington Square Park in 10 easy minutes, and dogs are welcome there.

8. The Beekman

During your stay at the Beekman Hotel, you’ll keep going back to one thing: its beautiful Victorian atrium, which is nine stories tall and topped with a beautiful Places pyramidal skylight. Most of the 287 rooms in the hotel have balconies that look out on them, and you’ll always be able to see that beautifully remodeled centerpiece in your mind. It has to be one of the most beautiful pieces of architecture in the Financial District.

The Beekman Hotel is in a building that was built in 1881. It was one of the first skyscrapers in Manhattan. It had been neglected for years, but Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel Architects did a beautiful job bringing it back to its former glory. In September 2016, it opened as The Beekman, a Thompson Hotel.

Don’t think the wrong thing, though. Staying here is nothing like spending the weekend in a boring museum. Even though many of the rooms have original antiques and are decorated with a lot of attention to history, the hotel is full of modern art and surreal themes that show that this very impressive building doesn’t take itself too seriously.

The two busy restaurants in the hotel bring in a stylish crowd that keeps the public areas of the hotel busy. Every night of the week, both Fowler & Wells and Augustine will have full rooms (try the whisky burger). The good news is that the concierge can help you make reservations at both. After a lively dinner, unwind with a drink at The Bar Room next door. It’s in the perfect spot at the bottom of that beautiful atrium.

9. Merrion Row Hotel and Public House

Top of the Rock, Radio City Music Hall, and Grand Central Terminal are all places that people like to visit near the property. The Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, the Chrysler Building, and Central Park are all close to the hotel. 12.7 km away is LaGuardia famous Airport, which is the closest airport. The airport is 26.5 km from John F. Kennedy International Airport.

10. The Standard East Village

Since a long time ago, the East Village has had a problem: there are many places to eat and drink, but nowhere to stay. In recent years, a building boom in the southeast corner of Manhattan has made room for a new wave of modern boutique hotels, some of which, like the Standard, East Village, are located in gleaming modern high-rises.

Even though it’s in the middle of a low-rise district, it’s hard to miss the Standard’s tall curves and angles. From inside the rooms, you can see the East Village rooftops, downtown bridges, and classic uptown skyscrapers in new ways. The windows go from floor to ceiling, and the rooms have high-end amenities like huge HD screens, sound systems that work with Bluetooth, mosaic-tiled bathrooms, and three different kinds of bathrobes. All of this, and the rooms are warm, too. They are bright and have softly retro furniture and beds with fluffy down pillows.

11. The Greenwich Hotel, TriBeCa

Robert De Niro owns part of The Greenwich. He is a big deal in the neighborhood’s art scene because he helped start the Tribeca Film Festival. The 88 rooms are all different and have a well-traveled, tropics-meets-bohemian style. Moroccan tiles, Tibetan rugs, and plush English leather sofas give the rooms a unique look. High-definition TVs, Bose Bluetooth speakers, and high-end services like the use of the hotel’s house car and personalized grocery shopping add a touch of modernity to the hotel. The star treatment doesn’t stop there. Downstairs is a Zen-style underground pool where you can relax with plant-based treatments at the Shibui Spa and end the day with creative Italian dishes at Locanda Verde.

12. The Mercer Hotel

The Mercer has 74 guest rooms in the heart of Soho. Artists, actors, and musicians love it because it feels like a real NYC loft. You’ll quickly fall in love with this small hotel, which is in a Romanesque Revival building and has a design that is all about subtle elegance and high-end neutrals.

Expect great service from a team of experts who know how to take care of wealthy people from all over the world.

13. The Bowery Hotel

The Bowery Hotel has always been a famous place in the East Village. It’s the kind of place where it’s not unusual to see a famous person having a drink in the lobby. When it’s time to turn in for the night, you won’t be disappointed. The 135 rooms on the property have antique furniture and a unique feel.

14. Crosby Street Hotel

Crosby Street Hotel

Getting to the Crosby Street Hotel can be hard: you have to stumble into the modern glass-and-brick building off the pretty cobblestone streets of Soho and into a warm lobby with white walls, woods, and modern art, sculptures, and photographs. The Drawing Room is a lounge for guests only where you can get drinks and small bites. It has fireplaces, comfortable couches and chairs, and a door that leads to a private garden. Add to that a friendly and helpful staff, and you have everything you need for a great stay. We think you’ll make it.

Crosby gives a lot of information. The lobby level is full of bright colors, such as red, orange, blue, green, and pink. The design is neat and orderly, but it also has a lot of style. When you walk into the hotel, there’s an air of sophistication that stays with you throughout. The Crosby Bar, the hotel’s restaurant, is right off the lobby. It’s as cozy as you can imagine: dimly lit with striped bench seating; colorful round chandeliers hang all over and balance out a lot of oranges and browns, which are used in patterns and always go well together. The restaurant had a seasonal menu, and we were lucky enough to try the milk chocolate brûlée with toasted house-made marshmallows and gingerbread men. It was amazing. The restaurant also has a door that leads to a garden outside. What’s great about the Crosby is that there are many places to sit outside on warm days. You’ll have a lot of room to move around between the sculpture garden and the terrace.

15. Lowell Hotel

The Lowell is a boutique hotel with a quiet European style and an intimate feel. It is uniquely decorated with beautiful antique furniture and original art. Many of the suites have private terraces and fireplaces that use wood.

The Lowell building has 17 floors and was built in 1927. It is 321.8 meters from Central Park. 50 meters separates the property from Madison Avenue. The house is 161 meters away from Fifth Avenue.

Within 35 meters of the property, there are high-end clothing stores like Hermès, Barneys New York, and Roberto Cavalli Store. The hotel is 1.8 km from Lincoln Center and 1.3 km from Carnegie Hall.

16. The Marlton Hotel

In the world of boutique hotels, what was once old is now cool again. In New York, Sean MacPherson’s hotels were among the first to move away from sleek, futuristic minimalism and toward something with a bit more romance from the past. So the Greenwich Village hotel Marlton, which is 100 years old and has had guests like Jack Kerouac and Julie Andrews, is perfectly in character.

It also has a lot of personalities. There are always bigger, nicer, and more expensive hotels in this town. The only way out of this arms race is to be yourself. The Marlton is fancy enough in a Parisian-style way, and it’s also priced reasonably so that a wider range of people can go there. It’s been called a “baby Bowery,” which isn’t too far off. Think of the Bowery Hotel on a smaller scale and with a more residential feel, and you’re almost there.

17. Mr. C Seaport, Downtown Manhattan

The furniture in Mr. C Seaport is made of baby pink and sapphire-blue velvet and has a mix of rich teak veneers and golden accents. The whole place has a luxuriously sophisticated feel. It is a great boutique hotel for families in Manhattan. Little C amenities like a cute teddy bear named Mr. C, a coloring book, and free home-made cookies with Nutella make traveling with kids less stressful. The rooms are sleek and comfortable, with dark colors, 50-inch TVs, and rain showers. You can eat authentic Italian food like tagliolini with shrimp and zucchini at the cherry blossom-filled Bellini Restaurant, or you can go to Wall Street Plaza to enjoy happy hour at one of the themed bars.

18. The Hoxton, Williamsburg

This beautiful Williamsburg boutique hotel is a branch of the British brand The Hoxton. There are hints of the factory’s past all over the property, like the subway-style bathrooms and the raw concrete finishes in the bedrooms. Guests can get a great night’s sleep in the cozy rooms, which have big beds and high-quality Dusen Dusen sheets.

Klein’s, a local hangout inside the hotel, serves American brunch classics. With Brooklyn right outside and views of the famous Manhattan skyline, this is as New York as it gets.

The hotel’s braided wood doors lead to a room with high ceilings, a rich chocolate color scheme, and basket-woven balustrades on the mezzanine level. Traditional Zen touches can be found everywhere: Japanese soaking tubs invite you to relax in the bathrooms, Tibetan wool rugs add a cozy touch, and potted plants bring in the outdoors.

23. 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge

1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge has a farm-to-table restaurant, a spa, and a cozy movie room to give guests the full resort experience. But if we had to pick a favorite place in the hotel, it would be the rooftop pool, which has a great view of the East River and the skyline of Manhattan.
