With so many choices of hotels and accommodations in New York City one is spoilt for choice but at the same time you can get overwhelmed as the city is constantly evolving meaning yesterday’s hot spot is today’s eye roll.

The New York City is different each time you visit, check out the list below that covers the best hotels to stay in the city. The price ranges from budget friendly to budget busting and everything else in between so there’s something for everyone!

The Carlyle-A Rosewood hotel

The Carlyle makes an impact at once as soon as you walk in with the gorgeous 59’s décor and its hardwood floors. It’s a beautiful suite with floor to ceiling windows which overlook the central park it’s also only ten minutes’ drive from Rockefeller. In general, the hotel’s proximity to parks, museums and the fifth avenue shopping is a plus for a sightseer. It’s located in Madison Avenue.

The Wagner at the Battery

It’s a luxury hotel located in lower (south) Manhattan on Liberty Island in New York harbour and nestled amid lush parks. The Wagner offers a great relaxing place in the middle of all the hassle and bustle of the city. The rooms are amazingly spacious relative to the NYC standards. You can enjoy unrivalled views of the Ellis Island and the fabulous Statue of liberty. It’s basically a walking distance to most attractions in lower Manhattan especially the National September 11 memorial and museum.

Intercontinental New York Barclay

This 1926 hotel has emerged as one of the most glamorous destinations after a recent renovation that embraces its past but at the same time considering the present, a great combination of the history incorporated in a 21 century luxury hotel. The hotel is located in Manhattan’s east side, a walking distance from Times Square and Rockefeller Centre.

Sofitel New York

Sleek elegance of new and modern amenities combined with delightful staff and above all a strategic central location, just a couple of minutes’ walk from Grand Central Station (which makes it easily accessible), 5th Avenue and Times Square. The rooms are well appointed and the lobby area cozy and warm. As you immediately enter the hotel you’ll be struck by how quite it is given that most New York hotels have a tendency to feel like a busy train station.

Archer Hotel

Though the rooms are albeit tight with space, there are a lot of tiny details that make up for that. It’s within earshot distance from the gorgeous Bryant Park and close enough to the action of Midtown on 38th street. You can enjoy a cocktail enhanced by astounding view of Empire state building from the spyglass rooftop bar which is absolutely breathtaking.

Park South Hotel

Top-notch friendly service, sweeping city view and dozens of photos of city’s most cherished parks hanged around the lobby area for the artistically-inclined guest’s and tourist’s perusal are just a few reasons the Park South Hotel should be your to-go hotel and accommodation in New York City. The hotel is located in Manhattan just about half a mile from Madison Square Park, the museum of Math and some other touristy attractions. The hotel has a modern feel, a design that incorporates mid-century art deco and incredibly airy lobby.

1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge

The hotel is located on the Hudson River, about five blocks from Brooklyn Bridge promenade. The most stupendous views of Brooklyn Bridge, a rooftop bar which beautifully exposes the Manhattan skyline, warm wood accents and leather furniture that contrast well with the floors make one Hotel Brooklyn Bridge an oasis in a concrete jungle. The hotel is a staple for the Dumbo community with amenities like spa, gym, rooftop lounge and quiet spaces for work or event planning making it a haven for both working class guests and tourists alike.

Hotel Hugo

When you need to wander the off-beaten-track of staying amidst New York City craziness, Hugo will offer that alternative. This hotel is perfectly located especially for a SoHo shopping experience it’s near China town and little Italy. The rooftop bar is nothing short of spectacular and the view of Hudson River is gigantic. In addition to contemporary setting, clean fresh and stylish rooms and the lobby the staff is remarkably friendly and informative.

The Chatwal

More often than not people prefer to stay away from the entire loud and busy midtown scene but if you’re looking for centrally located, elegant hotel and closest to the theater district then Chatwal is just the right choice for you. They offer a car service that can take you to theatres and restaurants within a 3 mile radius! Chatwal is a hidden gem and once you step into the threshold, you’ve stepped back into time of absolute glamour, an oasis of sophisticated luxury and modern art deco. The staff attentiveness is on another level and exceptionally friendly.

The hotel is located in the heart of midtown which is super convenient to sightsee most midtown major sites and close to the subway for easy accessibility. It’s a short walk to the central park and you can also easily walk to Times Square as well.

Andaz Wall Street

If you have any business on Wall Street, there’s no better position and this hotel should be your regular. It’s a little tucked away but close to Dead Rabbit. The staff is friendly and helpful plus the rooms are quite spacious given that New York Hotel rooms are usually the size of a shoe box (almost).
