The Americana Inn offers basic comfort and a few more resonable facilities. It resembles more a youth hostel than a hotel. Nevertheless, it is very clean and is perfect for small budgets.

    Location 9.27 /10

    At 69 West 38th Street. Near 6th Avenue. The hotel is 17 miles from La Guardia airport, 17 miles from JFK, and 17 miles from Newark. It is located near metro lines B, D, F,N,Q, and R.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The rooms of the Americana are quite small, but the ceilings are high. They have minimalist decor but are bright and clean. They have television (only 12 channels), air conditioning, and a sink. About the bathrooms; here is the problem, you have to go down the corridor, and share it with other guests (on the average, a bathroom for 3 rooms). Another important problem is the inadequate soundproofing that doesn't block noises from the busy street or the corridor that echoes.

    Overview 6.45 /10

    The Americana Inn occupies the last 4 floors of a small unpretentious 5-storey building. It has 66 rooms, 17 of them belong to permanent residents, 14 double, 4 triple, and 17 single rooms (14 were being renovated when we visited). The hotel, although very clean, isn't very attractive because of its decor and the lack of facilities, which have been reduced to the strict minimum: a small reception area accessible by elevator, leads into the private entrance of the building, a counter with some touristic brochures and... one Internet access point. The hotel is well located, but in a rather noisy street. In short, a property without much interest, convenient for one night or two or for small budgets ($ 59 a night, with the discount, all the same!).

    To know

    The lobby of the hotel is located on the second floor. You get there by elevator, through a traditional building entrance. For late departures, a room is provided for complimentary luggage storage. The Americana Inn does not have any food facilities. The owner, of Lebanese origin, speaks French.

      • Value for money 7.27
      • Location 9.26

      One of New York's newest hotels, The Strand is a well conceived property with a fresh look and a youthful personality, of which easyvoyage.co.uk got a sneak preview before its opening in early December 2009. It has well appointed rooms with a subtle use of colour, some nice touches unique to the hotel (motion-censored air con) and perhaps best of all a rooftop bar to rival those of any of the city's hotels. It is true to say that the hotel's location is not in the most attractive part of the city, but it is still not far from some of New York's biggest attractions and is great for transport links. In addition, it does something that very few hotels in the city do nowadays and that's to offer a complimentary breakfast. We recommend this hotel for leisure travellers, in particular couples and groups of friends (families would also enjoy the hotel, however there is not a huge amount of space for larger families).

      • Location 9.34

      A firm favourite with the 'in' crowd since its opening in 2001, the Bryant Park Hotel stills packs a punch despite its seniority over some of its closest competitors. The design is pretty sleek and contemporary and the restaurant and bar are certainly of the type to attract the type of clientele needed for the hotel to retain its trendy status. Although some of the rooms have no view, they are very well-appointed and many give on to the park just across the road. If you are travelling as a couple or family and want the very best of Manhattan on your doorstep then you should very definitely consider booking here, providing you have a considerable budget.

      • Location 9.22

      We're going to stick our necks out here and say that of all the hotels we have stayed at in this city, the Setai probably takes top spot. Of course there are many different types of hotel in the city and not everyone is looking for what the Setai has to offer, but as on overall experience, it can't, in our opinion, be bettered. The rooms are not only some of the biggest in the city, but they are likely to be the best appointed in terms of amenities too. The stunning, contemporary spa is as luxurious as it is spacious and in its restaurant the hotel has one of most memorable dining experiences to be had. But what impressed us most, and where the hotel rises above it competitors, is the consistent attention to detail and impeccable service the likes of which we've never seen. Although new (November 2010 opening), this is right up there with the old masters and the best thing is that it can only get better!

      • Location 9.05

      It all started right here in 1984 when Andrée Putman, the celebrated French interior designer, unveiled the Morgans hotel and triggered what was to be arguably the greatest phenomenon in hotel history by creating the boutique hotel. Renovated last in 2008, still with a large input from Mrs. Putman, the property has kept the same values which has made it and the other hotels in the group of the same name what they are today. An innovative design, functionality, a renowned restaurant and a superb location combine to produce a property which still meets the heavy expectations placed upon its shoulders. Recommended strongly for friends, families or couples as well as those in town on business. Once a classic, always a classic.

      • Location 9.03

      There are times in this job when you uncover a gem of a hotel for which you had no expectations at all (not because you'd heard bad things, but simply because it had until then escaped your attention!). Library hotel is one of those gems. Its theme, as you may have guessed from the name it bears, is the Dewey Decimal System used in libraries around the world. Not only is this a truly original theme which is well exploited in the hotel, but the real genius is that it is one that will never go out of fashion. The hotel itself, which has a great Midtown location and is renowned for its impeccable service, is beautifully appointed and decorated and boasts features which other hotels can only look upon with envy. The Library would be an ideal hotel for couples, friends or families in New York on either business or pleasure.

      As with any Sofitel in the world, we expect a high standard of accommodation, professionalism in the staff and an honourable place to dine. The chain's property in New York is no exception. Marrying the attributes of good old American service with Gallic flair, the Sofitel is a very smart, yet laid back hotel with an excellent location in the heart of Manhattan. No matter what your motivation for travel in the Big Apple, you'll find that all your needs are met, indeed exceeded. Definitely one hotel that cannot, must not be disregarded.

      We were quite simply blown away by this hotel. Rare are the occasions where there is nothing to fault, but staying here was one of those - it just couldn't put a foot wrong. Generously proportioned, impressively appointed rooms are complemented by a relaxed yet top class Italian restaurant, while the spa is a sight to behold. You'll have a tough job finding a property where the service is paralleled and don't even get us started on the views! A magnificent, modern and memorable hotel, we recommend the Trump Soho to all kinds of traveller, newcomers or old hands, couples or families. A huge thumbs up.

      Let's not mince our words; The Peninsula is quite simply one of the finest hotels in New York, even more so now it is the other side of a renovation. From the very first moment you enter the hotel you'll have no doubt about the quality of experience that awaits you. There is very little to pick holes at here where excellence comes as standard: the large rooms are finely furnished, the restaurants of the highest caliber, the spa one of the most beautiful and complete in the city and the service faultless. Like all top class hotels this all comes at a certain price, however if there was ever one hotel which could justify the cost it would be this one.

      Q. What do you get when you take $150 million and put them into the hands of one of the world's greatest architect/designers? A. The Mark. Be under no illusions, what Jacques Grange and co have conceived in the leafy surroundings of the Upper Eastside is now the yardstick against which all other hotels will now have to measure themselves. After over two years under renovation with some of the most sought after names in the creative fields working on the project, The Mark has transformed itself from a decent hotel to a hotel of superlatives. Everything is top draw from the design to the staff, from the food to the wellness centre. This all, of course, comes with the price tag that its quality demands, however rest assured that no other hotel can come close to what The Mark has to offer.

      Although no longer associated with its Parisian namesake, the Plaza Athénée New York continues to offer one of the most refined hotel experiences in the city. Its style may not be as subtle as some of its competitors and thus some many find it a little overwhelming, but there is no getting away from the fact the hotel is a class act from top to bottom. It boasts capacious, well-appointed and recently renovated rooms (January 2010), a fine wellness centre, a celebrated restaurant and bar and an impeccable service from a smart, professional staff. If you're after that classic European opulence the other side of the Atlantic then the well-located Plaza Athénée is one to consider.

      This mythical New York hotel has seen its fair share of changes, both within in its walls and outside, however one thing remains constant: The Carlyle is one of the swankiest, smartest, seductive hotels in the city. The very few flaws of the hotel (for example the size of some bathrooms) can be excused by its age; otherwise there are very few hotels of this genre which can claim to offer a similar experience. Not only does it offer top notch service and facilities, but its location and commanding views are also something spectacular. Throw in a rich history, fine dining and exquisite décor and you get a hotel (literally) fit for kings. If you've got the cash, don't even ask yourself the question?

      The Pierre has always been a landmark hotel in New York City?and we are glad to report that after its latest $100 million renovation following its takeover by Taj Hotels, it is still very much one of the hotels by which others must judge themselves. It is true to say that it may not have some of the facilities of some of the other top hotels (no spa, smaller rooms), but when it comes to service, style and sophistication, not to mention history, it is untouchable. With a location that would make most hotels weep with envy, fabulously appointed rooms with an Asian touch and a new, top quality restaurant, The Pierre is back on top of its game and ready to welcome once again all types of traveller, no matter their motive for visiting the city. All this comes, of course, at a price, but if you had to choose a place to spend your hard earned cash, this has got to be near the summit of your shortlist.

      You may be coming to the United States to see New York, but the St. Regis is a destination in itself. The most sumptuous hotel we have visited to date in the city, its beautiful Beaux-Arts interiors are a sight to behold. It's (rightly) famed for its unrivalled service and King Cole Bar (more in 'Food and Drink') as well as its beautiful, spacious and well appointed rooms, however it does lack some of the high tier amenities of its rivals, such as a swimming pool, and the views are not quite as good. That said it can boast an Alain Ducasse restaurant and original antique décor. It's true to say that some may find the hotel's opulence a little overbearing, but let's not lose sight of the fact that this is nonetheless a true masterpiece. Even if you don't have the means to stay here, come and take a look around as the property has some unique features. Couples, friends or business travellers will all find their calling at the St. Regis.
