Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Iroquois is a classy, timeless property right in the heart of Manhattan, close to all the big tourist attractions as well as transport links. As well as its great location, it boasts decent sized, beautifully appointed rooms for this part of town, a superb dining room and cocktail bar and service of the highest order. There is a real attention to detail here which cannot be taken for granted whether you are travelling for business (business centre) or pleasure (Finnish sauna), as a family or as a couple. The Iroquois is a classically decorated hotel which will live up to all your expectations.

    Location 9.67 /10

    Situated on West 44th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues, The Iroquois has the perfect location for visitors looking to see the standard tourist attractions as well as to discover the other areas of the island and beyond. It is just a couple of blocks away from Grand Central Station and Bryant Park, while Times Square and th theatres are also just a short walk away. You are also vey close to the great shopping on 5th and Madison Avenues and of course the Rockefeller Center is almost on your doorstep too. Central Park is definitely within walking distance as are several subway stations whose lines can get you Uptown, Downtown and to Brooklyn. JFK is 18 miles away, La Guardia 9 miles and Newark 17.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    There are a total of 114 guestrooms and suites at the Iroquois, most of which unfortunately don't have fantastic views, although a few do look out onto 44th Street. All rooms are somberly yet smartly furnished with high quality furniture and upholsteries as well as a good range of amenities as some nice personal touches. The cosy, warm and carpeted smaller rooms have Frette-dressed queen beds with the censored minibar to one side. At the foot of the bed is a large drawer unit while under the window is a desk with ergonomic chair and an armchair by its side. As well as the large flatscreen television, the rooms have a DVD player, iPod docking station, cordless telephone, iron and ironing board, safe, Frette bathrobes and various jack outlets. Three little touches that we liked a lot were the weather cards placed on the bed each day as well as the chocolate on the pillow and complimentary bottle of mineral water. The bathrooms, which are a little on the small side but smart with their gold fittings and Italian marble, have a bathtub/shower combination, Frette towels, make-up mirror and Molton Brown toiletries.

    The suites not only have larger bedrooms with added furniture, but also a separate hardwood floor living space with a comfortable seating area featuring pull out soafs and coffee table as well as contemporary paintings and art pieces. The bathroom has a separate shower in addition to the bathtub and a set of scales.

    Overview 8.70 /10

    The front entrance of the hotel is covered by that very Manhattan-style of gilded canopy that one can see guarding over the front of many hotels in the city. The marble-floored lobby, which is in part spoilt by the (we're sure necessary) central pillar), features dark wood panelling with hints of black marble and entire walls covered in silk. The reception desk, manned by a professional and friendly staff, is at the back of the hall while the concierge is to the left and, to the right, a beverage trolley with citrus water in the summer and hot apple cider in the winter. A large high backed sofa fills a slight mirror-covered cavity just before the welcome desk although for real comfort and intimacy head to the library/business centre just to the left of the entrance. With airs of a private study, this room, lined with bookshelves and with an oriental carpet at its centre, has some beautiful tan leather seating and is also where guests can come to surf the net on the complimentary PCs and or watch the flatscreen television.

    Although the hotel doesn't have a wellness centre so to speak, it does have a well-equipped fitness room which features a Finnish sauna as well as a bathroom specifically for those guests who need to use such facilities but who have already checked out - a nice touch. The rest of the hotel's public spaces, namely the corridors (custom carpet, gilded mirrors, water colours) and lifts (of which there are two) etc are in perfect condition and getting to and finding your room is simple and quick.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    The hotel is lucky enough to have two Midtown hotspots under its roof. The first, at the back of its lobby, is the classy cocktail bar, Lantern's Keep. Run by a dedicated team of mixologists whose passion comes through in the long list of drinks presented on the menu, the décor takes the guest back to turn of the century Paris and the salons which were all the rage. In addition to the 30 odd cocktails, the bar also serves finger foods such as charcuterie, crispy chicken legs and risotto fritters. This is the perfect place for pre-dinner/theatre drinks, for a night cap or for a quiet night out with friends or a loved one.

    The second of these hotspots is Triomphe, the hotel's restaurant. One of the most talked about addresses in the area, it serves a seasonal French cuisine using the freshest of ingredients in an intimate and smart setting with just around 50 covers. Jason Tilmann heads a brilliant team which offers breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. Our lunch at the restaurant was truly excellent in every way with first class ingredients, considered flavour associations, beautiful presentation and tiptop service. And the prices are not at all extortionate when adding the location into the equation. Even if you don't decide to stay at the Iroquois, try and pop into Triomphe for lunch or dinner. You won't be disappointed.

    To know

    Whilst the rooms are pretty quiet in general, there were some instances where we heard cars horns from down below. If you are a sensitive sleeper then we suggest you ask for a room at the back of the hotel, even if this means a poorer view.

      We finally got round to visiting the then newly-renovated legendary New York hotel, The Algonquin, in early 2013 and if anything it was a relief. A relief, because we could finally understand what all the fuss was about. It might not be up there with the very best hotels in the city, but it is certainly a hotel of high standing with heaps of fascinating history and an excellent central Manhattan location. The rooms, while smartly appointed and restored somewhat to their former glory, can be on the small side, but are quiet and comfortable and functional. There is a decent restaurant in the hotel's lobby area while the intimate bar is legendary. More than just a hotel The Algonquin is a New York landmark, a meeting place for all types of people which will live on for years to come. If you are looking for a bona fide New York hotel experience, look no further than here.

      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.

      • Location 9.97

      This New York outpost of the Spanish chain Room Mate is so funky it hurts. It marries great Iberian design with a clever use of space and an impressive range of services given the hotel's size. What's more it has a location (for tourists) to die for and laid back but efficient service. The rooms could be bigger, but then you wouldn't get the value for money that Grace offers. The property is perfect for young couples or groups of friends on a certain budget looking to get the absolute most from their dollars. This one's a definite winner!

      Although the Premier welcomes all guests, it was originally built with the woman traveller in mind. At once formal and relaxed, the hotel is ideally situated for both business and pleasure. It is a fresh, modern and well-considered hotel with good size rooms and some great views. Recommended for lone female travellers or businesswomen as well as for couples looking for a comfortable, discreet yet functional base in New York.

      • Location 9.73

      Not to take anything at all away from the Morgans or Hudson, from top to bottom the Royalton is our favourite of the three Morgans properties in New York. It has arguably the best location of all three, the most audacious design and for us the smartest rooms. Over two years since it reopened following a renovation, it is still as legendary as it was in its Starck days. Indeed, parting company from the French superstar designer could well turn out to be a smart move (although the spirit in which he had conceived the first version has been kept, not least because she started her career in his group). The most grown up of the Morgans, the Royalton has something to offer every kind of traveller no matter their motive for travel and whatever the length of their stay. A big thumbs up from easyvoyage.co.uk.

      • Location 9.99

      After a recently terminated $15 million renovation, it would be quite wrong to say anything other than "Money well spent!" The hotel, which has a location difficult to better, is certainly one of a kind and has some excellent facilities and original décor. Pet-friendly (to what some would say is an absurd point), it has that edge of eccentricity that one can only find here in New York. Popular amongst bohos and trendy thirty somethings it could equally serve as a familial base for a week or so's stay. However much we liked The Muse, and really, we are fans, it must be said that it has one huge flaw and that is its front of house staff. Shame, because everything else is spot on.

      Take a step back in time (through a passage lined with suede and leather, of course) to the golden age of travel and the magnificent new Art Deco hotel The Chatwal. Opened recently in August of 2011, it has quickly become one of the places to stay in New York and to be honest, it isn't difficult to see why: a dream location in the heart of Manhattan, superbly appointed, world ?class accommodations, a luxury spa and a fine restaurant. Marrying both old world glamour and modern day luxury, this 'baby grand' hotel will appeal to those looking for good old fashioned service in a romantic setting with everything that makes this a great city within reach.

      Squeaky clean and clinical all in white, Cassa is a contemporary hotel and residence tower in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. It boasts 165 well-appointed and light and airy rooms with sleek furnishings and details as well as state-of-the-art fitness room and a brand new breakfast room. The hotel would certainly meet the needs of couples and families visiting the city for pleasure, although business travellers and those seeking a full-service establishment (wellness facility, business centre etc) might have to look elsewhere. A major advantage of the hotel is that, despite being in the centre of town, you can't hear a thing from the roads below at night.

      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.

      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.

      • 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!

      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.

      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.

      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?
