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.

    Location 3.0 /10

    The Trump Soho is situated at the corner of Varick and Spring Streets, right at the heart of one of the most exciting neighbourhoods in New York. It's ideally situated for exploring downtown, surrounded by cool shops, restaurants and bars and close to the CanDo and FiDi areas of the island, home to Battery Park, Wall Street, ground Zero and the waterfront. A short taxi ride away are the equally hip Meatpacking, Chelsea and Greenwich Village districts of Manhattan, while to get further afield you can just hop on the subway at one of several stations around the hotel to get uptown or over to Brooklyn. The Holland Tunnel, which leads over to Jersey City is just several minutes away. JFK is 18 miles away, La Guardia 11 miles and Newark 13.

    Accommodation 9.90 /10

    The hotel offers a total of 391 accommodations ranging from the superior guest rooms on the lower floors to the penthouse suites at the apex of the hotel. The standard rooms feature a king size bed dressed in Bellino linens with a padded leather headboard behind it. The furniture, much of which is from the Fendi Casa collection, comprises bedside tables, a desk, a drawer unit, leather butler and an armchair and foot rest in one corner. In terms of amenities you've got a 42" flatscreen television and DVD player, iPod docking station, Nespresso machine, fully stocked minibar, touch screen telephone, safe, iron and ironing board, bathrobes and in some cases a microwave. Although there is an excellent system of lighting in the room, the best light comes through the floor-to-ceiling windows from which there are great view to be had, especially higher up the building. The spacious marble-clad bathrooms, selected ones of which have a double vanity, boast stylish bronze fittings, separate bathtub and monsoon shower, television screen, make-up mirror and The Spa at Trump toiletries. The deluxe guestrooms are identical to the superior rooms, however are placed higher up the tower and therefore enjoy sweeping city views such as of the Hudson or Empire State Building.

    Both one- and two-bedroom suites are available, also in superior and deluxe categories. These offer generously sized separate living spaces with seating and dining areas as well as extra closet space. A selected few have a powder room or double vanity in the main bathroom. The newest addition to the Trump accommodations are the spa suites which are incorporated into the centre and which boast jacuzzi bathtubs, exclusive bath menu, special healthy minibar and private use of a treatment room with sauna and steam shower. The light-infused duplex and two-bedroom penthouses on the top three floors of the hotel enjoy heaps of space and feature fully-equipped kitchens with Sub-Zero wine coolers, spacious bathrooms with walk-in showers and floating bathtubs and plenty of space for entertaining. Other unique elements include terraces with unobstructed views of the city and telescopes to get an even better look at them.

    Overview 9.90 /10

    The glimmering tower of the hotel soars high above all that encircles it and this stark uprightness is reflected inside with an emphasis on verticals such as the walnut cherry slats at the tall windows, the plaster columns painted in brass and the suspension frames for the rectangular light boxes. The rest of the lobby's décor, or more precisely, the elements used, remind of the area's historical link to the printed press industry: copper and brass details on the furniture, water-filled basins in which float round, flower clad sculptures and fire from the gas fireplace. While there are several cosy seating areas in the hall, the idea was not for the space to serve as a lounge (difficult when the dulcet tones of Frank Sinatra are playing in the background) - an area to this effect can be found up on the mezzanine level, via the Pompeii stone flanked staircase. Known as the library, this snug hideaway features a hardwood floor, a long corner couch and a large collection of art and design books from publishing house Taschen. Guests can also enjoy a range of games, complimentary wifi and breakfast. You'll find many little, equally relaxing niches dotted around the hotel.

    Those guests who feel like pampering themselves should count their lucky stars that they're staying at the Trump Soho for the spa is one of the most magnificent in the city. The entrance to the two-floor facility, which is entirely appointed with Turkish décor, features a white marble fountain and the Bar d'Eau while outside on the terrace (open from May to October), is a 10m heated pool with massage waterfalls as well as cabanas and a boccia court. The centre's principal asset is New York's only traditional Turkish hammam for both men and women - nowhere else in the city can you enjoy an authentic hammam experience which is followed by mint tea, stuffed olives and halvah. In the relaxation area where you wait before your treatment, complete with tea, fruit and chocolate, a specialist will consult with you as to exactly what results you are looking for in your treatment - pacify, balance, revitalise, calm or heal. These treatments take place in one of nine treatment rooms (one for couples) and include massages, facials, manicures and pedicures, hairdressing services and signature gemstone treatments using exclusive Kate Sommerville products containing diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphires. Other features of the spa include a sauna, tepidorium and fitness centre with top-of-the-range machines. One-to-one yoga sessions are also available upon request.

    The hotel's public areas are not only beautifully designed and decorated but are also spotless and easy to navigate. The multiple lifts which serve every floor are both spacious and efficient. You'll find a full service business centre on basement level while services such as valet parking and a personal assistant are also offered.

    Food and drink 9.70 /10

    Quattro is the name of the hotel's excellent restaurant, specialising in northern Italian cuisine. The space is split into two with the main restaurant and bar downstairs and a mezzanine level above with a private dining space (mainly for dinner service). Décor features include dark green tiles which remind of the Paris métro, Murano glass chandeliers and wall cavities filled with empty glass bottles. Quattro serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch at weekends. The service during our dinner was faultless, while the food, taken care of by twin brothers Fabrizio and Nicola Carro, was both mouth-watering and impeccably presented. Take the chance before your meal though to take a drink at the bar which has a glass tiled drinks display wall. You can also take your pre-dinner tipple up in the library or even at Kastel, Trump Soho's lounge which serves cocktails and wines by the glass. A DJ performs here every night except Sundays and there is a guest list door policy after 10pm.

    To know

    The purpose-built 46-storey tower (opened in April 2010) which houses the Trump Soho is by far the tallest building in the immediate area, which means that many of the hotel's rooms have magnificent views of the whole city. And if, which is very likely, you decide that you'd like to come back again and again to the hotel, they why not buy a room! All of them are available to purchase and owners can stay in their room for 29 days in a row and for up to 120 days in a year.

      Situated in the modish SoHo district of Manhattan, this Thompson Hotels property has stylishness written all over it. 'Understated' is a word much bandied around in hotel circles, however it is one that goes some way to describing the elegance and cleanliness of the décor. Despite having opened back in 2001 it still pulls in the crowds whether that be for its unique Thai restaurant, voguish Thom Bar or A60, its members only rooftop bar (the first in New York). But it is above all a comfortable, homelike hotel which, like its sister properties, is suited more to couples and friends rather than families.

      Coming up to its fifteenth anniversary, the Soho Grand looks as good as ever. This trendy downtown hotel, in an equally modish part of town, has everything for the modern day traveller with well appointed rooms with city views, fashionably exclusive restaurant and bar, original décor and artwork throughout and a young, hip staff team at your call. This, together with several quirky details which give the hotel a unique identity, make of the Soho Grand a pleasant base from which to explore both the alternative local area, but also the New York that we are all so familiar with, having visited the city or not. We recommend this property for all types of traveller from coupes, to friends to families.

      The Sheraton Tribeca is a smart new hotel in a great location for both (returning) tourists and business people. Not only is it close to the business district around Wall Street, but its proximity to several of Downtown's most exciting neighbourhoods is a real plus. A full service hotel, the Sheraton offers well appointed, spacious rooms with great views, a decent restaurant, great business and fitness facilities and some nice touches and services that you may not expect from a hotel such as this. Efficient staff and a bustling atmosphere make this a solid choice for those looking for a high standard, dependable hotel with no nasty surprises.

      With several big names behind The Mercer, it should not come as a huge surprise that The Mercer is the success it is: it is an André Balazs property (like The Standard), was designed in part by Christian Liaigre and has a Jean Georges restaurant (like The Mark). With such a backing, together with the general love affair with the area, it is equally unsurprising that the hotel has become a hangout for beautiful people and celebrities and the place to be seen in SoHo. The loft-style rooms, although in some cases a lot smaller than the real deal, are neutrally yet stylishly appointed and are especially bright. The attractive staff is surprisingly unpretentious and the place itself is a little more discreet than other properties in the same genre due to the relatively low number of rooms. The hotel does lack amenities, however it has enough to be able to meet the needs of most travellers be it friends, couples or families.

      11 years after opening in the eponymous district of Manhattan, the Tribeca Grand is still a force to be reckoned with amongst downtown hotels. At once classy, retro and contemporary, it offers a unique architecture, well-equipped, originally decorated rooms and a first rate staff all in the trendy, exciting backdrop of Tribeca (Triangle Below Canal Street). Just like its sister hotel, the Soho Grand, it also boasts some quirky novelties which set it apart from the competition. If there is one criticism it would be the restaurant, where the service, while pleasant, left a lot to be desired (more in 'Food and Drink'). Nonetheless we would definitely recommend this property to all types of traveller, newcomers or old hands, couples or families.

      In the city that never sleeps, it's always nice to find yourself in a ?calm hotel'. In terms of hotel typologies you've got those where you plunge into another era, those where you discover a world within a world, boutique hotels and charming hotels full of character. The Greenwich marries all of this but is at once very different. A tranquil hotel, bathed in a soft light, it does one good to take refuge from the hubbub of The Big Apple. More than just a simple hotel, you'll find in this animated residence all the passions and emotions of its owner, Robert De Niro, big traveller and patron of the arts, the seventh of which he has made his profession.

      The fourth and latest of the city's Morgan's properties, the Mondrian SoHo is arguably the most spectacular and the least New York-like of the lot. With design by Benjamin Noriega Ortiz based on Jean Cocteau's 'La Belle et le Bête', the hotel gives off a vibe that you'd expect to find on the coast rather than in the city. It feels fresh, airy and light and has some wonderful public spaces. Some of its rooms are on the small side, but this is compensated by exquisite design, a high standard of amenities, some spectacular views and a brand spanking new Italian restaurant. A hotel perfect for couples wanting to explore Downtown Manhattan, the Mondrian is the perfect trendy base.

      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!

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

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.

      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.
