White-gloved elevator operators add classic elegance at this most grand hotel. Rooms are traditionally decorated; bathrooms are somewhat compact but luxuriously appointed with fine quality amenities. Refined and sophisticated dining and public spaces make this a top pick for weddings and gala events. Proximity to Central Park, as well as to Fifth Avenue is second to none. The designer Yves St Laurent lived in the hotel for many years, using it as his New York residence. His photo now adorns the 38th floor on which he resided. Elizabeth Taylor was another prominent guest in-residence during her heyday.
World-class style and service, paired with contemporary technology are the hallmarks of this outstanding property, which stands majestically at the south entrance to Central Park. The concierges at this hotel are among the best in the city at snagging those hard-to-get restaurant reservations. The exercise area is exceptionally well-designed and leading edge, very suitable for any type of workout routine.Book NowCourtesy of The St. Regis New York

2 E. 55th St.AAA Inspector:
The history of New York literally pours forth here, and it is a must see kind of place even if just for a cocktail at the iconic lounge.
A New York landmark since 1904, this extraordinary property offers style at a grand level. When combined with contemporary luxury and attentive services, it’s in a rarefied, supreme class altogether. This historic hotel was built by John Jacob Astor IV as a sister property to the Waldorf Astoria, just a few years before Astor went down with the Titanic. Today, guests can enjoy unlimited use of the private on-site health club and the sublime King Cole Bar is pure New York classic. Prime Fifth Avenue shopping is a few steps around the corner. The hotel offers a variety of uniquely noble experiences, including learning the art of sabrage, the French tradition of opening a champagne bottle with a sabre sword.Book NowAAA
