20 East 76th Street, New York
The Surrey is New York City’s only Relais & Châteaux hotel, a residential haven and luxury Upper East Side hotel getaway, where guests revel in what makes New York City special—without compromising calm personal space.
Built in 1926 as a residence hotel, the original Surrey was home to many of New York’s most famous faces – JFK, Bette Davis, Claudette Colbert, and others who recognized the allure of exceptional, discreet service.
In re-creating The Surrey, a collaboration was created with acclaimed interior designer Lauren Rottet of Rottet Studio.
Their mission was simple, to maintain the integrity of The Surrey’s history while modernizing New York’s most intimate address.
Rottet’s inspiration was a New York City townhouse passed down through the generations. Interior designers are the behind-the-scenes artists that bring a space to life, and we love where they draw their inspiration, as we see with our top Chicago-based designers.
The Surrey’s discreet service allows guests to retreat from the public—and keep a low profile in an otherwise high profile lifestyle.
147 Mercer Street, New York
The Mercer is Soho’s foremost luxury hotel, offering 75 guest rooms on six floors of a landmark Romanesque revival building in one of New York’s most exclusive neighborhoods.
The first hotel to offer an authentic taste of loft living, The Mercer is both a home and luxury hotel. Sister hotel to Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont, The Mercer bespeaks elegance, subtlety, and intimacy.
An all-encompassing philosophy of distinction extends to every detail. At The Mercer, they regard every staff member as the guests’ personal concierge and the front desk as their private secretary-an impeccable level of service that only a small luxury hotel can provide. This is another celeb fave, so you might catch a star if you’re staying here.
11 Howard Street, New York
Another superb hotel that’s located in the heart of SOHO, 11 Howard’s guiding principle is conscious hospitality.
This means that they approach each aspect of the hotel—from design to the location to amenities to the ultramodern brand of service—with awareness, purpose, and thoughtful consideration.
11 Howard’s guest accommodations feature light oak floors, custom-crafted furniture, and high ceilings.
You’ll also find natural bamboo area rugs, double-weave wool bed throws, and ceramic wall sculptures by Taiwanese artist Katie Yang.
Bathrooms are stocked with organic bath products and finished in marble and brass. While you’re there check out HigherDOSE. This is an infrared spa dedicated to getting you hot and high.
DOSE stands for dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphins.
These are the feel-good chemicals that can get released by your brain when you are inside of an infrared sauna—helping the high off of your own supply. That sounds natural to us!
