With views of Central Park and the yellow taxis barreling down Fifth Avenue, the Sherry-Netherland guarantees a classic New York experience. The lobby is awash in sculpted marble and crystal chandeliers, and white-gloved bell captains ferry you to your room in elevators from the Vanderbilt mansion.
Bed and Bath
Permanent residents occupy more than half the building, so a stay here offers an authentic, if hushed, glimpse at life in New York. The 50 rooms and suites open to guests are all individually designed, and the decor covers the spectrum from leopard-print and Arizona classic to minimalist modern and girly lavender. One thing that is uniform, however, is the sense of space. By New York standards the rooms are huge — the smallest is 350 square feet — and all have flat-screen TVs, large marble bathrooms and fresh flowers daily.
The hotel doesn’t have a private restaurant, but guests receive a discount at the legendary Harry Cipriani restaurant — a near replica of the Venetian original — on the ground floor. A door from the lobby opens directly into the dining room (via the back of the bar), making guests feel like cherished regulars. There’s a fitness center in the basement and two salons, including the celebrity favorite Garren.
How to Get There
We stayed at The Sherry-Netherland again this past weekend, celebrating Sweet Sixteen birthdays for our two girls. Everything about the hotel is perfect. We had stayed here before but had a regular "outside" room, but this time we booked a suite (for the birthday girls) and a regular room for two adults. The suite was spacious and beautifully finished...we couldn't believe the amount of space the girls had. And our room, an "inside" room, was smaller than the suite but still a large room...especially by New York standards. There are so many great things about this hotel: location is top notch; fresh flowers in rooms/suites; Louis Sherry candies in each room; hotel staff is warm and friendly; service is spectacular; rooms are beautifully appointed; free newspapers; and they will help you with anything. It's the little touches that make this hotel special. The gentlemen who operate the elevators make it feel especially warm and safe. This is now "our" New York hotel. Highly recommend.
My sister and I recently went on a girls weekend to NYC and stayed at The Sherry-Netherland. It was a wonderful experience from beginning to end! Our check-in was swift and easy. All of the hotel staff were friendly, helpful, and excellent at their jobs. We received a complimentary room upgrade, which included a bottle of wine waiting for us to enjoy. Our room was beyond spacious and had every amenity we could possibly need. The hotel location is superb. Room service was delicious. All in all, it was a spectacular time. I will definitely return to this hotel on my next trip to the city! Thank you to the staff for a lovely weekend.
One of the best choices in New York, amazing location and friendly staff, super clean room and bathroom, I recommend the room with Central Park view it’s wonderful and speechless specially in the morning.
It was really amazing time.
