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
Recently stayed at The Sherry Netherland with my husband. Cannot say enough good things about the hotel. Everything was perfect. Especially want to compliment Renée, the Concierge for her helpfulness. Would highly recommend.
We cannot wait to return to this beautiful oasis in Manhattan. Conveniently located on the edge of Central Park, The Sherry-Netherland offers the comforts of home with the benefit of a well trained, customer-oriented service staff.
The incredible value of this hotel cannot be overstated. We paid a comparable amount for our fully equipped suite (apartment) at the SN than we did staying at a value hotel in Times Square on our last visit. The difference was priceless.
We reserved an "interior room" but were surprised to walk into a beautifully furnished apartment with the entryway, living room, kitchen, and bedroom. The marble tiled bathroom, oversized bathtub, and separate shower felt opulent. The King Sized bed was dwarfed by the size of the Master Bedroom and walk-in closet. Chandeliers hung from every ceiling, including the bath.
We arrived in NYC early on check-in day and opted to take a picnic in the park. The staff provided a basket with charcuterie, fruits and veggies, and a bottle of wine while we waited. We sat under a tree in Sheep Meadow on the included blanket and relaxed until the hotel texted to tell us our room was ready. It was the perfect way to adjust after a day of travel.
After our busy day exploring the city, we retreated to our living room to watch a movie while the faux fireplace flickered at our feet. We snacked on complimentary Sherry Chocolate Almonds and ordered a bottle of sparkling rose to cap the night.
We hated to leave, but know that this peaceful retreat from the bustling city is waiting for us on our next trip to the city.
As a frequent visitor to NYC who has stayed at many other hotels, I enthusiastically recommend the Sherry-Netherland and hope to return soon. Great location, just steps from Central Park with convenient subway and bus access. The room was very comfortable and quiet. Much-appreciated special touches included fresh flowers and an extensive selection of complementary toiletries, bottled waters and sodas, and an in room coffee/tea maker. Finally, and most important to me, the staff is exceptionally welcoming. I was sad to leave!
