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
spectacular location, all people super kind and very clean.
missing a restaurant for included continental breakfast even if the restaurant below has all the needed food (even if overpriced).
Amazing furniture, towel and water /drink provided free in the room. the tap of the shower should be abit adjusted to make temperature better regulated
What a lovely stay and hotel in New York. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation here for 4 nights. Staff were so welcoming and really made the difference. Reception desk, elevator and room service staff really do make you feel welcome and at home. On arrival there are fresh flowers, chocolates and bedding is changed daily without asking. Toiletries and bathroom necessities including razor, gels and creams from m-brown are plentiful. Close to restaurants and shopping centres including Bloomingdale’s. Across the road from Central Park and subway stations. A wonderful place to stay and treat yourself whilst visiting the big Apple.
We had a truly special 3-night experience at this beautiful hotel. I booked directly with the hotel six months out and chatted to the super friendly booking clerk about our upcoming trip. When we checked in there was a gorgeous bottle of rose champagne waiting for us - compliments of the CEO. I came to learn (from the lovely receptionist) that the booking clerk had made a note on the booking that it was my birthday. Very nice touch, thank you. All members of staff were super friendly and helpful - not to mention efficient. The rooms are a great size - bathrooms big and roomy and the complimentary room incidentals and drinks are too many to mention. Do yourself a favour and spend the extra dollars. It's worth it. We shall return.
