Almost a century old, the Warwick has some serious New York cred: it was built by William Randolph Hearst (name-checked by the hotel bar) and has hosted nearly all the big names of the 20th century, including Elvis and The Beatles. It retained its old-school elegance with timeless rooms while New York developed around it, managing to function as a luxurious retreat from the chain coffee shops and Subway sandwich joints that seem to appear on every block. Time slows down when you enter, and the visitors ensconced in leather armchairs at the bar seem happy to be taking a break from zipping around the city that you worry they might never leave. You won’t find bachelor parties staying here or 24-hour party people, but that’s part of its old-fashioned charm.
In the Area
This Midtown hotel is surrounded by some of the top cultural attractions and restaurants in New York, all within a few minutes walk. The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, and St. Patrick’s Cathedral are all within spitting distance, but if you’ve already checked them off your list then get right to exploring the fabulous New York restaurants nearby; try Aquavit for minimalist Scandinavian food that’s won two Michelin stars, or hit up Nobu 57 for slick Japanese-Peruvian food; then have a cocktail at Monkey Bar, a swanky and romantic bar that draws a chic crowd who love the dim lights and “old Manhattan” ambience. The next day you can burn off those calories with run or stroll around Central Park, just five blocks from the hotel. There are two subway stops within two blocks, for easy access to the rest of the city.
How to Get There
Just been, on the Best Hotel in New York.
My husbond and I stayed one week here, from 29/6-19
We arrivede to the hotel, about tjek in time. And the Nice doormann( forgot his name) help US, with all our bags.
We Got the room fast and took the elevator to 16 floor room 1620.
And from the moment we Enter the room, we loved it. It Was a Nice room. Big bed, lots of place to put your bags, lots of place to put all your stuff.
The bathroom Was Nice too. Great bathtub, lots off hot warter, and soo clean. This Was the cleanest hotel we had on our 3 weeks in USA.
I became a member , When I booket the room on there own web side. That Was a good deal.
We had there breakfast ones, and it Was Nice.
Notthing bad to say about this hotel. Its simple beautifull and charming.
Thanks for the Best stay at our trip.
See you again. Thats fore sure.
Love fra Denmark
The Warwick did not disappoint. We stayed in a one-bedroom suite on the 11th floor which was nicely appointed. The Suite had a sitting room with tv, a table with four chairs, and enough room for a rollaway bed. It was very large compared to other NYC hotel rooms from what I understand. The bedroom could be closed off from the rest of the suite. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom opened off of the bedroom and was very clean — but counter space within the bathroom was at a premium. The maid service was great! Our room was cleaned every day when we returned from sightseeing, and they performed a turndown service each night. The hotel elevators were efficient but very small. They fit about 6 people max so we had to wait for the next car a couple of times. The best thing about this hotel was the location in Midtown —close by to many eateries and the subway. We would definitely stay here again!
We stayed in one of the suites, separate living room area- Having been to NYC many times I was pleasantly surprised with the living space and the view. Only downfall was a lack of shelf space in the bathroom, but it was really not a major inconvenience. We would stay here again and recommend the Warwick-the place where The Beatles stayed, as well as many other famous people.
