Find urban-sophisticate sanctuary and service overlooking Central Park

With an Upper East Side address, a gilded pedigree and super-sleek decor, The Surrey stands as a monument to great Manhattan hotels. Built in 1926 as a residence hotel, the original hosted celebrities such as Bette Davis and John F. Kennedy. Today, The Surrey is a statement in black-and-white sophistication inspired by fashion icons such as Coco Chanel, with service that rivals the best. Guests dine at a Michelin-star restaurant, lounge at the full-service spa and even receive personal bartending services in-room. 

Highlights

  • Michelin-star, French-infused dining at the renowned Cafe Boulud
  • Enjoy Bar Pleiades, or request personal bartending service in-room
  • Private rooftop garden overlooking Central Park

Location

Experience classic New York City chic on the Upper East Side, located at East 76th Street and Madison Avenue. Surrey guests can reach Central park, the Museum of Modern Art, the Natural History Museum and some of the best shopping on foot.

Rooms

Extra-large -- and extra-plush -- guest rooms in Coco Chanel black and white create signature chic at The Surrey. The hotel offers salon and suite accommodations, including a penthouse and presidential suite, plus extended-stay apartments. Amenities might include elements such as a hand-painted wardrobe, a fireplace, a private terrace, a soaking tub, a kitchen, a living room and magnificent views of Central Park and the Upper East Side. Pets even receive a pet robe.

Features

Earning a star in the prestigious Michelin guide and 3-star review in The New York Times, Cafe Boulud at The Surrey brings the best of French cuisine to the table at breakfast, brunch (Sundays), lunch and dinner. At Bar Pleiades, the Coco Chanel-inspired decor pleases as much as the cocktails. The Cocktail Program offers hotel guests personal bartender service for in-room cocktails.

Nice, but could be better

My husband and i booked two nights stay for New Years celebration. Pros: - Location, Location, Location; - Helpful and friendly Staff; - Luxurious accommodation; Cons: - Door to the room rattles pretty loudly every time someone open/closes door to other rooms (every 15-20 min, starting 6 am) - cleaning service (left wet/used towels on the floor behind) - Cheap toilet paper!

surrey hotel

Hotel was luxurious and lovely. Staff was friendly and helpful.The renovations were very tasteful and useful. Would definitely go back.The only reservation was that the only place in the hotel to get coffee in the morning is Cafe Boulud-VERY PRICEY! For two lage cups of takeout coffee we were charged $14.00 one morning and $12.00 the next.I would suggest the hotel provide coffee for takeout in the lobby in the morning. Otherwise I would have given a 5 star rating.

The most relaxing trip to NYC ever

From the moment we pulled up to the hotel the experience was wonderful. The staff were spot on, friendly and very professional. Particularly the bellman a lovely Italian gentleman was a delight. We had a lovely dinner and a great time at Steve Tyrell's show at the Carlyle, walked beautiful Cental Park, saw Million Dollar Quartette and a must do Movie Location tour. We were upgraded to a corner room without even asking. The room was lovely, very comfortable and spacious for a NYC hotel. We will definitely return to The Surrey

Surrey Hotel

The Surrey Hotel lived up to it's description. It was modern, elegant and had very spacious rooms. The front desk was attentive and friendly and met all our needs. A bonus was that Cafe Boulud was in house and it too was fabulous. It was enjoyable to find a hotel on the upper east side of New York that wasn't stuffy.

In addition to Cafe Boulud located in the hotel, the Lincoln Center sometimes has performances at Church of St. Ignatius a few blocks away so check in advance. Dinner, music and the hotel made one terrific package.

Great Location, Food, Service for the $$

We were ready for a change from Times Square. Location near Central Park was great. We ran in Park every morning. The rooms were well designed and decorated - attention to detailwas noticable. Attitude and service of staff were excellent. They made exceptions to accomodate our needs.

NY's Best Kept Secret

A block from Central Park, the Surrey was everything I expected (dreamed) and more. Many hotels in Manhattan have great pictures but are a different story when you arrive. We've been told repeatedly that hotel rooms in Manhattan are the size of a shoe box but this was not true here. We were very happy with the large size of the room, bed, desk, lounge area, closet space and bathroom (the shower was a dream!). The staff was always delightful and helpful...even when we poured out of a cab every night around 5am (thanks to their restaurant and bar recommendations). We will definitely be staying here again!

Good Location

The best feature was the location of the property. Only a block away from Central Park, and close to the Museum Mile. Accomodations were clean, although dated, and Staff were ok. Room Service was unavailable, and hotel restaurant was closed for service on one of the two days of our stay. Never saw the Concierge the whole time we were there, and were on our own for hunting down our meals and booking tours. For the price of the room per night, I would probably look around for a better deal. The value of our dollar on this hotel did not meet my expectations.

Great location.

Hotel Surrey is located very near New York's great art museums. Met, Whitney, Guggenheim, Frick and others are only a short walk away. Since rooms are suites, we were able to do our own breakfasts and cocktail hours and save some money. The Boulud restaurant is tres exceptionel. Two spacious closets. Quiet.
