My only complaint is a matter of personal taste, so not necessarily one that would be shared by other guests. I like a firm mattress, and the mattress in our room was rather soft. My wife in particular did not sleep well for the two nights we stayed for that reason. But again, all a matter of individual taste, and otherwise the hotel was exemplary in every respect.

Lacking in attention to detail wouldn’t stay at this hotel again.

Incredibly nice and helpful staff. Room was much larger than I expected, and with even more amenities than that. The water pressure in the shower was incredible, better than what I have at home. It was located close to the Met, no more than a six block walk. I would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful hotel with plenty of room and an attentive staff

The sleep condition was bad. I lot of noise from the streets, in the room a lot of night lines from the tv. The phone, the lite switch, they were a lot that I have to cover to be able to sleep Really bad pillows and blankets

Very attentive staff; room spotless; location perfect for museums and shopping

Valentine's Day stay. Very romantic, with fantastic bar and brunch/dinner by the one and only Daniel Bouloud. Great location near high end shopping and Central Park.

Staff is always so personable. Lovely hotel. Clean, comfortable, great showers. Pet friendly.

Lovely place to stay. Though in the reservation notes and with a follow up phone call a quite room with no down pillows were requested. Neither were assigned upon arrival.

Had a stop over in NY on the way back home, decided to stay at The Surrey after numerous positive recommendations from friends. It was fabulous. Very attentive staff, great location and beautifully appointed rooms.

For an upscale discreet encounter of the forbidden kind, the Surrey was expensive but delightful. Nothing about the accommodations disappointed...

An Excellent hotel. The staff are excellent. Great location. The room was clean, I was very happy with everything.

We arrived at the hotel around 6PM. They gave us a room which we did not like. They were sld out and un able to give us another room. aWe were on the third floor. They promised to give us another room the following day. They moved us to the 15th floor which was perfect and we had a partial view of the park, I have a suggestion that somehow they should include the use of internet

Anniversary weekend in NY. Couldn't have been nicer. Room was beautiful, perfectly appointed, staff was warm and extremely helpful.

When choosing a small upscale hotel not associated with the larger chains I expect wonderful things. The rooms were indeed comfortable, with delightful products in the bathroom, a very comfortable bed and room to move around. But when personal service is required this is where they should shine. A cup of tea was needed quickly at the end of the evening and although my husband was willing to get one himself downstairs, the bartender refused to provide him with one to take upstairs. They did finally have someone deliver one to us but it is the tone used by the waitstaff and the idea that coffee and tea was not easily available that was so frustrating without having to wait. Plenty of liquor for purchase in the room but no tea or coffee! That and having to wait in the lobby to have a room ready to be checked in when it was after 3 pm was a bit frustrating. However it is a lovely hotel and the location is wonderful if you are looking for something on the Upper East Side.

This was my first stay at Surrey and I could not have been more impressed. My room was on the small side but it was exceedingly comfy. Many amenities. Bathroom only had a shower but it was unquestionably the best shower I've ever enjoyed anywhere. Bed, pillows and linens were premium. Hotel bar was active and inviting. I did not dine at the Daniel Boloud restaurant but it was awarded Michelin star - must be excellent. All in all, I will certainly return.

a wonderful hotel to stay in whether alone or for a romantic get away.

The Surrey is a first rate hotel. My suite, (which I did not request but was delighted with) could not have been nicer. Staff was very responsive. Concierge really helpful. The rooftop penthouse bar was a pleasant surprise and a nice view. The only less than excellent experience was the overpriced and under whelming french restaurant "Boulud" connected to the hotel. I would not recommend it.
