The Surrey: Exceptional Service in Manhattan's Elite Neighborhood

New York is calling. High-end boutiques eagerly await your arrival; art galleries are ready to showcase their finest collections; and Manhattan's Upper East Side welcomes you with a stay at The Surrey hotel, one of the finest new luxury hotels in New York. It's time you answered the call.

Built in 1926 and renovated in 2009, The Surrey has been home to many celebrities over the years such as Bette Davis, JFK and Claudette Colbert. Acclaimed interior designer Lauren Rottet paid special attention to maintaining the integrity of the hotel's history while modernizing what has become New York's most intimate address.

Guests can choose from a variety of guestrooms ranging from the Salons to the 2,800-square-foot Presidential Suite. The Salon guestrooms invite you to relax in the comfortable Duxiana bed with custom Sferra bedding. Painted wardrobes, oversized desks with built-in vanities and tranquil sitting areas decorate the 330 to 570-square-foot rooms. Select Salons feature fireplaces, private terraces and soaking tubs.

For larger accommodations walk through the beautiful brass and copper door preserved from the original Surrey hotel, into the 1,200-square-foot Penthouse Suite located on the top floor of the hotel. Sophisticated and private, the suite offers extended luxury with a full kitchen, striking marble fireplace and a 1,100-square-foot wraparound terrace with stunning views of Central Park and the Upper East Side.

The spacious bedroom includes a private sitting area, wardrobe and a master bath with glass-enclosed shower and soaking tub. Other amenities include a library, Sanyo recessed projector with an 80-inch by 45-inch retractable screen, luxurious Pratesi robes, and exclusive toiletries by Laura Tonatto of Milan.

The Spa at The Surrey provides a tranquil experience where each moment is carefully crafted to benefit well-being and peace of mind. Find yourself fully re-energized with an Aromatherapy Massage or one of their personalized treatments individualized just for you.

For those wishing to continue their fitness routine while on vacation the gym, located on the second floor, is open twenty-four hours and is fully equipped with state-of-the-art Life Fitness cardio equipment. Machines boast individual video screens and headsets for a more personal workout experience.

As food aficionados will tell you, New York is home to some of the finest dishes and wonderfully crafted flavors within the states. Café Boulud is no exception. It is both an exquisite fine dining destination and a neighborhood treasure. Inspired by Chef Daniel Boulud's unique twist on time-honored French cuisine prepared with fine seasonal American ingredients, Café Boulud celebrates New York's café society.

The menu is inspired by four culinary muses: classic French cuisine, seasonal delicacies, the vegetable garden and the flavors of world cuisines. The restaurant has received a star in the Michelin Guide and a three-star review in The New York Times.

Whether entertaining in the private roof garden, indulging in a cleansing facial at the Spa, or enjoying pan seared Halibut with white bean cassoulet and sauce bordelaise at Café Boulud, the hotel is sure to please, with exceptional service is at your fingertips.
