NYC BOUTIQUE HOTELS

When it comes to boutique hotels, New York is the city that started it all. So it's no surprise that it's home to the world's greatest concentration of extraordinary boutique and luxury hotels. If you can make it here, after all, you can make it anywhere. From the quirky independents to the best of the big chains, from Midtown to Tribeca to the Lower East Side, New York's got something for virtually any taste. Here's our guide to Tablet's NYC boutique hotel selection:
