Best Boutique Hotels in NYC

including Gramercy Park & Union Square

This part of lower Midtown is hard to define but it's definitely got a flavor of its own. New York's tech industry, the so-called Silicon Alley, has its roots around Union Square and the Flatiron District — as do many photographers, publishers, and advertising agencies. Just to the north, around Madison Square Park, Broadway is being redeveloped, and it's proved to be fertile ground for some great new boutique hotels.

Originally named for the iconic trianglaur Flatiron Building at 23rd Street, Broadway and Fifth Avenue, the Flatiron District is roughly the few blocks immediately around the building which sits across 23rd St. from Madison Square Park. Union Square abuts it to the South and Gramercy Park to the East. Chelsea is the the West.

The New York EDITION Hotel — A luxury hotel in Gramercy Park/Madison Park, NYC

The New York Edition

Madison Park / Flatiron

Long departed from the hotel group that once went by his name, Ian Schrager has moved on to a relationship with Marriott International — a partnership whose fruits, the Edition Boutique Hotels, are a little more upscale than the earlier Schrager offerings, and a lot more stylish than the typical Marriott fare. And the latest addition to the Edition hotel family is something of a homecoming, opening on Madison Square Park, in the old Metropolitan Life Tower, otherwise known as That Great Big Clock Tower in the Flatiron District.

Gramercy Park Hotel — A luxury boutique hotel on Gramercy Park, NYC

Gramercy Park Hotel

Gramercy Park

You can call the Gramercy Park Hotel a "hip hotel" if you want to — it's just that these days hip means something very different from what it used to. Nowadays interiors as cold and white as upholstered ice are commonplace, and a hotel just isn't a proper boutique unless its lobby is overflowing with forced architectural whimsy and its bar is overflowing with the sort of people who exist only to be photographed at parties.

The Roger — a boutique hotel in Flatiron Murray Hill NYC

The Roger


The Roger, situated on Madison Avenue between the Flatiron and Murray Hill, is proof that with good taste and expert execution, an outstanding boutique hotel needs no highfalutin, top-to-bottom lifestyle concept. It's not hard to imagine the hoteliers' thought process: "We've got a gorgeous old building in a great location; we'll hire a sharp Manhattan designer to do a top-to-bottom sprucing-up; we'll get pretty spendy with the bedding, the TVs, the bath products and all the little details; and the service will be great." The real trick of course is pulling it all off — and the Roger has done so, swimmingly. More...

Inn at Irving Place — small boutique hotel on Gramercy Park NYC

Inn at Irving Place

Gramercy Park

Quite the opposite of what the New York hotel world has become, the Inn at Irving Place is like a snapshot of an entirely different era—a pair of 1834 townhouses without so much as a sign to mark its presence, it's as far as you can get from the shiny glamour of the big-money hotels, and miles more authentic than the mock history of the downtown hotspots, with their carefully applied patina and assembly-line antiques.

W Union Square — a boutique hotel in the Union Square NYC

W Union Square

Union Square

Hard to believe an architectural gem of the Beekman's stature went neglected for so many years, but we're happy to report that it's back in business, and it's been put to the best possible use. (We would say that, wouldn't we?) The Beekman, a Thompson boutique hotel, is an Old New York original, an 1881-vintage skyscraper from the days when a skyscraper meant nine stories of terraced red brick. And if the silhouette doesn't convince you of its landmark status, a glance upwards surely will, as you walk across the towering central atrium with its pyramidal glass skylight. More...

Hyatt Union Square New York — A boutique hotel in Union Square, NYC

Hyatt Union Square New York

Union Square

With the advent of the Hyatt Union Square New York, this neighborhood at the upper edge of downtown Manhattan has suddenly taken a leap toward the upscale. It's most apparent, perhaps, in the quiet architectural confidence of the building, a clean modern structure rising above an unostentatious street-level facade — but really the hotel's ambition shines throughout. Here the cavernous, colorful lobby bar is where the (subtle) fireworks really begin. Modern furniture, modern art, modern design — needless to say, this isn't the typical Hyatt. More...
