Just stayed 4 days at this wonderful boutique hotel only a block from Central Park. Close to everything--and 3 blocks to the #6 Train entrance on Lexington that gets you to the heart of Soho in less than 15 minutes with no transfers. Nice staff--they all know your name and welcome you back each time that door opens.

Had a lovely time at this charming stylish hotel - busy and buzzy bar serving delicious cocktails and yummy bar snacks. Lovely service. Very comfy rooms and well appointed bathrooms..... lovely to come back to after treading the streets of New York. Very civilized part of town but would breakfast out of the hotel. Staff were very helpful and obliging....

Just spent a week at The Surrey Hotel..We enjoyed the smaller scale size of the Hotel (190) rooms which made the feeling more intimate...The front desk staff,concierges,doormen,servers were all friendly,helpful and top notch.Oue experiences in the Cafe Boulud (breakfast only) and the Pleiades Bar were excellent.

Great hotel in an amazing location just by Central Park. The staff are excellent, especially Michael the concierge - of you want to go out make sure you get his advice! The decor is luxurious but understated and the beds... wow! They are massive! If I could afford it I'd be back over and over again.

The more I visit the more time I want to spend here but my apartment is finally ready and so will only be a guest at the bar and restaurant. Only complaint is that Wifi should be free of charge at this price.

I have stayed at the Surrey a number of times; it really is excellent. You have so many choices uptown of good hotels in the $600-1,200 price bracket and this to me is the best value. The Carlyle and Four Seasons are great; they are also a significant amount more $ for not a significant amount more hotel. The Mark...

Perfect location of the hotel, quite, very near to Central Park. Extremely nice staff, very good food recommendations. Room was very nice. Breakfast took too long, but was very good. A good alternative to the big Hotels in New York.

If you want a quite, pleasant and smaller hotel, this is the place to stay on the Upper East Side. Exceptional staff that will make you feel welcome. Rooms are beautiful, and location is exceptional. Fabulous shops and restaurants within walking distance. You will feel like you are living in your own private apartment in the neighborhood.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
