A beautiful classic on the Upper East Side. Loved The Surrey. It will be "our" place when we go back. We spent 4 days to celebrate our 25th. I can't imagine staying anywhere else. The service and food were excellent, the Penthouse had a spectacular view, and the beds were so comfortable! Thank you Rocky and Pablo for being so... More

Next time I return, will be going back home to the Surrey......Rooms were large, bath tubs large and deep. Beds. Wow. The best hotel beds I have slept in.

My wife and I went for a quick romantic getaway. Our first impression was that we were about to be pampered. The moment we stepped out of the car service in front of the Surrey we were greeted by a gentleman with a "Welcome Mr. and Mrs. C***N. It was as if we had stayed there dozens of times prior... More

I was there on a business trip and it was lovely. Like everything in NYC it was expensive, but the vibe was very East Side and therefore a bit of a respite in NYC. I had room service twice and it was quick an delicious. The rooms are classically beautiful and by NYC standards spacious and very updated. Plus the... More

We have just stayed for 5 days at the Surrey and found it a perfect base for exploring NYC with our 11 year old. Our deluxe suite was spacious and had a great sofa bed for kids - quite often the lounge bed is an uncomfortable afterthought - but not here - the mattress was lovely and our son slept... More

First time stay at The Surrey and it was a pleasant surprise. All was pretty perfect and we are now spoiled for the area. A wonderfully quiet leafy street with great local crowd frequenting the Café Boulud which is fantastic. Rooms are elegant and comfortable and beautifully appointed. Great beds, two comfy oversized chairs for curling up and reading, good... More

Quick check in, very attentive and friendly staff. View to central park from our room. Awesome roof top bar. Great location close to 5th Avenue and Central park ... Nothing to complain! We'll come back.

I really enjoyed staying at the Surrey. The hotel is located on a quiet block on the Upper East Side of NYC. It's close to museums, restaurants, shopping, and Central Park. The room was great, the service was first class, and they even have a nice roof-top bar.

We absolutely loved staying here. The room (a studio suite) had a private balcony, which was very nice. The rooftop bar is a very nice touch and the live jazz on Friday evening in the Lobby bar was warm and welcoming. Plus it helps that the hotel is sitting just of Madison ave a block away from Central Park,

We have traveled to New York many times and this is our favorite hotel. It is beautifully decorated, very clean, and the staff is so professional. They know how to cater to the guests, and we are never disappointed.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods 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 neighborhood, 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.
