“Excellent Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We picked this hotel largely for its #1 review on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed.
My wife and I had a weekend stay and it seemed as if were the only people in the hotel, we never saw anyone else in the elevator or the hallways.

First the hotel is beautiful.. Old world, clean, the elevators have the most beautiful paintings said to be from a Vanderbilt mansion. Our room was a single and it was good sized especially for NYC. Our room had a safe and the refrigerator was stocked with soda and water which the bellman said would be replenished free of charge and they were. We felt very safe there and it was quiet at night.

The entire staff was friendly and professional, from the front desk, bellmen and the elevator operators. It was a classy operation. Chocolates in your room and turn down service, what's not too like? Complimentary lemon cookies with coffee is a nice, delicious touch. Everyone was helpful with tips on places to eat and sights to see.

The Cipriani restaurant on the first floor is a trip, great people watching. Way overpriced, seemed to be rich people looking to make to make the scene. Some odd pairings. The staff however was again excellent, Pouring Bellinis ( champagne and white peach juice) freely and dessert after dessert. Overall fun as after two Bellinis you can't take anything too seriously.

Last the location was excellent. Directly across from Central Park and on Fifth Ave close to shopping.

The Sherry is not cheap, but we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and will return.

What can I say. This place is perfect.

1) You can't beat the location. Its across the street from Central Park and the NRQ trains.
2) All employees were helpful and courteous. If we needed directions, advice on local dining, reservations, or room service they did not disappoint. Also their advice for a great cup of coffee or some of the most satisfying sushi was well appreciated.
3) The history of the hotel is intriguing. You're transported to a lush way of living once you walk into the lobby. Amazing architecture, historical art, and details that make the eyes wander.
4) The rooms are regal. Extremely comfortable with a lush feel. Just amazing charm. More charm than any other hotel I ever stayed at. Very impressive.
5) Just a great place to enjoy. It has so much to offer.

This review is long overdue. The two of us wanted a special and romantic place to stay for New Years Eve. We could not have picked a better hotel. The location is perfect and we walked across the street to Central Park to see the fireworks.

All members of the concierge gave us exceptional attention and made us feel as if we were the only guests. We became quite comfortable coming back each day to friendly faces and an inviting room after a busy NY day.

The rooms are beautiful and full of wonderful details. The little box of chocolate in our room reminds us of such an amazing experience, we are using it as the box to hold our rings at our wedding rings this August!

I'd give it 10 stars if I could!

Room Tip: Even if your outside view is simple, turn around an enjoy how gorgeous the rooms are inside!

My wife and I stayed at the Sherry Netherland in a one bedroom suite for a week in mid June. This was our second visit over the last 12 months and it was again a very happy experience. Staff at the front desk greeted us with genuine warmth and made us feel " at home" right away! The accommodation is spacious at the Sherry and furnishings of high quality. We had one of the most comfortable beds to sleep in and the bathroom was quite large by NY Hotel standards. But the standout feature is the service - Sherry staff are all just so friendly and helpful. They are obviously well selected and highly trained. Well done! We look forward to our next visit to this wonderful hotel.

"Old School Elegance" Staying at the Sherry is the way staying at a hotel used to be! Providing superior accommodations; large room, very quiet, complimentary soft drinks, water and toiletries, and turn down service, the Sherry exceeded my expectations. The staff could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable. Highly recommend to anyone looking for that home away from home luxury experience.

Room Tip: The rooms are very large, if you are not particular about a view, the interior rooms offer the best...

We chose the Sherry Netherland for a trip to celebrate my son's 16th birthday. Our purpose was to see the museums, central park and a show. I wanted something unique and different and the Sherry did not disappoint. The 2 room suite (207) overlooked Cartier and the Apple store, the bathroom was a great size. The living room was spacious. Loved the small kitchen with Kuerig and fridge stocked with waters and soda ( all complimentary). What really impressed was the personal service and attention to detail. From the minute we arrived, my son was greeted and wished a Happy Birthday, check in was quick and pleasant, valet parking was no hassle. The bellman who showed us our room ( I believe it was Mauro) could not have been more helpful. Jacqueline Acosta who assisted with my reservation took such good care, answering all my questions pre-visit. The birthday card, and cupcakes with candles waiting by the fresh flowers was an impressive touch. No request was any problem. Each and every member of the staff we encountered was so pleasant and kind. We were sad to check out after the weekend ended. The Sherry will definitely be the hotel selected when I return to New York City.

We've stayed at the Sherry-Netherland for years and its always perfect. But, somehow it just keeps improving. The lobby renovations are almost complete and look spectacular. The suites are all different, but all beautiful and exceedingly comfortable. Service is so friendly and attentive you feel as if you are the only ones there. We find the fluffy comforters too hot, so the first night replaced the one on the bed with the blanket from the closet. On subsequent nights, during turn-down service, housekeeping made up the bed that way. It's just one example of the attention to detail here. The location alone would make this an easy choice, but with everything else to recommend it, we never consider trying another New York hotel.
