“interesting touch”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

Spooky in an interesting way, all those bald lift attentands! The location is great, indeed – but there are a lot of great locatiosn in NY. Cipriani not bad at all, though a bit dusty, the entire hotel is actually. There is not much of lobby, but I agree its not such a big lose. Rooms were nice, even if we had them viewing the internal courtyard.
And my 6years old remembers the hotel as the one with chair in the lift.

I go to NYC very often for shopping, to get my hair done, go to some dr. appts, these trips are usually solo. I also go with my husband and children during Christmas, and occasionally throughout the year. This is my favorite hotel on the East side, and I have stayed in many. The first time I stayed here I joked with Russell, the man at the front desk that they would probably have to remove me with police force because I loved it so much. One of the things that I find so amazing about the Sherry is that I find myself never asking for anything, because they have already thought of everything. The rooms are enormous, comfortable, the staff is attentive and lovely, I love the fact that beverages and wifi are included. The soaking tub and bathrooms are awesome. There is absolutely no street noise, which is kind of amazing given the location. The location could not be better, you are on the edge of central park, you can walk to any store you could ever want, as well as so many delicious restaurants nearby. There have been a few occasions where they have been booked up, but otherwise, I don't stay anywhere else, I simply don't want to.

Everyone was friendly and the rooms were large. Staying in such a wonderful and friendly place made our trip even that much better. My husband is a runner so being across from Central Park was an added bonus. Already planning another trip there in the fall.

Ever since we started staying at this hotel four years ago, we have will never go to another hotel. From the time you check-in, the friendly staff make sure your stay is perfect. We always enjoy seeing how our room or suite is decorated as every one is different. We enjoy having a lemoncello next door at Cipriani's before retiring at night.

Picture perfect 1st family visit to NYC, and the Sherry played a huge part. Top to bottom this is a CLASS operation, from the minute you arrive you are treated with white gloved service, doormen, bellman, desk, housekeeping, just excellent.

Last minute reservations to Peter Luger's after a broadway show? Renee at the desk made it happen like she had drinks with the host over there on a regular basis! Pointers from the bellmen on shopping, cheap eats - you got it. Housekeeping spoils you w/ the in room coffee, water and drinks (all complimentary) you need, chocolates @ turndown, and seems like they refresh the room every time you leave - I swear!

Then you have the location, which is smack dab in the middle of midtown and the UES... And right across the street from Central Park. Carriage ride anytime you want, FAO Schwartz @ Apple store across 59th street... 10 minute walk to John's Pizzera on 44th, w/ Prada & Lindt chocolates, and Halal/Hotdog vendors at all times of the day for some NYC street food on the way.

If you want pampering and location, you can't do better!

Lovely little hotel and the rooms we had were nice enough, but I found nothing super spectacular about this place. It is across from the park and right next to The Pierre with all the great shopping nearby, as well, but I like many others in NYC better. I did, though, ride up in the elevator with Diana Ross (she was real sweet). I believe she lives here part time. It's a pretty nice hotel, but not what I'd expected for the amount of $$$ we paid (pretty pricey).

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the city, not the fire escape... unless you don't care about that.

My husband and I recently visited the Sherry Netherland for a weekend trip to NY and this hotel was in the perfect location. On the SE corner of Central park, the hotels location on 5th ave. was picturesque! Also, many shops and resturants are within walking distance.

The hotels offers amazing suites, with separate kitchens, living and bedrooms. Plenty of space, yet comfortable ammenities. The beds and pillows were the most comfortable we have ever experienced! The old world design accents of the hotel make the experience that much more memorable.

The entire staff from the front desk to the elevator attendent were always smiling and ready to help with anything their guests need. The definately put their customers needs first. We cant wait to visit this hotel again!

Room Tip: Inside suites are very quiet and comfortable.
