About this property

The Surrey

Luxury New York hotel in Manhattan, walk to Central Park
Timezone: America/New_York

Built pre-war in Beaux-Arts architectural design, The Surrey has concluded a $60 million dollar recreation by renowned architectural and interior designer Lauren Rottet. The hotel remains rooted in its turn-of-the-century Upper East Side heritage with ornate limestone facades and marble columns and floors in the lobby.  Adding an unexpected twist, the hotel is accented with an eclectic collection of art and custom-designed residential furnishings such as hand-tooled leather on the check-in desk and antique rugs expressed in mosaic tiles. Evoking a black and white photograph, Rottet used a refined palette of textures, depth and hues of cream, silver, gray, light tobacco and black to provide a timeless stage for the vibrancy each guest brings to the hotel.

3/5 Okay

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Although the hotel is extremely well located and the room sizes are great, it needs love & a good update. Rooms have objects that are "semi-broken" (like a lamp) and water damage (in the ceiling). After the entrance there is a "lounging" area with tables, were bubbles are present from the wall paper. But the worse part is the fact that staff does not care about you. I cannot count the number fo times I had to open the front door and the door to the street (two heavy doors) in the 6 days I was there. The receptionists are always talking to each other and ignore guests passing by. This is such an iconic hotel, how can manage let this happen?

A great location for shopping and eating. Not great if your business is mostly on the West Side.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Location is great, value for what you receive as a guest could be better. Our bathroom had a window which is a plus for me personally and our room had excellent view to Madison Ave and the City. Some of the staff were polite and welcoming although this was not universal. At the time of check in, we were sent to a room which was not ready and filled with tobacco smell (it’s a nonsmoking hotel and obviously I don’t blame the hotel management for this), which has happened to me before in different ways, although the issue was addressed with some degree of nonchalance on behalf of the staff which was a little unexpected given the price level of this hotel. On average I stay in various 4 and 5 star hotels in the City twice a month and although incidents like this have happened to me in the past, they were handled much more tactfully.
