Where are the best places to stay in New York?

We know how important it is to be in the heart of the action when you're on a New York city break, and with hundreds of hotels across a number of neighbourhoods, you’re bound to find your perfect stay. With five boroughs ripe for exploration, New York has one of the most exciting hotel scenes in the world. Most first-time visitors base themselves in Manhattan, which is home to the city’s famous sights – and certainly isn’t short of hotel choices, from budget to boutique. But if you’re looking to get to know a different side to the city, its other boroughs have plenty of options, too.

The Upper East Side is all about old-school glamour, with easy access to the Guggenheim, the Met and Madison Avenue’s high-end boutiques. Midtown Manhattan encompasses a host of must-see sights, from the Empire State Building and Times Square to Broadway and Radio City Music Hall. Over on the west side, the once gritty Meatpacking District is all about glamorous foodie hotspots, rooftop bars and, of course, the High Line, while the Lower East Side’s art galleries, party scene and brunch spots cater to students, artists and fashionistas alike.
