Boutique Hotel

New York City is nothing shy of overwhelmingly large. And, when you plan a trip to the Big Apple you are forced to make choices because you just can’t see it all in one trip. A hotel stay is one of the most important decisions because you can only choose one. So, why not make it something more intimate that will give you a breather from the business? Dare we say a boutique hotel?

Before you pass on the idea, think about it. Just 120 rooms [or fewer] with unique identities encapsulated in their design which takes you into a different era of time after finishing your day navigating the concrete jungle.

Check out these 4 boutique hotels that will be worth your time, money, and sleep when visiting New York City.

Boutique Hotels By The Bearings

Upper Manhatten

The Lowell

Located just a block away from Central Park, this beautiful boutique stay is on East 63rd Street. It offers only 74 rooms with marble bathrooms, five-star hospitality, and a calming energy. Eye-catching flower arrangements decorate restaurant Majorelle which serves French and Moroccan Cuisine. If you’re looking for a city trip with an upscale and residential feel well, this is where you need to book.


High Line Hotel

This tiny but special stay is nostalgic with a hint of Chelsea’s past. The building itself was built in 1895 as a Collegiate Gothic Seminary. In fact (if you’re a history lover) this is where Clement C Moore penned the Night Before Christmas. Anyways, the gothic red brick building withholds 60 rooms and offers an Intelligentsia coffee bar, a gem of a private garden, oversized beds, and locally sourced furniture

Lower Manhattan

Crosby Street Hotel

Crosby Street is a cobblestone street tucked away in the heart of the beloved SoHo. This 86-room boutique hotel welcomes guests into a private garden, a 99-seat screening room, and a fully equipped gym. Each room is its own work of art with natural light pouring in to highlight the colorful, contemporary, and floral design scheme. If shopping is your motive and you need a full weekend of it, well, SoHo and the Crosby Street Hotel are it for you.

Mr. C Seaport

For families searching for a stay that benefits the adults and the kids, look no further. Mr. C Seaport is a boutique spot in the Financial District with an intimate room count of just 66. This laid-back high-end boutique hotel brings you skyline views which might we add are spectacular, and delicious Italian food that you’ll dream about. The Little C Program gives kids their own New York City experience along with coloring books and homemade treats.
