    Warm and welcoming

    The Stanhope describes itself as a 'boutique hotel'. I would call it cozy - almost homelike - built to a comfortable scale.

    From the modest lobby, French doors lead to the dining room and picture windows facing 5th Avenue towards the Metropolitan Museum. White table linens and fresh flowers set the stage for a delicious light lunch. In the evening, the room is transformed into a supper club with live piano or a vocalist. Service is unhurried. It's a nice place to meet a friend for a long chat.

    How many hotels still have a library? The Stanhope does. A wood-panelled room with classic Queen Anne furnishings and real bookshelves makes for a family gathering spot - or a cozy corner for a late-night drink from the adjacent bar.

    Bedrooms are spacious, quiet and comfortable. Mine overlooked a courtyard garden and faced west, giving a good view of the Chrysler Building and its art deco tower.

    Unique Quality: Located on 5th Avenue, directly across from the Met and Central Park, the Stanhope is perfect for a weekend of museum visits. The Whitney and the Guggenheim are within easy walking distance.

    Price-conscious diners will be happy to know that deli's and coffee shops are only steps away, around the corner on Madison Ave.

    Directions: 5th Avenue and 81st Street

    accomodations are definitely more expensive than the usual. but for those who can afford it, it's definitely worth it. we lucked out with priceline.com -- $1320 for 7 nights.

    service was friendly, but very slow to get us to our room. we flew the red-eye and got to the hotel at 7a. we understood that check-in was not until 3p, but we were promised a room at 11a (maid service begins at 9a). we were ok with it since we wanted to get some breakfast and walk around the neighborhood (get to know what's around, what's available where, etc.) ... well, we didn't get our room assignment until 3p; i had been asleep on one of the uncomfortable chairs in the reception area for at least an hour, before we were given a room... in their defense, however, it was a busy weekend (i watched a parade outside the hotel before i fell asleep in the hotel lobby); and the stanhope was at full capacity.

    posh upper east side location; across the street from the metropolitan museum; easy access to central park -- cross from the east to the west side (average 10 min walk)... wonderful during the spring especially or fall...

    Unique Quality: bedding is magnificent -- fluffy down comforters; room was bigger than the average single new york city hotel rooms; in-room safe was also big enough to accomodate my ibook. high speed internet access also available.

    the hotel is definitely a wonderful alternative to the busy, tourist-filled streets that most visitors stay at (midtown area).

    the hotel has been remodeled.

    Directions: 5th ave and 81st st -- subway lines 4,5 & 6 stop at 86th and lexington; subway line 6 stop at 77th and lexington; or just keep walking south (either on 5th ave or madison ave) if you're in a shopping mood :-)
