The Surrey Hotel offers luxury accommodations amid its own spectacular collection of original modern works. From the private rooftop garden to the Michelin-starred Café Boulud, the amenities at this recently renovated hotel in the heart of Manhattan’s Upper East Side are carefully curated with the most discerning traveler in mind.
Traditional sophistication meets modern comfort at the Surrey Hotel on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Located where New York City’s famed Museum Mile meets Madison Avenue, this historic New York hotel features a mini-MoMA’s worth of show-stopping modern art by celebrated artists such as American sculptor Richard Serra and Chuck Close. A $60-million renovation in 2009 overhauled the Surrey, a storied 1926 landmark that was once home to JFK and Bette Davis. When it re-opened, guests were dazzled by the 31 original modern works, including a large-scale portrait of model Kate Moss by American artist Chuck Close. It hangs in the lobby and takes up the entire wall from foot to ceiling.
The rooms at the Surrey Hotel feature the utmost in comfort and style, with deluxe Duxiana beds and custom Sferra linens, hand-painted wardrobes, over-sized desks with built-in vanities and tranquil sitting areas. Some salons feature fireplaces, private terraces and soaking tubs. All the amenities and deluxe comforts of home in New York.
Guests can unwind in the private rooftop garden on the 17th floor or indulge in a relaxing massage at the Spa. And, of course, you wouldn’t want to miss a meal by Chef Daniel Boulud, one of the great masters of marrying French cuisine with fine seasonal American ingredients. The on-site Café Boulud boasts a Michelin star for this renowned chef’s remarkable cuisine. After a fine meal, head out to explore the scenery at Central Park or visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art, all of which are conveniently located near The Surrey Hotel.
