From the Park Hyatt New York to The Plaza just off Central Park, get the true New York experience at one of these iconic hotels for groups. These opulent hotels for groups from trusted names such as Four Seasons and Mandarin Oriental offer the absolute height of luxury.
Four Seasons Hotel New York
Located between Park Avenue and Madison Avenue, the 52-story Four Seasons boasts 368 rooms, including 17 Studios and 286 Junior Suites. It’s one of the best hotels for groups in town, with 57 one and two bedroom suites, and five Speciality Suites. Meanwhile, 23 of the rooms come with their own private outdoor terraces. On average, the hotel offers the largest standard guest rooms in New York. The 535 staff members are known for treating guests like royalty: an overnight stay entitles you to unlimited use of the Health Club, including the steam and sauna rooms, plus complimentary Wi-Fi, daily newspapers and even an on demand shoe shining service!
Park Hyatt New York
When it comes to hotels for groups that offer extensive accommodation choices, nothing beats the Midtown-located Park Hyatt. With 210 guest rooms across 15 floors, there are an impressive 11 different room types, including 92 suites – among them, for example, the Two Double Studio Suite, which offers between 700 and 800 square feet of space. The Living Room, a 30-seater restaurant, offers classic New Yorker fare. It’s designed to feel like a modern, hip NYC apartment, much like the guest rooms themselves. Be sure to try out the 1,845 square-foot gym, which overlooks the Manhattan skyline.
Taking up the corner of Fifth Avenue and 58th Street on the edge of the sprawling Central Park, The Plaza – designed like a French chateau – is one of New York City’s most famous hotels. It’s also one of its most luxurious, having undergone a stunning $450m restoration across its 19 floors in 2008. Opened in 1907, it has played host to many famous names, such as The Beatles, and later John Lennon and Yoko Ono. It’s also featured in classic films such as The Way We Were, Home Alone 2 and Almost Famous, plus HBO’s iconic TV show Sex and the City. It was recognised as a National Historic Landmark in 1986.
Mandarin Oriental New York
NYC is one of the most international cities in the world, and last on our list of hotels for groups and bringing Eastern style to The Big Apple’s hoteling scene is this 244-room hotel: the jewel in the crown of the Mandarin Oriental’s illustrious portfolio. It only opened in 2003, but has made its mark on Manhattan with its stellar service, chic furnishings and gorgeous views; like The Plaza, it’s located on the edge of Central Park, this time on Columbus Circle, and thus offers gorgeous views that extend as far as the Hudson River. Its acclaimed on-site restaurant Asiate, meanwhile, had floor-to-ceiling panoramic views. Be sure to drink up the super cool glamour at The Aviary NYC, a bar-restaurant, and The Office NYC, a speakeasy, both on the 35th floor.
