What’s New York like without Manhattan? No one can imagine that, especially the locals. Manhattan isn’t just the most progressive borough in the city that never sleeps, but it is a world of its own. Name everything you want to see and do in NYC and you’ll most likely realize it’s all in Manhattan. Therefore, it’s fitting for you, as a traveler, to stay where convenience, comfort, and luxury are. These boutique hotels in Manhattan, New York offer all the three without breaking the bank.
A ten-minute walk away from the American Natural History Museum, Hotel Belleclaire is a good choice for families who want to explore the museum with their kids. Central Park is nearby, waiting to be explored, too. The hotel is in a heritage building where the legendary American writer Mark Twain resided. From there, the subway is a short walk, and excellent dining options are abundant in the neighborhood. You like arts? Beacon Theater is at the corner and the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts is less than a kilometer away.
When checking in at Dumont NYC, ask for a room that has the view of Chrysler Building, the city’s most beautiful building according to me. See it for yourself when it’s lit up at night, and you’ll surely agree. The hotel is close to the Flat Iron Building, Macy’s Herald Square, Empire State Building, and Madison Square Garden. Their spacious rooms have kitchens and personal telescopes you can use to appreciate the city’s skyline any time you wish. They have seasonal complimentary bikes, too, that you can ride on to explore the East River or the famed Central Park.
This modern lifestyle hotel cuts above the rest in the neighborhood. The lobby is lovely decorated with jazz-inspired designs. On foot, you can easily reach the Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the UN Headquarters, and 5th Avenue – the shopping mecca of designer goods. Right at the heart of Manhattan, The Lexington New York once housed the late American bombshell Marilyn Monroe and baseball legend Joe DiMaggio in Suite 1806 (The Centerfield Suite).
If you’re coming to New York City during a New Year’s Eve celebration and you really want to be near the ball drop, then Hilton Times Square has you covered.

This is one of the few hotels in New York that offers free wi-fi throughout the building.
