Hotel Chatter's 11 Best NYC Hotels For Fall 2012

November 9, 2012 at 3:29 PM | by | ()

We've noticed a few major changes in the New York hotel scene over the past year. First off, prices are higher than ever. This is something that became quite obvious in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, with some hotels last week charging upwards of $300/night last week, even though rooms had no electricity, heat or hot water.

But then again, with both the WSJ and the NY Times agreeing that there's a major "hotel boom" happening in New York right now, this was hardly surprising.

Secondly, Brooklyn is hotter than ever. And with good reason—head across the East River, and you're likely to find more space, hipper crowds, and (relatively) low prices. For evidence of that, see #2 on our list.

And things are still heating up: last week, we learned of a new mega project going up in Times Square that will include a 500-room hotel. Add to that, CitizenM, Virgin, Dorchester Collection, Edition, Public and SLS are all coming to NYC in the near future.

But enough recapping. Time for the list! Here's a look at the best (according to us, anyway) hotels right now in NYC. Agree? Disagree? Need to vent? Drop a comment below!
