Manhattan's classic Jazz Age hotel
Since its opening in 1927, The Sherry-Netherland has been a Central Park favorite and a Fifth Avenue landmark thanks to its stunning architecture and Gothic minaret. Its signature sidewalk clock denotes the hotel’s entrance, leading you into an intimate marble lobby with 18-foot vaulted ceilings. The lobby was actually patterned after the Vatican Library, so you’ll see touches such as crystal chandeliers, marble columns and original paintings. The tradition continues in the attended elevators; they’re lined with hand-painted rare woods from the Vanderbilt mansion that once stood one block south of The Sherry.
Each of the 50 rooms, including 20 suites, is individually designed, bringing an even more unique aspect into the equation. The accommodations at the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel harken back to the good old days of grand size — something that’s all but forgotten in New York. Even the smallest rooms are spacious at 340 square feet. It’s hard to find a bad view during a stay at The Sherry, as many rooms look onto Central Park.
The European elegance also seeps into the hotel’s restaurant, Harry Cipriani. From the same family behind the famous Harry’s Bar in Venice, Italy, the classic restaurant is popular among hotel guests and Upper East Side neighbors alike.
