Thanks to its prime location across from the main entrance of Central Park, The Sherry-Netherland is a great home base for any New York City trip. During the spring and summer, the expansive park draws runners, tourists and leisurely walkers. It’s also when the trees are a rich green and the sun is shining. Of course, it’s hard to beat the fall foliage in Central Park. And with a view like the one you’ll have at The Sherry, it’s unrivaled. The air is crisp, the temperatures are mild — it’s a wonderful time of year on the Upper East Side. But then that legendary holiday season comes roaring in and New York turns into a winter wonderland. When you’re staying at the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel, you’re a quick walk away from top-notch shopping (think Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman and Barneys New York) for last-minute gifts. Like at any hotel in the city, the holiday season is going to be more expensive than other times of year — but it’s totally worth it in our opinion.
