Refusing to be outdone by its Upper East Side setting, The Surrey is grand and gracious, with a restaurant, bar and spa to rival the city’s finest. This boutique hotel has lashings of glamour from top (the 17th-floor roof garden) to toe (sumptuous sink-into paisley carpets). New York's 'Museum Mile' is on your doorstep – the museums lining Fifth Avenue are some of the world's greatest cultural institutions.
