There really is nothing like visiting New York City for the first time. Each neighborhood offers something different, from hidden eateries and hip bars to endless parks and renowned museums. Manhattan happens to be home to some of the world’s most luxurious hotels, including a Duchess-approved penthouse and Robert De Niro’s Tribeca bolthole. We detail the best of the best below.
Hidden away in trendy Tribeca, Robert De Niro’s Greenwich Hotel is set along a cobblestone street, just a block from the Hudson River. There’s a heady mix of international influences here, with Moroccan tiles, Italian marble, English leather and Tibetan silk rugs, and the courtyard mimics the feel of a Marrakech riad. Rooms vary in size and style; some boast private saunas, while others come with river views. Carve out time for the Shibui Spa – its heated indoor pool inside a lantern-lit bamboo farmhouse will soothe the senses.
