We recently chose the Surrey for our stay based in the reviews that I read. The hotel staff incredibly friendly and helpful! In a very safe and quiet area just a few steps away from Central Park. The concierge, Chris, was extremely helpful and help make several arrangements prior to our visit. One of which, was a private tour of the sights we wanted to see. John, our tour guide was simply amazing and made our trip!!! We made so many beautiful memories and can’t wait to return again. Thanks to all at The Surrey, including KoKo for going above and beyond to help us out! ❤️

Everything about the Surrey is top-notch. We enjoyed every second of our stay. The room was exactly as described, with an excellent Central Park partial view. The Roof-Top bar was worth the price of admission. The service was incomparable.
