A nice cozy place to spend a weekend in NYC. Great location.

New York

We continue to enjoy our accommodations at the Surrey. The location next to the park and upper East Side restaurants is perfect and our rooms are large and comfortable. It can be pricey, but many off season deals are available. Don't miss breakfasts as Cafe Baloud.

Great bar with a hotel attached,or is it reverse!

New Canaan, Connecticut

The Surrey is a "right sized" hotel. Not too big,not too small. The rooms are opulent and fresh,decorated in a classic decor.The bathrooms are rich and feature shower heads that are like fire hoses,its hard to stop showering its so good.The gem of a hotel bar is just the right amount of dark and private,with seating you could sit in and say"just one more for the road". The neighbor hood is great as well,and easy access to the park.
