Upper Eastside Gem

Old Lyme, Connecticut

Great location on UES. Lovely hotel. Great Daniel Boulud restaurant, which is also the same menu for room service. Outstanding. Three Guys diner around the corner for casual dining. The Carlyle across the street for a memorable cocktail at Bemelmans Bar.

Upgraded on wedding night to Presidential Suite!

The Surrey Hotel is one of the finest hotels in NYC. The decor is trendy and classic at the same time and has an uptown vibe for the UES. Highly recommend the hotel bar, especially for jazz on Friday nights! Fatima upgraded us to the Presidential Suite for our wedding night. The room is absolutely incredible! Thank you for the incredible stay!
