• Issue 7: New York

      Elegant and luxurious without being too old-fashioned, The Surrey is a smartly located hotel steps from Museum Mile, Central Park and all the glittery shops of 5th and Madison Avenues. With a rooftop garden that boasts one of the best views in town, modern design, attentive staffers and great food—Daniel Boulud’s Café Boulud is downstairs, and does room service—this is a fine choice for a splurge. Bonus: It’s dog-friendly.
