The Surrey Hotel Review

: Though this hotel has been updated for the modern age, it's not hard to imagine John F. Kennedy or Bette Davis waiting in the lobby of the former residential property --- especially since both were one-time guests, along with many other notables. Today The Surrey provides travelers with an ultra relaxing place to rest between visits to Upper East Side spots such as the Whitney Museum of American Art and the boutiques along Madison Avenue. The hotel offers a modern fitness center, a small meeting room and the very sophisticated and highly regarded Café Boulud, under the supervision of noted celebrity chef Daniel Boulud. It can also be counted on for its attentive staff members, who are as reliable and welcoming as ever. The 190 guest rooms (called salons) and suites are large and pleasant, and all have kitchenettes and dining areas. Amenities at this pet-friendly property include high-speed Internet access, dual-line speaker phones with data ports, LCD TVs, iPod docks, robes and standards such as safes, irons/ironing boards and hair dryers. Guests who book a suite also enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi, shoe shine, newspaper and a welcome amenity. In warm weather, relax in the private rooftop garden or borrow a (complimentary) Bobbin bicycle and pedal over to Central Park.
