Why Stay At The Sherry-Netherland
The Sherry-Netherland's old-world décor and iconic location—across from Central Park on Fifth Avenue, in the heart of midtown's most fashionable shopping district—make this an extra-convenient and elegant base for a trip to New York City.
Situated directly across from Central Park in the center of midtown Manhattan, this grand-scale boutique hotel has a sumptuous feel, from its opulent lobby that was modeled after the Vatican Library to its intricate mosaic floors and manned elevators. Originally designed in the 1920s as residences, the hotel today features 50 classically decorated rooms draped in calm tones of white and beige accented with fresh flowers. Don't miss the on-site museum-quality vintage jewelry store, A La Vieille Russie, whose friendly and encyclopedic staff will tell you colorful histories of each piece. There are also popular hair salons for women (Garren, a favorite of fashion editors) and men (the Emile Salon). Guests, as well as New York's chic social set, flock to Harry Cipriani, the hotel's restaurant, for its tuna tartare, trademark bellinis, and upscale European-tinged atmosphere.
Avoid the crowds and enjoy a delicious—and laid-back—breakfast at Harry Cipriani. Its perfect demitasses of espresso rev you up after a night out in the city that never sleeps.
Men, don't miss having an old-fashioned shave at the hotel's Emile Salon.
Arrive at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) which is approximately 18 miles (about 30-45 minutes depending on traffic) away from the hotel.781 Fifth Ave., New York, New York, United States

Why We Love New York
New York offers something for everyone—culture, cuisine, shopping, and more—and is especially picturesque in wintertime, when snow blankets Central Park and the city's architecture shimmers in the soft winter light.
Ladurée New York.
Central Park Zoo: Located just a few blocks north of the hotel, the Central Park Zoo is a New York institution. See polar bears, penguins, snow monkeys, and California sea lions, whose three-times-a-day feedings are a star attraction.
Central Park (at the 64th Street and Fifth Avenue entrance).
Tickets for two $24.
Where to Eat: Ladies who lunch—along with power brokers, fashion editors, and the all-around glamorous—flock to Fred's at Barneys New York for its accommodating service and stylish scene, not to mention its chopped chicken salad.
660 Madison Ave. 1-212-833-2200
Lunch for two $100.
Where to Caffeinate: When you're inside Bottega del Vino, it's easy to pretend that you're at a friendly family-run trattoria in an Italian village and not smack in the middle of Manhattan, which makes it a wonderful stop for a cappuccino and apricot cornetto.
