New York

21 Club
Classic, old-school restaurant with a private members' club feel for Midtown power brokers...
Amore Pacific
The perfect place to spend the day relaxing under expert hands...
Andaz Wall Street
It may be blocks from the New York Stock Exchange, but Andaz Wall Street is much too stylish to be relegated to the “business hotel” category.
Arlington Club
The Arlington Club is an Upper East Side steakhouse with lashings of old world style and a menu that tempts with far more than its prime Meyer Farm beef.
Avenue
Glamorous decor with fine design flourishes. Pulsing sounds and an A-list crowd.
B.B. King Blues
Legendary guitarist BB King's NYC live music venue can be a little 'destination' for some...
Baccarat Hotel
A high-end hotel with a luxurious heritage, the Baccarat Hotel is a glittering addition to the Midtown hotel scene with Parisian flair and a Spa de La Mer.
Bar Americain
Superchef Bobby Flay's interpretation of the Brasserie is a triumph. From seafood to steaks; it is stunning.
Bliss Soho
Relax at this global neighbourhood spa chain in the heart of SoHo...
BLT Steak
Cocktails and steak we find it hard to think of a more compelling combination.

A landmark on the New York culinary scene. This is the place for late night dining.
Bouley
Inspired Italian fare comes as standard at Bouley, with a mouthwatering Mediterranean menu that please even the most discerning critic.

Campbell Apartment

Chelsea
Moving from the Meatpacking district towards Flatiron and Union Square make sure to take in West 18th Street and West 22nd Street. From Barney's to Balenciaga there is much here to satisfy the fashionista.
Cipriani Downtown
Dress in the day's designer purchases and join the jet-set crowd for Bellinis and people watching.
City Center
NY City Center is known for its expressive dance and dramatic theatre...
Club Macanudo
Old school elegance for serious cocktails and cigars...
Cornelia
Forget the frenetic pace of New York City at Cornelia Day Resort; you'll leave here feeling like a million bucks...

Spacious and sumptuous rooms; a recent $85 million dollar facelift has been money well spent.

Del Posto brings fine dining charm to Italian cusine and does so with aplomb.
Dovetail

East Village & Noho
Whilst this area lacks the high-octane impact of Soho's shops there are some great alternative boutiques to be found - particularly if you're a vintage fan.
Eleven Madison Park
This is the one everyone's talking about - Eleven Madison Park is slowly creeping up the list of the World's Best Restaurants...
Exhale
Luxury, contemplative chain of upmarket spas around the US...
Financial District & Tribeca
Whilst the Financial District and Tribeca are not renowned shopping areas many Manhattanites make the trek downtown to rummage through Century 21 for bargains Sex and the City's Carrie would kill for.
Flatiron & Union Square
A potter around Broadway Fifth Avenue and Union Square will yield some treasures. If it's good weather join the crowds at the Shake Shack for a snack or indulge in a languid lunch at Gramercy Tavern.
Flatiron Lounge
Old school elegance and delicious cocktails at an old Sinatra hang-out...
Four Seasons
it's been deemed grand and glorious, dining at the Four Seasons is a moment of arrival. Classic New York as you're going to get.
Garment & Theater Districts

Situated in the private Gramercy park the hotel offers a refuge from the hectic city streets.
Gramercy Tavern
Gramercy Tavern is the quintessential modern New York restaurant...
Hakkasan
