City Club Hotel
Owned by obsessively private hotelier Jeff Klein, this pint-sized retreat – 65 rooms in all – is one of the dreamiest boutique hotels in New York City for the incognito traveler, with its small lobby space free from excessive loiterers and plenty of high-end amenities that make guests feel right at home. Rooms were decorated by fashionable interior star Jeffrey Bilhuber, and master chef Daniel Boulud has kept crowds creatively fed at his acclaimed DB Bistro Moderne in the lobby. An exclusive yet accessible vibe runs through the quiet property – a reflection of its regular monied clientele, of which hard-partying celebrities are intentionally absent. Frette linens, mahogany wood, chrome fixtures, and brown marble baths stocked with C.O. Bigelow products give each room a well-planned feeling of decadence, while a TV obscured by mirrors, carefully selected art collection, and original furniture give guests a true aesthetic treat.
