“Nice, but nothing extraordinary”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

Lovely little hotel and the rooms we had were nice enough, but I found nothing super spectacular about this place. It is across from the park and right next to The Pierre with all the great shopping nearby, as well, but I like many others in NYC better. I did, though, ride up in the elevator with Diana Ross (she was real sweet). I believe she lives here part time. It's a pretty nice hotel, but not what I'd expected for the amount of $$$ we paid (pretty pricey).

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the city, not the fire escape... unless you don't care about that.

My husband and I recently visited the Sherry Netherland for a weekend trip to NY and this hotel was in the perfect location. On the SE corner of Central park, the hotels location on 5th ave. was picturesque! Also, many shops and resturants are within walking distance.

The hotels offers amazing suites, with separate kitchens, living and bedrooms. Plenty of space, yet comfortable ammenities. The beds and pillows were the most comfortable we have ever experienced! The old world design accents of the hotel make the experience that much more memorable.

The entire staff from the front desk to the elevator attendent were always smiling and ready to help with anything their guests need. The definately put their customers needs first. We cant wait to visit this hotel again!

Room Tip: Inside suites are very quiet and comfortable.

Our family stayed in five rooms at the Sherry Netherland this weekend. It's a beautiful old hotel, with excellent service and great attention to detail (eg. the elevator operator remembers on what floor we were staying on the first day). The rooms are spacious for NYC, and were quiet and clean. We have stayed in the Pierre, Waldorf, Essex house, etc and this hotel stands above the rest with their friendly and professional service. Loved it!

I've stayed in a lot of hotels in New York, this was one of the best. Doorman, elevator (lift) attendant and everyone seemed to remember my name which was probably the most impressive thing. A fridge with several complimentary drinks refreshed every day, free wifi (sadly unusual these days).

The location was perfect, right next to the Apple store on the south east corner or Central Park, business or pleasure a great find.

Room Tip: The higher the better (usually the rule in New York)

We chose this hotel because we wanted to stay in a child friendly location in New York, and to be frank, you pay a little more but you get much more for your money. I don't want to spoil the surprise for you by going into detail about all the niceties that this hotel offers, but I can promise you an endless row of moments when you will exert an "Oooh!" and be moved by the care that the hotel demonstrates time and time again. If you are considering NOT to dine for breakfast at the Cipriani restaurant, I have to tell you that you only pay $10 more there for a decent breakfast than in a greasy spoon cafe, but you get more for your money. We tried a few different options, and would not bother looking around for alternatives, unless you just want to grab a sandwich.
The Sherry Netherland is the first ever service establishment I have encountered where you actually feel that the hospitality philosophy has actually filtered its way to all levels of employees. There is not one person who acts as if they haven't embraced the friendly attitude the Sherry is seeking to emit. There is only one minor complaint, and that is that the bed is slightly on the hard side for me. But this is a minor detail, so unless you are very sensitive to this, choose the Sherry. You will get more than a hotel stay, You will truly beleive this is your second home.
