Expert Reviews
DK Eyewitness
Rooms may be tiny at this modern hotel, but they are well appointed with romantic canopied beds, flatscreen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi, and the like.
The best luxury boutique hotel north of 57th Street, the Franklin, in a nine-story town house, is a gem nestled in a decidedly residential neighborhood.
Under the direction of Willow Hotels, this 1931 gem was made over by Annette Jaffe, a residential designer whose goal was to create a homey un-hotel-like atmosphere.
