Since it opened in 1926, the Surrey Hotel has accommodated elite visitors including Bette Davis, Claudette Colbert, and even President John F. Kennedy. 86 years and one $60 million makeover later, all of the rooms now feature iPod docking stations and minibars stocked with New York’s finest chocolates and liqueurs. If you’re not satisfied with the minibar, try the in-room cocktail program. Whether you’re the president or a resident, you can enjoy a meal (or room service!) from Café Boulud and a drink at Bar Pleiades, all while taking in the hotel’s amazing contemporary art collection, which features works from Richard Serra, Chuck Close, and more.
