    Location
    The Surrey is situated in one of Manhattan’s most exclusive neighborhoods, the Upper East Side, with direct access to Madison Avenue’s upscale boutiques & restaurants, Museum Mile, iconic landmarks and Central Park.

    The Surrey is 20 minutes from LaGuardia Airport (LGA), 40 minutes from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and 60 minutes from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR).

    Hotel Overview
    Built pre-war in Beaux-Arts architectural design, The Surrey has concluded a $60 + million recreation by renowned architectural and interior designer Lauren Rottet, FAIA, IIDA. The hotel is reflective of its Upper East Side neighborhood and evokes the ambiance of a residential townhouse that has evolved over time with eclectic pieces that seem to have been acquired through worldly travels.

    The Surrey showcases coffered ceilings, limestone walls and moldings, and marble archways and floors in the lobby. Adding an unexpected twist, the hotel is accented with eclectic elements such as the front desk made of hand-tooled leather, and an antique Oriental carpet expressed in mosaic tiles. Rottet’s use of a refined palette of textures and hues of cream, silver, gray, light tobacco and black provides a timeless stage for the vibrancy each guest brings to the hotel.

    Steps away from the city’s finest cultural institutions, The Surrey offers its own intimate collection of modern art, including two photographs, You Are My Own and But The Myth Of Love, by American conceptual artist, Jenny Holzer. In a hidden niche between the lobby and the bar is an interactive video piece by South African artist, William Kentridge. London-based artists, Jimmie Karlsson and Martin Nihlman, best known as Jimmie Martin, were commissioned by Rottet Studio to custom design playful residential furnishings such as an ornate armoire and a customized chaise lounge. Guests are also greeted by a tapestry of model, designer, musician and fashion icon Kate Moss, by portrait artist Chuck Close, upon entering the lobby.

    Salons & Suites
    Ranging from 350 to 2,127 square feet, The Surrey features 189 salons, including 34 suites, a Penthouse and a Presidential suite.

    The 2,127-square-foot Presidential suite is ideal for Manhattan entertaining with a private terrace, baby grand piano, formal dining room, two bedroom option, kitchen, living room, full bar and three bathrooms. Residential-inspired details were added to reflect true Upper East Side living, including an Apple Macbook, fireplace, antique desk, walk-in closets, sauna, classic claw foot tub and separate shower. In a private seating area overlooking Central Park is an antique chaise lounge whimsically painted by Jimmie Martin with the recipe for “The Perfect Manhattan” cocktail. Throughout the suite, a covetable collection of modern artwork dresses the walls by artists such as Donald Sultan, Richard Serra, Cecily Brown, Amy Sims, Mel Bochner and Imogen Cunningham.

    Located on the 17th floor, the modern, loft-like Penthouse at 1,141 square feet is complete with 10-foot ceilings, a fireplace, formal living and dining rooms, a retractable projection screen, oversized bedroom and a bathroom with a sleek soaking tub and rain shower. An eclectic assortment of artwork by Ann Hamilton, Jonathan Borofsky, Nathalia Edenmont, Mel Bochner and Donald Baechler add a touch of humor and inspiration to the space. Affording direct access to The Surrey’s English Roof Garden, a private wraparound terrace features twin couches and a dining table that seats up to nine.

    At the heart of all salons and suites is the hand-crafted DUX bed by Duxiana (engineered for perfect support), dressed in Sferra bedding. In addition, Beaux-Arts/Art Deco custom-designed furnishings such as hand-painted armoires, walnut cabinets and nightstands with burl wood insets, desks with built-in vanity and desktop electrical outlets for convenient access complete the atmosphere.

    Artwork in the salons and suites include prints of 1700s etchings Lauren Rottet found while traveling in Milan as well as more modern black & white photos of New York scenes. Some salons offer window seating overlooking Madison and 76th Street with cushions embroidered in quotes, including: “Across these rooftops, stories are told;” “Through these windows lies the soul of the city;” and “Only here among the crowds can you find rest.”

    Style and sophistication meet in modern technology, with LCDs and Denon iPod docking stations in every salon and suite. Guests can view their photos and music on the TV screen as well as play their personal music selection. Bedside panels control the lighting in the room, which ranges from nightlight mode to reading to watching TV.
    All bathrooms have exclusive finishes such as white Italian marble throughout, Waterworks fixtures and luxurious Pratesi cotton terry robes and signature bath amenities by Mitchell and Peach. Deluxe suites are realized with double sinks and soaking tubs.

    Dining at Café Boulud
    The Surrey is the original home of Daniel Boulud’s first New York City restaurant, Daniel. In 1998, the space was relaunched as Café Boulud with a menu guided by the chef’s contemporary approach to classic French cuisine and his flair for seasonal delicacies and worldly flavors.

    Helmed by Executive Chef Gavin Kaysen, the menu reflects Daniel Boulud’s four muses: La Tradition (French tradition), La Saison (seasonal cooking), Le Potager (the vegetable garden) and Le Voyage (culinary travels). The dining room transports guests to a cosmopolitan Parisian rendezvous, and is both a destination and a neighborhood gem for casually elegant dining, seasonal wine tasting dinners and a delectable Sunday Brunch. Guests of the hotel will enjoy 24-hour, insalon dining by Café Boulud.

    Daniel Boulud presents his newest venture, Bar Pleiades, located on the lobby-level of The Surrey. Named in homage of a beloved French restaurant frequented by the art world’s elite in the 1970s and 80s, Bar Pleiades serves signature cocktails.

    For the design of 1,200-square-foot Bar Pleiades, Lauren Rottet drew inspiration from Coco Chanel as well as a 1930s Art Deco bar cart. The bar is framed by a black lacquered wood box with white lacquer inlay and references a Chanel makeup compact. French doors and mirrors outline the lounge, where an L-shaped banquette invites seclusion in intimate spaces surrounded by beige quilted, Chanel handbag-inspired walls and seating covered in white sharks’ skin. Chandeliers light the lounge area while a sumptuous carpet rests beneath patron’s feet revealing a poem by Dean Blehert entitled Central Park, 1974.

    Private Dining
    For more intimate gatherings, the private dining rooms at Café Boulud are elegant settings for celebrations of your own making. Each of the two dining rooms seats 18 and can be combined to accommodate 40 guests. Along with a pre-function space there is over 900 square feet. Private Dining may be booked directly through Café Boulud.

    Roof Garden
    Perched peacefully on the 17th floor overlooking the Upper East Side and Central Park, the 2,200- square-foot Roof Garden at The Surrey is intended to feel hidden with manicured boxwoods and ivy trailing over wrought iron tables and chairs. Lounge seating and sofas are set at the corners of the terrace like individual garden rooms, seating up to 40 patrons. Accessible only to hotel guests and select members of the neighborhood, the Roof Garden is a setting for relaxing, a romantic evening or for business entertaining and features butler service for beverages and light meals.

    Cornelia Spa at The Surrey
    Cornelia Spa at The Surrey offers discreet and tailored services on the 2nd floor of The Surrey. The Cornelia brand delivers a thoughtful spa experience enhanced by signature elements including all natural botanical tastings to complement a carefully curated treatment menu. Intimacy and classic sophistication, cornerstones of Cornelia and The Surrey, are perfectly paired to create a timeless and stylish culture exclusively considered for our guests.

    Three treatment rooms and two spa suites act as private, exclusive sanctuaries equipped with a personal dressing armoire, vanity, shower and robes, so guests may rejuvenate in complete privacy. The spa suites are ideal for couples, one complete with an infinity soaking tub. A separate manicure/pedicure room is tucked away and allows for couples or friends to converse without being overheard. While services may be chosen a la carte from the spa menu, guests are encouraged to meet with a personal therapist or spa expert to assess their wellness and health needs, and the therapists will design targeted treatments for each individual. Private yoga and mat Pilates are also available.

    The Fitness Center
    Located on the second floor, the fitness center is open to guests with room key access, 24-hours a day. The center features top-of-the-line cardio equipment with individual video screens and headsets. Professional personal trainers are also available to create individualized, New York-centric experiences such as rock climbing and runs in Central Park as well as sunrise yoga on the Roof Garden.

    PAMPERED PUPS “ROLL OVER” FOR THE SURREY’S POSH PETS PROGRAM

    New York, New York (August 2013) – Tails are wagging by in-the-know pups as The Surrey hotel announces its support of the Humane Society of New York, the latest addition to its beloved Posh Pets program. Dedicated to being a luxury destination for humans and their pet travel companions alike as well as giving back to animals that are less fortunate, The Surrey will donate up to $10,000 per year to the Humane Society of New York.

    Through The Surrey’s Patrons Club - an exclusive membership-based program designed as an extension of the hotel’s truly personalized service - the hotel is donating 50 percent of all membership fees to the Humane Society of New York as its preferred charity for the program. The Humane Society plays an important role in the city by caring for hundreds of animals with diverse needs and has been recognized for its innovative approach to animal care. Today, the Humane Society’s hospital and adoption center help more than 36,000 dogs and cats annually.

    The Surrey’s Posh Pet program is designed to ensure its four-legged guests experience a level of luxury not typically extended to them while traveling. Upon arrival, all dogs receive a welcome treat from Bocce’s Bakery, New York’s gourmet biscuit company. Human companions may select from additional amenities, including: a plush Surrey monogrammed dog bed and an in-room biscuit menu designed by Bocce’s Bakery with Truffle Mac & Cheese, Beef Bourguignon and Chicken Cordon Bleu bites. Bespoke Posh Pet concierge services are also available offering a list of local dog parks and insider tips on the best pet-friendly dining spots the city has to offer.
