The buzz of New York City is exciting, busy, and always changing. It can also be overwhelming and exhausting if you aren’t used to a big city that never sleeps. So after a day of adventure in the Big Apple, it is nice to relax and unwind in the comforts of your hotel.

Top 5 New York City Hotels That Include A Butler

Chatwal Hotel

It is hard to beat the location of the Chatwal Hotel in New York City. This luxury 5-star art deco hotel is just a 5-minute walk from the Broadway theaters in the heart of Midtown Manhattan near Times Square, Bryant Park, and the Theater District. The hotel has a team of professional butlers who care for your every need. Butler service is available in every room.

The Chawal caters to every kind of guest. Dogs are welcome and will be just as pampered as their owners. They offer a special dog treat menu and even a member of staff who will curate a pet wardrobe for your furry friend. Families and children are looked after as well, and all guests have complimentary use of the hotel’s bicycles.

St. Regis

When John Jacob Astor founded the St. Regis New York over 100 years ago, he envisioned “the finest hotel in the world.” The 5-star uber-lux St. Regis has since become an icon in the city – in part for its incredibly central location on Fifth Avenue, but also for its unrivaled elegance.  

All St. Regis guests have access to a personal butler service at any hour of the day. Their butlers, who can be beckoned via email, unpack your luggage upon arrival, draw your shades, deliver a morning coffee, and press your clothes. They can also procure personalized gifts, curate books, and fulfill any other task, no matter how big or small.

The Plaza

Is there a more iconic New York City hotel than The Plaza? Built in 1907, this hotel has hosted countless world leaders and celebrities and has been the backdrop for films and high-society parties. The Plaza is next to Central Park and Fifth Avenue, near some of New York’s most famous shopping.

Given the hotel’s reputation for detail and service, it comes as no surprise that the hotel’s suites include a renowned white glove butler service. The Plaza’s butlers are known for being incredibly attentive and discrete. The Plaza’s suites also come with fresh flowers, 24-carat gold faucets, and signature Guerlain toiletries. Guests staying during the holiday season can even opt to have a 7-ft Christmas tree set up inside their room.

The Ritz-Carlton

Overlooking Central Park, The Ritz-Carlton is the perfect location for exploring the heart of Midtown Manhattan. Rockefeller Center and Radio City Music Hall are just a short walk away, as are some of the city’s top restaurants.

While the hotel’s rooms are all designed with incredible attention to detail, the suites at the Ritz are truly top-notch and come with personal butler service. Each suite has its own character with custom-made furniture and specially commissioned artwork. Select suites feature panoramic views of Central Park and come with in-room telescopes for city stargazing.

The Pierre

While The Pierre’s butler service is currently on pause, it will resume once additional staff is added. The Pierre is located directly across from the beautiful central park. It is known for having some of the best services and amenities of any hotel in the city.

Even though the butlers aren’t currently available, the hotel’s exceptional concierge service is available to make guests’ stays more personalized and convenient.
