Check You Out
Click to book Check You Out now: from £15.31 per night With its ornate old buildings, laidback atmosphere, and endless riverside strolling spots, it's easy to see why people have been moving to this area since the eighteenth century. And while Murray Hill has retained its charm over the years, the accommodation options have thankfully evolved since then. Among the traditional townhouses, you'll now find swanky high-rises like this one, which offers comfort, convenience, and a totally indulgent swimming pool. We can just picture tucking into a bagel on the private balcony or relaxing with a magazine in the sumptuous seating area. The plush sofa gives us Russian Blue cat vibes and you can totally pretend you're living the penthouse dream from the sunny rooftop terrace with its views of the NYC skyline. Back in your pad, woven rugs, unique checkerboard flooring and a sunshine yellow throw, transform those all white rooms into an inviting home. End the day with a lovingly cooked meal and a drink as the sun sets on another fabulous day in New York. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 2 Bathrooms
The Naked City
Click to book The Naked City now: from £292 per night Right in the pulsing heart of this most vibrant of cities, this modern and comfortable apartment is the perfect base. Midtown East is a central Manhattan neighbourhood with many iconic attractions just feet from your door: the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings, the Rockefeller Center and the Grand Central Market. But you’re also next to the East River and the boutiques and nightlife of this retail and commercial hub. Inside, it's a studio space that's been thoughtfully put together as a home away from home. With a cool, contemporary look and stylish furniture, it's small but perfectly formed – with everything from modern art on the walls to a practical kitchen area and a dining space for two. Elsewhere in the building, take a drink up to enjoy on the rooftop terrace, and work out in the on-site fitness room. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
Click to book Belle Vue now: from £329 per night If you’ve ever wondered how to get privacy in New York City, we’ve found the answer for you – fifty-two floors off the ground! And that’s exactly what you’ll get at Belle Vue. With floor-to-ceiling windows and sweeping city views, this glossy home matches its slick cityscape. While the surrounding skyscrapers make for incredible impressions, the downside is that this area is mainly commercial and therefore not the most vibrant neighbourhood. If you’re okay with that, however, you’ll love that the building grants guests access to the private gym and pool. Sleeps up to 4 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
Click to book Pink Orchid now: from £350 per night The clean and bright interiors at Pink Orchid create a feeling of sophisticated ease reminiscent of any of your poshest holidays – with the tiny exception that this entire space is yours and guests can cook up a storm in the private kitchen. It's also got its own balcony from which you can enjoy the fabulous views and a larger shared terrace on the roof of the building. Located in Murray Hill, a dynamic yet manageable part of Midtown, you'll be close to the action but far enough to get a breather from the madness. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
Click to book Checkboard Dreams now: from £7.92 per night “Will you come see me when light turns to dark?” sang Alicia Keys in her song ‘Grammercy Park’, and with young people and families moving to this quiet neighbourhood all the time, you’ll be sure to find your days and evenings chock with lively new experiences here – but with the option to wind down, too. This large studio flat in Murray Hill is tastefully kitted out with all the modern essentials, including wifi and a dedicated workspace for the travelling businessperson, its clean, bright decor and wooden floor tiles bring a homely feel to the space. The bedroom is high-quality and comfortable, and set just off the living space to give you a taste of legendary New York studio living. For time out, you can choose between the in-building swimming pool, a state-of-the-art fitness centre and lounge, or take a coffee or food to the expansive roof terrace with its comfortable chairs and large tables and check out the great views of the city and surrounding area. Ten minutes from Central Park, close to the subway and immediately next door to the titular park of the song, this secluded flat is the ideal base for discovering New York by day or night. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
