With elegant rooms in a luxurious house on a brownstone-lined street, the Athénée feels like an intimate, boutique hotel, despite holding 140 keys and being the talk of New York high society. The decor stays true to the property’s Beaux-Arts stylings and its location is a dream for culture-vultures. We enjoyed the hotel’s stately Arabelle restaurant.
