Great place to stay in New York
Lovely staff and location, bathrooms great perhaps the rooms could use a little updating. All in all a great place to stay.

Fantastic hotel and staff
Absolutely outstanding. Despite a small hiccup on arrival, Narissa and team were amazing and couldn’t not have done more to make our trip any more enjoyable. Would recommend to anyone and definitely look forward to going back, which is the biggest compliment I can offer.. Thank you to all at The Surrey.

Great hotel, great rooms in superb location. The staff are always very friendly and helpful. The bar is definitely worth a visit too
Marie-Claire, gb1 night business trip
Very good 8.0
Warm welcome from Koko
The welcome from Koko was fabulous, he made us feel like long lost family even time we returned to the hotel. Rocky was also great, the suite was spacious and clean. However, Jose on reception 'welcomed ' us to the hotel without once taking his eyes off his computer and he never smiled once. Even though we arrived at 3.30 ( check in is at 3) our room wasn't ready and Jose told us to sit in the lobby and wait. If he had bothered to look up he would have seen that there was no room for us to sit so we went to the bar and had a free drink. But the rooms should be ready at 3, guests are tired and dont want to be kept waiting. Check your bills carefully, there were mistakes on ours at breakfast, rectified once pointed out. The management should stick Jose in a back office away from guests and never let Koko leave, he is your greatest asset.

If you love the UES you will love The Surrey
A great location for shopping and eating. Not great if your business is mostly on the West Side.

An experience to return to
Very nice hotel with very good and professional staff who go above and beyond to help make your stay a lovely experience. Very clean. The bed was extremely comfortable too. Nice bar with live Jazz to relax and unwind after a long day. Will return Very good and safe location with very high end shops all within walking distance
Ilidia, us1 night business trip
Poor 2.0
Look somewhere else if you can
The receptionists were snobs. But the doorman and greeters were friendly and helpful. Multiple emails regarding pet fees went unanswered. No complimentary coffee after 830 am. Usage fees are excessive. Especially since you only stayed one night and didn’t use anything but room. Not worth the price at all.
