Luxury and boutique hotels near Central Park

A world unto itself in the middle of Manhattan, the 843 acres of Central Park divide the Upper East Side from the Upper West Side of the city. You’ll hardly believe you’re surrounded by concrete jungle when you’re skating in a winter wonderland at Wollman Rink, picnicking in Sheep’s Meadow or gamboling on the Great Lawn. There’s something for everyone here: runners will love circling the track around the reservoir and families can ogle the polar bears (yes, really) in the zoo.

When to go

The park is beautiful in any season: there’s sledding in winter, boating in summer, crunchy leaves in autumn and cherry blossom in spring.
