Soho Grand Hotel, New York, USA
This was Downtown Manhattan's first luxury boutique hotel and remains ever-popular with both trendsetters and celebrities alike. Brandishing an industrial-chic vibe, it mixes materials like hardwood, concrete and metal with soft, colourful fabrics. There's a diverse set of eateries and drinking establishments, including late-night club with live music. It's not the sort of place to have a spa or pool, although there's a 24-hour fitness centre and other amenities include free use of bikes and an especially knowledgeable concierge service. Guest rooms enjoy city views and its great location is at the centre of a buzzing nightlife scene, with a host of subway lines nearby to whisk you further afield.
Your expert reviewer
It's great that the hotel is within four blocks walk of seven different subway lines.
The hotel is on the edge of SoHo and Tribeca, close to boutiques, bars and clubs.
By plane: flights to New York take 6 hours 50 mins from London and Edinburgh, and 7 hours 10 mins from Manchester. The hotel is one hour's taxi ride from JFK airport. Private parking from $65 per day. skyscanner.net

Business people, models, musicians and other creatives and especially style-conscious younger couples love this hotel. We really like the grand but homely lobby bar area with its mishmash of sofas in leather or coloured fabrics.

You'll get complimentary access to the Roxy Cinema and first-run independent films, rare archival prints and 35mm cult classics, at nearby sister property The Roxy Hotel.
