With NYFW just around the bend, the glitterati are flocking to the city in droves. But with hundreds of hotels to choose from (and the ever-expanding Airbnb lists) it can be difficult to figure out where to stay. Luckily for you, V has rounded up the best hotels across the city (and even one in Brooklyn!) to suit whatever your fancy is this Fashion Week. Read on for our top 5 picks.

Uptown Glamour: The Surrey

One of New York City's most glamorous stays is boutique hotel The Surrey, an Upper East Side (and Central Park-adjacent) spot where a large print of Kate Moss by the infamous Chuck Close greets your arrival in the lobby. The hotel features a $30 million art collection, including two photographs by Jenny Holzer, making the luxury stay an artistic delight. The rooms themselves match the rest of the hotel: minimalist, elegant, and chic.

Regal Old-World New York: Gramercy Park Hotel

On one of the most exclusive and coveted blocks (with a park you can only access with a key!) lies the darkly regal Gramercy Park Hotel, filled with artist Julian Schnabel's furnishings, giving it an eccentric—rather than dated—vibe. The hotel also includes a selection of Warhol prints dotted across its walls, adding to the grandiose style. And yes—access to the park comes with your stay.

Midtown Decadence: The Chatwal

If you want to catch something on Broadway between fashion shows, The Chatwal is perfectly situated for both an opulent stay while being close to the action. The darkly rich hotel is a refreshingly modern experience between the neon lights of Times Square, a perfect retreat after a day whizzing around the city from show to show.

Soho Retreat: 11 Howard

For more of a trendy, downtown vibe, look no further than 11 Howard. The Scandinavian-minimalist inspired hotel also features a darkly lush lobby and interior, with blue and grey velvet couches sitting underneath an Alexander Calder mobile. The hotel prides itself on "Conscious Hospitality," with many charitable collaborations from The Global Poverty Project to FEED & Lauren Bush, so you can feel good about where your money is going.

Brooklyn Boutique: The William Vale

The newly opened whimsical Brooklyn hotel, The William Vale, is a luxe stay in trendy Williamsburg. Summer may be on its last legs, but with warm weather reports for the rest of the week, take advantage of the Vale Pool—one of the largest in New York. Plus, though you may not be directly in the city, you get the ultimate benefit of crossing the water: breathtaking views of Manhattan's skyline.
