Fully renovated in 2002, the Melrose has a charming history dating back to 1921, when it first opened as the Barbizon, a women’s residential building for ambitious (and later famous) gals about town like Grace Kelly, Liza Minnelli and Candice Bergen. The seasoned hotel boasts a lobby rich with marble and ornate mirrors, while the sounds of soft jazz and conversation emanate from its English club-style Library Bar. Guest rooms, which face either the street or the courtyard, feature inviting beds with down comforters and wrought-iron headboards and oak armoires with pull-out desks. (Separate, larger glass desks are also available in some suites). Up-to-date amenities include wireless high-speed Internet access, data ports and CD players. The hotel houses, and provides discount passes for, the Equinox Fitness Club and Spa, complete with an 18-meter lap pool where big-screen wannabes can lounge and hope to get noticed, Grace Kelly-style.


Pros: Comfortable, refined, and close to museums, shopping, and the Equinox spa.

Cons: Execs may prefer having a more substantial desk.

Claim To Fame: Grace Kelly, Liza Minnelli, and Candice Bergen all once resided here.
