An Upper East Side Icon Reborn Opening Spring 2024

Reimagining an iconic hotel

Built in 1926 as a residence hotel, the original Surrey was home to many of New York’s most eccentric celebrities. JFK, Bette Davis and Claudette Colbert are just a few famous faces that recognised the allure of exceptional and discreet service here. Now - building on storied past - the mission is to restore the hotel's glamour and sophistication, making it an icon of the future.

The 16-story building will boast 70 guest rooms, 30 suites and 14 residences, which draw inspiration from the hotel's illustrious history and surroundings. Four Signature suites will be inspired by the bridges of Central Park, with sublime comfort and spectacular elegance at its core. Expect intelligently-designed guest spaces filled with modern luxury, and constant culture at your fingertips.

Outside of Midtown, you will no doubt discover the real New York. That's why we're opening in Manhattan's elegant Upper East Side, a leafy home to the City's elite. Surrounded by high-end department stores, luxury boutiques and must-see museums, The Surrey, a Corinthia Hotel will play a starring role in the City's most desirable address. 

“Having a presence in the United States has always been a goal for Corinthia Hotels, especially in New York, a city that I consider one of the most vibrant and exciting places in the world” stated Simon Naudi, CEO of Corinthia Hotels. “We look forward to working closely with the Reuben Brothers to restore the hotel to its former glory just in time for its 100th anniversary and to play a role in helping rebuild Manhattan’s hospitality industry after this most difficult time.”
