781 Quinta 5ta Avenida Nueva York Sherry Netherland Hotel

The Sherry Netherland Hotel is a 38-story apartment hotel located on the corner of East 59th Street & 5th Avenue (across from the entrance to Central Park). The building is 570 feet high, and was noted as the tallest apartment-hotel in New York City when it opened. The building houses 165 apartments that were converted to co-ops in 1954. There are only 54 hotel rooms and suites, but in the tower above the 24th floor there are single apartments to a floor. The French Gothic/French Renaissance Chateauesque roofline with gargoyles disguises the water tower.


With this hotel opening in 1927, the Sherry Netherland is clearly for those wanting to immerse themselves into Historic New York – from authentic Vanderbilt mansion friezes to hand-loomed French carpets, fro marble mosaic floors to custom-made crystal chandeliers.


Current amenities include a barbershop, beauty salon and fitness center; as well as services like an on-site notary public. The steep room rates are tempered by a slew of complimentary extras like in-room water and soda and a Belgian chocolate welcome gift.
