The Franklin Hotel
Lonely Planet review
Fronted by a classic red-and-gold awning, this long-time spot channels a 1930s feel – starting with the vintage elevator. As with many old-timey New York spots, the rooms and bathrooms are tiny. But the decor is modern, the staff is congenial and the location couldn’t be more ideal – walking distance from Central Park and many museums.
In addition, wine and cheese is served in the evenings and a robust continental breakfast is laid out every morning. Rooms facing the back are quieter.
Our independent authors have visited The Franklin Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in New York City.
