Our take on The Franklin Hotel

One of New York City's top boutique hotels on the Upper East Side, The Franklin is an inexpensive and intimate property that's great for those looking for a place to stay with some character. It opened its doors in the 1930s and still possesses much of its Art Deco charms, making it an ideal getaway for couples, who make up a large majority of the hotel's guests. With just 50 guest rooms and a complimentary buffet of baked goods and fresh fruits each morning, The Franklin feels a lot like an intimate bed and breakfast. Every afternoon, a gourmet cheese monger hosts a free wine and cheese reception, but if you'd prefer a beverage with a little bit more of a pick-me-up, there's a massive espresso machine in the breakfast room that's at your disposal around the clock. Accommodations may not be the most spacious in the city, but that's easily overlooked thanks to Bulgari toiletries, free in-room Wi-Fi and a design that blends the vintage and modern.

Insider Tips on the Best Rooms at this Hotel

Quiet Rooms

To get away from some of the street noise, request the highest floor possible at check-in, and the front desk will do its best to accommodate your request.

Rooms with a View

You'll find the best street views from the Executive King rooms, because they're located on the higher floors and face 87th St.

Oversized Rooms

If you're looking for a less expensive option, the Superior Queen rooms are not too much smaller than the Deluxe Queens.
