A neighborhood of old-money royalty, wealthy industrialists and family dynasties, the Upper East Side is certainly a swanky spot to lay your head. The Franklin hotel lets visitors inject themselves into this posh neighborhood, to enjoy the museums, shops and restaurants of the moneyed, even if only for a night.
Tucked on a quiet side street, the intimate hotel has fewer than 50 rooms. Each one has a pillow-top mattress, Egyptian cotton linens and bath products from upscale beauty companies. All guests wake to a daily breakfast buffet of fresh pastries and juices. Each evening, the hotel pours complimentary glasses of wine alongside gourmet wedges of cheese from the fancy Artisanal Cheese company.
About one block west is Park Avenue, a historic thoroughfare lined with gorgeous, expensive apartment buildings -- Jacqueline Kennedy grew up here and Brooke Astor lived nearby. About two blocks west is Madison Avenue, where the world’s most upscale fashion companies set up a shop. About three blocks west is Fifth Avenue, home to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Guggenheim Museum and seven other significant cultural institutions. Central Park is just across Fifth Avenue.
