I just love this hotel

Breezy Point, New York

This hotel is an absolute gem. 2nd time staying here and really every time it just gets better. Walk in to check in I’m first handed a bottle of Fiji water. This may not seem like a big thing but when people are traveling long periods of time and also sweating in the sweltering heat it was a great gesture to me. the hotel is absolutely immaculate and clean the rooms smell amazing. The bed is definelty the the most comfortable I have ever slept in. I know this because my sciatica is always better the next morning. It’s also a better value then the mark being cheaper @ the same 5 star rating and in within a block from the mark if you want to stop by. The surrey is same if not better in my opinion. Happy hoteling. Just had to say my piece. Happy hoteling

Truly wonderful experience

Cannot say enough good things about this hotel and the warm, welcoming, professional staff who take such good care of their guests. From the moment we walked in and Vanessa checked us in until Pablo closed the door on our car, we were made to feel special. Whether bringing us food, a fun little espresso machine, or an extra blanket for lounging, Jose, Theron, and Geo cheerfully catered to our every need. Not only is the hotel scrupulously clean, it is beautiful and comfortable too. The timeless decor creates a comfortable, homey feeling; not the mass produced everything-the-same feel of some hotels. The shower was amazing! The large shower head provided plenty of hot water at a pressure that felt wonderful on weary shoulders. The sheets and comforter were crisp and fluffy and added to the luxurious other-world mattress. Our spa treatments were wonderful and just what we needed to relax after two days of NYC fun. (The Yankees won!) I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. I mentioned him earlier, but a special shout out goes to Pablo who made us feel more like family than simply guests. Thank you to all the people at The Surrey for sharing your hotel with us for an unforgettable weekend.
