We’re all familiar with the mantra of the Instagram era ‘pictures or it didn't happen,’ and in today’s world, the pictures must be perfectly curated postcards capturing that one special moment. 

New York is one of those places where every corner is a photo-op, every meal is art on a plate and every sunset is like you're in a movie. The most savvy social media users know that the venue you’re staying at has to be picture perfect, well, our list of New York City's luxury holidays is front cover-worthy. 

So, for your next visit to the ‘concrete jungle where dreams are made,’ you can be sure there’ll be sights and bright lights inspiring you all around. Let’s get ready for your insta-worthy New York luxury holiday.

Make Memories at The Mark Hotel

Super trendy and every Instagrammer’s dream, The Mark Hotel is a venue worthy of being photographed from every angle. Based on the Upper East Side (prime Gossip Girl territory), you’ll have the backdrop to pose in that perfect Serena Van Der Woodsen boho outfit or Blair Waldorf’s preppy couture ensemble.

It’ll be #gymgoals galore at the fitness centre. Display that natural glow for all your followers to admire when you pose for the perfect gym selfie, or show off a beautiful new bouncy blow courtesy of legendary hairstylist Frédéric Fekkai, who has a residency in the Mark’s luxury hair salon. No New York trip would be complete without the perfect #foodporn pic, and the Michelin-starred Mark Restaurant by Jean-Georges Vongerichten has a myriad of photogenic plates, destined for that main grid. 

The stylish rooms, suites, and a separate living penthouse apartment, boast dreamy interior decorations that will not only make you feel at home, but will look great on your stories. The Madison King Suite has an incredible view of Madison Avenue where you can people-watch or snap some great street-style shots. 

One of the best spots in the entire property is The Mark Penthouse, which has five bedrooms, six bathrooms, as well as a living and dining room. It even has a library where you can take some super classy #booksmart selfies. The jewel in the crown has got to be the roof terrace though, boasting stunning views of the city where you can capture sunsets, sunrises, and starlit vistas during your stay.

The Four Seasons is Seasonally Stylish

Get some timeless shots for your timeline at The Four Seasons hotel. A staple of the Big Apple, this glamorous getaway spot will look classy and elegant in all your holiday pictures.

Located on Billionaire’s Row, on the east end of Central Park, you’ll have plenty of photogenic opportunities inside these luxury walls (and outside of them too), where you’ll be surrounded by modern skyscrapers juxtaposed by the calming nature of the park.
If you like to surround yourself with the epitome of luxury, then you must book a stay in what’s been called one of the most expensive hotel suites in the United States of America. Occupying the whole of the 52nd floor, it treats its guests to the most breathtaking panoramic view of New York. You can pose up a storm on any of the four balconies or be the epitome of #relaxationgoals as you soak in the spacious tub of the master bathroom. However, the ultimate holiday content will be a well-documented ride in the chauffeured Rolls-Royce, provided by the hotel. Now that’s what we call influential.

Snap and Chat at The Mandarin Oriental

Located on the top of the Time Warner Center of Columbus Circle, even the lobby will be a place to be papped as it’s located on the 33rd floor with great vistas of Manhattan. With Central Park on one side and sprawling skyscrapers on the other, you can gaze down at the tiny yellow taxis from the luxurious surroundings of the Mandarin Oriental hotel. 

The East meets West fusion decor is prevalent in every room, exuding camera-ready perfection. While the Presidential Suite is basically 2,640 square feet of unadulterated luxury that will undoubtedly garner hundreds of likes. Sumptuous silks, mesmerising marbles and incandescent crystals will pop in every picture, and the soaking tub has a city view that is sure to go viral.

Channel Socialite Style at The St. Regis

The classically elegant St. Regis Hotel provides a beautiful and dramatic setting taking you back to the Gilded Age of New York. John Jacob Astor IV, who was one of the doomed passengers on the Titanic, founded this landmark hotel for his fabulous wife, Madeleine. She and her socialite friends would frequent the lavish venue and spend their time surrounded by the stylish interiors and opulent decor. If mobile phones were around back then, you know they’d be taking pictures of their dishes while dining at Astor Court. The chandeliers are better than any ring light, and the stunning high ceilings will provide a regal backdrop to show off the outfit of the day.

The King Cole Bar was featured in iconic movies such as The Devil Wears Prada and The First Wives’ Club, and there’s nothing better than recreating your favourite movie scenes in their original settings. You could also try their signature Bloody Mary which was first invented there all the way back in 1934. Just think how great the green celery will pop against the red of the tomato juice #cocktailhour. 

The rooms themselves are worthy of an Instagram photoshoot, especially the 1,700 square-foot Imperial Suite. Whether you’re posing against the dramatic red doors, admiring the luxury marble interior, or reclining on the chinoiserie-inspired four-poster bed, the lavish interiors are sure to look sensational. May we suggest a sparkle filter boomerang of the crystal chandelier, or perhaps a carefully curated bubble bath shoot in the deep soaking tub?
