Built in 1926 as a residence hotel, the original Surrey was home to many of New York’s most famous faces – JFK, Bette Davis, Claudette Colbert, and others who recognized the allure of exceptional, discreet service.
In re-creating The Surrey, we collaborated with acclaimed interior designer Lauren Rottet of Rottet Studio—to maintain the integrity of The Surrey’s history while modernizing New York’s most intimate address.
Rottet’s inspiration was a New York City townhouse passed down through the generations. The Surrey’s discreet service allows guests to retreat from the public—and keep a low profile in an otherwise high profile lifestyle. It’s a transcendent experience, where the high-energy Manhattan milieu meets cathartic uptown service and discretion. Privately New York.
