Things to Do on the Upper East Side

Discover this Charming Neighborhood

Hotel Wales is located in the heart of the Upper East Side, New York City's most elegant neighborhood. The broad, stately avenues are filled with New York City attractions such as shops, museums and top-notch restaurants while the tree-lined side streets boast rows of multimillion-dollar mansions dating back to the late 1800s. With a number of things to do on the Upper East Side, your stay at our hotel is sure to provide a new adventure with each passing day.

From our location at Madison Avenue and 92nd Street, you can stop by Central Park, the Guggenheim Museum, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and the 92nd Street Y (home to The Tisch Center for the Arts) without even leaving the three-block radius around Hotel Wales. If you are traveling on business or for an extended period of time, Hunter College, Mount Sinai Medical Center and Parsons are all located nearby.
