Two NYC Hotels Are Members of Small Luxury Hotels of the World

Business travelers and tourists alike should be clued into a great club called “Small Luxury Hotels of the World.” This club helps travelers find that perfect place to stay which is not overly large, but gives the kind of exclusive service of the best hotels in the world. Small Luxury Hotels of the World has over five hundred member hotels splashed all across the face of the earth, ready to serve their customers with exquisite care and unsurpassed elegance.

Travelers to New York will find two wonderful hotels which are proud members of Small Luxury Hotels; The Iroquois New York and The Inn at Irving Place.

The Iroquois is one of four New York hotels run under the Triumph Hotels brand, known for their high level of service and customer satisfaction. Shimmie Horn, scion of a family of hoteliers, runs the enterprise, and his experience and knowledge guarantees that Triumph Hotels, and especially the Iroquois, offer the kind of personalized service and profound emphasis on comfort which should be expected and received at a luxury hotel. Shimmie Horn takes special pride in The Iroquois. Its status as a member or Small Luxury Hotels of the World means he has taken customer service to the next level at the Iroquois.

The Inn at Irving Place, the only other New York hotel flying under the banner of Luxury Hotels of the World, is a unique combination of old world charm and state-of-the-art elegance. The Inn is composed of two renovated classic New York townhouses constructed in 1834. Its location in New York’s historic Gramercy Park area gives the Inn a classic, authentic charm almost impossible to match in today’s world of mass-produced, high-tech luxury. At the Inn guests are treated like family, with their every need and whim addressed.

Whether visitors to New York stay at the Inn or at Shimmie Horn’s Iroquois, they can rest assured that luxury and style is not compromised, and their comfort comes first. This is a promise fulfilled by all hotels which belong to Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
