"A perfect blend of old-fashioned elegance and service," this Beaux Arts mainstay off Fifth Avenue has guest rooms in blues and greens or shades of gold and yellow. The accommodations' "quite posh decor" includes silk wall coverings, bathrooms with Italian marble, European soaking tubs, and gold fixtures. Astor Court's international menu lists sheep's milk ricotta ravioli with fava beans. Staff are "helpful and friendly."
