9 Hotels Where Celebrities Stay to Get Ready for the Met Gala

Whether you know it as the Oscars of fashion or the biggest party of the year, the Met Gala is, as my colleague Laird Borrelli-Persson has previously written, the “hottest ticket in town.” This year, the starry event is back on the first Monday in May, and celebrities are beginning to turn towards New York City for the evening of mesmerizing fashion.

If you’re anything like us, you’re probably champing at the bit, waiting impatiently for the exhibit, “In America: An Anthology of Fashion” to open on May 7 so that you can make your way to the museum to feast your eyes on statement-making pieces by designers both old and new, such as Oscar de la Renta and Eli Russell Linnetz. Or, perhaps you’ll happen to be in town the weekend leading up to the fête, hoping to catch a glimpse of the star-studded red carpet—where there’s always inevitably some sort of surprise—before the fundraising event begins that evening. For such an endeavor, it only seems apropos to stay where luminaries have made their way in and out. Below, some of our favorite hotels with an impressive client list.

Since 2010, the Standard’s lounge on the 18th floor has been the after-party spot. The Top of the Standard instantly commands your attention with the bar’s gilded centerpiece, reminiscent of a trumpet flute, and its floor-to-ceiling windows that provide incredible panoramic views of New York City and the Hudson River. (Plus, remember when Madonna made this hotel the set for her electrifyingly OTT “Bitch I’m Madonna” music video?) After a massive dance party, imagine being able to conveniently take the elevator down a few floors to your room, waking up to the same vista you partied away with.
