Kosher hotels in New York - recommended hotels for kosher and Shabbat observant in New York, close to kosher restaurants and synagogues
Those looking for a kosher hotel in New York will find it mostly in Brooklyn. The Brooklyn borough is home to New York’s Jewish community, which is one of the largest in the world.
Central New York also has an active Jewish community, synagogues, kosher restaurants and Chabad houses. You can find hotels in Manhattan that not kosher, but definitely suitable for Shabbat and kosher observers in terms of proximity to kosher restaurants and synagogues.
Manhattan has countless accommodation options, but there is no kosher hotel in New York in the Manhattan area. Because of this, I recommend staying for the week in Manhattan – close to all the attractions. And on Shabbat stay at a kosher hotel in Brooklyn, which is more suitable for Shabbat observants. Brooklyn offers a huge variety of food ready for Shabbat, synagogues and also strictly kosher hotels.
For those who prefer to stay in the center of New York on Shabbat, I suggest staying in one of the hotels recommended below, which are suitable for Shabbat observant and are close to synagogues or Chabad of Midtown Manhattan.
