Nestled among patches of skyscrapers in midtown, The London hotel boasts 54 stories of sheer luxury. Many of the chic white-and-gray suites – larger than most Manhattan apartments – include their own living rooms (with a view), leather rocking chair and all. To chow down, you can visit Gordon Ramsay’s titular restaurant or the more relaxed London Bar, where chandeliers are still plentiful.

2. Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park

Now, this isn’t just any Ritz-Carlton: This Ritz was the first hotel to open near the World Trade Center after the attacks in 2001, thereby garnering it much attention and affection from locals. Situated in Battery Park, its rooms face the Hudson River and feature a telescope, offering spectacular views of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

3. The Carlyle, Rosewood

Dubbed as a “true New York landmark” for sophisticated travelers, the Carlyle is a historic structure finds itself a block from Central Park and just a couple more from the Frick Collection museum. With porcelain lamps and whirlpool tubs, the hotel’s rooms feel more like lavish residences, while its Bemelmans Bar showcases a ceiling decorated in 24-karat gold leaf.

4. The Mercer Hotel

Built in 1890 for mogul John Jacob Astor, SoHo’s Mercer stands as a structure of Romanesque revival and was converted into a hotel in 1998 by André Balazs. Designed by Christian Liagre, the rooms boast modernly stylish rooms filled with high ceilings, large windows, and massive bathrooms. Some rooms even have a working fireplace—not bad for New York City, huh?

5. The NoMad Hotel

The hotel offers acclaimed dining at its in-house restaurants, Atrium and The Parlour, and even better cocktails at its two opulent bars.
