The Scoop: Situated in the heart of New York’s dynamic Theater District, this hotel was designed by architect Stanford White, also the creator of the original Madison Square Garden and the Washington Square Park Arch. Since opening in 1905, the hotel has been meticulously restored to reflect the sleek, yet posh Art Deco period. Guestrooms have luxurious accents such as suede-covered walls with leather accents.
Amenities: Private terraces, among them, one on the rooftop, can be found in some suites, along with a gas fireplace. Butler service is complimentary.
Don’t Miss: Pamper yourself with a Stress Melter Ritual—a body scrub, wrap and massage—at the on-premises Red Door Spa. Foodies should indulge at the hotel’s restaurant, The Lamb, run by celebrity chef Geoffrey Zakarian. For drinks with a view, try The Lamb’s Club Bar, which has floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking vibrant 44th Street.
