New York City's Sexiest New Hotels

Indulging in Manhattan's latest round of hotel excess doesn't necessarily require a room key

New York City’s hotel scene is a mirror image of the city itself – ever innovating, always surprising, and offering a piece of the cake for everyone. The most recent hotel boom has brought fashionista “it” spots, reinvented business retreats, head-turning architectural stunners, and an edgy hotel-as-art-gallery. From Midtown to the High Line to the downtown financial district, these contenders offer a brave new world of options for Manhattan-bound travelers (we’ll save Brooklyn’s burgeoning hotel scene for another story), whether you want to schmooze with celebs, hang with the hipster crowd, or mingle with power brokers. And if you can’t commit to bedding down at one of these hotspots, don’t fret – each one has a dramatic rooftop space (like the one at the Hotel Americano, pictured above) for everyone to enjoy. See more of these sleek digs in our Hot New York City Hotels slideshow.
