Gramercy and Murray Hill, New York City, New York
The 184-room, ultra-hip Gramercy Park Hotel currently sets the bar for New York cool -- hence the celebrities in the lounge and the paparazzi on the sidewalk. Loft rooms, the standard rooms at this luxe downtown boutique, are huge (370 to 440 square feet) and have a bold design that blends old-world elegance with a Boho chic that's heavy on velvet. In addition, this hotel offers a gorgeous gym and a young, attentive staff.
