Viceroy New York
This Roman and Williams-designed hotel is inspired by a classic noir vision of 1920s Manhattan. Guests might be the usual fresh-off-Fifth-Avenue tourists, but the suites feel like Bruce Wayne’s private pied-à-terre, complete with ribbed wood bars. Sink a cucumber margarita on the patio of The Roof and marvel at the Central Park views.
Insider tip: Watch an art-house film at the nearby Paris Theatre, which has been open since 1948. From $270; viceroyhotelsandresorts.com
