The James New York, located in trendy SoHo on Thompson and Grand streets, stands out from the surrounding buildings on account of its height. The view from inside is marvelous. The hotel's 114 rooms are decorated in a contemporary style with warm and neutral tones, as well as art by well-known and up-and-coming artists.

There's an open garden called "Urban Garden," designed by Rebecca Cole. It's not simply a green space; film screenings, yoga classes, and croquet matches also take place here. The garden is home to David Burke Garden, a bar and restaurant where you can enjoy delicious tuna tartare with avacado and tomato gazpacho with shrimp. The main restaurant, David Burke Kitchen, named after the celebrity chef, serves original and contemporary American cuisine.

Jimmy, the lounge and bar on the roof, features an unbelievable view of the Hudson River, the Brooklyn Bridge, and Wall Street. Cool hunters gather here. If you plan on coming after 9 p.m., make sure you're well-dressed, or else you might not get in.

Key info: Smoking on the terrace is forbidden. We recommend starting your day with a run in the 24-hour gym on the 17th floor. In the summer, you can take a dip in the rooftop pool. If you travel with animals, be sure to let the hotel know, and they'll make up a special sleeping area for your pet and give you information about where you can walk your pet in the city.

Rooms start at $400 per night.
