• Issue 7: New York

      Sexy and fun, the Meatpacking District’s Gansevoort boasts a rooftop pool and bar, proximity to great shopping and restaurants, and breathtaking views. (Look for the Freedom Tower and the Empire State Building!) This is not the sort of place you’d put up your parents; rooms have bold color schemes like purple and white. Pro tip: Spring for a room with a sweet little Juliet balcony, all the better to enjoy the sights and sounds of NYC.
