From big city luxury hotels to countryside inns and lakeside lodges, the best New York hotels reflect their settings, whether you're sitting on a porch swing listening to the sounds of nature, or stepping out onto a busy street from the sleek lobby of a boutique hotel. Here are some highlights among the hotels in New York:
