Originally built as a rectory, this restored Victorian inn with five guest rooms is within walking distance of Warren Street's plentiful antiques shops and boutiques.

Intimate, elegant, and authentically Villagey, the Abingdon occupies two adjacent, refurbished 18th-century Federal town houses in the heart of the West Village.

At Kate’s Lazy Meadow Motel, the quirky personality of Kate Pierson, one of the lead singers for the B-52’s, shines through in every detail.

The 10 motel-style rooms are outfitted with crisp white linens and flat-screen televisions.

Taking its cue from the Ikea school of cheap chic, this youth-oriented urban hotel isn't for everyone. But its 347 tiny, clean, cleverly designed rooms—very mod, with stainless-steel sinks and Eames-inspired desk chairs—are a blessing for anyone visiting New York on a budget.

Situated in the 1926 Taft Hotel building, a 22-story Spanish Renaissance—style structure on Seventh Avenue, this Italian-inspired hotel is just a four-minute walk from Times Square.

Opt for the Mother & Daughter Retreat Package, which includes 75-minute facials, manicures, pedicures, and a two-night stay at this country lodge on a private Lake George island with a Donald Ross golf course.

The property is a nice change from the area’s chain hotels: B&B accommodations, art glass, and antiques in an 1890 Greek Revival mansion in a leafy residential neighborhood.

Located in midtown Manhattan just steps from Times Square and Broadway, Hotel Edison was built in 1931 in the same art deco style as Radio City Music Hall. Today, the former depression era hotel welcomes guests into its guest rooms, which offer a neutral palate in shades of tan and brown.

The Mercer's six floor Romanesque-revival style building is a landmark of SoHo. The interior, designed by Christian Liaigre, is accented by dark African wood, subtle colors, and supple leather.

As sumptuous and plush as the Four Seasons (a few blocks away) is slick and modern, the popular MO occupies the 35th through the 54th floors of the Time Warner Center at the southwest corner of Central Park.

Built and designed by its owners, the bed and breakfast has an eccentric Victorian vibe with rooms full of antiques.

Attracting a steady flow of celebrities (like its Meatpacking District sibling), this NoMad (north of Madison Square Park) hotel is within easy walking distance of Union Square, the Theatre District, and the Empire State Building. Throughout the 249-room hotel, décor makes a statement.

The 201-room Tribeca Grand is significantly smaller than its SoHo sister property, but you wouldn't know it from the hotel's soaring atrium, eight stories tall and naturally illuminated thanks to translucent skylights.
