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.

The brick-and-steel Nu Hotel has 93 minimalist-chic rooms appointed with faux-sheepskin rugs, gauzy white curtains, and Brooklyn-centric artwork.
