The 80-year old island staple, where Charles Lindbergh once visited, gave its 107 rooms a multimillion dollar overhaul in 2009. The property has a scaled-down replica of the town’s famous lighthouse, not to mention three pools, four tennis courts, a spa, and a marina.

Andre Balazs has made frugality fun at this whimsical Times Square address.

Family-owned and operated since 1869, the 251-room Mohonk Mountain House resembles a Victorian castle—albeit one known for its daily outdoor activities.

Units at this gray-shingled northeastern beach cottage come with their own kitchens for staging private wine-and-cheese wind-downs.

In a landmark building on the Upper East Side, The Mark has been reimagined by French designer Jacques Grange as a soigné retreat. The striking black-and-white, Op Art lobby announces this is no longer a frumpy enclave for ladies who lunch.

The highlight of this animal farm is Apple, the potbellied pig whose bristly coat is an almost meditative pleasure to pet and who may very well try to eat you (in a good-natured piggy way). Human accommodations are entirely unpretentious, with rooms facing out to the distant peaks.

Stylish and compact, this former members-only club is a well-designed secret among midtown hotels. The 65 smallish rooms have combed-plaster walls, chocolate-marble showers, and Honduran mahogany accents; TV's placed behind two-way mirrors are clever space-savers.

Raising the opulence bar—even for a Four Seasons property—this soaring, sleek, I. M. Pei-designed tower epitomizes the cool high life in this coolest of American cities.

This inn’s breakfast has made a name for itself as one of Long Island’s most indulgent; don’t leave without sampling the lobster frittatas and crayfish and andouille étouffe omelettes.

This trendsetting refuge for downtown movers and shakers still has as much élan as it did when it opened in 1996.
