Straddling Park and Madison Avenues, this stylish hotel is right in the midst of all the movie-set beauty of midtown Manhattan, with designer boutiques and nail spas on the doorstep. The rooms are some of the largest in the city, with walk-in wardrobes and space to hoard all your shopping bags. Try for a view of Central Park and you'll have the ultimate New York experience. The restaurant, L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon, is a gastronomic delight where you can watch the creative chefs as they fuse French and Asian cuisine. Wow factor: Head straight to the bar for apple martinis served in retro silver shakers with succulent raisins on the side.
