Stunning art and design are second only to the service at this grand hotel opened in September 2012. A towering sculpture from one of China's most celebrated contemporary artists, Zhang Huan, makes for an impressive entrance, and the bi-level lobby features enormous calligraphy paintings and a handcrafted piano. Design-wise, common areas feature grand materials—marble and dark woods—sleek finishes, and modern furnishings, and in the atrium Lobby Lounge natural light floats in through two-story windows. Guest rooms have Asian design touches like raw-silk wall coverings and replicas of ancient Chinese chairs, plus luxurious amenities like marble baths and separate rain showers—and endless city views. If that's not enough, the hotel complex is also home to three restaurants and a bar by famed New York chef David Chang of the Momofuku empire. New Yorkers are already making reservations.
