Fodor's Review

Though this hotel was built in 1955 as the headquarters of Standard Oil, you might not know it, because the building was completely revamped in 2002 under the sharp eye of owner André Balazs, who ordered up a sleek, cutting-edge feel. The large guest rooms are practical and funky: all have sexy see-through showers, windows that open, and platform beds. Some bathrooms have extra-large tubs. The indoor-outdoor rooftop lounge has a happening social scene and stunning setting, but be prepared for some attitude at the door. And the Ping-Pong lounge is a haven for people-watching.
