Sunset Beach

35 Shore Rd., Shelter Island, New York, 11965, USA

An international crowd has flocked to this trendy hotel ever since celebrity hotelier Andre Balazs (of Los Angeles's Chateau Marmont and SoHo's Mercer) opened it in the late 1990s. Each retro-style guest room has a sundeck that looks out over the parking lot to the water. The beachfront French bistro–style restaurant provides the best people-watching around, and a great place to relax with a cocktail and enjoy the lingering sunset.
