Bryant Park Hotel

40 W. 40th St., between 5th and 6th aves., New York, New York, 10018, USA

A New York landmark that towers over the New York Public Library and Bryant Park, this sleek hotel is still a Midtown hot spot. Rooms have padded leather headboards with decorative bolster pillows and marble bathrooms with a rainfall showerhead and Molton Brown products. Despite the trendiness, the rooms themselves are actually bigger than average, though lower floors tend to be a bit dark and don't have great views. Both the Koi restaurant and Cellar Bar are popular with the after-work crowd (with complimentary open bar for guests between 5 and 6 pm daily), though later in the evening both the restaurants and the neighborhood tend to get quiet. Still, during the day, the location can't be beat, with 5th Avenue and Times Square equidistant from the front door.
