Le Parker Meridien

119 W. 56th St., between 6th and 7th Aves., New York, New York, 10019, USA

Combining the comforts of a dependable large hotel with whimsical elements, this hotel keeps visitors coming back with its iconic patty-palace Burger Joint, which serves one of the city's best no-frills burgers from behind a velvet curtain. If you've got more scratch, there's always the famous $1,000 omelet at Norma's (the restaurant also serves slightly more cost-effective items). Rooms are modern functionalist, with low platform beds and televisions hidden in recessed, cherry-paneled cabinets. It's worth asking for a Central Park view, though city views are also impressive. The 20,000-square-foot gym is one of the largest in the city and includes a blow-dry bar, mani-pedi boutique, and spa.
