In a sky-high tower near the landmark United Nations building, the ONE UN New York starts on the 28th floor, offering fabulous views—ask for a room facing west, toward Manhattan's skyline—and a multilingual staff that caters to a discerning clientele including heads of state. The serene rooms are warmly lit with pops of soft orange against neutral furniture. Excellent amenities include the 27th-floor pool and health club with dazzling views, the only indoor tennis
court in a New York hotel, and a convenient coffee bar serving Italian Illy products. Service throughout is first-rate, though the common areas have seen better days.
