Trump International Hotel & Tower New York

1 Central Pk. W.
New York , NY , United States http://www.trumphotelcollection.com/central-park/
(212) 299-1000

This soaring black monolith on Columbus Circle, with its gold awning that seems to jut out into traffic, isn't the subtlest hotel in town—but then The Donald has never been known for his modesty. In fact, when the Mandarin Oriental opened nearby in 2003, Trump boasted (in block letters, on the side of the Trump) that his hotel had the better Central Park views. The thing is, though—he's right. The Trump's 35 Park View Suites, each 900 or 950 square feet with nine-foot windows overlooking the park's south end, really do feel as though they're directly on top of Manhattan's greenest patch. Even the rest of the hotel's 167 units, though, feel like tricked-out condos; all are modern, with cream-colored fabrics, large closets, and jetted tubs; all suites have full kitchens. You're not treated like royalty here as much as like a bigwig executive; the staff includes personal "attachés" who can arrange your meeting schedules and stock your fridge before you arrive, and a cadre of personal trainers who can tailor your workout or set the pace as you jog in the park.

Tip:With a serious fitness room and mirrors everywhere, this is the perfect place for people with—how to put it?—a healthy sense of self-regard.

Room to Book: The 00-line Park View Suites have the most windowpane acreage, and thus the best views.
