This landmark Upper West Side hotel, a short walk from Lincoln Center, Central Park and the Museum of Natural History, debuted a complete renovation in early 2013, in time for its 100th birthday. The grand paneled lobby, which retains its original skylight and mosaic-tiled floor, now has a stylish bar furnished with café tables and crushed-velvet chaise-style sofas. Guest quarters feature wooden floors and comfort-centric details such as padded headboards, Frette linens and iHome iPod docks. Complimentary snacks from gourmet grocer Dean & Deluca and bath products courtesy of iconic East Village chemist C.O. Bigelow are further perks. Parents in particular will appreciate the refrigerators in every room and DVD players in the suites. Also family-friendly are the communal microwave and "media lounge" housing two arcade stations loaded with thousands of games, in addition to three free-to-use iMacs. Rooms: 230.
