Chelsea Hotel, Atlantic City, NJ
The Chelsea has revived and revamped the ’50s with its retro interiors (leopard-print chaise longues, a purple pool table) and the Sea Spa, which offers themed-name treatments like the Blonde Ambition Swedish massage. Once you’re feeling beautiful, parade through the hotel’s outdoor Cabana Club bar, where DJs spin, scenesters lounge in private cabanas around the pool and skinny girls in stiletto heels sip fruity champagne cocktails.

Woodcliff Hotel & Spa, Fairport, NY
This streamlined brick and tinted-glass construction smack in Rochester suburbia draws the convention crowd, but the compact spa gets some of the best business in town thanks to its wide-ranging services (such as the four-hands massage, facials, scrubs and hairstyling, along with an indoor pool, sunbathing deck and nine miles of hiking trails) and all-organic products.

Crystal Springs, Hamburg, NJ
The two spas at this golf resort—an hour west of the city—refuse to stand in the shadow of its championship courses: Elements’ earthy cures incorporate minerals and mud; while Reflections—bedecked with a crystal quartz ceiling—goes all out with decadent treatments like the champagne, caviar and truffles facial. If you feel you need to earn such pampering, Mountain Creek Water Park (mountaincreekwaterpark.com) is right nearby. 3621 Rte 24 (crystalgolfresort.com). Rooms from $189; packages including spa treatments from $177.
