Manhattan still offers the most comprehensive range of NYC hotels. Growth areas include the Financial District, which is getting a new lease on life as the World Trade Center site's redevelopment nears completion. In summer 2010, upscale chain W Hotels debuted its flashy new property, which includes residences as well as a hotel, directly opposite the WTC, and stylish Hilton offshoot Conrad New York took up a riverside spot in Battery Park City in spring 2012.

Hell's Kitchen is popular with a trend-seeking gay clientele—the city's first gay "urban resort," The Out NYC, opened in 2012—and anyone who wants to be near the Theater District. The British team behind capsule-hotel brand Yotel recently introduced a supersized variation on the concept in the neighborhood. Hip mini chain Ace Hotel colonized an area at the northern edge of the Flatiron District, which is emerging as a hotel (and restaurant) hot spot—the long-awaited NoMad Hotel, from the same developer, debuted in spring 2012 with a restaurant helmed by high-profile chef Daniel Humm. There is now more choice in boutique hotels in desirable areas like Nolita, Chelsea and Greenwich Village, with the arrival of the Nolitan, Hôtel Americano and the Jade Hotel, respectively.
