Mapplr’s favorite hotels in New York City

New York City has some of the best hotels in the world, but until recently, they’ve been too expensive for mere mortals. Not anymore. Because of the financial crisis and the downturn in the travel industry, even the most luxurious boutique hotels are offering rates you might never see again until the next financial crisis.

So now is a good time to visit the city. There’s something for every taste, from the cerebral, gentleman’s club atmosphere at the Library Hotel to the wickedly erotic Night. But if you want spectacular views and stunning interior decor, check out The Standard, which is part of the André Balazs hotel empire. Balazs owns the Mercer (also in NYC), the Raleigh in Miami Beach and the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles.
