Part of the excitement of visiting NYC is knowing that you are in the middle of it all. Yet at the same time, knowing that you can escape it all and find a relaxing place on top of the NYC world.
Here are our top 4 hotel picks that allow you to escape while enjoying the most impressive skyline views NYC has to offer.
Mandarin Oriental, New York
Make the most of Manhattan’s iconic skyline with panoramic views of the Hudson River and some of the city’s most famous sights (Central Park, Statue of Liberty, and the George Washington Bridge… just to name a few). Located at the top of the Time Warner Center, Mandarin Oriental offers a unique bird’s eye view of the iconic New York skyline. To get the best view in the building we recommend staying in the Presidential suite to enjoy breathtaking views of Central Park without so much as having to get out of the bathtub.

Beginning on the 41st floor the newly opened Towers at the Lotte New York Palace put guests in the perfect position to see unrivaled sweeping views of the city skyline from Madison Avenue and 50th Street. The Jewel Suite at the Towers at the New York Palace offers guests a private terrace including an elevated stone spa where guests can enjoy million-dollar views of the city in their own one-of-a-kind urban escape.
When talking about hotels with breathtaking views of New York City we definitely can’t leave out The Knickerbocker. This is the first luxury hotel to be located atop Times Square offering views you can’t find anywhere else. In addition to the incredible view, the St. Cloud Social Rooftop offers stylish indoor and outdoor seating options, the exclusive Waterford Crystal Lounge and lush living walls of greenery making it a top rooftop bar in New York City.
