The top 5 new hotels in NYC

Inside Five of New York's Priciest Hotel Suites
Wythe Hotel
80 Wythe Ave., nr. N. 11th St., Williamsburg; 718-460-8000
Andrew Tarlow, of Marlow & Sons and Roman's, has set out to prove he's more than a restaurateur with this 70-room waterfront textile factory turned hotel. That said, the gritty-glam property's heartbeat is naturally in his main-level dining spot, Reynard, and its courtyard.

The Knickerbocker
6 Times Sq., nr. Broadway; 212-204-4980
Even though this landmark site was originally built as a hotel in 1906 by John Jacob Astor IV, it was only open at that time for 15 years. Now it's rebranded as a luxury hotel with a European flare in the thick of Times Square.

The Paul
32 W. 29th St., nr. Broadway; 212-204-5750
The Paul aims to be personal: Visitors are encouraged to ask staff any and all questions they have about sightseeing, dining, and nightlife. Also, those named "Paul" (or some variation thereof) get a discount.

1 Central Park
1414 Sixth Ave., nr. 58th St.; 212-703-2001
Filled with reclaimed woods and bricks, this hotel has a very rustic feel. It's quaint but still boasts amenities like in-room massages and a brand-new restaurant by chef Jonathan Waxman. It also offers guests the use of a sky map and mini-binoculars to stargaze in Central Park and complimentary snack bags to carry around while sightseeing.

28 W. 53rd St., nr. Fifth Ave.; 844-294-1764
Looking for an upscale stay? Look no further than the famed crystal-maker's first hotel, where even the pool is decked out with the brand's sparkling sconces and mirrors and the bar with its chandeliers. The rooms are outfitted with four-poster beds and single-touch devices that control lighting and temperature and connect to the concierge desk.
