Upper West Side, Manhattan, New York City
Massive (rooms start at 420 square feet), thoroughly modern rooms with elegant Asian decor, high-tech electronics, and bathrooms that include small flat-screen TVs. Beds have pillow-top mattresses and Egyptian cotton sheets by Fili D'oro. Addition perks include a yoga mat and books labeled "Bedside Reading" -- like an ironic pairing of The Great Gatsby and "Warren Buffet and the Interpretation of Financial Statements." Guests are even encouraged to take the books home.
