Lower Manhattan, New York City, New York
New York may not be the birthplace of the skyscraper, but these days it’s home to some of the most stunning towers in the Western Hemisphere -- old and new. The Beekman, A Thompson Hotel, capitalizes on its Lower Manhattan setting by adding views of classics, like the Woolworth Building, and new additions to the skyline, like One World Trade Center. For the best views, opt for a Corner Suite on a higher floor. Don’t forget to bask in the hotel’s sumptuous Old World-inspired interiors, too, because some of the best views here don’t even require looking outside.
