Boston – The Liberty Hotel, A Luxury Collection Hotel
Rich with history and full of ornate architecture, The Liberty Hotel is centrally located and steps away from shopping, dining, Boston Common, and much, much more. For those not familiar with The Liberty, it is one of the only jails (masterfully) transformed into a boutique hotel – the former Charles Street Jail is a national historic landmark built in 1851. This should be reason enough for a stay, but we want views too! From your window or deck, enjoy the most sweeping views of the Boston skyline, including Beacon Hill and the Charles River.
Washington – The Hay-Adams
Housed in an Italian Renaissance-style building constructed in 1928, The Hay-Adams boasts the best White House views of any Washington, D.C. property. Guestrooms include custom Italian linens, Etro bath amenities and Bose sound systems. The service may be 5 stars, but the views are out of this world: panoramas of the White House, Lafayette Park and St. John’s Church await you from your bedroom windows.
San Francisco – Fairmont San Francisco
World-renowned, Fairmont San Francisco is the first-ever property of the chain; it is also the historical place where the United Nations have been formed in 1945. The grandeur of this luxury hotel atop Nob Hill, coupled with spectacular panoramas of the city and the Bay, make it timeless. The only spot in San Francisco where each of the city’s cable car lines meet, the Fairmont offers unparalleled views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, the Financial District, Union Square and all of Downtown.
New York City – The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park
In a metropolis like New York City when all your senses are permanently triggered, there is nothing more precious than calm and peace. This is what the Ritz-Carlton aims to offer. From the large bedroom windows, gaze at the immensity of Central Park, enjoy sunrises on Central Park West, devise a visit plan for the day and come home in time for sunset on prestigious Fifth Avenue. The prime midtown Manhattan address also affords an easy walk to shopping on Fifth and Madison avenues, Radio City Music Hall, the Museum of Modern Art, and some fantastic restaurants.
Chicago – LondonHouse
Chicago has long been acclaimed for its stunning architecture: a mix of Gothic, Beaux Arts, Art Deco, Georgian, Modern and industrial. All those styles will blend together before your eyes as you step in your room at the LondonHouse. The newly-renovated building sits along the Chicago River and offers breathtaking urban views of Michigan Avenue, the Wrigley Building, the infamous Marina City and much, much more – including yachts coming and going on the waterway. If you couldn’t get your hand on a room, you should at least go up to the Rooftop for a drink.
