A captivating view is an extremely discriminating factor in urban areas where “City View” often equals “brick, wall, A/C unit” – unpleasant features. Here is an homage to rare hotels, who constantly redefined what a guestroom should be, and what it should look out to. Here is inspiration for all the travelers who want to leave the curtains open, and enjoy their picture windows as a place of discovery.
Los Angeles – Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel
Live out your “Pretty Woman” fantasy at this Four Seasons property located on top of world-famous Rodeo Drive. Beverly Wilshire has been a landmark of history and glamour since opening in 1928. Enjoy some of the most unforgettable panoramas of Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and the Hollywood Hills. Luxury suites like the Veranda or Governor Suites enjoy wraparound terraces offering up to 270-degree views of the city of Angels.
Las Vegas – The Venetian
At almost twice the size of the average Las Vegas hotel room, the Venetian offers the largest standard suites on the Strip – and they come with a view. Being centrally located on the Strip, you will enjoy gorgeous vistas of neighboring iconic casinos. Fancy taking a bath in the Chairman Suite and looking down on Celine Dion’s Colosseum at the Caesar Palace? Possible. Want to see the Eiffel Tower without going to France? Also possible.
Hoboken – W Hotel
Hoboken, New Jersey isn’t exactly New York City, but staying on the banks of the Hudson River offers the most amazing panoramas of Manhattan. The W Hoboken offers hip nightlife and delectable dining, but is most famous for its picture windows and balconies from where Manhattan sunrises will unfold before your eyes. Just a 20-minutes cab ride from the booming Meatpacking district, you’ll definitely experience a NYC getaway like no other.
Philadelphia – Hotel Monaco
If you haven’t visited the City of Brotherly Love, spring is the time to do so. Philadelphia offers an exciting food scene, typical east coast architecture, and historical sites second to none. The design of the Hotel Monaco is spectacular, melding old and new, global and local – all with vibrant colors. Outside your windows, views of the Old Town in the forefront and skyscrapers at the back are the perfect backdrop for a city escapade. The jewel of this view: Independence Hall, the birthplace of the US.
Miami Beach – The Betsy
The Betsy is a refined, beach-side haven located in the heart of South Beach. It is one of only three Florida hotels on the 2017 Condé Nast Traveler Gold List Award. Choose a Deluxe Room to face East and overlook Lummus Park and the Atlantic Ocean, or opt for one of the suites located on Collins Avenue to enjoy close-ups of the beautiful surrounding Art Deco buildings.
