Manhattan: Best Done In A Whirlwind Journey

In my opinion, Manhattan should be done in a mad three-night journey. It allows you to go for broke without actually succeeding. Instead of staying put though, reserve at two of the city’s newest, swankiest hotels. You’ll get a taste of different sides of the city (and save on cab fares). The Surrey, on a posh block of the Upper East Side, is your one-night splurge. Originally a residential hotel built in the ’20s, its lobby now houses Chuck Close’s painting of Kate Moss. Lauren Rottet’s black and white décor is an elegant mix of modern and traditional design, a relief in the era of Philippe Starck.
