More than 300,000 of our trusted Travelers voted in this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards, sharing tales—and tips—from their vacations in Santorini, or weekends spent at Italian palazzos in Ho Chi Minh City. Get ready: These are the 50 best hotels in the world, say our readers, where service, style, good eats, and sublime views make for a memorable stay.
Three blocks north of the Empire State Building on Fifth Avenue, this polished hotel has spacious rooms starting at a generous-for–New York 400-square-feet that are filled with natural light. All units have walnut furnishings, wondrously comfortable Duxiana beds, and deep soaking tubs, while the apartment suites each have a full stainless-steel kitchen. The hotel is also home to several original paintings by New York City artist Alex Katz—the lobby is a great place to start learning about his work.
