Whether you’re looking to have your main character moment sipping cocktails and reading a book in a dimly lit corner of a hotel bar or you simply just, like, actually need a hotel to stay at, this one in NYC is in the world’s 50 best hotels–and in the top 25 no less!
And considering the list features hotels from 34 destinations across six continents, we’d say this feat is pretty impressive.
Those that made the list were awarded for their stellar hospitality, including that which was named the first-ever World’s Best Hotel (this is the first time The World’s 50 Best did a ranking on hotels).
That title, by the way, went to Passalacqua in Lake Como, Italy, which, consisting of 24 rooms in an 18th-century villa, “is a showcase of the finest Italian craftsmanship in a sumptuous riot of ornate Baroque elegance. Ceiling carvings, original frescoes, Murano chandeliers and perfectly manicured gardens: it all comes together in a sublime retreat.”
(P.S. you can get to Rome from NYC for under $300 with this airline!)
