33 W. 55th St. (Fifth & Sixth Aves.) New York NY

Serenity and spacious rooms offer escape from midtown madness.

The West 50s are not exactly known for calm. But even the most harried business exec (or shopaholic) needs to decompress come bedtime. For these travelers, The Shoreham is a refuge. The hotel is one giant relaxation chamber. Public spaces feature stainless steel, marble, frosted-glass panels and a minimalist design. The bar offers the same vibe; its modular lime-colored seats and translucent "living glass" walls (layers of crumpled silk that line sheets of glass) evoke calm and serenity. Here, you can sip a signature "I Shoreham Happy" martini and order a few small bites from the amuse menu, a fusion of Mediterranean, African, Asian and Latin cuisine. Your experience at the hotel starts by sipping a complimentary glass of check-in Champagne while admiring the interactive video art in the lobby. You'll forgive the tiny elevators once you set foot inside your room, especially if you book a suite. They are spacious and chic with groovy retro furnishings. The highlight is a massage chair you may never get out of. Other amenities include Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, customized mini-bars and 300-thread-count down comforters. Beds are back-lit with artful headboards of flower photographs blown up and slipped behind glass. Fresh-cut flowers add just enough color to brighten up the spare bathroom décor. Junior Spa Suites feature oversized bathrooms with Jacuzzi bathtubs. And when it's time to fuel up to head back into the streets, the Shoreham has a 24-hour self-service coffee bar.
