The Strand

33 W. 37th St. (Fifth Ave.) New York NY

A stylish dame with rooftop views and lots of freebies.

Ooh, pretty. The Strand has such a cool dame air about her. We can easily imagine Katharine Hepburn walking through the lobby. Though far from a theme hotel, this place is definitely influenced by the nearby garment district. It's a visual treat loaded with gorgeous textiles, a great photography collection and, best of all, views of the city that surrounds her. The rooms also offer plenty to look at, but in a relaxing way, with a color palette much softer than that of the lobby. Most bathrooms just have showers; guests who prefer a good soak need to ask for one of the superior rooms with a tub. All rooms are decked out with must-have technology, including iPod-enabled clock radios and flat-screen TVs. The freebies at The Strand are worth noting: complimentary Wi-Fi in all rooms and a European-style buffet breakfast. Ascend to the 21st floor and you will find yourself in the lounge and bar, Top of the Strand. Here guests can gaze out onto midtown below while unwinding on one of the banquettes surrounded by the verdant rooftop garden; unlike at the nearby Empire State Building, you won't have to wait in a crazy long line for the privilege. The hotel also has an American bistro, a business center and a small fitness center.
