A guest room at The Chatwal in New York City
It's fitting that a hotel as dramatic as this is located in the former Lambs Club, which was America's first professional theater club. The 1905 Stanford White-designed building was given a toe-to-tip makeover by Thierry Despont. Who better to take on a NYC landmark than the man who helped restore the Statue of Liberty? While the hotel takes pride in its early-20th-century Art Deco style, we can easily see a Don Draper-era tête-à-tête taking place in one of these rooms, especially The Stanford White Studio. Among the hotel's many advantages are an infinity lap pool tucked away in the basement, The Chatwal Spa by Kashwére and a show-stopping location near the Great White Way.
