The Plaza Hotel: for those of us who are still kids at heart, we know that name from Home Alone 2 or Eloise at the Plaza. Along with The Plaza Hotel, The JW Marriott Essex House, The Nomad Hotel, The New York Palace and The Marriott Marquis New York are all some of the most beautiful and well known hotels in New York City. Nowadays, the majority of people traveling and visiting hotels are families, young adults, and businessmen and women – all very modern and tech savvy demographics. We have found 10 of the most beautiful and modern hotels in NYC for you to enjoy! Take a look and starting planning your weekend getaway to the Big Apple!

President and CEO of DWR, John Edelman, wants to bring good design to the forefront. It’s a combination of timeless design pieces with the modern flare of decor.
9. Crosby Street Hotel | Crosby & Spring
