There’s nothing like a quick vacation sans the hassle that comes with getting there. Hop in a cab and head for the ultimate staycation destination -- here are some of our ultimate faves:
 

GRAMERCY PARK HOTEL
This stunning Gramercy cornerstone evokes the look, feel, and hospitality of a bygone era.

2 Lexington Avenue at Gramercy Park North


THE PIERRE
Uptown chic meets historic glam at this luxurious UES icon, serving Manhattanites and their staycationing whims alongside discerning international guests since 1930. Be sure to check out the newly-reopened Rotunda for a glass of bubbly in breathtaking digs.

2 East 61st Street at Fifth Avenue

THE PLAZA
A classic, simply put. Make like Eloise and set up shop here for the night, making sure to pencil in some time for afternoon tea at the Palm Court.

768 Fifth Avenue at 59th Street
 

CROSBY STREET HOTEL
This colorful, courtyard-studded English wonderland is the gem of Crosby Street, and rightfully so.

79 Crosby Street between Prince and Spring Streets

HIGH LINE HOTEL
This Chelsea staple and its iconic patio are so much more than just frozen Negronis. Cozy up in to this 1865 converted dormitory and take in all the rich, vintage glory.

180 Tenth Avenue between 20th and 21st Streets
 

THE WILLIAM VALE
Williamsburg’s biggest, baddest, and brand-newest hotel is a sight for sore eyes, offering the best view of Manhattan from terraces in every single room. Andrew Carmellini’s dining destinations are set to open any minute now.

111 North 12th Street, Williamsburg

THE ROXY
Formerly the TriBeCa Grand, The Roxy’s reincarnation brings a subterranean jazz club and an ultra-cool hair salon tucked into the sprawling, Art Deco-inspired space. You’ll never have to (or want to) set foot outside, unless it’s for the glass noodles across the street at Macao.

2 Avenue of the Americas at Church Street

SIXTY SOHO/LES
SIXTY Hotels are a new breed of hospitality, gone rogue in the best way. Choose your neighborhood vibe between the low-key sleepy SoHo location (home to Sessanta and The Gordon Bar) or head to the East Side for major pool party happenings at its LES sister property.

60 Thompson Street between Broome and Spring Streets/190 Allen Street between Stanton and East Houston Streets
