The 30 Best Hotels in New York with a View

One of the first things that comes to mind when I think of NYC is the fantastic views the city has to offer! This is why we love rooftop bars and lounges as well as hotels that let you look out over the city. Admiring all the famous skyscrapers and buildings of New York while relaxing and enjoying the wonderful privacy of your own hotel room is a great way to start your mornings in New York City. 

During our last stay, we enjoyed views across the Hudson River throughout the day and night. Our hotel room at the The Standard High Line had an amazing view of everything from the High Line Park to One World Trade Center. It’s sensational to wake up or slide into bed with a view like that just beyond your toes. Thanks to online discounts, you can also take advantage of lower prices for hotels in New York with a view like this on a regular basis. We were blown away many hotels we have stayed at in the city and have therefore compiled this list of the best ones with a view.

Further down, you will find the 👉 most beautiful Hotels in New York with a View on a map.

    Add to myNY added

    3 Sterne | Eine weitere Empfehlung der besten Hotels am One World Observatory ist das Courtyard by Marriott Hotel. Das sehr chice Courtyard by Marriott New York hat ein Restaurant, eine Bar und auch kostenfreies WLAN in allen Bereichen. Nur genau 322 m vom World Trade Center entfernt, könnte man kaum näher am höchsten Gebäude der Stadt übernachten, oder? Jedes Zimmer in diesem Hotel ist klimatisiert und mit einem Flachbild-Kabel-TV ausgestattet.

    Hotels & Accommodations in Theatre District
    Add to myNY added

    4 stars | Recently renovated, the M Social New York is located in Times Square in the Theatre District. Along with the Hyatt Times Square, it’s another Times Square hotel that’s one of my top 27 New York hotels with a great view. The rooms are very modern and chic and offer views of Broadway, Times Square or the Hudson River. The location makes it very desirable – yet you can sleep quietly here. This is made possible by the soundproof glazing of the floor-to-ceiling windows.

    From Rockefeller Center with its viewing platform “Top of the Rock” to the famous Broadway, where you can watch the most popular musicals in New York, everything is in close proximity. 

  9. 08

    Our Highlight
    Add to myNY added

    5 Stars | The Equinox Hotel at Hudson Yards is one of the newest and most trendy hotels in New York, and we were lucky enough to stay there for two days. The highlight (apart from the hotel itself) is the rooftop bar and lounge overlooking the Hudson River. Spectacular. 

  10. 09

    The Times Square EDITION

    Hotels & Accommodations in Theatre District
    Add to myNY added

    5 stars | One of the best hotels in Times Square is The Times Square EDITION. In my experience, everything is just right here: cool design, wonderful atmosphere, rooftop bar and a sensational view of Times Square (and the ball drop on New Year’s Eve).

  11. 10

    Hotels & Accommodations in Chinatown
    Add to myNY added

  13. 12

    MADE Hotel

    Hotels & Accommodations in Korea Town
    Add to myNY added

    4 stars | MADE Hotel is located in the heart of Midtown and is one of the coolest accommodations in this neighborhood, which I personally love. The hotel is  modern, really nicely designed, contains a lot of greenery (which contributes to the wonderful atmosphere) and has as icing on the cake a rooftop bar & lounge called “Lounge Good Behavior” on the 18th floor of the hotel. The view of the city is really nice! 

    The Empire State Building is only 3 blocks away, Washington Square Park and Union Square are within easy reach, and you don’t even need the subway to get to New York’s many other attractions. The MADE Hotel is located in the Koreatown neighborhood on the border of Murray Hill – that’s why I put it on the list of the best hotels in Murray Hill NYC!

  14. 13

    Mandarin Oriental Central Park

    Hotels & Accommodations in Upper West Side
    Add to myNY added

    5 Sterne | Das luxuriöse Mandarin Oriental Hotel zeichnet sich durch einen wunderbaren Mix aus asiatisch angehauchtem und klassischem Design aus. Die Räume sind unglaublich schön eingerichtet und bieten einen herrlichen Panorama-Blick über den Central Park, Manhattan oder sogar den Hudson-River.

  15. 14

    Millennium Hilton New York One UN Plaza

    Hotels & Accommodations in Midtown Manhattan
    Add to myNY added

    4 stars | The Millennium Hilton New York One UN Plaza is also called “ONE UN New York” and is one of the hotels in New York fwith a wunderful view over the East River,  Chrysler and Empire State Building and the newest observation deck The Summit. 

    As the name suggests, you’re right by the UN building in Murray Hill – it’s quiet, there are lots of relaxed bars and restaurants near you. This is the reason why I like Murray Hill so much!

  16. 15

    Pestana Park Avenue

    Hotels & Accommodations in Murray Hill
    Add to myNY added

    4 stars | The Pestana Park Avenue is for me one of the most beautiful hotels in Murray Hill: the hotel rooms are really big for New York standards, very nice and modern furnished and some of them even have a balcony from which you can look at the city and especially at the Empire State Building. It has only recently opened, so the furnishings from the lobby to the terrace to the rooms are all up to date.

    Attractions like Bryant Park and Grand Central Station are within a few minutes walking distance, you are in the heart of the city!

  17. 16

    Sheraton Tribeca New York Hotel

    Hotels & Accommodations in Tribeca
    Add to myNY added

    4 Stars | The Sheraton Hotel in Tribeca is a truly outstanding hotel: the rooms are bright, big, and you can enjoy the view of the city from the rooftop terrace. Here you are right in the center of all the hustle and bustle of New York City. But inside the hotel, you won’t even notice that. It’s such a perfect combination.

  18. 17

    SIXTY LES Hotel

    Hotels & Accommodations in Lower East Side
    best staycation hotels nyc
    Add to myNY added

    4 Stars | The highlights of the Sixty LES are definitely the rooftop pool, gym, and spa. The stylish rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows. My advice: When booking, definitely ask for a room on one of the higher floors and, with a little luck, enjoy a great view of the Empire State Building.

  19. 18

    The Hoxton Williamsburg

    Hotels & Accommodations in Williamsburg
    Hoxton Williamsburg Hotel East River Views
    Add to myNY added

    4 Stars | For me, the Hoxton in Williamsburg is one of the most beautiful hotels in New York: from the rooftop bar you have a spectacular view of Manhattan, and the rooms are very tastefully decorated. I felt at home immediately! 

  20. 19

    The Marlton Hotel

    Hotels & Accommodations in Greenwich Village
    Add to myNY added

    4 stars | The Marlton Hotel is located in the heart of Greenwich Village – just one block from Washington Square Park. It is a beautiful bohemian-style boutique hotel and feels like a little part of Paris in the middle of New York City. 

    The building, lobby and rooms have been lovingly restored and have a very special atmosphere. 

    My tip: Book one of the rooms on the upper floors. They have a balcony from which you can look out over Washington Square Park!

  21. 20

    The New Yorker – A Wyndham Hotel

    Hotels & Accommodations in Hell's Kitchen
    Add to myNY added

    4 Stars| The hotel with arguably the best views of Central Park and Columbus Circle is the Mandarin Oriental. This luxurious hotel is a wonderful combination of classic design and a touch of Asian style. The guest rooms are beautifully appointed and provide the best panoramic views of Central Park. It has earned its place on this list! You will however have the difficult choice of selecting a room facing Central Park, or a room with views from the George Washington Bridge all the way to the Statue of Liberty. Whichever direction you choose, the view from the floor-to-ceiling windows ensure an absolutely spectacular vista of NYC.

  22. 21

    The Peninsula Hotel

    Hotels & Accommodations in Midtown Manhattan
    Add to myNY added

    5 stars | The Peninsula Hotel should be included in every list of hotels in New York with the best views of Manhattan. It is located in the center of Manhattan and the skyline seems close enough for you to reach out and touch it. Its location on 55th Street and 5th Avenue means that you can feel the energy of the midst of the city from its terrace. While the views are impressive during the day, they hit a whole ‘nother level as soon as darkness falls. From here you can watch the yellow taxis stream through midtown in the rhythm of the traffic lights and the tiny-looking people hurrying amongst them from above. You can also enjoy this incredible view from your bed  in the spa area thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows. The Peninsulas small rooftop bar – The Salon de Ning – is also a great spot to spend your night!

  23. 22

    The Refinery Hotel

    Hotels & Accommodations in Midtown Manhattan
    Our Highlight
    Add to myNY added

    4 Stars | I can’t recommend the Refinery Hotel highly enough – it is ideally located (only two blocks away from Bryant Park), has one of the most relaxed rooftop bars in the entire city (with a view of the Empire State Building) and the rooms are large and nicely furnished. You’ll definitely feel at home here!

  24. 23

    The Setai Fifth Avenue

    Hotels & Accommodations in Midtown Manhattan
    Add to myNY added

    5 stars | The Setai Fifth Avenue at the Empire State Building was once called “The Langham” and is a luxury hotel with great service that impresses couples in particular. The Langham Place, New York, Fifth Avenue is located in the city’s most popular neighborhood and has great public transportation connections.

    The rooms are very modernly furnished and just under 40m² in size. The bathrooms convince with shower and bathtub and a TV integrated in the mirror. Sports enthusiasts will love the in-house gym, which is very well equipped, and gastro fans will be delighted with the Michelin-starred restaurant. Being right next to the Empire State Building, The Setai Fifth Avenue is perfectly situated for a day of sightseeing in New York.

    This hotel at the Empire State Building is particularly suitable for travelers with a slightly higher travel budget, as the Langham Palace is not entirely inexpensive, but something very special in any case!

  25. 24

    The Standard Hotel High Line

    Hotels & Accommodations in Meatpacking District
    Add to myNY added

    4 Stars | The Standard High Line Hotel is located in the heart of the trendy Meatpacking District and offers tremendous views of the Hudson River all the way to One World Trade Center. Sunsets are especially breathtaking and the floor-to-ceiling panoramic make sure you can see it all from your bed. Additionally, the hotel features a superb restaurant as well as a sheltered area called The Plaza, where you can enjoy freshly-made focaccia or burrata (Definitely try this, its delicious!). The bathroom also has incredible views – great for taking a relaxing bath while looking out over the New York skyline & the Hudson River.

  26. 25

    The Dominick Hotel

    Hotels & Accommodations in Hudson Square
    Add to myNY added

    5 Stars | The Dominick Hotel prides itself being the only 5-star-hotel in all of Soho! It also happens to be the tallest building in Soho, so you have a great view over the city. Since the rest of the neighborhood isn’t filled with skyscrapers, the hotel stands out significantly. This caused a number of controversies during its construction due to many locals favoring a building that would conform to the building height of its surrounding architecture. The hotel was built nonetheless, and as a result offers some incredible views over Manhattan. It is beautifully decorated, and the floor-to-ceiling windows provide a view in the direction of your choice. Guest rooms feature predominantly dark materials & furnishings, instilling a calm and soothing atmosphere.

  27. 26

    Gansevoort Hotel Meatpacking District

    Hotels & Accommodations in Meatpacking District
    Add to myNY added

    5 Stars | The owners of the Gansevoort hotels place great emphasis on design, which you will immediately notice. Its location in the Meatpacking District puts you right in the middle of everything: the High Line, great restaurants and bars are in the immediate vicinity (the Meatpacking District is one of my favorite parts of the city). It also has a large pool from where you can look out over the rooftops of the city. It feels so luxurious!

  28. 27

    Hyatt Centric Times Square New York

    Hotels & Accommodations in Theatre District
    Add to myNY added

    4 Stars | The Hyatt at Times Square arguably offers the best views of Times Square at the heart of Manhattan. Lively, colorful, and always full of action – you can relax in your room and watch the hustle and bustle down below. The guest rooms are well furnished giving you a feeling of bring right at home. The hotel has 54 stories however each floor only consists of 11 rooms, meaning the spaces are spacious and the floors are quiet. The hotel also has its own rooftop bar, Bar 54, which offers fantastic views of everything from the East River to the Hudson. When it gets cooler you can also head to the lounge or to the deluxe spa area, which offer amazing views and a fireplace respectively! I give this property extra credit because some rooms also feature their own balconies from which you can enjoy the cityscape in peace and quiet.

  29. 28

    The Standard East Village

    Hotels & Accommodations in East Village
    Add to myNY added

    4 Stars | The Standard East Village is the sister hotel of The Standard High Line and is equally stylish and clean. The location in the East Village is perfect for those who appreciate the food scene. What sets The Standard in the East Village apart is the beautiful design and clean decor. I’m a very big fan of that – and the view from your hotel room is unmatched!

    Unlike many other hotels in this star category, the rooms are relatively spacious, and you can admire the city wonderfully through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Only one thing bugged me a bit: the closets are too small.

  30. 29

    Trump International Hotel & Tower

    Hotels & Accommodations in Upper West Side
    Add to myNY added

    5 Stars | The view from the rooms of the Trump International Hotel with floor-to-ceiling windows is truly magnificent. Here you can look out over Manhattan and Central Park from your bed and in the evening enjoy the city lights from high above. Two excellent restaurants are part of the hotel, as is a huge 6,000 square meters spa area.

    If you want to combine luxury with a perfect view over Central Park, the Trump International is the place for you. The Trump International Hotel & Tower is located at the southern end of Central Park. Columbus Circle and the Lincoln Center are in the immediate vicinity.

  31. 30

    YOTEL Times Square

    Hotels & Accommodations in Hell's Kitchen

    3 Stars | This hotel gives you incredibly good value for your money. Also, it offers a fantastic views over the city, located right in New York’s legendary area Hell’s Kitchen. What else is close to the YOTEL Times Square? Not only Broadway, where you can see the most popular musicals in New York, but also Rockefeller Center with its “Top of the Rock” observation deck, Bryant Park, the Flatiron and much, much more.
