"Uptown, not uptight and decidedly New York" is Le Parker Méridien's slogan, but once you step inside you will want to add "really grand" to the list as well. This classy French hotel with views of Central Park opened in 1981. It caters to an upper-class clientele, with amenities such as a rooftop swimming pool and a racquet ball club. It is located in Midtown Manhattan, just a few blocks away from Bergdorf Goodman and Tiffany's.
Famed publisher William Randolph Hearst built this hotel in 1927 for the convenience of his visiting California friends, which helps explain the unusually large suites and tiny lobby. With elegant furnishings, marble baths, walk-in closets and wrap-around terraces, the accommodations should be luxurious enough for even the most discriminating of tastes. Its Midtown address is near Carnegie Hall and the Museum of Modern Art, as well as Central Park, Fifth Avenue shopping and the theaters of Broadway.
