A luxe downtown Manhattan destination

As one of just a few luxury hotels in Lower Manhattan, Conrad New York stands out from the moment you walk in. The atrium lobby is a showstopper with its 15-story, blue-and-purple Sol LeWitt mural reflecting azure hues onto the two-story, cable-and-aluminum sculpture by Monica Ponce de Leon. Thanks to those statement pieces, and more than 2,000 other works of modern and contemporary art on display, the property offers a sense of elegance at nearly every turn.

The 463 guest suites — yes, they are all suites, with an average size of more than 430 square feet  — are nothing short of contemporary works of art themselves. Expect a two-room layout, which provides plenty of extra space for work or leisure, with a blond wood design scheme, contemporary accents and integrated technology.

Head down to the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel's onsite restaurant, Atrio, for a Mediterranean meal along with views of the Hudson River. Of course, if you happen to visit during warmer weather, make your way up to Loopy Doopy Rooftop Bar for some light bites and craft cocktails.
