DREAM DOWN­TOWN

This af­ter-hours spot is known for its glass-ceilinged lobby lounge, which looks into a swim­ming pool above. The hot new restau­rant Megu has an im­pres­sive sushi menu. 355 W. 16th St., 212-229-2559; dreamho­tels.com

THE HIGH LINE HO­TEL

The rooms in this con­verted 1865 dor­mi­tory fea­ture quirky de­tails like ter­rar­i­ums and ro­tary phones from the ’30s. With walking prox­im­ity to Mepa, the Whit­ney, and the ex­cite­ment of Hud­son Yards, this undis­cov­ered gem won’t re­main so for long. 180 10th Ave., 212-9293888; the­high­line­ho­tel.com

THE STAN­DARD, HIGH LINE

When An­dré Balazs opened this 18-story, con­crete-and-glass struc­ture in 2009, it was an in­stant sen­sa­tion— and its cool fac­tor shows no signs of abat­ing. The guest rooms’ floor-to­ceil­ing win­dows, with un­ob­structed views of the Man­hat­tan sky­line, con­tinue to en­chant; the ho­tel’s two late-night spots, Le Bain and Top of the Stan­dard, draw a see-and-be-seen crowd; and the Stan­dard Grill de­liv­ers an ace brunch. 848 Wash­ing­ton St., 212-645-4646; stan­dard­ho­tels.com
