The Hotel: Made
This Devli Group-owned hotel in the heart of downtown Manhattan offers guests the chance to admire the Empire State Building from their bedroom's floor-to-ceiling windows. If your room doesn't quite have the view, you can see the seminal structure from the roof terrace, where you'll also be able to enjoy creative cocktails, craft beers and especially clean air thanks to the fabulous foliage. Ferris lures people down to the basement with the promise of exciting American cooking; menu highlights include wagyu with caramelised cream and grilled peach, lobster tail with hearts of palm and white curry, and barbecued aged duck with melon and Thai basil. There's also Paper, a coffee shop popular with the area's artistic sorts, and the patio for more green space.
