From the bath with the best view of the city to a super swank rooftop overlooking the Empire State Building, there is nothing better than a pleasant site for the eyes. Check out these top views of New York City.

1 Mandarin Oriental

For a serious room with a view at the ultimate level of luxury, nothing is better than the Mandarin Oriental. For a most relaxing afternoon, start at the Lobby Lounge by enjoying Napoleonic sensations during an afternoon tea while watching the city go by 38 floors below. Then check into your suite and enjoy a blissful relaxing bath with ultimate sweeping panorama of Central Park.

3 Marcel at Gramercy

Marcel at Gramercy is great space for enjoying a pipping hot cup of coffee and browsing The Wall Street Journal on your iPad over free wifi while taking in the serene vista of the Big Apple during the morning hours. There is a subdued chicness at this newly opened hotspot which has become a favorite almost overnight of celebrities and entertainment executives. Namedropping nightowls can enjoy VIP parties on the rooftop in summer months while business execs can enjoy the view from the meeting room.
