From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:Given the relative architectural anonymity of this 60-story skyscraper just north of the Empire State Building, restraint would seem to be the watchword at the Setai. But past the phalanx of doormen, the stiff formality softens. Spacious rooms are filled with natural light, supple surfaces, and natural materials like walnut desks and leather headboards. All the rooms and suites have walnut wardrobes, bedside tables, and trim; wondrously comfortable Duxiana beds; and deep soaking tubs. Another 57 apartment suites have full stainless-steel kitchens. But space is the real luxury, as always, in Manhattan. Rooms start at a generous-forNew York 400 square feet. Such acreage, and the personal assistant assigned to each guest, don't come cheap, so brace yourself. The outstanding Italian restaurant Ai Fiori, is one of Michael White's (Marea, Osteria Morini). The sprawling Auriga spa has 11 treatment rooms. But perhaps the sweetest service of all is that there's no checkout hourthe ultimate luxury for any true traveler.2011 Hot List
