Situated near the quaint Tudor City area, Crowne Plaza at the United Nations is home to a small army of diplomats and heads-of-state from around the globe. In order to cater to its international clients, the hotel staff speaks Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Spanish and Turkish. Each of the 300 newly decorated guest rooms is furnished in a classic, European tradition, with marble floors, handmade carpets and hardwood reproduction furniture upholstered in brocades and velvets. Yes, there are even bidets in the bathrooms—très European. A word of warning, however: cabs to Times Square and beyond are hard to come by, since the hotel is off-the-beaten Midtown path, so be prepared to walk.


The (scant) chance you might bump into U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan.

Though the distance from central Midtown is a refreshing change, getting back into the thick of things is a challenge, as cabs are few and far between. Wear comfortable shoes or secure a bus map.

Claim to Fame
The 20-story building was built in 1931 as the Tudor Hotel and is now a recognized historical landmark.
