FEATURES
Checking Out, Checking In

A New York hotel is far more than a place to crash. It's a stage, a social world, an art form. To bring you up to speed on the state of the art, our writers slept over at the city's highest-profile hotels -- the new breed of luxury boutiques -- rating them on everything from service, value, décor, and amenities to their celebrity quotient. Our report on fifteen hot spots, from the Hudson, where the lobby is a 24-hour nightclub, to the Library, whose rooms are organized by -- Laura Bush, take note -- the Dewey Decimal System. Plus: the best of New York's classics. And a guide to budget beds.

Dawn Patrol
BY SARAH BERNARD

NY1 morning host Pat Kiernan does his own makeup, runs his own TelePrompTer, and cooks French toast for the a.m. shift at his anchor desk. But with dry delivery, an unflappable manner, and afternoon gigs on CNNfn and Canadian television, he's helped his fledgling channel grab more than its share of morning media junkies. Watch your back, Matt Lauer.

Hillary's Female Trouble
BY MICHAEL TOMASKY

Soon after her campaign began, Hillary Clinton realized she had a problem. She couldn't win the election without strong support from women, and many women -- whether because of how she'd dealt with her husband's infidelities, or because she was perceived as cold, manipulative, grasping, or worse -- couldn't stand her. In an excerpt from his forthcoming book, Hillary's Turn, this magazine's "City Politic" columnist tells the inside story of how one of the most controversial senatorial candidates the state has ever seen won an election that was anything but a sure thing.
