Grand Hyatt New York
Park Ave. at Grand Central Terminal

The Grand Hyatt's lobby is huge, with a four-story ceiling, waterfall fountains, and trees. The décor in its 1,336 rooms isn't particularly stylish, but it's comfortable and there's plenty of space. You'll find the usual big-hotel services and amenities: a sprawling bar, a restaurant, and a fitness center. Summer rates start at $179.

The Millennium Hotel New York Broadway
145 W. 44th St.

This 52-floor hotel is geared toward business travelers, but it's well-suited for the leisure set as well, with amazing views of the city and 750 well-appointed rooms. The hotel doesn't make much of a style statement, but you'll be well taken care of, and there's plenty to amuse you, including a restaurant, bar, and fitness center. Weekend rates in summer from $179.

Sofitel New York
45 W. 44th St.

This midtown hotel opened on Bastille Day 2000, and the owners have sprinkled Parisian touches throughout the 398 upscale Art Deco rooms and common areas. The lobby has a grand staircase, fluted columns, and marble floors. There's also a French bistro on-site. Amenities include a fully equipped fitness center and a bakery — with gre
at croissants, of course. Summer rates start at around $259.
