Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
No matter if you hate NYC or love NYC, you have to admit the skyline is pretty incredible. If you can, hop into a car, after sun down, turn on some jazz and drive down the FDR. This happened to me few years ago and it was one of those "wow I'm in NYC" moment. Something about the beat of jazz music, the lights and the buildings zooming by really got me inspired.
