Warwick New York, USA
Built by William Randolph Hearst for his mistress, actress Marion Davies, the Warwick has a long history for housing many luminaries including Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn, Jane Russell, Elvis, The Beatles, Elizabeth Taylor and James Dean. Plenty of historic features have been retained to exude an old world elegance, yet many modern comforts have been incorporated too. It has a fab location near Central Park and Midtown sights, and a choice of subway lines make exploration further afield a doddle. The comfortable guest rooms are spacious by New York standards, and feature simple, traditional, upmarket décor including antique-style furniture and marble bathrooms, with the décor of many suites displaying splashes of colour and individuality. Randolph's, the hotel's popular bar, restaurant and lounge, features an old-school club atmosphere.
Central Park is just a five-minute walk away.
The Museum of Modern Art is just around the corner, as is 5th Avenue and its famous shopping district.
By plane: flights from London, Manchester or Edinburgh to New York take 7 hours. It's 50-minutes' drive from JFK airport. Parking costs $80 per day. skyscanner.net
