No hotel combines better ultraluxury digs with incredible views than this gem. Heaven begins after a rocketing ride on the elevators to the rooms, located between the 38th and 48th floors of a high-rise. The opulent rooms feature soothing contemporary and out-of-this-world bedding (including a pillow menu), but the best details by far are the huge windows with superb city views, particularly when the fog rolls in. Not all rooms have bathtub-side views (incredible and standard with the signature rooms), but every one does have a luxurious marble bathroom stocked with terry and cotton cloth robes,  and a makeup mirror. The 2,000-square-foot Regency SKyline Terrace Suite suite -- which has a living room, dining area, bedroom, roomy bathroom, and bay-view balcony half the size of a football field -- is twice as big as my entire house.
