New York City isn’t short on amazing hotels. From classics like The Plaza and the Waldorf Astoria, to ultra-cool upstarts like The James and Williamsburg’s Wythe Hotel, there are plenty of prime places for magnificent bastards to rest their heads.
But we’re not always in the mood for hotel life, and when the yearning for something different strikes, Airbnb is there to answer the call. We’ve combed the site’s listings to bring you the swankiest and sexiest pad available for booking in NYC – so swanky-sexy that even locals will be tempted to skip work tomorrow for a staycation.
There’s a hipster hideaway in Brooklyn with brightly coloured furnishings to match the borough’s artsy reputation. There’s a stylish East Village townhouse that was a synagogue in a former life. There’s a restored horse stable turned award-winning human residence. There are full floor lofts with window-lined walls and industrial charm. There’s quirky art, skyline views, private roof decks and terraces, and more exposed brick and ceiling beams than an architecture nerd could shake the proverbial stick at.
The bad news is, the Big Apple is currently embroiled a fierce war against the vacation rental company, so these delicious digs may not be available forever. If you want to experience the best Airbnbs in New York City, there’s no time to waste.
