Taking in views of New York City’s famed skyline is on most people’s bucket lists. From icons like the Chrysler and Empire State buildings to the Brooklyn Bridge and Central Park, these vistas are practically the reason why Instagram was invented. But what if you could take in some of the Big Apple’s most iconic architecture and other attractions without ever having to get out from under the covers? Certain rooms at these eight hotels offer spectacular views right from their beds, which means you might just want to snuggle in and skip lining up for the tourist attractions altogether.
