New York State's hotels are as diverse as the state itself. Lounge with a glass of Riesling at a luxury resort in the Finger Lakes, ski the slopes of Hunter Mountain and retire to a gay-owned bed and breakfast, ride horses and return to a castle just miles from New York City, or take in the Manhattan skyline from a rooftop pool in Brooklyn, there is an option for any kind of getaway. We chatted with travel writers from all over the country to find some of the grandest, most unique, and luxurious accommodations that make up the Empire State.
