Best Rooms: The 3 Bedroom Suites have the best views from higher floors because they face many different direction and offer panoramic cityscape views and views of the East River. If you're just looking for a Studio or a 1 Bedroom Suite, request the highest floor possible for the best city view.
Best Rooms: Junior Suites on floor 10 or higher offer great views of both the East River and the cityscape.

2.5 star hotel
Area: Astoria, New York
1.58 mi from Socrates Sculpture Park
Best Rooms: Fairfield Inn Astoria is situated on one of the blocks next to Astoria Blvd. S surrounded by buildings, so you don't find much in the way of views.
5 star hotel
Area: Midtown East, New York
1.91 mi from Socrates Sculpture Park
Best Rooms: The hotel has both Park View and City View rooms. The Park View is requested more often and is nicer to have during the day, but the city lights make the City View rooms more desirable at night.
Best Rooms: The front side of the hotel has a view of 54th St. but as such, it tends to be noisier.
Best Rooms: The hotel is surrounded by other buildings so you won't find much of a view, but your best option is to request a room overlooking Lexington Avenue on a lower floor.
