NYC’s City Club hotel WHY The chicly understated midtown property is so discreet, co-owner Jeff Klein refuses to name any of the A-listers who’ve stayed there: ”It’s for people who are too fabulous for that.” VIP TREATMENT The second floor offers a guests-only lounge…so occupants don’t need to wait on street level (with the hoi polloi) for their cars. LOOK OUT FOR Chocolate-marble bathrooms stocked with Hermes products; original artwork — selected by Michael Douglas’ and David Bowie’s personal designer Jeffrey Bilhuber — in each room. ”You can cocoon and be comfy and cozy, but it’s also very elegant and sophisticated,” says Klein. ”Normally when you create something comfy, it’s Vermont-y.” ROOM SERVICE Hotel guests can order nibbles from celeb chef Daniel Boulud’s adjoining db Bistro Moderne restaurant, home of the $29 foie gras-and-truffle burger and a flock of famous diners. Among those spotted at the eatery: Woody Allen, Robert De Niro, Billy Crystal, Alicia Silverstone, Jason Biggs, and Kathleen Turner.
