  1. Since I view the site on Google Reader, I can see posts even after you deleted them. So, my answer to the A-Lister hotel is the Trump International. Was I right?

  2. Yeah, Trump would have been my guess too. Incidently, the tall white hotel tower on opposite side of the park is The Pierre. It’s former ballroom is now a penthouse for sale. Might be interesting to do a piece on that, as it is supposed to be quite something.

  3. Mandarin Oriental at Columbus Circle?

  4. The Mayflower? Oh wait, that’s not exactly A-list…but I did stay there for a movie job in early 2001 so I remember that view.

  5. The Ritz-Carlton

  6. This is just a shot in the dark, but is it John Lennon’s room? It would be appropriate….

  7. Since the Post caption is “A view from an A-Lister’s hotel room”; I would say you were at the Carlyle

  8. It is from Columbus Circle — which looks to be Mandarin Oriental – in the Time Warner Center.

    The Mayflower hotel has been gone for years – it’s now 15 CPW, which is has some of the most expensive real estate in NYC – that and TWC. I love – and live on the upper west side. This is my hood.

  9. since my DH built the darn TWC, I’m guessing from the angle this is Trump Intl.. a tad north of it.

  11. I was going to say 15 Central Park West. Does that have a hotel though? I don’t think so.
