The Best Point of View

At right is a suite at the Shangri-La hotel in Paris. It's featured in a Fromers article about hotels with great views. You have to admit, this isn't a bad way to see the Eiffel Tower. About half of the rooms and suites offer views similar to this. And the other rooms? Well, you're still looking out at Paris. What could better?

Fromers discusses locations from Weehawken, N.J., to Vienna to Bora Bora. (Hint: The Weehawken view isn't of New Jersey.)
