He’s ours now, but back when Celtics power forward Kris Humphries was Mr. Kim Kardashian, he lived in the Presidential Suite of the Gansevoort Park Avenue hotel during the filming of “Kourtney and Kim Take New York.” It’s yours for a cool $7,000 per night, unless pop queens Christina Aguilera or Katy Perry — rumored guests — have already booked it. This 249-room urban hotel lends a dash of South Beach sizzle to the newly branded NoMad (north of Madison Park) neighborhood, with splashes of hot pink (love the tufted sofa in the lobby!) and teal. Photos of lingerie-clad ladies serve as artwork. But the major brag-worthy amenity is New York’s first heated indoor-outdoor rooftop pool, one of the few hotel pools in Manhattan. Seriously, you can float on your back, 20 stories up, and gaze up at the Empire State Building. Now that’s living large. Or simply settle into a banquette for a cocktail at the tri-level rooftop bar and take in the view. The bar scene is definitely happening, and everyone (celebs and mere mortals alike) works off the damages with a Core Fusion class at the on-site Exhale mind-body spa. Rooms from $395.
