8. A Park Avenue Penthouse with a Private Terrace

One word: Views. This immaculately decorated penthouse with a private terrace is worth every penny, and can fit up to six guests in its two bedrooms and large, open living area. Enjoy views of the skyline from any of the rooms — the master bedroom also provides a closer look at the Chrysler building.

Rates from $636 to $1,000 per night depending on your dates, with a minimum two-night stay required.


Maximize Your Purchase

There are plenty of ways to maximize your stay with points and miles. If you’ve never used Airbnb before, sign up through TPG to get $40 off your first booking — and the gravy train doesn’t stop there. Book through the Delta portal and earn 1 SkyMile for every dollar spent on your stay, and make sure to charge the purchase to a travel rewards card to rack up extra points. Using a card like the Chase Sapphire Preferred will get you 2x points on all travel purchases while the Chase Sapphire Reserve will get you 3x points on an Airbnb stay. When you combine the two, you’re effectively double-dipping with your points earning.
