The Jade Hotel may have just opened in February, but its design is definitely from a different era. The Art Deco-themed rooms (complete with vintage-inspired rotary telephones) are small but richly-decorated with shades of burgundy and gold. Not to mention the purple velvet lobby, whose library has a selection of classic New York-themed photography books. Meanwhile, at the hotel's Grape & Vine restaurant, guests can order 1920s-themed cocktails like the "Bee's Knees" (gin, honey, fresh lemon, $14) and "The Prankster" (gin, absinthe, fresh lime and soda, $14). Rates from $399/night.
We're fairly certain that Jay and Daisy would have been frequenters of lower Manhattan's uber-hip Bowery Hotel. Everything about the hotel—from the dark wood furnishings and floor-to-ceiling windows in the rooms, to the incredibly luxurious lobby with oriental rugs and a roaring fireplace—just screams old-world elegance.

Fans of the 107-year-old Knickerbocker Hotel will be happy to hear that the old girl is finally getting that renovation we've been hearing so much about (including a new rooftop bar!), and is set to re-open by the end of this year. In addition to its incredible 16-story Beaux Arts building, this hotel is apparently where Fitzgerald "went on a 3-day bender in 1919 with his Princeton pals." Classic.
The Algonquin has a rich literary history (the New Yorker was founded here at the Algonquin Round Table), so we can safely assume that Fitzgerald was no stranger to this place. The iconic hotel received a touch-up last summer and the new guest rooms all feature L'Occitane toiletries, power outlets on all desks and bedside tables, and historic photographs of NYC on the walls. Rates from $499/night.
