by Kelsey Blodget on May 27, 2010

The opening weekend of Sex and the City 2 is finally here, and we’ve selected four hip hotels in downtown Manhattan to match the personalities of everyone’s favorite women about town. Whether you consider yourself a “Carrie” or a “Charlotte,” we’ve picked the perfect place — so pack your stiletto heels and get ready for a glamorous trip to the Big Apple.

The Carrie: Boho-chic luxury at the Bowery Hotel

  • Price: $375/night & up
  • Location: East Village, New York City
  • Why it’s Carrie: The hotel’s vintage, boho-chic design reminds us of Carrie’s funky fashion sense. The hotel redefined class in a neighborhood where punk rock and squalor once ruled, and like Carrie, it was an instant classic.

  • Location: West Village, New York City
  • Why it’s Samantha: This sexy hotel packs a lot of va va voom — exhibitionist-friendly windows (you can see in from the outside) in the mod rooms;  groundbreaking design; and three ultra-trendy night spots. Plus, it’s in the Meatpacking District, where Samantha moved after disapproving tenants drove her out of her old apartment.
