These are individual hotels, resorts, boutique hotels, inns, B&Bs and other 'accommodations' in New York State that I have come across and think are worth checking out.

Clearly, though subjective, this list is very far from comprehensive, but it's a start. As it expands I'll sub-divide it down into smaller categories based on accommodation types and locations.
Adirondack Mountains
Lake House Lake Placid Classic old 1960s motel on Lake Placid, now a 44-room boutique hotel with retro touches.
Point, The Adirondack Mountains Five-star Relais & Chateaux resort property with a main lodge and 11 rooms in log cabins on a small peninsula jutting out into Lake Saranak in the Adirondack Park. It was built in the 1890's as a retreat for one of the Rockefellers.
Porcupine, The Adirondack Mountains Luxury historic inn at Saranac Lakes.
Sagamore, The Bolton Landing, Lake George Historic and rather glamorous resort in a lakeside setting on the eastern borders of NY state.
Hudson Valley/ Catskills
Inn at Green River Hudson Valley Cosy B&B in the Berkshire hills.
Inn at Silver Maple Farm Hudson Valley Eleven-room inn in the Berkshires.
Mohonk Mountain House Hudson Valley Grand heritage property perched dramatically on the edge of a lake in the Catskill mountains. (One of the more memorable locations I've ever stayed! - Ed). They have recently (Sept 05) opened an eco-friendly spa with geothermal heating & a/c and a turf roof. The spa an indoor pool, gym, outdoor mineral pool, and 16 treatment rooms.
New York City
Carlton Arms New York An 'art hotel' with a style all of its own.
Chatwal, The New York 5-star hotel on 44th Street in midtown Manhattan. It occupies the 1905 building that was the Art Deco home of America's cult theatrical society The Lambs (members included Charlie Chaplin, Fred Astaire and John Barrymore).
Crosby Street Hotel New York Kit and Tim Kemp's (Firmdale Hotels) first luxury boutique hotel in New York (they have six of them in London), opened in late 2009.

Ink48 New York Formerly the VU Hotel, this 222-room, 17-story hotel with colossal windows, soaring ceilings and unobstructed panoramic views of Times Square & the Hudson River, is now part of the Kimpton group of hotels and is re-named to reflect the building's printing press history back in the 1930's.
Jane, The New York starHistoric hotel on the waterfront, originally a seamans' mission. It was here the survivors of the Titanic stayed. Now it's a refurbished and exhilaratingly anarchic budget hotel for younger travellers...but the small cabins are still small cabins without bathrooms.
Kitano, The New York New York’s first Japanese hotel, opened in 1973 on Park Avenue, Murray Hill, Manhattan. The hotel has 149 guestrooms, including 17 contemporary suites, a "one-of-a-kind" Japanese Tatami Suite, and the Michelin-rated Hakubai Restaurant.
Nu Hotel Brooklyn Newly built (July 08) 93-room, minimalist design hotel with three guest room styles: Nu Standard, Nu Friends Suite (with bunk beds), and Nu Urban Suite.
Standard, The New York Not much to look at from the outside, but stunning views from luxurious rooms with floor to ceiling windows, make up for it. This is a new (2009) sister hotel to hotelier Andre Balazs' Standard in Los Angeles. It's located in the suddenly-trendy Meatpacking District (once meat warehouses, now art galleries & restaurants), and that walkway under the hotel is urban parkland created on the old High Line elevated rail track.
