Best Elevator - 2012
The Westin St. Francis
A poor man's drop zone, the glass elevator at Westin St. Francis catapults riders up 32 stories and takes them down again, offering an impressive view of Union Square and making riders giddy with adrenaline. Rumor has it that back in the day the elevator moved so quickly that patrons became nauseous. Although it has calmed down a bit, the elevator still remains for the more adventurous aficionado. Walk in, follow the signs to the Tower Elevators, and brace for a ride like no other.
