Completely Confidential Crib

With a best-kept secret best kept, well, secret, it is with trepidation we share this one. But the West Side YMCA, steps away from Central Park West to the west and Lincoln Center to the east, offers rooms for as low as $92 a night. Posh? Certainly not, but completely functional with many perks: a 65,000-sq.-ft. fitness center, two pools, more than 100 group-fitness classes, a complete cardiovascular and weight training center, steam rooms, saunas, and basketball, racquetball, handball, and squash courts. The on-premises café serves hot breakfasts, lunches, and dinners; there’s also a snack bar. Rooms with private bath go for up to $149. Holidays draw an eclectic, international crowd, ranging from school groups to aspiring musicians. Even so, the sight of limos transporting fur-clad doyennes to the door is not uncommon.
