The style, sexiness, and glamor of Don Draper and his lifestyle are quickly becoming a mainstay of popular culture.

But even though Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce may be a fictional agency, the advertising industry of the real world still has an allure (now partly fueled by the show, of course) for its sleek tendencies and over-the-top tactics for wooing clients.

We've done our research and come up with hotels that modern day Don Draper's will love, so grab a fresh drink, tell Joan to hold your calls and take a look!

THEN: Manhattan is Don's primary stomping grounds, especially now that he's swapped in the house in Ossening and his West Village bachelor's pad for a swagged-out penthouse that he shares with Megan. Of course, the early days of SCDP were launched from a suite in the Pierre. But despite Don's sharp suits and sleek look, he his creative spirit has always helped him fit in with the hip downtown crowds.

NOW: New York has changed a lot since the 60s, and the Midtown that SCDP once inhabited is now clogged with tourist traps and overpriced dining: Today's creatives look elsewhere to entertain and tend to find themselves Downtown. The Thompson LES is an oasis of gorgeous design on the still-slightly-gritty Lower East Side. Ad execs will appreciate the chic rooms, swanky bar, close location to some of New York's best nightlife, as well as the pool, sauna, and fitness center available to guests.
