Martha Washington

I came across the hotel very randomly but it just seemed to be a perfect fit for my stay in New York post NYE. Very close to the Empire State Building, walking distance to Fifth Avenue and home to the latest talk of town, Marta. Once I booked, the Concierge team, Rachel, Gillian and Rene [...]

Lowell Hotel, Upper East Side

The Warm and Welcoming Hotel Lobby serving Apple Cider and Hot Chocolate whilst you check in Kick starting the New Year with 2 nights on the Upper East Side was amazing.

Nothing beats a coffee and cupcake with the onset of Autumn in the heart of Belgravia. After a very long time I really enjoyed sitting outside sipping on an Americano and treating myself to a Red Velvet cupcake with a friend. Bliss! Peggy Porschen is worthwhile once in a while!

A very nostalgic memory - hope I [...]

I especially enjoyed the ambience, the quirky village location and the steak was truly American. Big, juicy and with a massive portion of fries. Thanks to [...]

I vowed to walk everywhere in New York even though everyone warned me that my feet would eventually kill me but I was quite adamant. Took me 25 minutes to walk from the Paramount Hotel to [...]
