The location is absolutely great. It is on fifth avenue New York Metropolis so it is proper in the course of all the pieces and all the best shopping.
It is true across from Central Park and the Apple retailer and Bergdorf Goodman.
All the very best shopping is close by – Louis Vuitton, Tiffany and Co. Bvlgari, Ferragamo, and so forth. etc. it goes on and on. It is a short stroll (about 10-15 minutes) from Occasions Sq. and a fast 10 minute $7 cab journey there.
There are additionally tons of eating places close by.
Alright, sufficient about the location.
The lodge itself is beautiful. It’s old and traditional and it exhibits. I read that it has been recently renovated and it has been effectively performed. The hotel maintains the classy really feel of something that has aged properly and is elegant whereas not being dated and faded. Considered one of the only methods I may tell this was an previous resort have been the very small elevators however even that they had stunning wood work, mirrors and crystal chandeliers.
The room was the deluxe rose suite. It was a pretty giant room with a king sized bed with lush feather pillows on it. It was heaven. It had a sitting space, a chaise lounger in entrance of the mattress – two closets – and a large bathroom with the lovely vine mosaic tile work and gold detail all over the place.
The service was excellent. They hailed us cabs in the rain out in entrance of the lodge and opened our doors and closed them for us as we acquired in. They carried all our baggage for us. They opened and closed doorways…. it was what is anticipated from a lodge that boasts luxurious at it is best.
We ate breakfast our last day in the Palm Court – which is beautiful. The food was so-so. I’ve stayed at some excessive class resorts in my time: the Lodge Grande Bretagne in Athens, the Waldorf-Astoria in Rome, etc. and the breakfast here that was supplied continental was not on the level of this hotel. The eggs were runny and the pastry selection consisted of a few onerous muffins and another small croissants and such, not great. I used to be disillusioned. It was $35 a person which is about customary but for that price at other hotels I’ve had far better food. Not pleased with that. My pal did order from the menu vintage white salvadore ferragamo purse and acquired some superb french toast.
