Sun-lounger with a side of Empire-State, please.

Good food makes this boy smile.

The look of a pool-shark.

Hey there, Park Avenue.

All ours for the night.

Right before we dug in.

Too cosy for real work.

Poolside service.

Pool gazing.

Summer Sundays done right.

This goes well with the pool table.

Old school apothecary touches.

Diving into you later…

Obsessed with this extra long plush pink couch.

Highs & Lows

  • Rooftop pool – the best part about this place for sure. Pools are a sighting in the wild of NYC. The pool is only for hotel guests, so there was plenty of space to stretch out, get some sun and grab a drink.

  • The service – every staff member we came across was over-the-top nice, and went out of their way to make you as comfortable as possible, and wanted you to have fun!

  • Pool table in our room! What a fun touch. We finally learnt how to play pool like a pro.

  • Cosy lobby & fireplace – we hung out here for ages, it’s the best place to watch NYC go by. It’s feels a little mad-hatter tea party and the fireplace is mesmerizing.

  • Allow enough time to grab breakfast. We ate at Ristorante Asselina, it took a moment for food to come out.

  • The in-room speakers are a little too good – we were asked (albeit very kindly) to keep the volume down. Oops!
