Mighty Edition towering over the city.

Slick home in the clouds.

The only place I would rather be when jetlag comes along.

Yes, I am one of those intermittent fasters now. Coffee was great, but other people's breakfast looked greater.

Beautiful reception with really warm and jolly staff to welcome you.

The design of the lobby is so elegant I started calling myself “miss”.

I adore this view. The crazy madness of Times Square versus the oasis of green and lush terrace.

Seriously enjoying the multi glazed windows and the silence of Edition.

This is me hitting the gym. It’s easy. Hit and run.

The combination of clean minimal leather booths, copper mid century lamps and marble table tops is exactly what I like to have with my meal.

Something’s telling me Frank Sinatra would approve of this bar.

View from my room, the ultimate entertainment.


Paradise Club. Dinner..


…and a show.

Highs & Lows

  • The scent! Custom made Le Labo Edition scent is intoxicating. The only hotel I hoard the toiletries at.

  • Overall stay. Probably the best oiled hotel stay I’ve ever had, from service to functionality of the room.

  • Paradise Club. A hidden kinky gem in the belly of the hotel. Dinner and a show by House Of Yes. NY experience to the max.

  • Location wouldn’t be my top pick, but I thoroughly appreciate the stark contrast between Times Sq madness and Editions enchanting refuge.
