I love (cool) hotels

While in New York, we stayed at one of the uber-chic W hotels - the W Court on Murray Hill, a neighborhood in the upper 30s between Park and Lexington.

Perhaps my favorite part of the hotel, besides the Bliss products, was that every afternoon they would have snacks and drinks waiting in the lobby. One day it was truffles and champagne punch, another day it would be a pitcher of iced water with mint and strawberries. Yum.

The lobby was perpetually dim, no matter what time of day.

They had an i-Pod dock and charger next to the alarm clock, which made things super convenient.

There was a stack of design and art magazines next to the chaise lounge. No mere "Good Housekeeping" for the W, no sir. Though I did wish they were willing to lower themselves to pedestrian level and stock some US Weeklies.

The "Bliss Sinkside Six-Pack." My favorite was the Body Butter. One afternoon we saw the housekeeper cart standing in the hallway unattended with the mother lode of this stuff, so I pilfered a whole bunch. Shhh. Next time I'm up in New York I'm hoping to pay a vist to the Bliss Spa.

I love hotels.

VERY nice! I love hotels too! Once Pete & I stayed at the Ritz here in our city just because we wanted to!
