Crosby Street Hotel
Downstairs in the basement, there’s a screening room available to hire whenever you fancy a private showing.
Boutique spa Haven on Mercer Street (+1 212 343 3515; www.havensoho.com) will take care of all your beauty needs – ask for Yasmin if it’s waxing you’re after, and we recommend Gabby for a flawless manicure and pedicure. Liberty Helicopters on West 30th Street and 12th Avenue (+1 212 967 6464) will whisk you around the Manhattan skyline and out to the Statue of Liberty. It also offers airport transfers.
Beautifully decorated by the talented Kit Kemp, you wake up feeling that you are sleeping in a beautiful apartment rather than a hotel.
The lounge and restaurant downstairs are gorgeous and the food and drinks are great. A candle on arrival, plush bedding and well thought through mini bar made this an unforgettable hotel experience which I hope to have again when I'm next in New York.
It is the most gorgeous hotel lobby, I've ever set foot in and the day I was there, I practically had it to myself!
When you walk in there are quite a few sculptures and then you go into the drawing room. Though the scheme is red, the designer and owner of the Crosby, Kit Kemp, has mixed and matched pink hues along side the red. There are quite a few couches and reading chairs. You have a waiter catering to your every whim and a serene courtyard in the back.
I sat here for four hours and read. I could have stayed here all day.
