Seriously, out of all the times I have stayed in New York City this has to be the best hotel I have been in. Although I have stayed in a myriad of modern hotels and some gaudy ones, but this takes the crown. Located in the hip Lower East Side, it is tucked away from the tourist bonanza in a gayborhood that is fast becoming New York’s trendiest with boutique shops popping up everywhere and a high ratio of young New Yorkers. The service in the hotel is opulent and the staff are ready to help. The mini-bar has more alcohol in it than Karen Walker’s home and the ground floor is always full with New York’s finest freaks. What else would you want?
