When I travel I like to think I do it well.Make the most of it and take in the city you are in and lets be honest its not like I am free to run the town and be travelling around the world all year so when it happens , it’s on!

Not a hard task in the city of dreams. She has my heart.

ACCOMMODATION

.NYDA: A New York Travel Guide best new hotel 768485

For me accommodation is my thing, I need to be on top of this and I am a bit of a princess when it comes to where we stay. When I travelled Europe with my bestie who when we started said she is ok with back packing and hostels…. I embrace the city but I put my foot down with this. This does not mean you have to be splashin the cash either – Booking dot com.

My Top Stays

Crosby Street Hotel – Soho. Concierge are awesome. Let them book you dinner and live like a local. Book the black and white themed room. All room types are amazing. Very cosy feel to the whole hotel.

The Broome – Soho. Boutique hotel in the heart of Soho. If you can get the penthouse suite – larger and not that crazy in price.

The Mercer – Really cool minimal style. The Mercer and Courtyard rooms are not great so if you stay the suites and lofts are the beautiful rooms with floor boards and brick interiors but you have to pay for it.

The Ludlow – Art Deco meets Moroccan styling. Maison Martin Margiela robes to go with the most perfect bathroom. LES feels really local New York with some of the best places to eat opening up here with the cool crowd moving into this Manhattan working class area.

One Fine Stay  and Airbnb – Really live like a New Yorker here. We all know how this rolls. I am yet to travel in a group to get one of the pimpin apartments but I have heard nothing but good things.

Your accommodation location isn’t a deal breaker. You can get around New York so easily wether its the subway or Uber/cabs and you will go to all the burbs and explore everything other than where you sleep.

EAT / DAY

Pretty important notes as a girls gotta eat and you will need to stay for a while to cover it all which is fine with me. Cocktails don’t go astray either and the New Yorkers can do  cocktail!

Your concierge is a great tool to use as they will book you places that the locals love. Open Table online is great for pre planning as well to make reservations ahead of time to be prepared. I am more of a see how we feel kinda girl but we did pre book a few (Buddakan and Beauty & Essex)
