Hotel Hopping in NYC

Last week I spent a day checking out hotels in NYC for an event I am helping to plan. Nothing beats visiting some of NYC's trendiest lofts and penthouse suites on a gorgeous sunny day.

First up was the Hotel Giraffe. The rooftop terrace is amazing....can't you just picture a chic cocktail party out here:

The room itself was used for Mr. Big's apartment in the first SATC movie. I nearly passed out from excitement!

Here is the before...

Here it is as Mr. Big's place back in the movie!

After that visit it was off to a delicious outdoor lunch at the Bryant Park Grill. A cool class of iced tea beautifully presented with a sprig of mint and lemon paired nicely with my lobster burger. Delish.

After resting our feet on the lawn back at Bryant Park...it was such a beautiful day...

....we headed over to The Royalton. It took my breathe away. I stayed here about 10 years or so ago when it first opened and let me tell you, the renovation they did three years ago made it even more amazingly cool.

Just look at that fab light fixture in the lobby (which is super dark, like you're entering the coolest secret club house ever)...

The rooms were amazing too...this tub in the penthouse loft (um, $3000 a night!!) was enough to make me drool with envy over anyone that can afford to actually stay there.

The smaller penthouse suites however, were just perfect...this terrace was just so pretty.

How about you...what are some of your favorite hotels in NYC...or around the globe?!
