It’s a tricky business to write a hotel review. I mean, think about it. How much can one say? There is a room, a bed, bath and hopefully, it’s clean and comfortable with a sense of style. That about wraps it up, don’t you think? But every now and then we come across a hotel(s) with a little something extra that makes us sit up and take notice. And that’s the case when it comes to the 4 boutique hotels in the Library Hotel Collection in New York City; each offering the finest in accommodations.
Books. In a day and age when electronics reign supreme, it’s good to know people still pick up a book. A real book, possibly even a library book, and not just open their Kindle or device of preference, but rather hold an actual book. The smell of the pages. The feel of a faded dog-eared page marking a stopping point. And illustrations. Old-school illustrations with captions.
“I go to Paris, I go to London, I go to Rome, and I always say, “There’s no place like New York. It’s the most exciting city in the world now. That’s the way it is. That’s it.” Robert De Niro
Is it just me or have the nightly rates of accommodations become ridiculously over priced? And what about finding said accommodations? Finding what you’re looking for in accommodations when it comes to location, quality and affordability has become more and more of a challenge. For those of us who believe planning is half the fun, booking accommodations is fast becoming a royal pain in the arse.
Never let it be said that there is not a lot to shout about when it comes to points programs. Abi and I have been working the points programs for years (and years). And I talk about Hilton so much that maybe one day the company’s powers-to-be will pay me to stay with them! Ha!
It’s the title of my – our – life these days. Organized chaos.
Here’s the thing, we actually closed escrow on the sale of Abigail’s on March 31. Yep. It’s true. And let no one have any doubt that I can keep a secret. Ha!
