New York. It sums up soooo many images – yellow cabs, Central Park, movie scenes, Broadway… and in my case, hundreds of amazing wedding dresses and The Lotte New York Palace hotel!
I’ve been staying as a guest at this hotel for NY Bridal Week for the last few years, and my goodness, it’s only getting better. It is in the perfect location (on Madison Avenue in midtown Manhattan, dangerously close to the stores on Fifth Avenue). The view from my room was overlooking St Patrick’s Cathedral and the glorious hussle of NY life.
One of my favourite memories of this trip was a working breakfast in my room. Bircher muesli followed by brioche French toast anyone? No words!
Speaking of my room… well! What. A. Room. Huge, modern, with a bed so big (super king-size) you feel… a bit lost! The marble bathrooms and deep baths were a welcome relief from the five days of frantic front row trend spotting (okay, okay, it’s hardly traumatic work, but it is manic!).
THE WORLD'S MOST BEAUTIFUL HONEYMOON HOTELS
The fab gym and spa take up over 7,000 square feet in the hotel, and it’s pretty impressive. Initially I decided to try to rid myself of jetlag by running it out in the gym… but the next day resorted to an express massage…guess which I preferred?!
The hotel would be perfect for a minimoon, honeymoon, or even your actual wedding! One thing I know for sure is that I’ll be back on that staircase as soon as I can…
