Jake’s at The Knick NYC

The Knickerbocker Hotel has been one of the most anticipated openings of 2015 in New York (atleast for me). I am so delighted to have had the opportunity to see the hotel and also try out Jake’s – the super cool new cafe part of the hotel.

The Knickerbocker is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World. I believe it is the only 5 star ultra luxury hotel in the Times Square area and was much needed.

Jake’sΒ is one of the coolest cafe’s I have seen. In the shape of a very chic tunnel, it is understated yet glamorous. Perfect for a small break before you head out to tour the city!



Summer at The Lowell

The Lowell is one of those hotels that keeps getting better with service, attention to detail and warmth. This was my second visit to the hotel since January this year and I had one of the best times ever!

I got the opportunity to stay in a lovely Michael Smith designed Junior Suite. With it’s own kitchenette, lounge area and spacious bathroom it is perfect for a summer getaway. I have to say The Lowell did not forget my choice of newspapers from last time and the staff still remembered my name. I cannot emphasise enough how genuine the service and friendliness of the Lowell family is. It is privately tucked away on a street off Madison Avenue yet close to all major shopping attractions and museums of the Upper East Side.
